Last night we rented Baytown Outlaws, a movie that neither of us had really heard of. After our debacle with Killer Joe the other night, we figured it couldn’t be any worse!
Director: Barry Battles
Stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Paul Wesley, and Zoe Bell
Runtime: 1 hour, 38 minutes
Plot Summary (from IMDb): After her ex-husband Carlos shoots Celeste three times in the gut, it’s time to play dirty. In the fight for her godson, Rob, she hires three outlawed and redneck brothers to bring him back to her. But nothing can be that simple in the South. What begins as a small rescue mission rises to a southern battle royal. This odd team must shoot their way through gorgeous female assassins, Native American hunters, Federal agents, and a whole lot of metal coming after them, while protecting Celeste’s innocent child.
Rating: On Demand.
I actually thought this movie was pretty good. It had equal parts of shoot-em-up and comedy, which made it appealing to both Mike and I. As always, Billy Bob Thornton plays a hilarious role and the three brothers (I haven’t heard of any of them) were perfectly cast. This is a good, entertaining movie!
- Theater: This means the movie is awesome. Go see this movie in the theater – well worth the $100 you’ll spend for a night out to see it on the big screen!
- On Demand: Since no one actually rents movies anymore, this category has changed to On Demand. This means it’s a great movie, but it is as good at home as it is in the theater and worth seeing a little sooner.
- TV: This means the movie is ok. Wait for it to show up on HBO and see it for free.
- Skip It: Movie sucks, don’t waste your time.
