The Power Rangers are making a comeback with the new film coming out, but with this honest trailer, Screen Junkies takes us back to 1995 when the first Power Rangers movie (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) debuted.
I never got into Power Rangers in a legitimate way (I was too busy with superheroes), so I don’t have the nostalgia for the show that many do now. The honest trailer calls to your attention quite a few times that the film is very campy if you give it a rewatch. Watch the honest trailer below:
Of course the goal of Honest Trailers is to poke fun at all parts of the film, and the Screen Junkies do not back down here. From the recognition of the campy humor to the costumes allowing for stunt double tradouts, this Honest Trailer about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers might leave you asking why exactly you were ever fascinated with such an odd show.
The “rebooted” Power Rangers movie releases in just a couple days on March 24, 2017. Until then, watch this Honest Trailer and try to maintain a positive outlook as the Screen Junkies destroy you childhood. Here is the summary for the new film:
Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
