    Great review! I just reviewed this myself and agree with pretty much everything you say. I was blown away with how well this worked as a whole!

      Especially considering it had everything going against it. Obscure property. No (on-camera) stars. No recognition. Coming into the sophomore phse of the MCU. But wow… what an underdog.

      Will be checking out your Review soon!

    […] First of all, dark & gritty simply doesn’t work with The Power Rangers in all their primary color glory. The show had many elements of b-movie style science fiction, but was ultimately a wholesome series aimed at children with majority of the episodes dealing with a moral message that the high-school characters had to deal with by the end. The monsters and fantastical elements were used as a metaphor for issues such as self-esteem, family conflicts, relationships or other everyday aspects of a young adult’s life.

Instead of an all out dramatic action adventure, the film can attempt to have more of a light hearted and tongue in cheek attitude, almost mocking the genre itself, similar to the tone of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.
