    As someone who's not a Power Rangers fan, I gotta say I love how cheesy and true to the original this feels in content and visuals. No new age plot revolving smartphones or whatever, no new tech that's more like today's standards, no hyper realistic makeup or CGI, just guys in tight suits fighting each other for some space reason. It's beautiful.

    “They just made it as a regular episode of Power Rangers from 1992,” I’m pretty sure that’s what they were aiming for. This is what every remake is trying to achieve, I see this as a win and not a lost.

    • HyperdrivePics
      HyperdrivePics Před 5 měsíci +76

      YES! In so many big and small ways, it was faithtful to the original show. The fact that it felt like a lost episode of the show that was only just released is a compliment and everything I wanted from it as a lifelong fan.

      Yeah, I would have loved to see them. There was a brief almost cameo, maybe you missed it. Their faces were on a billboard that got ruined in one of the fights. It looked like they opened a food truck or something.
      Maybe the actors didn’t want to partake beyond that. They sure were memorable though.

      And the fact that, somehow, with all the ranger stuff like Turbo/Zeo/Space, all direct sequels, none of the post-Mighty Morphin' rangers stuff is ever mentioned in anything to do with Mighty Morphin'. The Power Rangers timeline is wack.

    • zjzr08
      zjzr08 Před 5 měsíci +10

      ​@DuskFan They referenced other rangers teams and other rangers were captured - Zeo Ranger 2 Yellow was interestingly the only Zep ranger captured there as the other Zeo Rangers ARE in this special (Tommy albeit voiced, Kat, Adam and Rocky).

    For once, I actually respect that, whether the fans wanted it or not, they wanted to give Thuy the send off they felt she deserved. I mean, at the time of her death, she’d already been gone from the series too long to justify something like this. I think they were very respectful with weaving that into the storyline.
    But I do agree with your point of “who was the intended target audience?” My kids aren’t into MMPR or power rangers as a whole like my husband and I are, and there’s always going to be a level of Camp Cheese when it comes to rangers anything.
    Overall, I enjoyed this special. Cried like a fcking baby at the tributes at the end tho 🥲

    TBH I love how they kept the cheesiness, the low budget costumes, the goofy fights choreography. They didn’t try to modernize it too much. It’s a good way to say one last goodbye to a childhood show.

    "But you know what's been on no one's mind for like 20 years, Power Rangers"
    Alex, they've been making new Power Rangers almost every year since the original, and its had a loyal following the entire time.
    EDIT: Also as a side note, Amy Jo Johnson officially said it wasn't about money, she said that maybe she didn't feel like dressing up in spandex at her age.

    • zjzr08
      zjzr08 Před 5 měsíci +39

      Maybe my hunch that she just doesn't want to act again and just more comfortable directing or writing maybe.

      @Kaley Lindsay I get what you are saying, but considering that she could have easily said she wants to be paid what she's worth and fans would have agreed with her. Like John DiMaggio, she knows what bringing her back would mean to fans, so she should have been paid accordingly.
      It's why I personally believe her actual reason

  • Michael Bellonis
    Michael Bellonis Před 5 měsíci +16

    Not only is it not a soft reboot of the franchise and is just an anniversary special…it’s also a direct sequel of the events that occurred in “In Space”.
    I understand Power Rangers not being on your radar..but it’s been a continuing franchise that’s been steadily building its lore for decades, and has even spawned a successful multiversal comic line that’s canon.
    This feels like its coming from a place of…”ignorance” is a strong word, but..that.

    As a fan who hasnt bothered with any of the other rangers, not only was it nice to be able to have spent an hour with people whom felt like I was catching up with old friends, it was a wonderful way to remember and honour Thui, and also give a shoutout to Jason. Plus, Amy has stated that while yes, not making as much as she'd like to come back for it, she's also 52. Reprising a role she did very early on in her career plus her own life outside of acting was something she just didn't want to be involved in. I'm actually pretty happy with this show, the horrifying cg final battle aside.

