Based on the hit children's television series The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, this film has the teenage superheroes doing battle with the other-worldly villainess Divatox (Hilary Shepard Turner). She is the wife of an evil lord named Maligore who is imprisoned in an energy vacuum inside one of Earth's volcanos. Freeing him would mean doom for the universe. Divatox needs to bring a good wizard named Lerigot (Jon Simanton) to the volcano, because he has the key to unlocking the energy prison. Lerigot flees his planet and escapes to Earth just before Divatox's henchmen capture him.… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A high-spirited fantasy adventure."
‑ , Hollywood Reporter
"Five-year-olds who have read their Shakespeare will recognize that Turbo is a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing."
‑ Lawrence Van Gelder, New York Times
"Bland '90s Power Rangers film has lots of violence, peril."
‑ Brian Costello, Common Sense Media
"Nearly unbearable."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"As the picture finally ended, I found myself musing about poor Amy Jo Johnson. I wondered if, when she was on the set, she was hoping that some producer would see this show, find her hidden talent and save her from having to do this anymore."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Like the TV series, the pic features makeup and special-effects gimmickry that are far less persuasive than what might be found at second-rate theme-park attractions."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"A purgatory of low-budget interplanetary adventure."
‑ Jane Horwitz, Washington Post
"Works a little better than the first Power Rangers movie but will not extend its appeal beyond the show's fan base."
‑ Douglas Pratt, DVDLaser
"As amateurish as any special-effects driven effort in recent memory."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"The formula is so unshakeable in its blandness that, within the context of the Rangers universe, the twists Turbo serves up can only be described as ingenious."
‑ Scott Renshaw, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"With minimalist and universal fantasies as their points of departure, the superheroic deeds evolve only incrementally beyond the realistic -- a deeply satisfying process."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"Turbo is a solid follow-up to the entertaining 1995 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"The dialogue is atrocious, as are the wretched signature Morphin moves: Someone get these Rangers to a martial-arts school!"
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"For me, that low-tech, Fifties, camp charm wore a mite thin by the second half-hour, but then, I'm not the target audience, am I?"
‑ Nick Barbaro, Austin Chronicle
