If you came here looking for a good review of the remake of ‘Power Rangers’, I am sorry but I am about to disappoint you. As a child of around 6/7 years old we world got to meet the TV show ‘Power Rangers’ and I was HOOKED. Didn’t take long before my school told EVERY student we wasn’t allowed to watch it because of the violence but knowing my mother, she didn’t listen and let me watch it instead because she knew I could separate fiction from reality. Very quickly ‘Power Rangers’ became a big part of my childhood and I never missed one episode. So when I heard about a remake turning film I didn’t exactly know what to do or say. But I was willing to give it a chance. The trailer looked super cool when it was released.
‘Power Rangers’ is about a bunch of misfit kids who met each other in abnormal circumstances, to quickly realize they got super powers after finding stones. To then find out about a group of heroes called Power Rangers and it’s been 65 million years since last Power Rangers. Their job is to protect a crystal from Rita Repulsa, also known as the green Power Ranger – uhuh, a Power Ranger turned evil. The kids have a hard time dealing with her but you know in the end bla bla CLICHE!
I had a really hard time adjusting to this remake, it had cool effects and we got to see the comedian Elisabeth Banks as the villian Rita & Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) as Zordon. That was quite fun. But the film as a whole – don’t waste your time. If you want a better remake let me suggest Ghostbusters? I was really disappointed that the creators of the new ‘Power Rangers’ didn’t give us the wow factor or a nostalgia trip, not for me. I’d rather watch the original version from the 90’s and laugh the horrible effects but loving it because it was part of my childhood.
