The plot: Rita and Zedd release another SealedEvilInACan, a ShapeShifting glob known as Ivan Ooze, with the hope he will become a new minion. Unfortunately, he proves that there is a very good reason he was sealed away. He easily infiltrates the Rangers' Command Center and destroys their powers, [[MentorOccupationalHazard leaving Zordon on the brink of death]]. He then [[EvilIsNotAToy traps Zedd and Rita in a tiny snowglobe]] and sets out to rebuild monstrous creatures that he began years ago. The Rangers depart for the planet Phaedos to find "The Great Power" to re-energize themselves and return to stop Ooze.

** The opening text scroll mentions that Zordon recruited ''six'' teens, which would imply that unlike the show Tommy was always part of team but that might been done for simplicity's sake.

** While fighting the Tengu warriors on the planet Phaedon, one of the crow-like creatures grabs Kimberly by the shoulders and flies off with her. Unable to escape from it's grasp, Kimberly shouts for her teammates to aid her.
** When a dinosaur skeleton (resembling a styracosaurus but with big, sharp teeth) cornered her and Tommy needed to distract the creature for her to escape. This one is justified due to being BroughtDownToNormal (Kim is a natural gymnast, not a martial artist) and even Tommy had trouble with the skeleton.

* DarkerAndEdgier: This movie is significantly more serious then its parent series. They mention several times the possibility that people could die, including Zordon and the group of brainwashed parents. Kids are also seen at a rave of some sort (including Bulk and Skull), smearing themselves with Ivan's Ooze and implying it to be some sort of delinquent party. There is even a news broadcast reporting on the destruction being caused by Ooze's monsters.

* TheDayTheMusicLied: As TheTeam morphs for the first time in the film, we are treated to a pumped-up version of the [[ThemeMusicPowerUp theme song]] and obligatory [[AssKickingPose posing]], after which it is revealed that the bad guys have ''fled the scene'' during all the buildup. Even the post-reveal ''guitar riff'' sounds disappointed.

* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:Zordon. Near the end of the film, while Ivan Ooze causes damage on the Earth and the Power Rangers are returning with their newfound powers, Zordon tells Alpha "Keep trying..." before breathing his last on the news anchorwoman's words, "Where are the Power Rangers?" When they return to the ruined Command Center after destroying Ooze, they hear from Alpha that they are too late, and they see Zordon's pale body lying on the broken pillar. Fortunately, the rangers still possess the Great Power and the Command Center is restored by their WorldHealingWave, and he is brought BackFromTheDead, restored as an entity once more.]]
** Averted humorously with Zedd and Rita. When Ivan takes over Zedd and Rita's command center, Zedd tries to use his magic to disintegrate him, but it only tickles Ivan. Ivan then says, "My turn," and just as you expect them to be destroyed...they're instead hit by Ivan's ShrinkRay, reduced to figurines in a snowglobe that sticks around for the majority of the film. [[spoiler: When Ivan dies, their size is restored.]]

* KillEnemiesToOpen: The rangers encounter a large stone door that blocks them from reaching the "great power" stashed in the monolith on the planet Phaedon. On the door are four life-sized carvings of warriors that [[RockMonster come to life]] to fight the rangers. It's only after the stone warriors have been dissolved, disintegrated, or crushed in combat that the door finally opens.

* DamselInDistress: Kimberly twice. The first time was when a dinosaur (resembling a styracosaurus) skeleton cornered her and Tommy came in.
