  • Texas Rangers Smirks, Sputters
    Movies Texas Rangers - PG-13 Best for: Mature teens and adults who enjoy old-fashioned Westerns. What it’s about: The year is 1875, and Texas is a land without justice, vulnerable to renegade outlaws who pillage towns, murder the townspeople and steal cattle. A small group of Texas rangers (James Van Der Beek, Ashton Kutcher, Usher Raymond), led by Leander McNelly (Dylan McDermott), protect and defend the people against the ruthless John King Fisher (Alfred Molina). After a surprise ambush that almost wipes out the rangers, the men regroup at the estate of Leander's friend, Richard Dukes (Tom Skerritt), and his daughter Caroline (Rachel Leigh Cook), where they relearn how to fight. Robert Patrick and Randy Travis also star. The good: Having grown up watching “B” Westerns most of my life, I enjoyed this different telling of how the Texas rangers began. McDermott is an accomplished actor who does a good job with the script, but the other actors aren’t as well utilized. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-1'); }); The story has some touching moments, humorous situations and historical tragedy, and McNelly’s belief in God influences the other men. The not-so-good: Van Der Beek lacks the ability to transcend the smirking preppy he plays on Dawson’s Creek and make us believe he’s a ranger. Since this is story about fighting outlaws, there’s an abundance of people being killed with knives, guns and explosives. Several men (and one woman) are shown hanging by ropes. The majority of the battles are blood-free, but the violence is intense and realistic. Offensive language: Mild profanity including the “N”-word, other expletives, a couple of religious profanities, and some sexual innuendo. Sexual situations: No sexual stations are shown, but some dialogue refers to womanizing. Two men are shown sitting in a bathtub (no nudity is shown). Violence: Western-style gun violence, hanging and war violence that leads to loss friends and entire families. Yet with all of the killing that takes place, there is little grieving depicted. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-2'); }); if (gptClientWidth >= 992 && gptClientWidth <= 1000000) googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-3'); }); Parental advisory: The "PG-13" rating is due to the violence and language, but if you have teens interested in a bit of history about the Texas rangers (and in seeing TV star Van Der Beek), it at least has positive role models and redemptive themes. ]]>

  • Texas Rangers
    Movies from Film Forum, 12/06/01In the mood for a Western? Even though Texas Rangers stars James Van Der Beek of TV's Dawson's Creek, thestudio kept it hidden from critics until opening day, usually a sign of anticipating bad reviews. Sure enough, the movie was trampled by a herd of disgruntled critics as soon as it opened.Critics in the religious media were, for the most part, unsatisfied. "It's too bad Texas Rangers fails to live up to the enormous potential found in its noble themes," says Lindy Beam (Focus on the Family). "Recent events have underscored the need to discern the difference between revenge and justice. This film could have been a timely discussion starter on this subject. Except that it's so … mediocre."The USCC's review calls it terrible: "In between the many hangings, foolish dialogue and muddled machinations of the rambling plot, director Steve Miner feebly squeezes in the message that might does not make right." googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-1'); }); John Adair (Preview) argues that without the foul language, Texas Rangers would be acceptable. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-2'); }); if (gptClientWidth >= 992 && gptClientWidth <= 1000000) googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-3'); }); Douglas Downs (Christian Spotlight on the Movies) strongly recommends the film. "Director Steve Miner shows expert direction and vision," he writes, arguing that "the film is much better than Out Cold and Black Knight. There is practically no sex and almost no profanity." ]]>

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
