The Power Rangers - The Dark Remix
When you think of the Power Rangers, you think bright colours, clearly defined tales of good against evil and really optimistic, upbeat attitudes in the face of danger. So to see Adi Shankar's re-imagining, where we are introduced to blood, guts, bad language, cold assassinations, all within a techno-dystopian nightmare...well suffice to say it takes something of an adjustment to get use to. Never a really big fan of The Power Rangers it is interesting to see the backlash of hardcore fans who can't move beyond the original camp premise and at the same time the applause by some, who like me, were totally blown away by the concept and execution. James Van Der Beek of Dawson's Creek fame is outstanding in his performance as former ranger come interrogator and with the mighty Katee Sackhoff to rally dialogue off, this is more than just a fan made episode, this is morphin on steroids! Directed by Joseph Kahn.
