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.

The film is supposed to take place along the Nueces Strip, the coastal line from Nueces County to Brownsville. However, the film frequently shows hills and mountains, which are not found within 200 miles of the Nueces Strip. See more »
We have a president from Texas at an unheard of level of popularity, and a population focused on justice and the elimination of ultra-violent terrorist criminals and what does Miramax do? They take an ace in the hole movie like Texas Rangers and barely release it! The Texas Rangers is a story of a group of brave men risking their lives to rid their territory of lawless violent criminal gangs who are terrorizing law abiding citizens. This is a true story and is based on one of the first wars against terrorism in our country's history. If Miramax had taken hold of the historic background and actually promoted this film, I'm sure it would of made the top ten in box office the week it was released. Instead they release it on 400 screens! They're treating it like one of their "art" films that are usually released in off beat "art" theatres. Miramax blew it. Texas Rangers was an excellent film and reminded me of the good old westerns from the '40s and '50s with an excellent cast of young popular actors. I highly recommend this film and hope more of you are able to see it. If you can't catch it in the theatre, definitely put it on your list of videos. I will definitely purchase it when available.
