Turbo: a Power Rangers Movie [Import]
If you're five to eight years old, get with some of your buddies, eat two bowls of Fruity Pebbles, scarf three packets of Pop Rocks, and snap your synapses into Power-Ranger Elysium with Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie. If you're a parent and you don't know a Zord from a Zordon, get ready for one and a half hours (yep, one and a half hours) of enough mass marketing and mindless mayhem to destroy any resistance to the overt "buy this toy" messages contained therein. The evil Divatox, a busty space "piratess," kidnaps two former Power Rangers and it's up to the new Rangers to save their friends from becoming human sacrifices to an evil monster. The Rangers' leader, Zordon (who thinks up these names?), gives the new crew added "turbo" powers and presents them with their new Zords--turbo-powered cars. What's never explained is why there are former Power Rangers: do they get drummed out for not morphing (or morphing too much), or do the Rangers maintain the same policy as the once-famous Latino pop band, Menudo (replacing members once they get too old). There's an inordinate amount of the fake kung-fu kicking that made the TV show popular, and the villains are grotesque; but they're just shrieking punching bags. But the thought that Turbo is basically "the next generation" of Power Rangers is enough send chills up any parent's back. That's why kids love them so. --Keith Simanton

The special effects for this sequel do not come close to those of the first movie. The Turbo Megazord kind of looks like a few rejects from the junkyard got together and walked out. And the scenes of the lava pit in Maligore's will remind you of one of those bad B-grade TV Sci-Fi series that were prevalent during the 60s and 70s.
One of the bright spots of this movie is Divitox, a new evil villaness played deliciously over-the-top by Hilary Turner. Never taking herself too seriously, Ms. Turner camps up Divitox just enough to make us almost want to route for her to win. Hands down, Divitox is the best villaness (or villan for that matter) to hit Angel Grove in years.
Fans of the TV series will appreciate the fact that this movie picks up roughly where the series ended the season, and the series picks up roughly where the movie ends. This is contrary to the first movie which had nothing to do with the TV series except for the fact that it was about the Power Rangers.
As I stated earlier, don't expect much and you will be able to enjoy this movie. It can be a lot of fun, and all the action in Maligore's cave at the end of the movie is well worth the pain it takes to get there.

Great show full of cute guys and lots of action.Read more ›
Power Rangers is great. It's got everything. Don't take my word for it. Go. Suspend Disbelief. Dispel Preconcieved Notions. Don't be concerned with foam rubber and spandex - look at the storyline. See the show. Watch the movies. Judge for Yourself. And May The Power Protect You All.
