Trivia

In an original draft of the script, after Jason (Austin St. John) and Kimberly (Amy Jo Johnson) had been turned evil when they were sacrificed into Maligore's pit, it would have been revealed that they would have had enhanced strength as a result. This explains why they are able to fight the Turbo Rangers with ease and why Tommy is struggling when an evil Jason tries to strangle him. However, the scene with the explanation was cut due to the film's allowed running time. See more »

Goofs

When Divatox orders Elgar to throw her two captured humans (Jason and Kimberly) into the bilge, she raises her left arm up in the air in this wideshot. In the immediate closeup it is now her right arm which is lifted upwards. See more »

"Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie" is a film that has to be seen to be disbelieved. The first film, 1995's "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie", brought the six butt-kicking teens from the Fox Kids series to the big screen for the first time. That movie was not all that bad. It had some decent special effects, a somewhat interesting bad guy (Ivan Ooze), and the six young actors who play the Power Rangers were fun to watch. Plus, that film had a bigger budget. But they went back to the cheapness of the TV show with "Turbo". The special effects, production design, and costumes are so cheap and cheesy that you wonder why 20th Century Fox gave the go-ahead to let these filmmakers (who are close to the TV show) make this film. Also, the script is much worse than it was in the first movie. Bulk and Skull have more screen time here. It has one of the least interesting villains of all time (actually, a villainess). It's very, very, very, very, very, juvenile. And the Power Ranger actors look as if they want to escape this atrosity. So I have one question. Why did they release this movie to theaters? This should have been released straight to video. Or better yet, release it as a TV movie, were this series started in the first place. This movie was totally inappropriate for the big screen.
