Ranger Danger

Grief meets the unexpected in this gripping tale of heartache and revelation.
5/5

Review

In Sean Cruser‘s short drama, penned and brought to life by the multi-talented Tyler Beveridge, audiences are whisked away on an expedition into the untamed wilderness. ‘Ranger Danger’ is a tale where grief and eccentricity intertwine, leaving a mark on those who dare to embark.

Beveridge’s portrayal of Alan, a man grappling with the weight of his father’s memory as he carries his ashes through the rugged landscape, is heartbreakingly poignant. His vulnerability, laid bare against the backdrop of nature’s grandeur, becomes a poignant journey of raw emotion.

Ranger Dan, portrayed with an enigmatic allure by Murphy Martin, a figure whose presence injects both warmth and intrigue into Alan’s journey. Yet, beneath Dan’s facade of compassion lies a labyrinth of hidden depths, expertly brought to life by Martin’s nuanced performance, leaving viewers to question the true motives that lie beneath.

Set during the late 70s, Cruser’s timeless allure of 35mm cinematography infuse the short with a sense of wistful nostalgia.

As the tale unfolds, the boundaries between grief and companionship begin to blur. Just when you’ve settled into the melancholic embrace of Alan’s journey, a shocking twist erupts like a bolt from the blue, catapulting you from the depths of emotion into stunned disbelief. In the wake of this seismic shift, a character you questioned is transformed, their motivation laid bare in a revelation that will leave you reeling.

In ‘Ranger Danger’ the performances are undeniable riveting, the cinematography is a feast for the eyes, and the writing hits like a thunderbolt. “Highly recommended” doesn’t even begin to capture it – this is an unmissable watch, a gripping journey through melancholy and shock that will leave you breathless.
