The film opens in the Cenozoic Era with aliens coming to Earth. In New Age fashion, a crystal in the earth creates a life force. We shift to modern times and are introduced to three of the would-be Rangers in detention. We get to know Zack (Ludi Lin) and Trini (Becky G.) a little later. Perhaps the worst thing you can do is to share your innermost secret with a group of teen peers, but that is what they did in order to become a team and save the world vs. a Gold Golem.
The younger you are, the more likely you will enjoy the film. It is aimed at the teen. It had great graphics, although the Alpha-5 was as convincing as the alien in "Explorers." Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) was a little on the cartoonish side and I am not convinced of her alien name.
I was too old to have watched the MMPR so I can not make comparisons. I will say they simplified the title by dropping the Mighty Morphin' part, making it a bit more mature. Bryan Cranston was barely noticeable as Zordon.
