TURBO: A POWER RANGERS MOVIE
starstarstarstar
Infantile, pointless tedium aimed at kids, to whom the fact that it features the entire cast of TV's Power Rangers ZEO will presumably mean something. The evil Divatox (Hilary Shepard Turner) wants to wed the monster Maligore, so she needs alien wizard Lerigot to unlock the gateway to the ancient island of Muiranthias, where her intended is imprisoned in a volcano. The Power Rangers -- five squeaky-clean California teens with superpowers, for those who've been under some rock for the last several years -- are charged with saving Lerigot, a creature so ridiculous-looking that the Ewoks look sophisticated by comparison. Suspense? Forget it: There's never any as to whether or not the brown-nosing Rangers will defeat the campy Divatox. Kids, especially boys, are obviously meant to be excited about the Zords, which look like rather unspectacular, souped-up cars. The special effects are really cheap and you can barely tell the Power Rangers apart, despite the fact that they're color-coded. This is the kind of kids' movie that's pure torture for adults, even those who generally look kindly on juvenile fantasy/action pictures. The dialogue is atrocious, as are the wretched signature Morphin moves: Someone get these Rangers to a martial-arts school! leave a comment