    It's a love letter to the characters and the original version of the show. It is a longer episode exactly how it would have been if it came out 30ys ago, which is the perfect way to do it!

    Just a thing to remember, Amy Jo Johnson had an acting career after Power Rangers. She did come forward and say that it wasn't the pay but the script as the reason that she and Jason David Frank turned down the movie. She's going to be writing a power rangers comic for Boom in the near future.

      I’m telling you as a professional Filmmaker that was her polite excuse of why she wasn’t part of the project. Not only is she a sag actress but she’s an actress that’s been a main character on numerous TV shows and TV movies. The Power Rangers get paid peanuts and it looks cheesy as hell like some amateur Film. I guarantee her agent and manager would’ve told her no you’re not doing that. And she probably never gave it a second thought. The actors in this series and they’re lucky if they’re getting about 500 a day. Whereas an actress for a professional TV show is making nearly around $30-$50,000 an episode which is about 5 to 7 days of work. So yeah, it was a mix of money, and the fact that it would look really bad on your career to go back to this from the well received shows that she’s been a part of that are professionally made.

    • PinkSakuraBunnie
      PinkSakuraBunnie Před 5 měsíci +20

      ​@ThatGothGamer Daven honestly that's just sad. Yes she went places after her time on PR, which is great bc I always liked her, but it seems so snobby to be like I'm not doing that trash, I'm above that. It's a nostalgia thing, it helped launch her career, and I see no shame in joining in a one time anniversary special MEANT to be just as cheesy and stuff as the original. If it was just a badly written movie etc. that would be one thing, but they are purposefully making it that way as a throwback (almost like parody movies like Not Nother Teen Movie as an example). And I'm really surprised Jason David Frank didn't do it either given how long he did the series and how even up to his recent unfortunate passing he engaged with ppl regarding Power Rangers in a positive light, happy to delight old PR fans. I would have thought this would have been right up his alley and to think it wouldn't have wrapped up before his passing too so it would have been a nice final tribute to him.

    • Olivia McNeil
      Olivia McNeil Před 5 měsíci +4

      I’ve heard about the comic book and I would’ve loved to see her in this special as much as the next person, but if this comic book she’s writing is the only thing that she’ll ever want to do with Power Rangers ever again, so be it, especially if it’s something to do with Power Rangers written by an original cast member, i’m pretty sure in spite of it being a darker retelling, that’s the appeal of JDF’s Legend of the White Dragon.

      @PinkSakuraBunnie maybe she was self conscious about being on camera....she still looks good, but maybe it felt weird being a middle aged woman doing back flips and karate kicks on camera the way she used to in her early 20s back in the 90s....

    Kat and rocky were technically the last holders of the red and pink Dinoranger power (i mean the green ranger power is also gone and tommy should have been the white ranger) they took over for Kimberly and Jason, then kat and rocky went on to be the pink and blue zeo rangers and then Kat went on to be the pink turbo ranger; rocky would have been blue but he "got hurt " doing the flip kick he did in this movie that "never lost it"

    • MattZRJSRoxy
      MattZRJSRoxy Před 5 měsíci +1

      the powers have always been inconsistent. Kat shouldn't have been Turbo in Super Ninja Steel since she gave that to Cassie and MMPR Red are usually traded between Jason and Rocky since it was Jason in Forever Red and we can likely assume it was him in Super Megaforce, Rocky was Red in Super Ninja Steel then we see Red again in Beast Morphers which was Jason.
      Green powers have been established as being back due to Tommy's Master Morpher.

    • Jacked Hughman

    My cousin and I were stoned to the bone, neither of us knew anything about this anniversary special, it was #9 on trending movies on Netflix and I convinced him we should watch it to make fun of it. In my adult life I have allowed myself to cry four times: when I had my first serious relationship breakup, when my grandmother died, and while watching Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once & Always. I fucking cried twice during the viewing. This was a masterpiece. It was silly and bad, but despite these disadvantages it made me feel tremendous emotions.

