Any superhero worth his mask knows that timing is everything, but, as every kid who ever donned one of those rainbow-hued costumes can attest, the briefly trendy Power Rangers ran out of gas long before this movie made its brief run in theaters. Sure, the fearsome fivesome in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie are given some new powers and new wheels, but the action — the kicks, blocks, and punches that created a generation of karate-chopping kindergartners — just feels old. On video, the uninspired story about a wise old alien threatened by an evil space pirate feels like a too-long TV episode and will have kids reaching for their remotes in search of some hipper heroes. In other words, it’s morphin’ time. D
