Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie (1997)
The legendary Power Rangers must stop the evil space pirate Divatox from releasing the powerful Maligore from his volcanic imprisonment on the island of Muranthias, where only the kindly wizard Lerigot has the key to release him. The hope of victory lies in the Ranger's incredible new Turbo powers and powerful Turbo Zords.
Yawn. Poorly Filmed Snooze Fest.
i must have seen a different film!!
It is neither dumb nor smart enough to be fun, and spends way too much time with its boring human characters.
An old-fashioned movie made with new-fashioned finesse.
Holy hell, I am not even 15 minutes into the movie and virtually every scene has been hideously ugly to look at, from that nightmare-inducing hairy wizard puppet to the horrifying thing that is apparently Divatox's nephew that I can't even look at without turning away. the film starts with absolutely nothing Power Rangers related, taking us to a fantasy land where fantasy death knights riding horses wearing masks with horns are chasing a nightmare-inducing hairy wizard puppet in a sequence that goes on for what feels like an entire ten minutes and contributes literally nothing as everything was already explained in the prologue text scroll. while the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie was basically just rendered non-canon and they went and re-did the broad story less impressively in the series, this one apparently is supposed to be a prelude to the next series after Zeo, and according to the trivia was filmed alongside Zeo, which likely explains why Bulk, Skull, and Stone are still police officers despite having been fired/quit and become private investigators in Power Rangers Neo Geo Zeo, with a clearly spliced in line by Lieutenant Stone quickly saying they were re-hired. meanwhile the trivia also says the original cut was nearly three hours long and holy hell not even 20 minutes in, virtually nothing has happened and it definitely feels like a three hour movie on its own.
This is the first (and likely the only time I'll ever give a 1 on IMDb) this movie is horrendous. I dressed up as a Power Ranger for Halloween for two years growing up. I had watched at least 8 or 9 different seasons of Power Rangers growing up. You can't rightfully criticize something unless you know something about the source material.This movie sucked. Period. The rangers themselves JDF (Jason David Frank) is badass, Adam AKA Johnny Yong Bosch was okay. The little kid (Justin) was annoying and the two girls have no personality whatsoever and are not even worth mentioning.60% of the movie consisted of Jason David Frank and the others floating aimlessly on a ship with no sense of immersion or action taking place.Fun fact. Due to how awful this movie was, the Power Rangers license was almost canned in North America and cancelled until ultimately the follow up season, Power Rangers In Space, saved the franchise from extinction.That's how awful this movie is. It almost silenced Power Rangers for good. An 8-year-old fanboy of the series could of written and produced better junk than this.Easily one of the worst movies ever made and I'm sure it'll continue to be labeled as that 15 years from now.
Power Rangers Turbo: The Television Series is better than Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie! Yes, it should be the other way around, movies are meant to be better than TV, but they got it very wrong here!The series was filled with Elgar the comical mutant dropping jokes all the time but I can't even remember if Elgar is even in the movie! Adding to this, I don't like that short stupid looking creature that appears in this film. About the only pleasing part of the film was interesting footage of the submarine and that just comes from my liking of submarines.The first Power Rangers movie was a lot better than this and it is not too hard to understand why Turbo was the last PR movie!
The Power Rangers must journey towards an island that houses the evil Malagore, in order to stop Divatox from unleashing the creature of pure destruction...In my opinion the film was fine but what followed was the end of the entire series in my opinion...The film had a good cast, brining back characters like Jason and Kimberly...But what really annoyed me was the addition of Justin the kid Ranger!!!This wasn't like the previous movie, with new versions of armoury..it was just a very long episode...The end fight scene was satisfactory but after waiting throughout the whole film for an amazing fight scene it is kind of disappointing to only witness 3-4 minutes worth of action....It was entertaining nonetheless...
