Thank God for fads. For all who don't know, fads are trends which usually leave as fast as they come.Now the Power Rangers, those are the epitome of fad-ness. It is evident in the way this franchise constantly attempts to change it's structure. First the Power Rangers, Power Rangers II (or whatever the hell it is), Power Rangers Turbo, etc. in an vain attempt to elongate there ever fleeting descent into nothingness.
By the time this movie was made, the Power Ranger fad was dangling by the thin hair of a balding man. Paul Schaffer type bald man. You can tell just by watching the movie.
The movie finds the Power Rangers battling the EVILLE Divatox (a very busty woman, who just so happens to be evil). But, they lose their powers. So they get new ones. But, they lose the blue ranger. So they get a new one.
Now, this is what I don't get, people. The blue ranger. He's played by a fucking 8 year old. But when he morphs, he's a well built 20 year old. "Use your powers well," says Zordon, the Power Ranger guru. Now, what I'm thinking is, "or else what?" If I was an 8 year old with a body like that I'd take off that god foresaken nylon suit and the oversized hockey helmet and spend the day shaggin' babes.
That my friend, is one of the worst plot twists in the history of plot twists.
The movie is just awful. Just like the TV show. Just like the special effects (it's a man in a latex suit people. LATEX). Just like the acting.I don't even see how kids like it.
