Something positive
24 July 2000 | by Op_PrimeSee all my reviews

This show was okay. It had some neat stories and some effects which were not all that bad. It had a more serious aspect to it than early Power Rangers. The biggest problem with this show was how it tried to fit in too much, with all weapons, allies and villains. They should of tried to space it out. Otherwise, this was a pretty good show.
