The Story started when Jason Lee Scott was involved in a criminal case that made him being in a House Arrest. He goes to School for detention every Saturday but he can't go anywhere except straight to home, and then in the Detention room he saw Billy Cranston being bullied by some jerky school boy who feels like he's too cool to be the bullied. Apparently as a Good hearted person and hates to see someone being quarreled, Jason warned the jerk to back off or else he'll do something miserable to him.

As a Thank you gift, Billy invited Jason to hang out at his place. They exchange assets and commodities and build up a friendship that leads to a deeper exploration of Billy's Project.

They explored the forbidden place of Mining mountain to calculate and prove Billy's research even against Jason wills he still wouldn't let Billy left alone in that dark mountain. a part of a mountain bombed by Billy, This draws attention to the other 3 Teenagers who was coincidently just by the mountains side at that time. 

This left a fragments of Mountain rocks scattered into the ground and revealed a huge crystal glass-like-mountain-wall. Out of curiosity, Zack Taylor, Used a tool to break the glass and later on found out 5 crystals with different colors. Red, Blue, Black, Yellow, and Pink.

5. Zack Taylor - The Black Ranger. The Asian the group has a type of Happy Go Lucky Personality. He has a sick mother and do everything just to sustained their living.

Actor: Ludi Lin


Let me start with Red Ranger, having Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger made the film more interesting to watch (for me) However at first I find it a little bit under rated for the fact that he looks short and unnoticeable but his acting later on made me realize that he can be the Leader and he can be Red Rangers whose going to lead the Power Rangers. It excites me too about Pink Rangers, I love girls with short hairs (Thats why I cut my hair short too ^_^) Going back, I think Naomi Scott is the best choice for it, They've added a spices in the Team and it made the film look fierce and strong :D

Even the three remaining rangers, The choosing of the Asian actor, Ludi Linalso gave a big impact in Power Rangers Team. Becky G who nailed Yellow Ranger's rebellious character and RJ Cyler who looks like a brainy cool teenage boy.



Kids from 90's or even adult who used to watched Power Rangers every time would probably gets excited somehow in the revival story of Power Rangers. The Effect would be much more realistic and artistic, The plot and characters would be more attracting and exciting, The story flows would be different and has a lot of twist. However for some people and for some reviews, Power Rangers 2017 came out with a disappointing outcome. Even I. I was a little bit disappointing, I didn't really enjoyed the entire film honestly.

I do not have problems with the Cinematography, Effects, Visuals, and Acting. but I've listed some of the factor why It came out a little bit Disappointing. but at the very first of the movie, I was really impressed and I was excited about what would happen however things changes on the lather part.

One of the reason and the Main Reason for me is that, I've been waiting for YEARS in when they are going to fight real enemy. I've been waiting in the entire film in where they are going to used their Powers and be armored up, My entire movie experience was just WAITING for that moment for them to be on the Morphin Time.

Lacks of Twist. Yep, The story is just like the Power Rangers TV series, Fights with the Mother Antagonist and then if it didn't worked by individually shooting, They will be turning into big android which would definitely kill the Giant. Boring. No hate but I've expected a lot in the Trailer!

Hands down for the Antagonist, The Giant one which made from gold made me cringe a little bit. hehe

I won't take this too long (so much hate lol), The Last one is the Lack of POWER RANGERS EXPERIENCE. (Same as the first one) The fighting scenes are short and doesn't reached my satisfaction (sorry!)

Power Rangers was inspired by Japanese TV series, Super Sentai. Unlike Super Sentai which has a lot of variety of Armor and characters (Assorted colors and identity which has a different skills and abilities) Power rangers focused on the developing coordination of 5 to 6 people with armor (Red,Blue,Black,Yellow,Pink and Green) in keeping the earth safe from outer planet villains.

Despite initial criticism that its action violence targeted child audiences, the franchise has continued, and as of 2017 the show consists of 24 television seasons of 20 different themed series and three theatrical films released in 1995, 1997 and 2017. In 2010, Haim Saban, creator of the series, regained ownership of the franchise after seven years under The Walt Disney Company.

Fun to watch. Even in some disappointing part, I would rate the Plot as 6 out of 10 while in the Story flows - 7 out of 10, Effects and Visuals is 9 out of 10, Characters 8.5 out of 10. Don't hate me! I watched the movie and its still worth to watch, Watch it with your kids and love ones :) Surely the kids would love it ^_^
