Make no mistake, the Power Rangers are still colour-coded, and still use the corny catchphrase, "It's morphin' time!", but Israelite shoots the film with a muted colour palette and the early action scenes are refreshingly raw.

Elizabeth Banks on Power Rangers: "This one's for my boys"

Banks looks like she's having the time of her life gleefully snatching a homeless man's gold teeth to create her monster and saying lines like, "Let's kill everyone!" and "Make my monsters grow!" while cackling with laughter.
