Rangers vs. Counterfeiters
21 April 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Solid Holt-Rafferty entry. As Texas Rangers, the guys are assigned to go undercover and break up a counterfeit ring in the Texas badlands. Naturally complications ensue. Plot means more here than usual as getting the goods on the gang comes to dominate all else. There's no hard riding, and one brief barroom brawl. Of course, Rafferty gets to whisper sweet nothings to the lovely Dixon, but her role is worked nicely into the plot. No scenery to speak of, since filming never leaves greater LA. Still, our movie duo never needed Lone Pine-type mountains as a draw. My only gripe is the poorly staged street shootout that's a little too sloppy even for a matinée production. Anyway, Dixon is real eye-candy, sinister Ken MacDonald gets to play a good guy, while the boys are in fine form. So what else can a front-row fan ask for.
