In a nutshell, the world is in danger and it's up to the Power Rangers to save it. I better not give away the ending.
Yes, it is cheesy. Yes, it is for kids.
But for fans of the show, the special effects are unbelievable. To go from a man in a bulky Zord suit to a CGI model for the NinjaMegaZord is unbelievable. The individual Zord fights are fun, although my favorite part of the movie is the armor. No spandex in this flick. The Rangers are all wearing shiny, pretty armor with cool helmets and new weapons. I found the fight scenes fun and exciting, and the soundtrack to this movie is decent. It contains Red Hot Chili Peppers, Van Halen, and some other random crap that isn't as good. But some of the songs are pretty good.
Dulcea is a nice touch. She's much more fun (imo) than Ninjor (from the show), and she looks far better in a bikini.
In short, if you are a fan, you've probably already seen this movie. If you aren't a fan, you probably won't be interested. On the other hand, if you like special effects and martial arts-style fighting, you might get a kick out of it. Just don't expect this to be a 5-star movie for you like it was for me if you aren't already a fan of the Power Rangers.
However, my beef with this product is not concerning the quality of the film--it is with the quality of this DVD release...which is VERY POOR.
The original VHS release was a thing of beauty. By all VHS standards, it was top notch, especially the box art.
This time, the box art is questionable: a stock image of a corona underlying the familiar film title...and, inexplicably, the villain from "TURBO: A Power Rangers Movie" is lurking in the background on the left side of the cover. WTH?
...But it gets worse: the film-to-video transfer of this release is appallingly low quality. The movie seriously looks like a bad pirated version that was shot with an old camcorder (minus the shaky hand). As such it is impossible to make out pretty much any details on ANYTHING throughout the entire movie, which, in this day and age of high-def, is VERY disappointing.
The video bit rate indicates about half (3.5 megabits per second) of the Hollywood standard (about 7-8 megabits per second); granted this would suggest that this release is a single-layered DVD...but somehow I think that whatever compression method was used made the picture quality even worse than a 3.5 mbps bitrate, because I've SEEN single-layered DVDs many a time before and I've NEVER seen a Hollywood-released single-layered DVD look THIS BAD before.
Twentieth Century Fox: FOR SHAME.
Now PLEASE fix the problem with a Blu-ray release, and this time don't SKIMP.
