All these bad reviews.... seriously though, how can you take Power Rangers so seriously? The beauty of the series is partly because it didn't take themselves seriously and was able to create such ridiculous storylines for each episode. This film does exactly that but with better special effects.
After a brief and at least somewhat atmospheric prologue, "Power Rangers" opens with a gag about a high school boy accidentally servicing a cow, and this molasses-paced "Power Rangers" reboot never really recovers from there. I can see the argument for remaking this property for a post-"Chronicle" era, but I'm not sure if Krispy Kreme product placement or Elizabeth Banks scenery-chewing were the way to go about it.
Among some great parts, like the intro scene, the following crash and early Rita scenes, there's some terrible aspects, like the worst CGI in a film of this budget in the last 10 years. More talkin' than morphin', there's barely any action until it plays every card it has in the last 20 minutes, where they finally fight a real threat. Should've left Billy dead, that would've been bold.
