Storyline

Set after the American Civil War in the 1870s, 'Texas Rangers' is a story about a group of men determined to maintain peace and contain the chaos that is erupting on the Texan frontier. Native Americans are attempting to reclaim their land, Mexicans are pouring over the U.S. border, and renegade outlaws are tearing up the state, so the Texas Rangers swear to protect the innocent and their loved. To do so, they must be willing to maintain the peace where law enforcement cannot, fight while they are out-manned and out-armed by the opponent, and be willing to die for the freedom for which they fight.

Goofs

In the scenes on crossing the Rio Grande you can clearly see the water flowing from left to right looking from Texas to Mexico. The river, of course, flowing from west to east all along the Texan/Mexican border should be seen flowing from right to left. See more »

Quotes

Richard Dukes: [arriving to see McNelly digging a grave] That's a mighty nice spot for a grave there... who's it for?
Leander McNelly: [wet from the rain and out of breath] The grave?s for me. If I wait until winter, the ground will be frozen.

Young Guns, Go For It!
6 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A choppy mess! The changing of history is kinda irrelevant in films of this type, you tend to go in just wanting to be thrilled and tingled. Sadly this can do neither and can only light the fires of a youthful audience interested in the pretty stars on show. It's western genre movie making 101, MTV video style. There's no flow or reason for instances, the characterisations veer from possibly interesting to sideline dummies.

It was held back for release by the studio for two years +, and tinkered with by Jack the Ripper in the editing room, so it's hardly surprising it was a major flop and didn't even make enough money back to pay for the post party cakes. The action scenes are competently handled, but these are the rare bright spots on a dull nonsensical landscape. 3/10
