Super heroes on a quest to help people.
11 April 2015 | by frankielaffertySee all my reviews

Eight Rangers was a fun movie to watch. It is something of a parody of Power Rangers and super heroes in general. The director and scriptwriter did a good job of balancing humour with a serious quest to stop the bad guys doing bad things to the kids of Japan. The seven actors who portray the various coloured heroes are a famous boy band that give a standard performance throughout the movie. They start out as a group of losers that come together with time. I felt the use of humdrum places like an old gym or a cluttered police office to be quite funny. The effects were humorous, for example the rockets on their suits or the flashes that happened when they punch some bad guys.An enjoyable movie to watch and not to take seriously. I can imagine the 1960's group the Monkees in a movie like this.
