‘Power Rangers’ is surprisingly more about characters than action
I don’t want to oversell this, but the new “Power Rangers” movie is actually kind of good. It is by no means a masterpiece, but it is made with more care than was necessary and is surprisingly earnest.
The original “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” series, a re-purposing of the Japanese show “Super Sentai,” debuted in 1993. “Super Sentai” featured super-powered humans who would do battle with various monsters. Inevitably, these fight escalated to giant robots versus giant monsters.
“Power Rangers” re-framed this footage with a teen show in the mode of “Saved By the Bell.” The formula proved successful and is still going strong with new spin-offs every couple years.
