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 »

The First Movie Was better
19 April 2010 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

Power Rangers Turbo: The Television Series is better than Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie! Yes, it should be the other way around, movies are meant to be better than TV, but they got it very wrong here!

The series was filled with Elgar the comical mutant dropping jokes all the time but I can't even remember if Elgar is even in the movie! Adding to this, I don't like that short stupid looking creature that appears in this film. About the only pleasing part of the film was interesting footage of the submarine and that just comes from my liking of submarines.

The first Power Rangers movie was a lot better than this and it is not too hard to understand why Turbo was the last PR movie!
