    I grew up in the era of Power Rangers, but it wasn't a show I normally watched. I will blame it on me being a girl and not as interested in a boy driven show. Fast forward to all the previews for this movie. It looked so DIFFERENT from what I recall from the original series. It seemed more REAL. The characters weren't the "goody-goody" kids who got straight A's and told lessons of being a good friend. These new rangers were raw with emotions and lives where not everything was "perfect". I did rent this before buying and it was so good that I had to get it. I was able to get behind each character, the way they ticked, what drove them, and what they wanted. It's rare when a "reboot" is appreciated when it is very different from the original. I felt that this brought Power Rangers to the REAL WORLD and not some fantasy world where there is always a happy ending. This is the first movie in this series and I really hope they continue it! I want to see this rag tag group continue to grow. They are going to handle things very different compared to the originals and I'm looking forward to see how it all plays out! Most people complain about this reboot and how it isn't as "kid friendly" as it "should have" been. Frankly, this movie is about teenagers doing TEENAGER things! If you couldn't tell from the previews (the type of action, the coloring, the dark tone of the film) then you need to research a bit more into a movie before having a child watch it. This was very much a set up for the soon to be (hopefully) next movie in the series so expect a lot of character development and not as much action (that is normally expected out of an action film) as there could have been. I still give this 5 stars and I can't wait for the next one!

    I picked up Saban's Power Rangers after seeing it on sale and a part of me knew what I was getting into. Coming from someone who has gone to the theater to see the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Movie when it initially debuted back in the day, I just knew the cheese was gonna be spread on Mighty thick. Enough of the fluff/. This movie is for the Power Ranger fan. I'm not a big fan, but I have to be totally honest. I really enjoyed this movie. I haven't sat down to watch all of the extras, because I actually find myself going back to watch the movie again. I like how the standard characters where developed. And I think I may have a mild crush of Rita. Plus I'm a huge fan of green. I'm not going to spoil it for any one of the 14 people that haven't seen this movie by now.( I was number 15, soooo, yea.) But I'm going to say, it's a good story and I look forward to the sequel, because Power Rangers. Really? It's gonna happen. Go pick it up or rent it. If you are curious. I enjoyed it. I hope you will too.

    As a Power Rangers fan for most of my life, I can say that this movie is pretty good, but has some major flaws. Pros: The Rangers themselves are perfectly cast and have great chemistry with each other. Another positive is the theme of teamwork. I really enjoyed how the new Megazord reinforced that idea by having each Ranger control a different part of it and them needing to all be in sync with each other for it to work. Cons: The writers decided that the characters should tell you about themselves instead of showing you. An example would be that Billy shows signs of being on the spectrum of autism. He alligns his colored pencils a particular way, he doesn't really get sarcasm, and he also doesn't like to be touched. Watching the movie, you understand that he is on the spectrum, but then he tells Jason within the first fifteen minutes of the movie. The biggest negative is the fact that this movie contains the worst product placement I've ever seen. The plot can pretty much be boiled down to "Save the Krispy Kreme. Save the world". Overall, the movie does its job because I would like to see a sequel with the Green Ranger and hopefully Lord Zedd as the villain.

    Power Rangers is the reboot of the cherished series of the same name, now following a group of outcasts in high school who discover the Power Rings that help transform them into the Power Rangers. With help from Alpha 5 and Zordon, these nobodies come together and band over their differences to help stop Rita Repulsa from destroying Earth. The movie is outstanding entertainment, with shout-outs to the cast of the Rangers, who fall into their roles naturally. The movie is a bit uneven, but for the first film in a saga, that's not so strange or unwarranted, especially one with such a massive mythology as Power Rangers. This is blockbuster entertainment at its finest, and while it is PG-13 with some intense material, it's still family friendly. The blu-ray, also, is top-notch (the 4K UHD looks great, but the difference isn't something worth the extra $10).

    I have never been a fan of Power Rangers. For me the robotic suitsfights among cardboard houses weren't my thing even as a kid. But man, this movie surprised me. Only because my husband was a real fan of my franchise we decided to buy this and give it a try. The box, artcover and included posters are all incredible, top points for presentation, and surprisingly the movie was great. Behind were the days of the model citizen heroes, perfect in every way fighting an obviously eveil for the sake of being evil witch. Here the characters are flawed, have to go great lengths to trust each others and have to earn "the power of friendship" unlike in the original tv show. Totally recommend. Besides, the villain totally chews the scenery with a few touches of horror movie scenes.

    As a kid of the 90s I was more than pumped to see this was being modernized... unfortunately with franchises where they expect to do 2, 3... or 6... films... they will often draw out the first film as a long winded origin story, which is the case here. The first 75% of the movie was them becoming power rangers... then the very very very end they finally become power rangers and it gets epic... I wish they hadnt drawn out that process as long as they did as there was no guarantee of a second movie (which will likely be amazing because we wont have to sit though an hour and a half of origin to get to actual action). but all in all it delivered and is worth seeing, fingers crossed for a second one and of course the throw backs and nostalgia of this movie made it all the more worth while.

    Has a lot of heart, but is light on action.

    Power Rangers is a great film, or at least greater than I thought a Power Rangers film would be. This adaptation definitely takes a more mature approach to the property, focusing on the five high school students' struggles to figure out where they fit in. I really enjoyed this aspect of the movie as I felt it was well done, but they probably spent a little too much time on this. After all, this is based on a series all about kids fighting monsters using martial arts and robots while dressed in brightly colored, animal-themed suits. Luckily, when the action does start it's really fun. Definitely recommend this film. As for the blu-ray, it was good. No complaints here. Great quality resolution and sound, and some extra featurettes to boot.

    Not a Bad Adaptation

    I watched the Power Rangers TV series back in the day, and this film wasn't a bad adaptation of that franchise. I wasn't blown away by it--perhaps because the teenage angst among the main characters became a bit annoying during the course of the film. Overall, though, most of the changes from the TV series were for the better and definitely helped the movie tell its story within the time allotted. If you're a fan of Power Rangers, this is a decent film to see, and the post credits scene is a nice teaser for a possible sequel. As for the blu-ray itself, the digital copy includes an iTunes file. If you're looking to expand your Apple movie library, this blu-ray will work for you!
