Well, lo and behold some secret fan of the whole Power Rangers shebang went and financed his own version of a Rangers reboot. As is the demand of the marketplace these days for more dark and edgy material, Joseph Kahn's film (a presentation by Adi Shankar) casts a pall of doom over the entire affair. Heck, it even gives the grown up superheroes more than a few F-bombs to sling healthily about ... so consider yourselves warned. The language is definitely NSFW.
Still, there's a winning charm to the whole encounter. It's gritty. It's reasonably action-packed. It even has a fair sense of black humor what with the blood splatter and maybe even a few in-jokes for those who followed the Rangers much closer than I. As I said, I didn't, but I still caught a few zingers directed out toward the audience and who they worshiped as heroes.
