Some of the most incompetent filmmaking ever!
19 September 1999 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Now, I knew this was going to be a bad movie. But OW! I didn't think it would be as bad as this! First of all, if you haven't watched the show, you'll have no idea as to what's going on. Second, the dialogue is incredibly bad. One example: When they rangers see their new cars, one comments something like, "Those are just ordinary cars." She's answered, "No, these are EXTRAORDINARY cars!" I was rolling on the floor with some of this bad dialogue!

The movie is also badly edited and directed. Take the scene when the green car, floating on water, moves out of the ship and into the open water. We never actually see the car moving out of the ship - the camera is placed on the deck of the boat, several feet back. From what we see, it's obvious the floating car was hiding next to the ship all along.

There are two cretins for comic relief - neither of them is funny, or serves any purpose to the plot. The acting by everyone is HORRIBLE! There isn't any real action scene until half the movie is over! The rangers don't actually become rangers in action until the last 20 minutes or so!

This would be a great movie for MST3K, if it was still playing.
