This Weekend at the Box Office: Power Rangers

 

Words cannot explain how long I have waited for this movie to come out! Growing up I loved the Power Rangers so you can only imagine how excited I was when I heard they were making a more “adult version” of the group.
Well, let me tell you this, I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! This movie lived up to everything I had hoped it would be. Action, comedy, and villains that couldn’t stand a chance against the Power Rangers.
If you didn’t really care for them growing up then you may not be as into it as someone that had only hoped to be the good Green Ranger Tommy or Trini, the Yellow Ranger!
The movie starts off in a world far before our time, with a battle that will then resume in the present day in the small town of Angel Grove. There, 5 strangers will later become the ultimate fighting group of teens.
Visually, this movie was spectacular, there were scenes so beautifully directed, I couldn’t believe what I was watching! The emotions of the characters were so natural, you couldn’t help but feel like you were right along with them on this journey. It really made me (and the rest of the theater) feel some kind of nostalgic feelings! Especially when you hear that oh so loved chant, GO GO POWER RANGERS! Not to mention the incredible Elizabeth Banks and how she transformed Rita Repulsa from some silly witch puppeteer to this all out devil in the flesh villain!
AHHHH I’m getting excited all over again!
However, because this version is “more adult” than the show or really any family movies out, I would not recommend taking younger kids. I would say it would be ok for your older ones like 15 and up. There is quite a bit of cussing, teen drinking and they tip toe around sex. I mean they are teens after all! If you are wanting to take your kids to see it, I would say see it first and then decide if you think it is ok. Trust me you will want to see it again lol
Overall I give this movie a 10/10 for so many reasons! Mostly because this is my childhood on the big screen and it is entertaining at my current age! This movie is a must see!
