What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie is the 1995 full-length movie version of the popular 1990s kids' show. Like the TV show, characters frequently fight with martial arts-style kicks, punches, and spins toward inevitable victory. A warrior priestess might be dressed a little too skimpy for some parents, and the occasional name calling, while silly and relatively tame ("dingledorks") might not be something parents want repeated by younger kids.
- Families can talk about the fight scenes. What were specific moments in the movie where the fighting felt over-the-top or cartoonish? What would have made it more realistic?
- What are the positive messages you can glean from this show, or is it all about action and violence?
- What's the difference between the "good" guys and the "bad" guys?
