We donít get to see the Power Rangers actually as the Power Rangers wearing their armor until 92 minutes into this movie. (Which probably leads you to your next question, so I will go ahead and answer it: Power Rangers is 124 minutes long, so strap in.

That was my big caveat to seeing this in theaters. If it takes that long for them to put the suits on then no thanks.

if you've seen the trailer/tv spot that's pretty much all of the suit scenes. Heck even the suit being put on them in the trailer is basically the only "morphing" sequence

That said, the review suggests they're dialing back the "fixation" on martial arts, which is exactly the wrong thing to do with a Power Rangers movie.

From the trailers, that's definitely what the movie seems like.

At least aesthetically it looks like the movie wants to be Transformers

Part of me says Fantastic Four all over again, the other part of me says my favorite part of Mighty Morphin' Power rangers was when the kids were just hanging out in the youth center, so I'm okay with this maybe.

Beetle Borgs was a better series.

Sounds like it has Godzilla syndrome.

Oh well, as long as it's lit when they morph and the fights have some impact I might be okay with it (like Godzilla).

To be fair, MMPR Movie, they only morphed twice and Turbo they were only in their suits once?

Majority of both movies, they were unmorphed.

Well in the TV show it wasn't unusual to only have one or two morphed battles and one zord battle but that's for a 20ish minute TV show, for a movie you should really have more battles spaced out throughout the movie.

Cool. I saw this movie at a preview screening in November before most of the effects were done. I liked it but I recognized there was enough room for the film to be made better or worse. Seems like they stuck it through.

Edit: Shoot, should have checked the last page. Hopefully consensus pulls around.

You are correct.

All of that money spent mostly on this and I personally think it looked terrible in context of the complete movie:
