Trivia

During the sequence in Africa when Tommy saves Katherine, after he takes her to shore, Tommy was actually supposed to be attacked by a crocodile. He would have been dragged into the water by his Power Box backpack when the crocodile grabs it in its jaws, but he manages to jam a nearby log into the animal's mouth and swims to shore. When the crocodile follows Tommy to shore, Katherine takes a blow torch from her Power Box and fires a torch to scare the crocodile away. The sequence was ultimately cut to keep the running time of the film short. This is explains why there is a photo of Katherine holding a flame thrower on the back of the back cover of the movie's VHS and DVD, but it isn't seen in the film. See more »

Goofs

When Cat falls to a cliff and holds to a branch, she calls the Zeonizer bracelets to morph before falling. The left one gets stuck on the branch and when she falls the bracelet slips from her left arm. This is shown in a close shot. One shot later, when we see Catherine falling, she is wearing both bracelets. A shot later, she again doesn't wear the left one, and it's falling close to her while she catches it in the air.

Quotes

Divatox: Lerigot holds the only key to freeing Maligore, the Great Flame of Destruction, and my husband-to-be. Once we are wed, I will use his powers to raid all the riches of the universe. Oooh, thinking about it just gives me goose bumps.
Elgar: Kinda gives me gas.

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).
