Storyline

A young ranger in the Montana wilderness discovers the great forces of nature while learning the importance of honor, trust and integrity. Legendary veteran ranger Bill Bell educates the young man and guides him toward manhood. The year is 1919-a time when being a ranger meant more than operating expensive equipment. Forest fires were fought with guts and courage, not chemicals and airplanes. Bill Bell was the toughest ranger in an elite crew of very rugged men. A figure of heroic proportions, he was generally feared and respected by all. It was even rumored that he had at one time killed a sheep farmer, which only fueled his already enormous reputation. The young ranger does everything to remain in the good graces of Bill Bell, the senior ranger he idolizes. Their tentative rapport grows into a friendship through a hilarious and heroic rite of passage in which the younger ranger meets the test-and the woman of his dreams.

Good Clean Western Movie
4 March 2006 | by (Pensacola, Fl) – See all my reviews

Just viewed this movie. Thought it is a great western. It showed me realistic scenes of how the people of the early 1900's of the western section of the U. S. lived. It has a good plot to where it was teaching a young boy who was starting on his the ways of his future will be. It seem that he was learning the ropes of forestry work from the schooling of Bill Bell Ranger in Charged. The Forest crew worked as a team with some problems that seem to be handled. This movie reminded me of the days of when I was a young sailor on my first ship at sea. We were isolated on the water and we worked as a team to keep things going and moral high. The cook in both situations is one of the moral makers. This cook had a thing with cards and keeping the crew happy. In the end, the cook brought the ship in by winning at the poker table and the end of the summer season in the forestry camp end in a happy ending.
