Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
Now I know you’re wondering why I made ‘Power Rangers’ number 1 on the list. The movie was quite commendable because the writers tried to move away from the boring routine of all power rangers franchise and created something new and comical. You can’t understand what I mean till you go watch it yourself, it is already showing in a cinema near you.
