The Power Rangers reboot was much more realistic in tone than the original series, but there was one sequence that pushed that envelope a bit too far.
Ludi Lin played Zack the Black Ranger in the reboot and was directly involved with the scene that did not make the theatrical cut.

While Mighty Morphin is the stateside introduction to the Power Rangers, the series is based on its Japanese predecessor Super Sentai. As Lin describes, the following altercation was even too much for the original creators.
Power Rangers has been going on in Japan for more that 40 years. This is their baby. And they sent the original creator of the Power Rangers to our set for a visit with his whole entourage. They were watching us fight and in Japan in Power Rangers there is not really any blood, just lots of sparks. But that day we were going full out and kept on asking for more and more fake blood.

Power Rangers currently has a 73.33 on ComicBook.com's composite rankings, and you can find the official description below.
