Violence & Scariness

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Power Rangers Megaforce: The Legendary Battle is a 2014 installment from the popular series of movies and TV shows. For younger and more sensitive viewers, the demonic appearances of the bad guys seem tailor-made to cause nightmares. There is some peril; people are shown injured inside and outside damaged and smoking buildings in the aftermath of an alien attack. There is battle violence, sci-fi violence, and martial-arts violence, but it's all relatively tame. For long-time fans of the show, the return of past Power Rangers joining forces with current Power Rangers will be enjoyable.

Is It Any Good?
Longtime fans of the Power Rangers will get a real kick out of this movie. Actors who were Power Rangers dating back to the 1990s are back to team up with the newest Power Rangers to stop Emperor Mavro. Those who remember the show from earlier days will be shocked to realize just how long the Power Rangers have been on TV and DVD.
Aside from the spectacle of the reunion of old cast members, all the typical elements of the Power Rangers are in full effect: the over-the-top bad guys, the never-say-die Power Rangers, and the charmingly cheesy special effects. This one in particular is great fun and serves in part to underscore why the Power Rangers have had such an appeal for such a long time. Even those unfamiliar with the past Power Rangers should enjoy the battle scenes and the action as a whole.
