Product Description

Amazon.ca

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 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.

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.

Guess I did spill it! Well, I'm writing this review as 'Anonymous'...so no one will know the difference. Anyway, I'm a 17-year-old girl and actually like the Power Rangers. Sad, I know. But I like the show mostly because I see guys on it (certain Power Rangers) whom I think are cute. So I can't help it but watch the show! Anyway, I think TURBO: A POWER RANGERS MOVIE is better than the first film, MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS: THE MOVIE. I don't know why I liked the second one better...I guess I just do (I've seen both, by the way). It's got more action and more Martial Arts moves (a lot are pretty cheesy, of course...but most people these days like watching cheesy stuff anyway!). The plot is better, too. Also, two of the original Power Rangers (Kimberly and Jason) come back in this movie, too. And one of the best things about this movie is that not all of the Power Rangers are young adults or teenagers...one of them's a kid. He's the new Blue Ranger, Justin. In TURBO, the Rangers are trying to help Larigold, get new Zords - the Turbo Zords - and try to defeat Divatrockz, the new villian who is using Larigold's powers (Larigold is a creature from another planet) to bring back this monster - I forget his name - who she will marry and they will comebind their powers to become the most powerful villians in the universe and have the power to destroy and take over the universe. It's really cool and if you're a Power Rangers fan, then this movie is definitely for you!

This movie is one episode - one episode in a long saga of action and insanity that is the Power Rangers Universe. Quite honestly, many people just don't understand it, but it dosen't matter. Power Rangers is the most watched kids' show of ALL TIME, beating Pokemon, Thundercats, Voltron, Sesame Street, and whatever else you can think of, with a toy series that has sold in excess of 5.5 BILLION dollars worldwide, and is thus the #1 action figure of the DECADE, beating Pokemon, Marvel Comics, and Star Wars (all of which are superb franchises - Pokemon is hilarious, and Marvel and Star Wars are just legendary giants in the business). You don't honestly think that all of these fans are KIDS, DO YOU? Not possible. Just Not Possible.
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.
