Massive intergalactic warfare. Heaps of cussin'. Lethal force up the wazoo. Threesomes. Yup, you've probably never seen Power Rangers look like this.
This short film by Joseph Kahn re-imagines the Saturday-morning staple as something a lot closer to Mortal Kombat. Casting James Van Der Beek as a traitorous former comrade and Katie Sackhoff as a grown-up version of the Pink Ranger is a nice bit of fan casting, too.
This might feel like sacrilege but it turns out that hearing a musical callback to the classic Power Rangers theme music while a guy bleeds out after being stabbed by one of the sentai-derived superheroes is... kinda awesome?
