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.

Two young men: Van Der Veek and Kutcher join the recently formed Texas Ranger , being set after American Civil War 1875
5 August 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Western featuring a great main and support cast , though this sat on the self for almost two years dealing with events happened after American civil war , a decade later it ended , the prior Texas Rangers had disbanded to fight for Confederacy and the Union Army was occupying Texas , charged pmainly with defending Texas from defectors depredation and Indian attacks . Texas governor asking for help McNelly to form a company of Rangers to defeat the banditry along the Mexican frontier . Some cheerful greenhorns who volunteer to fight outlaws along the Rio Grande in 1875 Texas . As youngsters ,Jamen Van Der Berk , Usher Raymond , Jon Abrahams and Ashton Kutcher , band together and enlist the famous Texas Rangers commanded by the mysterious McNelly : McDermott. All are robbed of their families by the bad guys led by the really nasty Alfred Molina . The demanding mentor teaches them to shoot and kill at whatever mean . Then , Van Der Beek to avenge the death of his family and becoming an aide to the unit's enigmatic commandant against the rustling racketeers who continue committing daring robbery raids and bloody massacres.

This Western is not bad , but its script is derivative , plain , superficial , and simple . The picture has fun thanks to the breathtaking battles , noisy action and moving raids .There is a long passel of shootouts , assaults , attacks , hanging and slaughter , but taming the West takes a backseat to deep drama centered primarly about ailing starring's fate in this vengeance oater .Beautifully edited widescreen with impressive photography in Panavision by Daryn Okada , along with rousing musical score by Trevor Ravin .Casting is pretty good but hindered by weak screenplay and filmmaking . Acting honors go to Alfred Molina playing magnificently a sneering villain .After sitting on the self for 2 years , yella-belled studio exects denied the stale oater an advance screening , well aware of its weak appeal. This western revenge actioner was professionally directed by Steve Miner , in spite of failing at boxoffice .

Other films concerning about Texas Rangers are the followings : Texas Rangers 1936 by King Vidor with Fred McMurray , Jack Oakie ; The Texas Rangers ride again 1940 by James Hogan with Jon Howard , Broderick Crawford ; Streets of Laredo 1949 by Leslie Fenton with William Bendix , William Holden ; Texas Rangers 1951 by Phil Karlson with George Montgomery , Noah Beery , Gale Storm .
