Power Rangers

TV-to-movie nostalgia hits '90s kids with this big budget reboot of the loooong-running Saban series that basically steals all its special effects from old Japanese TV shows. In it, some high school kids are infused with unique superpowers, get color-coordinated outfits and fight giant space aliens (led by Elizabeth Banks). Unfortunately, the film spends an awful lot of time dealing with angsty teenage melodrama. It's like everybody involved was too embarrassed to get out and, you know, fight those giant space aliens. When the action finally does arrive, it's fun and flashy--even though it's swamped in that "realistic" grimdark monochrome of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Seriously, Hollywood, make with the color again! 124 minutes PG-13.
