Obnoxiously loud and busy, it drips with goo and slime and contains an exhausting amount of action, funny voices and snot jokes.
The Rangers themselves are so painfully bland.
It's easy to see why the Rangers are popular. Even before they magically morph, the kids are sky-diving, roller-blading and living without parental authority. And they kick serious butt. But it's all done quite unhumorously.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is an utterly depersonalized thrill machine, yet it's exactly the film's go-go relentlessness that is likely to make boys and girls eat it up.
Some of the dialogue is difficult to hear over the din of the explosions and the hard-rock musical score. Fortunately, actions speak louder, and more eloquently, than words throughout Power Rangers: The Movie.
[Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie features] glaring continuity lapses, cringeworthy performances, silly monsters and laughable set-pieces.
The movie can't decide whether it wants to be winningly ramshackle, like the TV version, or more polished. The result is a mish-mash of slick special effects, clunky dialogue, haphazard continuity, and incongruous pilferings.
Considering the source material and the "talent" they had to work with, it's not that bad.
If your children are feeling nostalgic, then this colourful junk will while away a couple of very mindless hours.
This big-screen incarnation of the TV kids' adventure show that spawned a marketing empire is no better than it should be, but it's lively enough to fulfill its primary mission.
Lively, colorful, violent, stupid.
MMPR: The Movie will adequately keep its intended audience occupied for a couple of hours on a hot summer day. But parents shouldn't kid themselves that their children are also being exposed to wholesome, positive values.
The film is an honest yet generic rendition of the teenage superhero team with attitude. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie may have its moments that will momentarily make its audience believe in the power but the downgraded effects, overwhelmingly cheesy sequences and bore of a script ultimately screeches the adventure to an unimpressive halt. 3/5
It is cheesy as hell and has the stink of the 90's all over it. However, I still get a kick out of watching this movie once in a while. For me, it is a great nostalgic trip to my childhood. I used to love the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers when I was a kid, now I only watch it time to time for its camp value. It is better to watch this movie with buddies so you can have good time cracking jokes at the movies silliness. The action, although ridiculously over-the-top, is pretty decent and the soundtrack is actually really good. Whenever I hear "Higher Ground" by Red Hot Chili Peppers, I think of the movie's sky diving sequence. Watching this film is like watching a car wreck, its bad but for some reason you cannot look away. This movie maybe bad, but its has some entertainment value.
There was nothing cooler than being a little kid and watching this. Cheesy? Yes, but who gives a damn......it's the Power Rangers!
This movie really takes you back to the 90s, with all the one-liner jokes, the silly looking computer generated special effects, and of course, the power rangers. This movie is fun and exciting, but looks cheesy now.
