Then, alas, the ridiculous plot (riddled with origin-story cliches) has to kick in and you can see the film struggling to maintain its straight face while Bryan Cranston's pin art face bellows at the Rangers and Elizabeth Banks' Rita Repulsa devours every piece of gold she can find.Israelite, who also made the occasionally riveting found-footage, time-travel pic "Project Almanac," gives the images some grit and visual interest but the story just spends too much time on the maudlin coming-of-age and team-building.By the time the Power Rangers figure out how to morph, you're already looking for a way to morph out of the theater, which is a shame because, for whatever it's worth, the cheesiest, most Power Rangers-y moments are saved for the final battle.
