DVD Review: THE BAYTOWN OUTLAWS

PrintE-mail Written by Jonathan Anderson

Review: The Baytown Outlaws / Cert: 15 / Director: Barry Battles / Screenplay: Barry Battles, Griffin Hood / Starring: Clayne Crawford, Daniel Cudmore, Travis Fimmel, Eva Longoria, Billy Bob Thornton, Paul Wesley, Andre Braugher / Release Date: December 26th 2012

The Baytown Outlaws are three redneck brothers (Crawford, Cudmore, Fimmel) making a living as guns for hire.

One day, after killing someone at the wrong address, they are approached by a beautiful witness (Eva Longoria) who offers them $25,000 to get her godson back from her psycho ex (Billy Bob Thornton). Of course the job is not quite as simple as it seems and they end up fighting gangs of biker chicks and Native Americans while trying to outrun the law. In the meantime a CIA agent (Wesley) turns up in their home town questioning the sheriff (Braugher) on why there are so many violent crimes going unresolved.

The film is an enjoyable shoot-'em-up romp through the Deep South of America. It’s not meant to be taken too seriously and has a decent cast, a couple of whom ham it up but not to the point of over-acting. Despite the relatively modest budget of $4million, there are some good action sequences complemented by fast editing and a great soundtrack.

Despite this, the film does not last long in the memory and there are a couple of cliché’s, but it’s worth a watch nonetheless and will please fans who like Tarantino or The Boondock Saints.
