Power Rangers Goes Dark and Awesome!
Someone is clearly reading my blog, because the Internet has produced a dark, gritty Power Rangers fan film that is taking the world by storm! Be warned, this is absolutely not safe for work or kids. It’s got swearing, nudity and violence. But it’s still awesome.
That’s Katee Sackhoff as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, and James Van Der Beek as Rocky the Red Ranger. Entitled Power/Rangers, it’s directed by Joseph Kahn, and you can read an interview he did with Hitflix about the project. This was apparently just a one-off fun thing to do. It’s not for profit, it’s not an audition to direct the new Power Rangers reboot. But it’s definitely a project that shows a gritty Power Rangers reboot would be awesome.
Hats off to everyone involved in this project. As a geeky, nostalgic fan of Power Rangers, this was everything I could have wanted and more.
