Trivia

Some Angel Grove street signs read "Reefside" and "Ocean Bluff Rd." These are a reference to Power Rangers DinoThunder (2004) and Power Rangers Jungle Fury (2008), which were set in the cities of Reefside and Ocean Bluff. In the movie Sam Scott also mentions "Mariner Bay", a location from Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue (2000). See more »

Goofs

When the teens are swimming through the subterranean lake, while they are nominally swimming down/sideways towards the cave with the ship, the bubbles they're exhaling move "forward" from their face, revealing that they're really facing up, and the effect is being accomplished by altering the camera orientation.

A Mess that Could have been Nostalgic Fun,
15 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Power Rangers is an atrocious movie with a poorly developed plot and an disinterested cast. I did not have high expectations for this film, but I was a fan of the television series as a child and thought it would be a fun tribute. Instead of that, it takes what made the Power Rangers a hit in the late nineties and forcefully updates it for today's standards, taking itself far too seriously for such a ridiculous property.

The majority of the cast are uninspired, clearly only there for a pay check. The Rangers, with the exception of RJ Cyler and Ludi Lin, seem to have no desire or ambition to act. The more A list cast do not shine either, Elizabeth Banks is far too sweet and attractive to thrill us as the lead antagonist, while Bryan Cranston just seemed out of place, which was a shame, as he could do so much better.

For an action film, it is not very exciting. It takes up far too much time setting up the Rangers, followed by about twenty minutes of poor action sequences that are jam packed with CGI and poor one liners.

I found myself regretting my decision to watch this movie more and more throughout. Dull and poorly paced, Power Rangers is too serious to be fun, but not serious enough to be intriguing, I would avoid this one.

A group of teenagers use new powers that they have been bestowed with to protect the galaxy.

Best Performance: RJ Cyler / Worst Performance: Elizabeth Banks
