PiercingMetal Thoughts: I won’t lie and say that I was ever a fan or a follower of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers numerous television shows because it just wasn’t my thing. I did love the idea of it and that it brought so many of my friends some entertaining fun but I had enough of my time spent in other Science Fiction and Superhero geek stuff. I’ll admit that this film looks like it might be a good one based on their keeping more of a serious tone like we find happening in all the current crop of action films hitting the theaters. I’m thinking that I will not be seeing this until it hits one of my subscription services on cable but I wonder if you fans of the mythology will be checking it out. You can let me know down in the comments below but if you do end up seeing it today please don’t post any spoiler stuff. No one likes the fun ruined after all. I hope you fans of the franchise really enjoy it and that it meets all of your expectations.
