There were some issues with Power Rangers but it did know when was a good time to play homage to its roots. At the end of the movie, after the bad guy is dead, we get a shot of Amy Jo Johnson and Jason David Frank, the original pink and green rangers respectively, looking on the destruction. It's a nice little nod that only fans would really notice but it felt natural. It's probably a good thing that they went with that cameo instead of the one that Frank posted to instagram recently.
It's not a bad cameo but it feels a little forced and awkward. The scene between Trini (Becky G.) and Kimberly (Naomi Scott) isn't a bad scene actually. It's goofy and a bit silly which would have been a welcome change in a movie that didn't feel silly or goofy enough until the last twenty minutes. There is still no word as to whether or not we're going to get more entries into the series. It didn't do well at the box office but the toy and home release sales could be enough to persuade the studios into giving the series another chance. Once the movie got going it got a lot better and if the second installment can hit the ground running instead of waiting until the last third of a power ranger movie to show the power rangers then it could be a lot of fun. For now the series is in limbo which is a shame for the people who got a lot of joy out of the movie.
