Trivia

The shooting script for the film revealed the Turbo powers and their Morphers' keys are based upon Lerigot's magical key/wand he uses in the movie. The omission for this explanation is unknown. See more »

Goofs

When Kimberly (Amy Jo Johnson) tries to escape from Divatox's bilge, the left side of her tank top gets caught on a bolt until Jason (Austin St. John) helps get her free and she escapes. When Kimberly arrives on Muiranthias, she has a hole in her tank top from when it got caught in the bilge, but it is on the right side instead of the left side and remains on the right side for the rest of the film.

Not the best movie
4 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first, I was expecting this movie to be like the first one - cool costumes, original zords, great special effects, etc. In that regard it was quite a bit of a let-down. It was really more of a 90-minute season premiere than an interesting stand-alone movie.

Still, it had its moments: Tommy and Kat in the jungle (that snake scene looked so fake, and when _hasn't_ Kat hurt her leg?!), the two Rangers becoming evil. And it did have a little bit of big-screen drama. The effects weren't exactly morphenominal, but they were pretty much consistent with the show.

The biggest disappointment was the sorry storyline and lack of explanation of where their new powers came from. Of course, there was purportedly an earlier storyline in which Billy returned from Aquitar in need of the Zeo crystal and a scene explaining their new powers, but they cut that part out after David Yost's unpleasant departure from the series.

To sum up, probably wasn't worth it to pay six bucks to see it, but it's definitely a must for any hardcore Power Rangers fan (especially since you kind of needed to see it for the TV season to make sense).
