    Well I do look big dumb action film occasionally so I will check this one out at some point. I have never seen the original Power Rangers, but I guess that is a good thing, since I have heard that this new version has pretty much nothing to do with the original series 😊 Great post!

    Even though I watched power rangers as a kid when forced, I never liked it/the show. When I saw the beginning of this trailer I was excited, until I saw what it was. But I was prepared to give it a chance, partly because I like recreations and partly because we watch so many movies as a family anything that can appeal to all of us (parents and kids) is a bonus. I was leery about going to this, but after your review I’ll give it a chance, and go in expecting an entertaining afternoon. Thanks!

      You got it! I think the best way to watch this film is with tempered expectations. It has obvious flaws. But if you go into it looking to have a fun, dumb time at the theater than you’ll enjoy yourself!

    Good review. Personally, I liked the movie. I knocked it down a few pegs (due to me being a movie critic), but I had a fun time watching it. Brought back a lot of childhood memories.

    Great post. I love Power Rangers and am admittedly still watching the newer series as a 26-year-old adult. 😂 Shame that this isn’t a better film!

    A while back, Adi Shankar made a dark and gritty reboot on YouTube, and it had such potential. I wish Saban would take a chance at a more adult-oriented adaptation like that.

    I haven’t seen it yet (I’m 28 year old, so it’s kinda odd to go to cinema full with toddlers). I’m going to find other way to see it. However, if they take a dump on my childhood, well, that will only prove that kids of today are way more spoiled than we were. I preparing to hate it with a passion. Nice text, you got me interested.
