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

5.0 out of 5 stars Power Rangers Rule!!!!! May 31 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is the best Power Rangers moview ever. I can understand why the person who reviewed this gave it such a review, though. This movie is intended for fans of the show, which, by his lack of Power Ranger info, he is not. If he was, he'd know why Jason and Kim aren't Rangers.

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD Power Rangers May 29 2012
By Fred
Format:DVD
Pour les jeunes enfants c'est parfait, les créatures sont peu terrifiantes, mais il y a juste 1 scène d'action dans tout le film avec les Power Rangers en costume.

4.0 out of 5 stars Turbo Power Rangers March 13 2012
Format:DVD
I bought this dvd for my 4 yr old grandson, to watch at my house. It has become his favorite dvd. It has now moved to his house.... need I say more. It is typical Power Rangers, very hokey but lots of fun for a 4 - 6 yr old.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hands Down - Worst Movie Ever March 24 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this movie when I was about eight and even then I hated it.
Years later this is still the most atrociously stupid and point-
less movie I've ever seen.There's nothing remotely cool or original about it - it's just garbage full of cheesy
special effects,bad acting,and lame fake "rock" music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shift Into Turbo Sept. 6 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The Power Rangers 1st movie was extremely popular. So were the first four seasons of the show, but this movie was unfortunately the beginning of the end for the show's popularity. The only thing I ever saw wrong with the Turbo Rangers was Justin. The idea of having an eleven year old for a ranger was just to off. Divatox was actually a good character to add. She was annoying and pushy just like Rita. The plot of this movie was good, but sadly short. What makes this movie really good is that unlike the first movie which had nothing to do with the series this movie actually blends in with the show. However in the end it didn't matter because after the show continued once the movie came out the show went down hill. The show amazingly still went on spanning off six more whole seasons and are now releasing a seventh, but the overall popularity of the show is nothing compared to what it used to be. Amazingly enough kids still watch the show. So now your probably thinking sense this movie was the start of the show's downfall it must suck. Wrong! The main reason why the movie failed is because many people in my generation were growing out of the show, in other words started saying, "The show is for kids." However hardcore fans like myself have stuck with the show till this day. I'm sure if the creators of the show decide or should I say dare bring out a third movie it'll probably do awful at the box office like this movie and I'll admit it's kind of hard for some people to stick with the show seeing how the show gets a whole new cast every year, but if you just like the overall theme of the show (Kids or in some cases young adults saving the world) then I say you'll like this movie. If like me you bought the video buy the DVD because I'm sure it's bound to wear out eventually.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wretched... Sept. 24 2002
Format:VHS Tape
As a kid, I was rather fond of the Power Rangers, but this movie fails to generate the same fondness I had for it. It's mostly dull and uneventful, moving at a pace that would make a snail bored. The whole movie is ridiculous and has no shred of plot, direction, or action. It simply exists on the screen, loud, boistrous, and meaningless. I hated this movie to the extent that I started examining the hairs in my leg. Boring boring boring.

3.0 out of 5 stars Turbo: A Power Rangers Dud June 8 2002
Format:VHS Tape
For what it's worth, this movie can be enjoyable. Much like the TV series, you have to take this movie with a grain of salt. Don't expect to much and you won't be disappointed.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars go,go,power rangers!! March 17 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I love Power Rangers,hence I'm writing a review.Okay,so an ewokish wizard named Lerigoht is needed for Divatox's plan to marry the evil,scary Maligore.But the Rangers will stop her,except for Rocky.Rocky got his back injured in a fight,and is no longer the blue ranger,but 12 year old Justin takes his place.Divatox kidnapps former pink ranger Kimberly and Gold ranger Jason as part of a sacrifice,and turns them evil. To stop Maligore,the zeo power rangers upgrade to turbo rangers.This movie rocks,but not as good as MMPR:TM.
