Power Rangers has always been something that I enjoyed but never really followed too much, mainly because I had Godzilla and King Kong and other Japanese monster properties growing up. I enjoy a lot of the episodes but I honestly feel like the show is a tiny bit repetitive. Of course there are stand out story arches, and of course the special effects were fun because of the show that they took the footage from was something that I would have loved to watch.
Of course I had my doubts with this film mainly because of the recent Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle films, I felt like this could have been exactly like those two series of films. I’m so relieved that isn’t the case at all. The acting is great and the action is spectacular, even though it is a bit sloppy at times. The dialog is at times a little messy along with the camera work, but the acting though pulls through and helps bring this film to the enjoyment levels that I had with the film.
I can understand that people would be upset that the movie takes too long to get to where people came to the theater to see and that was the power rangers getting their suits and kicking putty ass. But sadly that doesn’t come in til about 3/4 of the way through the film. I honestly didn’t mind only because I was really enjoying everything that led to it. I was so glad to find myself smiling and laughing along with the movie and I can’t wait to see what this series carries on from here. 4/5
