      Charles Solomon FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) Very low-budget, amateurish but well-intentioned... It means well and is innocent, but it is no more than "okay." Oct 14, 2022 Full Review Brian Costello Common Sense Media It's a mix of live-action and some animation, and while it doesn't really break any new ground with the story, there's a clear love for Japanese entertainment on display. Rated: 3/5 Oct 12, 2022 Full Review Nathan Mattise Ars Technica The performances carry the film's slower moments, particularly Gandhi as Vik since that character has a little more internal conflict to navigate than his pal Shawn. Oct 19, 2021 Full Review Clint Worthington The Spool Its deep well of affection for its inspirations is more than enough to smooth over some rough spots. Oct 14, 2021 Full Review Andrew Mack ScreenAnarchy Kindhearted tribute to the life lesson moments at the end of every episode of Power Rangers. The action is just a fun way to reward yourself for learning something other than how to land a proper hero stance off your living room couch. Rated: 4/5 Oct 8, 2021 Full Review Harris Dang Their Own League Ike Boys is a charming, entertaining and goofy trifle that honours its inspirations with love and respect while providing a warm story about will resonate with young audiences about passion, adventure and friendship. Otakus will love it. Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 5, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Zyleth B More epic = more awesome. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Hack G 🤔 Weird movie, I know they also try to make a retro Japan film and some anime but how did this movie release in 2022?. I don't know how I can watch full film with this resolution. About the plot I think it okay, not too bad not too good, not too boring and I think it did well in some scenes. It's worth a try Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review Twinkle M The best movie in the world😍💕❤️👍 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Sketchydrawer Great movie! I like how different it felt from super sentai even if it was inspired heavy by it and still was able to tell its charming story, it was refreshing and even made me laugh at some points. I hope to own it in physical form one day :D Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/02/22 Full Review Ruaridh M I watched this because I was bored and wanted something cheesey but fun. I was not disappointed, I was actually very impressed with how good this movie actually was. It's a great family friendly movie and the cast was solid, the acting was more convincing than alot of these hyped movies coming out in 2022 . With clear inspirations from old 90's anime and the likes of power rangers with equally corny costumes but it all just clicks and fits perfectly. This is no Marvel movie by any means but honestly i'd say thats one of the best things about it. 100% recommend watching. This movie deserves way more credit for its return to old school entertainment. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/29/22 Full Review Read all reviews
