3.0 out of 5 stars Distorting Texas Rangers History July 7, 2005
Format:DVD
I've read quite a few books lately about the Texas Rangers, including 'Taming the Nueces Strip' by George Durham, on which this film is supposedly based, and 'Texas Ranger' by N A Jennings, on whom the character of Lincoln Rogers Dunnison is obviously based. Jennings' book, as he himself admitted, is not wholly truthful, yet his character (Dunnison) is made the hero of the film, while Durham's character (given his real name) is a foil to Dunnison. Jennings lasted two years in the Rangers before going back east and never rose above private (and secretary to McNelly), while Durham lasted a whole lot longer and fought alongside McNelly with distinction. Yet in the movie Durham is made to look an excitable idiot, while Dunnison becomes a Ranger captain. Why the scriptwriters should have chosen to do this is a mystery.

Dylan McDermott as Captain Leander McNelly gives a very good performance, as does Robert Patrick as Sergeant John Armstrong (who captured John Wesley Hardin in later years). Alfred Molina's performance as a grinning King Fisher is neither menacing or cruel - just inept. The real King Fisher was confronted by McNelly but always escaped justice at the time.

The young McNelly made his reputation as a leader in the Civil War and further enhanced his reputation as a Ranger captain in the Nueces Strip. He once led a daring (and illegal) raid into Mexico to retrieve stolen Texas cattle from bandits but his men were never massacred by bandits, despite a few close shaves in Mexico.

Jesus Sandoval was a vengeful sadist, whose wife had been killed by Mexican bandits, but this character hardly figured in the movie (his gruesome exploits could not have been shown anyway).

3.0 out of 5 stars Misses the Bullet December 13, 2001
In the after-effects of the Civil War, Texas is a sleeping giant falling prey to vicious marauding and theft by Mexican invaders. The Rangers were disbanded to fight for the South; now they are to be regrouped, with a former pastor-turned-lawman, Leander McNelly (Dylan McDermott), in he lead. Persuaded by the government to undertake the training and leadership of thirty rag-taggled, half-bit schoolboy-turned-lawmen, McNelly finds himself at odds not only with his own priorities and shaken faith, but his inability in leadership.
One member of this poor crop of unshaven boys is Dunnison (James Van Der Beek), whose family was slaughtered by the Mexicans. Due to his writing talents, he is chosen as McNelly's personal aid and undertakes documenting all of the reports to Washington.
With very little time for training, the Rangers saddle up and ride off to meet their fates. But prejudice, poor shooting skills and mistakes are the least of McNelly's problems. There is also a traitor among them... a character who will turncoat... and a violent climax in Mexico.
Texas Rangers (PG13) has a good heart and could have been a great film. It's been a long time since there's been a truly excellent western on the market -- not since Jimmy Stewart donned his white hat and rode into the west. Sadly, this one will not fill the void. The fact that the film was not pre-released for the press is a dead giveaway that something is lacking. The acting is excellent -- pity the scriptwriters didn't give Dylan McDermott and Rachael Leigh Cook more to work with. The soundtrack is gorgeous -- will it be released? Probably not, considering the big-screen failure of the film.

Texas Rangers has everything you want in a movie- great characters, great scenery, and lots of action.

The story is riveting, and the acting superb.

A modern day western.

3.0 out of 5 stars How the West Was...Politely Tamed September 8, 2004
By C-N-G
Format:DVD
Texas Rangers is not as bad as you've heard. Sure, the timeline is a little wonky (think of this as McNelly's greatest hits) and takes some liberty with the history (namely McNelly's family life and his relationship with King), but those are pretty small flaws. The action scenes are well put together, more Young Guns 2 than Young Guns, and the acting is adequate--Ashton Kutcher and Usher being in it and all.

It's a decent movie, and if you like Texas History I believe you'll enjoy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Texas Rangers January 21, 2013
By Denis
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Would have been nice to have subtitles. I like the movie. However, I have older movies that have been prepared with more features than this. My rating is based more on the disc preparation than the movies itself.

It's an okay movie. It looked a little like it might have been made for tv. There's nothing bad in it, which was a nice change from so many other Hollywood movies.
