‘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.

Just watched this with the commentary from Dean Israelite and writer John Gatins. Very interesting commentary.

A couple Jimberly related notes from it were that the scene with Jason and Kim talking about running away together was one of the first written and used when testing actors for the roles because they wanted to get the chemistry right.

Also on the cut kiss scene they reiterated it was merely so it would make the scene more about Kimberly and not about Jason. Nothing more. In fact Dean mentioned that he was glad it was cut cause it added more to the Zord look scene they shared at the end and mentioned that it showed that their connection was going to culminate in something.
