Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie is a 1997 movie in which there is frequent fantasy-style violence. Characters are constantly doing battle with fists, feet, and crossbows. There also are moments of peril; for example, one of the Power Rangers is nearly choked by a large snake, and after she escapes she hangs from a branch high over raging rapids. Aside from this, the primary antagonist is dressed in an outfit in which her breasts look like they're going to pop out at any time. This same protagonist eats a fly on her leg and makes a big production of chewing it. In another instance, one of the characters makes a joke about passing gas. All in all, the bad costumes, dated special effects, and subpar acting make this installment of the Power Rangers best for the biggest fans of the enterprise only.
