It is mean-spirited, badly cast, and the fight scenes are worse than the TV series.

Yeah, after watching I can only say that it is technically decent but not very good as a satire, parody of the franchise or even a Darker and Edgier parody of adaptations in general. In fact, they could have replaced the names and you would have had a largely serious sci-fi movie in its place. Even the Ranger costumes themselves are barely seen.

The only point when they came close was Zack's Hip Hop Kido exercise videos, which was worthy of a chuckle. And there was some talk of the implications of using Child Soldiers, but really did nothing for the story.

Jason David Frank saw it and wasn't a fan either.

Nevertheless, you must persist.

I'm gonna have to agree with Jason David Frank on this one. I saw what the fuss was all about on Youtube after they took down the original video on Vimeo. It has some pretty sweet special effects and the end twist with Rita was decent, if a bit of a Shocking Swerve. Otherwise, I'm not impressed with what I saw, especially because it was mean-spirited (the deaths of fan favorites like Tommy and Kimberley, in particular, were a slap in the face). That said, I would absolutely love to see Americans make mature toku series a la Garo in the near future. I think there are enough grown-up Americans now that could be nostalgic for a Rangers-esque show, so there some potential to be had.

Jason David Frank has actually been campaigning for a PG-13 Power Rangers for a long time, and that is what everyone is hoping for the new movie. He even said during the making of the original series he and many others would watch Super Sentai and wanted to emulate that more, which was often quite a bit more violent. So it's not just "Power Rangers for mature audiences" that he takes issue with, but that it throws away its kid friendly roots. Appealing to both is possible.

Nope. If he thought he was making Power Rangers "good for once" then he lost me here.

Bleedingcool has what seems to be concept art for two of the Zords. Get it while it's still online.

Interesting if real. Not sure what that Zord in the first picture is supposed to be.

I think it's a more vehicle-like design for the pterodactyl in the lower images.

The first picture in the upper-left corner made it look like it was made of Legos.

Concept art can go in a lot of directions. Label indicates the first one is a Red Ranger zord, and is probably intended to be part of a more vehicle-based motif. I don't mind the overall look of the Pterodactyl zord but the scale seems a little off, it wouldn't be much bigger than a modern fighter jet. The '95 Power Rangers movie made the Zords so small they didn't have quite the same majesty, except maybe the Falconzord.

‘Power Rangers': Potential Reimagined Character Details Revealed

That url makes it sound like Zordon is being made a villain. Not true, it just describes how Rita is described and how Zordon is described.

Wait, the staff's 'technology?' They do remember she's a witch right?

Zordon was described as a wizard yet still used technology.

Okay you got me there. And she did have a giant mecha after all.

The source is Umberto Gonzalez, meaning it's just speculation that will spread all over the internet because it has the word "rumor" attached to it.

Rita also had Finster mold a creature from clay, put it into a machine to create the full sized monster. Both were tech using wizards, Clarke's Third Law in full effect.

Heroic Hollywood brings us the report; however, sources on the information are unconfirmed, so take all of it with a couple grains of putty patroller salt.

The film features many plot points from the original series: Zordon and company imprison — or in this case detonate a black hole onto — Rita Repulsa; the would-be Rangers are named Jason, Billy, Kimberly, Zack and Trini; and power coins play a part. Also, according to the characters description, these teens definitely have attitude.

As mentioned some things are different: Zordon and Alpha 5 do not chose the Rangers but instead the power coins bond with them; the aforementioned black hole bomb actually sends Rita and Zordon forward in time 65 million years to present day; and no mention of Zords thus far.

The description also mentions the characters’ ages, which are appropriately around the 16 years old mark, and that Rita’s plans to, similarly to the first “Power Rangers” adventure, reform Goldar — although in this version she needs literal gold to do so.

It’s Morphin’ Time for the new “Power Rangers” on January 13, 2017.

...you can't have an Original Power Rangers movie without Tommy.

They do have medals for almost, and they're called silver!
