All Rise...

Judge David Johnson came down with a bad case of Zordoroids last week.

Editor's Note

Our review of Power Rangers Megaforce: The Mysterious Robo Knight, published February 22nd, 2014, is also available.

The Charge

When their teamwork is challenged, the Wild Sword will change the Rangers forever.

The Case

The Warstar aliens are circling the planet, looking to take it over and maybe ruin it with pollution, too. Super Earth guardian Gosei has recruited five more teenagers to assume the Power Ranger mantles and wage war as Power Rangers Megaforce. When needed, they fire up their magic cell phones and pop in limited edition Gosei trading cards to transform and drop the hammer.

• "Prince takes Knight"
The aliens dispatch PsychoTick, a monster tick that is quite literally psychotic. His goal: to sap the power out of the Rangers' ace sixth man Robo Knight so the bad guys can reprogram him into a weapon of destruction.

• "Man and Machine"
Next up to get his head caved in is ShadowSerpent, who can steal his adversaries' shadows and that hurts them or something. To combat this diabolical power, the Rangers deploy their weather-scrambling gear and do more damage to the climate in one bout than the collected bovine farts in all of history.

• "Ultra Power"
Gosei sounds the five-alarm Ranger warning bell when he alerts his crew about the powerful Wild Sword, which has the ability to shift the balance of war. To keep the Rangers occupied, the aliens send in the Distractor, a humongous monster with the power to—get ready for it—distract.

• "Last Laugh"
NoJoke is out to disarm the Power Rangers with his raucous comedy bits. The Rangers, possessing sophomoric senses of humor, are powerless to resist the monster's fart gags. Thankfully, Robo Knight is an utter bore.

Same game-plan as every other Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers extravaganza: plot device, transform, kung fu, lasers, Zord-out, monster mash, rinse, repeat. The slight twist here is the trading cards gimmick, an obvious cash grab, but, come on, that's what Power Rangers Megaforce is. Oh, and everyone's real worried about the environment, despite the fact one of those monster/Zord bouts probably leads to more deforestation than all of the G8's logging efforts combined.

The Verdict

Not guilty.
