okay but Power Rangers took the time to do something no other super hero film has done to date and allowed the members of the team to become friends. like it is so incredible that their bond is so detrimental to their success; it is so emphasized and valued and I cannot be anymore in love
Look, ok. It is hilarious character-driven action-packed fun times. all things I and most long time PR fans are 100% here for.
All in all, I adore my sons,
Zack [“My mom’s the BEST”] Taylor,
Billy [actual heart and soul of the film] Cranston and
Jason [will literally bitch slap idiots who mess with his team] Lee Scott,
just as much as I full on love my daughters
Kimberley [reformed queen bitch and baddest fucking ass] Hart and
Trini [jumps an actual fuckin chasm to avoid the chit chat (tbh same)] Kwan/Gomez/what-is-her-surname-here-I-do-not-know.
seriously, go watch this film. I just know it’s gonna be underrated as hell, and I cannot watch it fail in the box office because the critics have never watched a single Power Rangers episode in their lives.
It’s really hard to put into words just how good the Power Rangers movie was, on many different levels. It was good as a Power Rangers movie. It was good as a summer action movie. It was good as an origin story and as a character piece.
It had just the right amount of cheese and heart and product placement that was hilarious in it’s bold, unapologetic use.
It was one of the only American produced films to have an Asian lead, and the majority of the cast were fully developed characters of color. A nerdy, sensitive, Black autistic teenage boy was the heart of the film.
I went in expecting nostalgia and aome good fights and left genuinely emotionally connected to those characters and I seriously hope they make the sequel they left a stinger for.
