How are the scores calculated and what does it mean?

Power Rangers AKA Saban’s Power Rangers is a 2017 American action/superhero film directed by Dean Israelite and starring Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott & RJ Cyler. It is the third film of the Power Rangers film franchise, and is a reboot that features the main characters of the original Power Rangers television series. Five ordinary teens must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers. The score is composed by Brian Tyler.

Go go Power Rangers! Even though I can’t remember ever seeing an episode of the TV series or any of the movies, I still have that phrase in my head so somehow the pop culture is very strong with this one. Apart from that phrase, there’s nothing, but within that phrase, there’s a musical theme which makes it interesting. With Brian Tyler at the helm I expect some exciting and youthful action music which ultimately should be all about fun. The score opens with the main theme ‘Power Rangers Theme’ and it’s a theme fit for a modern action story. A bit of Transformers, but also a bit of Battle Los Angeles which you might remember. Derivative? Sure, but it’s also what I expected and also what I wanted. This is pretty awesome.

And with that opening theme, a lot of people are already put off by it, but for those who keep on listening I think will get exactly what they had hoped for. This score is for fans of the type of modern action music made popular by Steve Jablonsky, Trevor Rabin and Hans Zimmer. We’ve also heard Tyler in this mode before and perhaps my favorite score by him, Battle Los Angeles has that type of music and I love that. I wish there were even more of that fantastic guitar though, that’s what really set Battle Los Angeles apart from the rest. This is all fun, like a modern film score rock concert, tailored to suit our most basic needs and for me it works perfectly. As a nice touch, Tyle rhas made a new version of the original Power Rangers theme with ‘Go Go Power Rangers – End Titles’. I prefer the old one with the shouting, but that’s me. Overall though, I had lots of fun with this score, even though I doubt I will remember much from it. It’s a blast to just pick up and play and you should definitely give it a go.
