Ultimately "The Ranger" promises more than it delivers.
Wexler has interpreted her influences thoughtfully and inverted them cleverly. It's the smart kind of dumb fun.
Couldn't be more insipid.
Punk rockers are led as lambs to the slaughter in yet another homage to '80s slasher movies.
It's pretty rough around the edges, part by design and part because this is Wexler's first movie, but it's a lot of fun and the kind of horror movie you want to put on at parties.
The Ranger is equal parts carnage, survival, and punk rock. It has all the appeal of an eighties slasher flick, but it also tells a more complex story.
A dull and forgettable entry in the slasher sub-genre.
It's simply going to deliver on its promise of a punk rock slasher flick. If that sounds appealing, you're likely to not be disappointed.
This is mostly very fun, silly but satisfying.
The Ranger follows the rules of the slasher film perfectly, but one wishes it had imbued them with more life.
Blending a playful Eighties vibe with a distinctly modern sensibility, it takes on themes much darker than mere murder yet never loses its spirit.
The real star of the show is [director] Jenn Wexler. While the script she co-wrote with Giaco Furino has believability issues, the film's overall tone is ambitious.
