The Krispy Kreme onslaught. The bad guy is addicted to them, the fate of the world rests upon them. The real question is: how will you keep Rita Rafjawfljaklsjf away from her Krispy Kreme donuts? I mean honestly, all the characters in the movie lack any sort of flavor, almost like a Krispy Kreme donut without its satisfying thick glaze of Krispy Kreme Icing. Watch as the film sugar coats child pornography, bestiality, underage drinking, and pedophilia as easily as a Krispy Kreme donut. Watch as a character who previously held his breath for 5 minutes drowns faster than a delicious Krispy Kreme donut is dipped into our new and improved Krispy Kreme coffee. Watch as a character who recently expired, unlike a Krispy Kreme, is some how brought back to life by a briefly mentioned plot device as easily as putting a Krispy Kreme donut into a microwave. Watch as the plot is hurried along in the fourth Krispy quarter Kreme of the movie towards its Krispy Kreme Delicious ending. Watch your childhood show be ground up and pressed like Krispy Kreme dough into toys to be sold like Krispy Kremes to a new generation. And unlike Krispy Kremes, though this movie cost me ten dollars to see it, I now would have paid twenty to not see it. This movie review was written with the same number of Krispy Kreme references as were in the movie.
- 90s kids avoid!by 24 March 2017on

This reboot is by far one of the worst I have seen. I grew up in the 90s and my love for power Rangers was dear. If you are an original fan please DO NOT watch. The film was sexualized and at times a little disturbing. This remake is for a whole new generation. If this is what we are producing for the next generation then this is unsettling. The audience In the movie seemed to enjoy this movie but as an original fan I had to walk out half way. The actors performed more on a chessy, no acting skills level. The villain was a tormented individual with no talent. Zordon was completely different, more of an aggressive angry frustrated personality. That alone made me walk out, original Zordon was patient, wise, and kind. I believe we got 15 minutes of fighting if that in this 2 hour movie. Everything that was once positive about the series, was completely missing in the movie. Sad to say, the new Power Rangers movie was a disaster.

This movie probably had even worse cgi than batman vs superman. The story was really pointless and made no sense, no one knew any of these actors they didn't know what they were even doing and don't even know how to act I really did not enjoy this movie at all really bad compared to the awesome power rangers TV shows back than they should not make a sequel to this film.

just got back from seeing POWER RANGERS MOVIE with kids. I guess I should have been suspicious that the theater was virtually empty on the first day of Spring Back as to how bad this film is. people are steering clear of this trash. it's not that the film was awful due to production standards... the movie was bad due to the negative messages it sent. this is a kids' movie mind you... where to even start? 1) within the first 7 minutes, it is discussed that one boy milked a "cow", not realizing it was a "single-udder bull" - explain that to your kids. 2) one of the "hero" characters steals two vehicles in the film, leads police on high-speed chases, and destroys both vehicles (NOT while he is trying to save lives... he is literally running from the law because he committed crimes). 3) the same character (a hero) mentioned in #2 is sentenced to an electronic tether house- arrest. he tricks an autistic boy to hotwire the electronic tether so he can go wherever he wants. 4) in stealing one of the vehicles, the 5 main kid characters attempt to beat a speeding train - NEVER NEVER EVER SHOW THIS IN A KIDS' MOVIE!!! NEVER!!! and of course, they fail - all dying - then miraculously are alive the next day. 5) all five main kid "hero" characters (16 / 17 years old) enjoy beers while having a campfire - AFTER they have been informed that they will be the ones to save the planet because of their "pure" hearts. 6) the film LITERALLY tells us "Being different is good, being 'normal' is bad"... they don't say "it's okay to be different", they say the first line I typed. literally. this is the dialog. well, since EVERYONE is different, and we all know that... then what is "normal"? is normal obeying laws? is normal listening to your parents? according to the film, being "normal" (which they tell us is bad) is having a job, obeying the law, worrying about your own safety, and not caring about anybody else. 7) EVERY swear word imaginable is used in this film except the F-bomb. 8) finally - TWO other messages are LITERALLY spoken in the film. #1 is - "Forget about all the bad things you have done in your life and just move on". um... wait... don't you have to make amends for those bad things? just move on? like cutting off your tether? taking advantage of a gifted autistic person? stealing vehicles? #2 is - "You five kids have the purest hearts on Earth, that is why the power has chosen you"... again... wait... so, the kids that have the WORST track record of kids on the ENTIRE PLANET have the "purest hearts"? so... the rest of the population is all bad or "normal" as they tell us? parents: DO NOT waste your time or money taking your kids to see this monstrous garbage film. you'll have too much explaining to do when it's done. they've taken a children's show and have perverted it to send all the worst messages.

