Summary : Power Rangers, while not perfect is a fun ride that's a little darker than expected.
The Power Rangers were a very large part of my early years. I remember watching every episode on Fox network, owning all the toys, and practicing my Hip-Hopkido (shout out to the original Black Ranger). I was all about the Power Rangers. I won’t lie, I was one of the old school fans that crapped all over the new armor and the look of this film when they started to show the preview pictures. To my surprise the armor isn’t so bad once they are in motion honestly they look good.
The Zords are another matter. They remind me way too much of the terrible Transformers from the Micheal Bay films. Let’s just say I’m not a fan. I did like most of the actors they picked for the Rangers especially Billy. He was the heart of this film. RJ Cyler did his thing in this movie.
Bryan Cranston mystified me as a choice for Zordon but he does a good job as the floating head leader of the good guys. Rita Repulsa as played by Elizabeth Banks is absolutely awesome. She is scary in many ways but also a little campy in the spirit of the source material.
