The character of Tommy Oliver, otherwise known as the Green Ranger (and then later the White Ranger) on “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” as played by Jason David Frank, is arguably the most popular Power Ranger of all time. When he debuted, it was initially as a villain, serving Rita Repulsa in her quest to rule the world. Though soundly proving more than a match for the Rangers, he eventually joined the forces of good. Since his inception, fans immediately became attached to the character and would continue to associate their passion for “Power Rangers” by way of Tommy and the Green Ranger. The fanbase surrounding the Green Ranger would continue for years.
Directed by Dean Israelite, the film follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove — and the world — is on the verge of obliteration by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, they quickly discover they’re the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers.
Opening this week, the film stars Dacre Montgomery as the Red Ranger, Naomi Scott as the Pink Ranger, Ludi Lin as the Black Ranger, R.J. Cyler as the Blue Ranger, Becky Gomez as the Yellow Ranger, Bryan Cranston as Zordon and Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa.