Terrible script & story. Knew it from the trailers, but still had the balls to watch it... Came with minimal expectations but was STILL DISAPPOINTED. This is soo cringy in an awful way. It is not that cringy and corny type that'll make you laugh because of how awful it is. It is just plain sad, awful, and painful to watch. THIS IS THE ONLY SECOND TIME WE WALKED OUT OF THE CINEMA IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOVIE. (FYI, FIRST TIME WAS INSURGENT 2015)
- A Mess that Could have been Nostalgic Fun,by 15 April 2017on
37 out of 41 people found the following review useful:
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
- This is not a good movie (SPOILERS)by 29 March 2017on
38 out of 43 people found the following review useful:
This movie is boring, poorly written, and stupid. It's not stupid in a fun way, either.
I went into this movie with expectations that I would have for a Transformers movie; I hoped for explosions, fun action scenes, and cool CGI. Guess what this movie had? NONE OF THAT. Because it was so boring, I was forced to sit through boring scenes of people talking about boring back stories.
This movie suffered from the same problems that Superman v Batman and Suicide Squad suffered from: they tried so hard to fit so much stuff in, that the pacing is terrible and nothing feels like it goes together. The whole movie is very forgettable except one scene... (Spoilers, kinda)
The opening scene, when the Red Ranger (who's character name I can't remember and can't be bothered to go back and look) gets into a car chase with the police after pulling a prank at the high school. The cinematography and camera-work is fantastic and really got my hopes very high for the rest of the movie. It's reminiscent of the tank scene from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It's a little difficult to pay attention to everything that's going on, but at least it looks cool and keeps you engaged, UNLIKE THE REST OF THE MOVIE.
Overall, I would say that no matter what reviews people read, they're going to see it no matter what. Also, (spoilers again) when they finally morph into the animal robots (I never watched the show much, so maybe I just don't get it) they play the original theme song from the show for no reason other than to force nostalgia.
At least the original show, from what I did see, was campy and fun. This movie can't decide if it wants to be serious or funny (just like Suicide Squad). Come to think of it, this movie has a lot of similarities to Suicide Squad, except with Suicide Squad, it had more than THREE ACTION SCENES IN THE WHOLE MOVIE.
This is a bad movie. Go see it.
- Mighty Morphin with SPOILERS at the end.by 21 April 2017on

TL;DR - Slow, boring, not entertaining, Fant4stic was better.
I followed this movie around the time it was first announced and even partook in the boards and seeing all the news and leaks about the movie. I was not too fond of certain things about this movie especially certain casting as I felt it wouldn't fit. I honestly really wanted to enjoy this movie but when the trailer hit I had a bad feeling and should have stuck to it.
My friend dragged me to go watch it with him and I hated almost every minute. After reading mixed reviews the ones that resonated with me are the ones that shared my same opinions.
The movie lacked good comedy, needed to improve on action. It dragged and dragged with these poorly acted characters and mundane character development for our protagonists. The only fun character was Rita. Elizabeth Banks did a great job making that character hers and making her feel more menacing than she was in the show. I've only ever liked her in one other franchise and that was The Hunger Games so to be honest I am surprised I liked Rita as much.
--- ***SPOILERS BELOW***---
The movie started off good with the ending of a battle scene which introduced our antagonist and the seriousness of a threat our heroes will encounter down the road. Rita literally kills the previous Ranger team and is the ever so loved Green Ranger which was teased and theorized throughout set photo leaks. This scene and the final Battle where Rita gets B-chSlapped to the moon was the only entertaining thing in this whole movie. Everything in between was utterly boring. You will seriously have a more fun time watching the Ghostbusters Remake or the Fant4stic reboot.
- Overall Bad Movieby 9 April 2017on
37 out of 44 people found the following review useful:
I can see where they tried to make it similar, but different. However, I have not seen a movie this bad since the 3rd Spiderman Movie and Avatar The Last Air Bender live action that no one speaks of. Now I can't say its the worst cause I have seen worse, but its not worth the time to even watch it let alone pay to see in any theater.
If you want something that is power rangers and okay, watch the original. The only things honestly good about the movie were their progressive inclusion of a LGBT and a young man on the Autistic spectrum. Thing is having these things does not make a movie good and though they are trying to keep their characters and ideas up today with changing culture. The movie concept was outdated to say the least and has been way overdone not just by every single series of the power rangers, but also every hero/action movie made since the 1990s.
Stay at home, don't waist your money. Go watch Beauty and the Beast if anything.
- Power Rangers Re-Boot stole ideas from The Forgotten Ranger, Corporate Redby 23 March 2017on
42 out of 54 people found the following review useful:
There are few spoilers, but also keep in mind this movie also plagiarized off another project. This movie is not only awful, but many across the world are now realizing this movie plagiarized off a online global hit short story, known as Corporate Red, The Forgotten Ranger. Created by Terrell Quentin Rogers during his teen years, for the three straight years the short story has been an online hit and caught huge interest from both Power Ranger and even Marvel fans. A producer from Lionsgate Films met with Terrell Quentin Rogers in interest of his script. During his speech last night at a screening for PR-reboot Haim Saban said Lionsgate Films presented him with a separate story. Saban then says that same story ended up not being used for the film, and that it was a separate story and with some knowing the insider of the story laughing in the audience. However its no longer a laughing matter as people are now waking up and realizing that both Lionsgate Films and Haim Saban did steal ideas from TQR's online global hit short story. Several ideas from Corporate Red are noticeable in the PR-reboot. Red Ranger being shorter than some of the rangers. Corporate Red is shorter than four ranger (Green, Lavender, White and Gold). Rita is equivalent of Corporate Green. Both Red and Blue are a combination of Corporate Red. Pink Ranger re-boot mean persona plagiarized off Corporate Pink. Yellow Ranger being lesbian equivalent to a script TQR shared with multiple producers including a Lionsgate producer of Green and Lavender being lesbian. If you hate seeing people's ideas stolen, do not see this movie.