    I don’t know you but this was great. This is what the fans of original have been waiting for. It was one of epic things ever. I’m so glad they bought back Zack, Billy, Kat and Rocky one more time to become power rangers again. I for one would like to see a sequel. It was one of the best things that ever came out of Power Rangers. This was for the fans. It was a great tribute to the late JDF and Thay. I hope that they make a sequel to this.

    What I like about Power Rangers is that it's super wholesome. I put it on for my 9yo and it held his attention. I was a child of 80s so missed the Power Rangers trend. I always thought it was just a lame show. But as a parent my older kids got into Power Rangers Samurai when they were younger and that when I came to appreciate the shows. It has overacting, cheesy jokes, crazy villan costumes and pretty cool fight scenes, but that makes it quality pantomime and the character transformation sequences are fun and you just want to learn their moves too (well I did as a parent 😂).

    This is a win for me, when people reboot things from 20, 30 yeard ago, it's always left soulless, but this is cheesy, and campy, I love it actually.
    The young actress is also a nice addition, I thought they would make her more annoying but I understood her motivations and didn't think she didn't fit or something.

    Okay, I saw it out of curiosity and I have to say it was WAY more watchable than the original show. I don’t mind cheesy 90s FX but the original show was just too surface level writing and plot for my tastes.
    The movie really did feel like a way to honour Thuy, the yellow ranger, and I think they captured that well. Trini’s daughter is friggin amazing, my favourite. 🙌🏻
    The set and FX updates are appropriate imo. They capture the essence of the original without it looking silly or forced. The Fruit Bar looked awesome. 👍🏻
    It’s kid friendly but will also capture the hearts of adult fans who remember the original.
    Yes, it had cheesy lines and trendy meme jokes - but that’s in spirit of the original and it didn’t feel cringe.
    I think this was actually the best modern reboot of any show I’ve seen so far. Yep. Good on Billy, since I hear it was his “passion project” out of love for Thuy, but man, his acting needs to step up. Way too dry.
    Zack was great. I think his acting improved since the 90s.
    Overall, enjoyable. I wish Rita could have come back. Her as a robot felt like a caricature of her former self, and overall less dangerous. I know that actor passed away too though.

    You do know that Thuy Trang died over 20 years ago, right? There has been some other stuff done over the years to give her some manner of "send off", but many felt that she was kinda just replaced without much fanfare at the time... Kinda understandable considering the target audience back in the day, but those fans are all adults now and felt that she deserved better, including David Yost (Billy/Blue Ranger). That's why he was so involved in the writing and production of "Once and Always". It was definitely a passion project for him since he and Thuy were so close back in the day.

    • Lux Superbia
      Lux Superbia Před 5 měsíci +143

      also David Yost had to leave the PR cast because he had been harrased non-stop by staff due to his sexuality (Saban never apologizing to him was the reason he never came back), so the fact that after he finally returns he gets to be producer of the movie is probaly very cathartic for him.

    To those who don't know the whole story on why JDF didn't come back as Tommy at 7:20 Hasbro stole JDF's Legend of the White Dragon movie script and said he didn't want the Tommy character anywhere near the PR special after finding out what they did, but when he died, Hasbro put him in anyway after changing the script. That's why you see Tommy lose so easily when he fought that monster. JDF never wanted a tribute from Hasbro. You can find it on CZcams.

Idk, I'm not sure what I expected, but it was definitely much more than what we got.

    Also... I feel really sorry for Billy's actor, what he had to endure back than with Depression and all. Also I don't know what he was up to this point and in what fields he worked if at all... But damn... He really "acted" like every inch of energy and life was drained from his body. Like... If this had been a low budget school film, that would have been the performance I'd expect from someone who had their first acting lesson. He didn't emote, he didn't know what to do with his hands... It's like they called him a day or two before shooting and his cat died the day before and he needed some money for the funeral.
    I really had fun with the special over all. But I can't stop to feel just bad for Billy s actor... Maybe he didn't act in a long time or something else was up, but man...

