When I came across this movie, I had never heard of it, nor of the people involved with it; so I really did not know what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprise! Angry Ranger is a very fun exciting action packed movie, with entertaining fight choreography, and charismatic characters (the writing and story is quite character driven, and very entertaining). One really entertaining factor is how bad ass the anti-hero main character is. This film falls into the brawling street-fight style Kung Fu movie genre; where most of the fighters mainly use punches, kicks, grapples and or nearby weapons; but still in a noticeably Hong Kong Kung Fu movie style way (some other films of this genre include the Donnie Yen 'Tiger Cage' films, the Jackie Chan 'Police Story' films, and the Jackie Chan film 'Gorgeous' ext. This genre of Hong Kong action fighting style is very unlike the fancy Kung Fu fighting style genre; where most of the fighters use elaborate martial arts moves, stylish fighting stances, and eccentric weapon handling. Some films of the fancy genre include Jet Li's 'Tai Chi Master', Jackie Chan's 'Legend of Drunken Master', or Donnie Yen's 'Ip Man' ext.)
I am extremely happy to have come across this rare gem of a film, which I very high recommend to martial arts film fans!
