Power Ranger Dredd Bootleg

I know this isn’t Friday but then again this isn’t just any fan film. This is a crazy re-imagining of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers brought to us by director Joseph Kahn and produced by Adi Shankar (executive producer of Dredd). This is a look into the future of the Power Rangers like you never would have imagined. The best part is it stars James Van Der Beak and Katee Sackhoff. I have to admit that this is just plain Bad Ass!

There has been a lot of talk about a Power Rangers Movie coming to theaters and it seems like they are more popular than ever. This is a great time to be a fan because now we also get this 14 minute, gritty alternate universe story. I think that it actually follows the events of the original series but this is just what came out of the wonderfully twisted mind of Adi Shanker. There is tons of action, well delivered dialog (something unusual for the Power Rangers) and awesome visual effects.

mmprcapture02Truthfully the costumes could have been a bit better but its obvious they were trying to avoid looking too cartoony like the originals. I can definitely see how your standard Power Ranger costume probably wouldn’t fit well in this story. I can however, give them a pass on it because it still looks pretty awesome. If you are a fan of the original Power Rangers, or any Power Rangers iteration for that matter, you’re definitely gonna want to give this a watch. The only other thing I wish would have gone in this film is Jason David Frank. Yes I am a fan of his and as much as the referenced Tommy Oliver in this, they unfortunately got someone else to play him…Oh well.

As always I want to hear from you Nerd Nation. What did you think of this amazing fan film and would you actually like to see the Power Rangers movie be something like this? Leave me your thoughts in a comment below, on the Facebook page, or on Twitter…Enjoy!
