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 Lerigot arrives on Earth in Africa, it is daytime and it is night in Angel Grove, the city where the Rangers live. After Lerigot arrives on Earth and we see Bulk and Skull in Angel Grove, it is at the baseball field and it is during daytime. When we next see Bulk and Skull a few minutes later in Angel Grove, it is now correctly night time. See more »

Some of the most incompetent filmmaking ever!
19 September 1999 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

Now, I knew this was going to be a bad movie. But OW! I didn't think it would be as bad as this! First of all, if you haven't watched the show, you'll have no idea as to what's going on. Second, the dialogue is incredibly bad. One example: When they rangers see their new cars, one comments something like, "Those are just ordinary cars." She's answered, "No, these are EXTRAORDINARY cars!" I was rolling on the floor with some of this bad dialogue!

The movie is also badly edited and directed. Take the scene when the green car, floating on water, moves out of the ship and into the open water. We never actually see the car moving out of the ship - the camera is placed on the deck of the boat, several feet back. From what we see, it's obvious the floating car was hiding next to the ship all along.

There are two cretins for comic relief - neither of them is funny, or serves any purpose to the plot. The acting by everyone is HORRIBLE! There isn't any real action scene until half the movie is over! The rangers don't actually become rangers in action until the last 20 minutes or so!

This would be a great movie for MST3K, if it was still playing.
