Who knew that 90's nostalgia would get the best of me?! Damn those amazing trailer editors! Whatevs, I'm glad it did because this is one reboot, I can get behind! Dean Israelite's Power Rangers gives all the right kinds of feels and with this new class of Power Rangers, I believe we're in good hands! Despite the natural corniness that comes with the film, it's the personal and poignant stories of each teen beyond their ranger status that makes the film such a rewarding viewing experience.
One of the truly bittersweet aspects of the new Power Rangers its lopsided pacing. The film invested so much time in building the foundation of each teen's origin story that by the time they were able to fully active their Power Rangers' power, the steam runs out quickly. Regardless of the cons, this reboot is a worthwhile franchise that has much to offer even if you didn't grow up with them.
