“Did I just hear you say we’re Power Rangers? Is this some kind of joke?”
No, darlin’. No joke. And a joke is what I was afraid of when I first heard about this movie. But Power Rangers is looking really good. Not only are they leaning in on the real life after-effects of becoming a superhero, Our Heroes are not instantly awesome. There are bumps along the road, which makes for a more compelling story. Plus, I’m digging their “high school newspaper” website, The Roar. I’m in. Synopsis!
SABAN’S POWER RANGERS follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
