Movie Review Monday

The Baytown Outlaws (2012)

It was one of those weekends where the spouse and I had no idea what we wanted to watch, so we went through the list to see what we could find.  We watched one trailer, but the movie didn't look interesting, so we watched a preview for this film.  The trailer looked pretty good, so we gave it a shot.

It was a crazy roller coaster ride of a movie with lots of eye candy, guns, fights, and explosions.  Seriously, I didn't think dirty, sweaty Southern boys could look that good, but I was impressed.  There were moments of humor.  It slowed down a little in the middle and got kind of boring, but it picked up by the end. 

The basic story is that Celeste hires the Oodie brothers to kidnap her godson from her ruthless ex-husband, who happens to be a drug dealer and all-around mean guy.  As you can imagine, the ex-husband doesn't want to let the kid go, so he sends his minions after the brothers to get him back.  Fights occur and blood is shed in over-the-top fashion.

If you're looking for a pretty mindless yet entertaining film and don't mind some blood, I definitely recommend checking this movie out.  It was a wild ride!
