Power Rangers (2017)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
I was very excited about this as I used to watch the original series back when I was a child though I was a little anxious as this could also go very wrong. However, I very much enjoyed this movie for the nostalgia and for just being awesome 😀 ! The style of the movie is very slick and fits well with what we remember of the “Rangers”. The suits looked great, the zords are different from the original series but the film had a complete rework so you can forgive it 🙂 . The main cast (Dacre Montgomery, Noami Scott, RJ Cyler, Ludi Lin and Becky G.) are fresh and very good at portraying the individual characters. I liked how each had a back-story that was relatable and understandable and made you actually root for the characters. My favourites were Zack’s back-story and the character of Billy 😀 . However each one was pretty good 🙂 . Elizabeth Banks’ portrayal of Rita Repulsa was awesome and she was a terrifyingly evil! Her costume and movements made her a weirdly believable villain to defeat. The look of Zordon and Alpha 5 were great even if it was different. I loved the beginning and hint to a series of movies by that teaser in the credits 😛 . It had some shocking and surprising moments that I was not prepared for 🙂 . Also this movie is surprisingly not cheesy even when playing that original song from the series as it just became nostalgic. The humour and the characters’ relationships were great too. Overall, a truly fabulous movie that is great for the fans of the original and for the younger generation (to be fair I think the entire family will enjoy this 🙂 ). I am looking forward to seeing another Power Ranger movie which I am sure is on the way 😛 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
