I wasn’t a fan of the original TV Series and was excited to check this out. When I think of Power Rangers, I think of teamwork, honor, saving the world from evil, and we can’t forget about kicking some major butt. This film had all of that which included our misfit teenagers trying to find their way but imagine, adding being a Power Ranger to that list! The one thing I liked about this film (or in this case, Blu-ray), was the scene when they first encounter Zordon (played by Bryan Cranston). The moment he said “You are Power Ranger”. It was like there was a sense of honor as if they were Knights of the Roundtable. I also like how they were outcasts. They weren’t popular. They weren’t friends. In fact they were complete opposites (who knew nothing about each other) brought together by these stones they had discovered. The stones, in hence, choosing their destiny as Power Rangers. I understand that it takes time to find oneself and to find your way but I felt that the characters suiting up (in their Power Ranger Suits) within the last 30 minutes of the film was disappointing and the only con I had with it. There was a definite superhero vibe when they faced the villain, Rita Repulsa (played by Elizabeth Banks). I liked each character’s background as it made them easy to relate to. This film also showed that no matter what, you can overcome your obstacles and to never give up. Catch Power Rangers out on Blu-ray, DVD, & Digital HD June 27th!
