In this reboot of yet another toy franchise, five high-school students (Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Ludi Lin, Becky G.) are recruited by the disembodied Zordon (Bryan Cranston) to carry on the eons-old struggle against the evil Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks). Misfit teenagers become superheroes and save the universe; The Breakfast Club meets The Avengers. This movie certainly knows its target audience, and, actually, it’s not bad; the cast is attractive, director Dean Israelite keeps things popping, and Cranston and Banks (both barely recognizable behind their CGI disguises) add a dash of grown-up gravitas. It’s cheesy but endearing; there are worse things for teenagers to spend their allowance on. J.L.
