Power Rangers Are GO (Apologies To The Thunderbirds)

I wouldn’t call myself a fan of the Power Rangers–there are too many things that I can’t quite get my head around about them that get in the way, such as why is it that the lower section of their masks (which are actually helmets by the way) molded like the lower section of a human face?  Wouldn’t it be easier just to show that part of the actors’ actual faces?

And I get that the Power Rangers began as an import from Japan, so the people playing the Rangers during action scenes weren’t the same people who played them in other sequences, but (hopefully?) that issue is being dealt with in the upcoming movie, so it makes little sense to continue with the full-face helmet/mask.

And speaking of that, an actors’ face is one of the most important tools in the craft.

Seeing that you’re removing that from the equation with the Power Rangers (unless they’re going to do like Marvel Studios does with Iron Man) it seems you’re losing a lot of value.

That being said, the the new motion poster they just released is pretty bad-ass.