  • S.A.M.
    S.A.M. Před 5 měsíci +2

    Watching Alex freak out over this is simply amusing to me. After watching a ton of different Power Ranger and Super Sentai series, this is TAME compared to some of the things that happen in those shows, just in terms of basic premise, let alone individual episodes.
    Also, the differences can be fairly extreme; the US Power Rangers was just five teens with attitude, but in the original Japanese version (Zyuranger), they were actually these young warriors who swore to battle the evil witch Bandora if she ever escaped her imprisonment.
    So these people have been in stasis SINCE THE DINOSAUR AGE when Bandora finally breaks free, so on top of fighting her, they also have to learn to survive in the modern world.
    Also the "Zords" are actually these sacred guardian dinosaur god things that help them in their battle against evil.
    And what we know as Power Rangers Turbo was actually a more comedic version in Japan, Carranger, where the cars are based on literal automotive CONSTELLATIONS.
    And in the Japanese versions of the older shows, people actually DIED. In one series that never made it to the US (Jetman), the Black Ranger got stabbed by a purse-snatcher and died watching his friends get married.
    Robo-Rita turning the Rangers into action figures is NOTHING.

  • gatchy watchy entertainment bieber brothers

    I as a casual Power Rangers viewer thought this special was pretty good. It felt kind of lonely which was sad, you could tell a lot of the cast didn’t want to comeback and that Adams actor couldn’t really do anything. But it was quite alright. I was really happy hearing Horvitz as Alpha after years of being cockblocked by randos tryin to bask in his glory, and I was really impressed by Rita’s actress, 30 years later, in her 70’s and. She can still do the voice! Incredible! It was great seeing Billy and Zack as there the only other original rangers who have yet to return for anniversary’s. I was also surprised by how darker this film was, I mean Trini gets literally killed and they say words like “Killed” a lot which I thought was a welcomed edition to da Rangers series. The ending tribute was also touching.
    So yeah overall I’d give it a,
    Go Go Power Rangers/ 10

    Idk if it was just for us specifically just cause the rangers are a little older. The OG rangers had the longest run, if I remember correctly. Any kids that just watch the new stuff would be instantly introduced to the old stuff that you can find on the same app. If anything seeing them younger after seeing their full circle moment is probably cooler than it is for the older crowd seeing people pushing 50 acting the same as they did as “teens”.

    Even as a kid I enjoyed the power ranger seasons that were more mature or atleast story driven like in space, Lightspeed, RPM and time force.

    It’s a nice nostalgia trip. It’s nice to see how everyone’s doing and pay tribute to those no longer with us.

    The funny thing about this is that Super Sentai (the show Power Rangers is based on) has been doing 10 year anniversary specials for some of their ranger teams for quite sometime now. Once and Always is kind of like those.

    RIP Tommy and Trini :(
    Won't be the same without them.
    I had the absolute biggest crush on Jason and Tommy when I was in elementary school. My friend and I fought over which of us was going to marry Tommy when we got older.
    After his passing, a friend shared a cartoonist's illustration of Tommy's dinosaur Zord looking up at the sky and seeing clouds in the shape of the White Ranger blowing his flute. I cried buckets.

    I guess the special is for fans who enjoyed the cheesy element of Power Rangers. I laughed my ass off when I watched it.

    As most people have said, this is definitely for the fans. Yes, that means us 30yo who watched SPD, In Space, Dino Thunder and all the others. Personally my favourites were Time Force and SPD. The special was exactly what I expected and I'm glad Netflix decided to put money into it.

      RPM is so slept on. That show was DARK and I loved it. I was not expecting it to have a story like that.

      Yeah, i think they were aiming more for the people who are actually fans of the Pr franchise and not only the first season casual watching. Yes, the people who only watch the first team will enjoy it, but it feels different when you care about the franchise

    CZcamsrs not old enough to understand Once & Always is kinda hilarious. Like, you have to understand the first three seasons of the show and the earlier movies came on VHS. The 90s, man!

    I haven't seen it yet, but it seems to follow exactly the same kind of earnest cheesy wholesomeness that made me sneak out of bed to watch the original show even when I was grounded as a little kid. most sentai shows in Japan are ~still~ like that.

