Go Go Power Rangers. More like No No Power Rangers.
Original content seems to be a thing of the past for filmmakers today. Dredging up past concepts has become a trend within the cinematic world.
Rather than leaving the Power Rangers in their ever so glorious past, instead the story has been warped and conveniently adapted upon breaching the surface for a second round.
The acting is just as you’d expect from a film that drenches itself in teenage adolescence; awful. The cast seem to have a consistent default setting of mild frustration throughout the film, a characteristic that is undeterred regardless of circumstance.
If the acting wasn’t enough to make you nauseous, than the astonishingly shocking use of CGI certainly will. With a film as full of stunt orientated action, one would have thought that a little more effort could have been injected into the post-production aspect of the special effects. But, alas, the audience is left contemplating why the creators even bothered to remove the green screen, for the painful lack of realism that the final cut displays.
What is more, is the very fact that the vast majority of the film doesn’t even show the Power Rangers as, well, Power Rangers, until the last twenty minutes of the film; a climax that is of no satisfaction after enduring a storyline lacking both substance and originality.
