Holy shit this movie caught me entirely by surprise. David Fincher lite in terms of stylistic choices. Let’s give it up one time for a comedy movie thats shot like a genre film as opposed to boring uninspired cinematography of many studio comedies of late. That long shot in the third act flowed flawlessly. The dark comedy hit 90% of the time. And the performances were top notch. That Denzel bit had me rolling.
That moment when Luc Besson does Star Wars better than Lucasfilm but everyone is going to dismiss this movie because it doesn't have the Disney "formula" or name backing it. And this is coming from someone who LOVED The Force Awakens and is anticipating The Last Jedi. Luc Besson crafted an incredible and visually mindblowing space opera that completely outdoes every bit of "creativity" TFA had and then some. Will unfortunately suffer the same fate as The Fifth Element in that it'll be a box office dissapointment but then in 5-10 years after its release will be widely regarded as a cult classic.
Shout out to my friend Mike for bringing me along as a guest to a press screening of Power Rangers...
So like guys this movie is good. I mean like genuinely good. Unfortunately it's just a good origin story BUT that was expected since this movie is tasked to make you care about the titular Rangers all over again or for some make you care at all. And that the film nails. Truly emphasizing its point of developing these characters…
