QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi: A disparate group of teens unexpectedly find themselves with superpowers they'll need to use to save the world from a power-hungry villain.
PLOT:
In the California town of Angel Grove, Jason (DACRE MONTGOMERY) is the star high school quarterback, but he hates the pressure of that and thus tries to pull off a wrong-headed prank that gets him in trouble with the police. It also lands him in school detention where he meets Kimberly (NAOMI SCOTT), a former cheerleader whose mean-spirited actions have resulted in her friends dumping her. He also saves tech nerd Billy (RJ CYLER) from a bully, and when Billy manages to circumvent Jason's home detention ankle bracelet, the jock agrees to drive him out to an active gold mine where Billy's father used to work.

There, they run into Kimberly and also meet Zack (LUDI LIN) whose brashness masks the fact that the only person he has in the world is his terminally ill mother, as well as Trini (BECKY G), whose tomboyish ways don't sit well with her high-strung mom. When Billy's latest experiment brings down part of a rock wall, the five are exposed to odd power coins that accidentally give all of them superpowers.

Trying to figure out what's happened, they return to the gold mine and end up in a cave system where they come across a long-buried spaceship that contains a sentient robot named Alpha 5 (voice of BILL HADER) who managed to place the essence of his master, Zordon (BRYAN CRANSTON), into the ship's computer system before his physical body died.

That was sixty-five million years ago when Zordon was one of several Power Rangers who were trying to thwart the efforts of one of their former team members, Rita Repulsa (ELIZABETH BANKS), who turned evil and simply wanted more power. The teens learn that due to them possessing those power coins they're to become the new Power Rangers. From that point on, they train in ways to battle Rita who's recently been resurrected and is amassing gold and created monstrous creatures to help her destroy the world in her quest to obtain a special power crystal.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They probably will if they're into the Power Rangers universe.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For sequences of sci-fi violence, action and destruction, language, and for some crude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