    There were other reasons why Amy Jo couldn’t join, a big one was she couldn’t take the month off to go to film in New Zealand since she has some other projects as a director coming up so it’s not too fair to say it was JUST for moneys sake, though if someone wants to be paid more for their work good on them

    Alex, the series is still on.. the fans of the show love it, so its for kids and for them. youre funny as always, but I think some research would give you the info about the current state of Power Rangers and why it is a big deal to get this special. anyway, great video

    Growing up on these power rangers, this was a dream. It was really well made, dark and enjoyable

    The fact that it felt like an episode from the original series is what made me love it so much! It was horrible and incredible and sooooooo worth the 58 minutes it took to watch.

    • Yoshifan456
      Yoshifan456 Před 5 měsíci +6

      @SnowWolf2150 well, yes but no. It's a lenghty episode with more emotional beats and growth but it kinda follows the same structure as a normal episode

    As a big fan of the originals back when I was a child, I really appreciated and enjoyed this 😄🥰. And you using that musical interlude from Nightwish's Ghost Love Score is perfect 😍

    power rangers is still going actually. New team and season every year. the car flew in the original show too. I love how much attention to detail they put into this movie. Like, adam and aisha are in space setting up what would become power rangers SPD because that show took place in 2025 so we should be catching up to it. Love it. Also the second red and pink rangers are the second red and pink rangers from the second season of mighty morphin power rangers. Half of the cast left and was replaced with new characters. Also I can tell you exactly who this movie was for. It was made for fans who watched the original and still watch the new seasons as they come out. I personally loved this movie and didn't have any complaints about it. It was awsome. But I also think the latest season of power rangers, "Power Rangers Dino Fury" was awsome. Because this was a show I grew up with as a kid and I still love it to this day for all that it is, including the cheesiness. and I cant wait for the next season to come out! Lord zedd is back as the villain and theres even gonna FINALLY be an actual orange ranger! Anyways, loved the video as always Alex. It was hilarious and I love seeing what other people think about movies I've watched.

    What I didn’t understand was how did she manage to capture 3 Lost Galaxy Rangers, 2 Dino Thunder Rangers, and 2 Beast Morpher Rangers. Don’t all seven of them have power ups? Also, I saw Zeo Yellow there too.

    Is it weird I'm actually excited that it centered more around the yellow ranger? She was my favorite as a kid and all the other girls were like 'ew why?' ...like obviously she's the prettiest, she gets her own color (not just a shade of a 'boy' color) and she's a frickin saber tooth tiger! They always relegated her character to the BG and it bugged me. Nice to see in the 30th that they focused on the 'less popular' characters even if it was because they basically didn't have a choice 🥲

    • SofieTheMJFan
      SofieTheMJFan Před 5 měsíci +2

      Yeah it's pretty awesome that it was centered around yellow ranger! Trini and Jason were my favorite rangers
      (Those girls didn't know what they were talking about)

      I was rewatching some of the original show and I think Trini and Jason had the best acting of the group. I can see why they were ur faves as a kid. You had good taste!
      My faves were Pink and Blue but it’s hard to back them as an adult bc the acting is so bad.
      It really felt like a meaningful way to honour the original show and the yellow ranger and actor who played her. I really appreciated that aspect. 💛

      At least some later series didn't sideline theirs. Emily, the yellow ranger from Power Rangers Samurai, had at least whole episode centering around her.

    I haven't watched it, but lines I heard immediately brought me back to the original show though I haven't watched the show in like 20 years and only the movie once every 5 years or so (what can I say, Ivan Ooze is fun and its nostalgic). I think it says a lot when I was 5 and loved this show, at 30 the writing of the lines I heard here reminded me of it. Oh I know how bad they are now, and the lines I'm hearing are cracking me up for how cheesey they are, but the 90s was kind of filled with cheese. Good thing I'm not lactose intolerant.

    It’s not a reboot it’s a special.
    And the power rangers fandom is still alive and kicking
