Power Rangers Review: Morphing Into An Electric Superhero Blockbuster!
Power Rangers centers on five teenagers: Jason(Dacre Montgomery), Kimberly (Naomi Scott), Billy (RJ Tyler), Zack (Ludi Lin) and Trini (Becky G). One night these strangers stumble across five mysterious coins within the rocks of a quarry; and after touching the coins, each of the teenagers gains superhuman abilities . The five return to quarry to find an ancient alien ship within the caves. There the group meets Alpha 5 (Bill Hader) and Zordon (Bryan Cranston) who tell them that they are the new Power Rangers. Coming to terms to this realization the five decide to stay to become the Power Rangers so they can stop the evil Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) from taking the Zeo Crystal and destroying Earth.
Power Rangers was certainly a surprise. Although it uses elements and concepts seen in previous superhero movies, the movie was able to use these aspects like story and characters in a way that was both different-not to mention effective. Along with its stellar direction was a tone that made this film just an enjoyable blockbuster to watch in theaters. It is because of these reasons that Power Rangers is not just worthy to be part of the superhero genre, but it also lives up to the name Power Rangers.
