What You Need To Know:

ONE RANGER is a thriller in limited release about a Texas ranger who teams up with a female British agent to track down and stop a terrorist. Texas Ranger Alex Tyree tries to bring in Declan McBride, the leader of a local bank robbery who’s also a former IRA member. However, McBride’s men rescue McBride, killing Tyree’s younger partner in the process. Tyree’s one of the few people who’s met McBride. So, his boss loans Tyree to British Intelligence to help them track down McBride and stop a major terrorist attack against London.

ONE RANGER is a solid B thriller with lots of action. Thomas Jane is very good as the Texas Ranger. The story involves stopping a terrorist and bringing him to justice. So, the movie has a strong moral, patriotic worldview with many positive nods to law enforcement, including the Texas Rangers. However, there are several brutal fistfights and many gunfights with point blank shootings. ONE RANGER also has nearly 40 “f” words and an explicit scene where the villain visits an old girlfriend. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises excessive.

More Detail:

ONE RANGER is a thriller in limited release about a Texas ranger who teams up with a British agent to track down and stop a terrorist who murdered the Ranger’s partner and is planning a major attack on London. ONE RANGER is a solid B thriller with a strong moral, patriotic worldview, but there’s lots of intense, heavy violence, strong foul language and an explicit scene where the villain visits his old girlfriend’s bedroom.

The movie opens with Texas Ranger Alex Tyree tracking and arresting an American Indian accused of stealing a horse and fancy rifle. Tyree gets a call about a group of four bank robbers who killed a security guard and are headed his way in an off-road vehicle. Sure enough, their vehicle comes speeding toward him. He takes the stolen rifle and starts firing at the vehicle, hitting the driver. The other three men try to take off. Tyree takes down two of them and captures the leader.

The leader happens to be a former IRA member named Declan McBride. Tyree and his young partner, Ranger Daniels, start to ferry McBride to jail back in town. However, they’re ambushed by other compatriots of McBride, who kill Daniels. Tyree survives, and McBride and a surviving thug, who happens to be McBride’s right-hand guy, run off when sirens announce more police are coming.

Back in town, Tyree is introduced to Smith, a female British agent who’s been tracking down McBride. British Intelligence thinks McBride is planning a major terrorist attack against London. Since Tyree is one of the few officers who’s ever spoken to McBride, Tyree’s boss loans out Tyree to help Smith and the British track down and stop McBride.

ONE RANGER is a solid B thriller with lots of action. Thomas Jane is very good as the Texas Ranger. The story involves stopping a terrorist and bringing him to justice. So, the movie has a strong moral, patriotic worldview with many nods to the courage and honor of law enforcement, including the Texas Rangers. However, there are several brutal fistfights and many gunfights with point blank shootings. ONE RANGER also has nearly 40 “f” words and an explicit scene where the villain visits an old girlfriend. So, MOVIEGUIDE® finds the movie excessive.
