Power Rangers (2017) gained neutral reviews from critics and audience
Some fans really loved the work of director Dean Israelite in 2017’s Power Rangers. But, sadly, the movie did not set a benchmark in the film industry. Besides, it didn’t gain positive remarks from the critics.

Reportedly, the movie grossed only $142 million globally and had a production budget of $100 million. The studio suffered a huge loss and to make things worse, it gained 50% critical approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The audience gave 65% of the score which is better than the critics rating. However, it is not enough for the creators to believe it was just some sort of marketing issue.
At the end of the day, the 2017 #PowerRangersMovie still exists. Hasbro isn't gonna swoop in and swipe all our Blu-Rays, gifs and screencaps just because they're making their own movie. The fandom sure as hell isn't gonna let this movie be forgotten. pic.twitter.com/lRynop7Mva
