Three young men in the waterlands of coastal South Carolina rob a backwoods juke joint and flee up the coast to Myrtle Beach, armed with psychedelics, their souped-up Cutlass and a thirst for adventure. But for one of the three, this journey is a quest for strength and courage in the face of a painful past
(Rectify, Leverage, 24, A Walk to Remember)
Laid-back, good-looking. Down-to-earth with natural good humor. Jeans and sweater is dressing up. He’s been through hard times, but has found a way to grow from the past. This is what Joseph needs to emulate. His is the key voice of the film, articulating its themes and creating reference points in Joseph’s transformation.
There is a video about Clayne’s character – (sorry, I can’t embed it or download it) – Meet Teddy Jr. from Rectify
Instead of warmly welcoming Daniel home, Ted Jr. feels this turn of events leaves him with everything to lose. He is most worried about the family tire business. By rights it belongs to Daniel, but Ted Jr. knows this would destroy what he and his dad have labored to restore. Insecure and manipulative, Ted Jr. will go to great lengths to hold on to his livelihood – even if Daniel’s freedom is at stake.

SPOILERS for the movie! HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIRSTIE! Sorry this is a little late.
Like a redneck puppy with an automatic weapon, Barry Battles’s The Baytown Outlaws just wants to be loved—and shoot up a bunch of stuff at the same time. You could say that the film demands that you leave your critical eye at the door, but it’s closer to the truth to say that it’s just going to do what it wants, and you can either enjoy yourself or just leave the theater. Except, to paraphrase Sally Field, it also not-so-secretly does want you to like it, to really, really like it.
The film begins as the three Oodie Brothers (Clayne Crawford, Travis Fimmel, and Daniel Cudmore), a trigger-happy trio of hit men, force their way into a gangbanger hideout looking to retrieve a fugitive. They wind up killing everyone in sight. After seeing the boys get away without a scratch or the slightest sniff from the local police, Celeste (Eva Longoria) recruits them to rescue her teenage godson, Rob (Thomas Brodie Sangster), from her estranged psychopath ex-husband, Carlos (Billy Bob Thornton).
And then the fun begins. With the sheriff (Andre Breughel) unhappily being pushed by an eager DEA agent (Paul Wesley) to stay on their trail, the Oodie Brothers make an assault on Carlos’s compound, grab Rob (whom they discover is wheelchair-bound with cerebral palsy), and head out of town. Carlos survives the attack, however, and sends out teams of assassins to intercept the Oodies and take Rob back. A band of lethal whores, some African-American road pirates (complete with an armored tank-car), and some tree-climbing Native American snipers all stand in the way of the Oodies and Rob making it alive to Celeste.
The Oodies—half-cocked mastermind big brother Brick (Crawford), mute physical giant Lincoln (Cudmore), and comical idiot little brother G.I. McQueen (Fimmel)—bond quickly with Rob while on the run. Despite their Klan heritage, courtesy of their outlaw daddy, and subsequent rougher-than-rough orphaned upbringing, these guys have heart. The kid isn’t just a paycheck—they’ve more or less adopted him. And as the infuriated Carlos keeps raising the stakes, the Oodies keep thwarting the killers he sends their way.
Battles and co-screenwriter Griffin Hood throw violence, bloodshed, and cornball jokes at the screen with equally rapid-fire delivery. While their efforts to infuse the story with “heart” are handled with the same amount of nuance and care—which is to say, none at all—Baytown Outlaws maintains its raggedy puppy-dog charm. Thornton chews the scenery and spits it out just as you’d hope he would in a movie like this, and Crawford, Cudmore, and Fimmel have the right chemistry as the renegade brothers.
The degree to which you laugh or wince will depend on your taste for this type of shenanigan-filled entertainment. Even if Roger Corman doesn’t hold a hallowed place in your film universe and you would rather eat nails than see the South rise again, you will likely still have your share of giddy moments watching The Baytown Outlaws, better judgment be damned.

Don’t let the movie poster fool you, Billy Bob Thornton and Eva Longoria may have the bigger spots but they definitely get outshined by the redneck brother trio known as the Oodies.
We’ve got Lincoln, McQueen and Brick.
Lincoln is the strong silent type, not by choice though. His voice box was crushed during a wrestling match. Yeah, he’s the muscle of the group.
Next up is McQueen. He’s the sensitive illiterate one in the group.
The leader of the group is Brick.
They grew up without parents pretty much and got into the killing people line of work.
The guys are hired by Eva Longoria, who plays Celeste. She catches the boys in action and decides to use them to help get her son back from Billy Bob Thornton, Celeste’s ex-husband, Carlos. The boys take the job but hit a lot of bumps in the road trying to return the boy to Celeste.
It’s one of the most action-films that will probably hit this year. The R rating doesn’t sell itself short. There are a lot of guns, drugs and killing.
I’m sure this movie won’t make a killing in the theaters but it’s definitely going to surprise a lot of people. If you love “Sons of Anarchy,” then you’ll definitely love this movie.
Michael Rapaport delivers one of the funnier cameos that I’ve seen in a very long time. Stay for the credits too, Rapaport continues his comedy.
Alongside Thornton and Longoria, Daniel Cudmore, Clayne Crawford, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Andre Braugher also star in the film. You’ll also see Zoe Bell too of “Grindhouse” fame. She plays a bad-ass chick once again in “Baytown Outlaws” and has a run in with Oodie brothers.
It’ll be out on January 11th in New York City at Cinema Village.
