Awfully Good Movies - Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie (Video)

Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie (1997)
Directors: David Winning & Shuki Levy
Stars: Johnny Yong Bosch, Nakia Burrise, Jason David Frank

With the new POWER RANGERS movie hitting theaters this past weekend, Awfully Good Movies is here to take you back to 1997 and the early days of the Power Rangers, as we review TURBO: A POWER RANGERS MOVIE! Though we have yet to see whether the new POWER RANGERS merits a sequel, the first flick from 1995 sure as hell got one, and this sequel helped transition the POWER RANGERS TV show between the ZEO and TURBO seasons. But this time, instead of Rita Repulsa and Ivan Ooze, we've got a cleavage-showing temptress named Divatox. Instead of Billy or Rocky wearing the Blue Ranger suit, we get an annoying little cute kid with a chili-bowl haircut. And instead of feeling like a movie, this sequel basically just looks and feels like a 99-minute long episode of the TV show, one which just might test your fond childhood memories of the Power Rangers. All I'm saying is, I think you may want to inject yourself with some "Mighty MORPHINE" to power through this flick. Ay-yi-yi, indeed!

And in case you've been trapped in a space dumpster for the past 10,000 years, catch up on our previous episodes of Awfully Good Movies. MAKE MY YouTube LINKS GROOOOOW!

Extra Tidbit: If you thought this movie felt long at 99 minutes, its first cut was 3 HOURS LONG, and none of the deleted footage has turned up to this day. The deleted scenes were to include more character development for Kimberly and Jason, who were the only two of the original Rangers to accept co-director Shuki Levy's offer of getting all five original Rangers back together in the sequel. Amy Jo Johnson only accepted because she was contracted for two POWER RANGERS movies, while Austin St. John needed money to support him and his mom.
