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.Written by
The film was in development for many, many years. In its earliest stages, it was planned as a directorial project for Sam Peckinpah. See more »
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 »
Who do you blame for a movie like this? When you watch a movie you can easily blame an actor for not putting in a good performance, a writer for a flawed script, or a director for not getting the right job out of an actor, or a casting director for a miss-cast. In this movie you can blame all of them, but, the bulk of the blame goes to one certain group: the producers.
Alan Greisman and Frank Price must step up and take most of the blame for what is wrong with this film. This was a get-rich quick scheme that got what it deserved. When you set out to make a movie only for the money, and not for the movie, and there is no heart in it from the producers, this is what happens. There must be an undying passion from a film maker for it to show up in the final product on the screen. Here it just didn't happen. No heart in no heart out.
Money talks and bullshit walks, and if you look at the following numbers, you can figure out which one this film is:
Production Budget: $38,000,000
Total US Gross: $623,374
