The Baytown Outlaws kicks major ass!
Synopsis: After herex-husband shoots Celeste three times in the gut and kidnaps her godson, it’s time to play dirty. She hires three outlawed, redneck brothers to bring him back to her. What begins as a small rescue mission rises to a Southern battle royale.
I stumbled upon this film after checking out what films Travis Fimmel was involved in lately. He is set to star in the History channel’s Vikings next month, which I am excited about. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Clane Crawford (who I still remember from Swimfan and who was amazing in 2010’s “The Perfect Host,” was also in it. The star studded cast also includes Eva Longoria Parker and Billy Bob Thornton. Interestingly enough they have the weakest and most forgettable roles and don’t take precedence away from the three outlaw characters (Travis, Clayne and Daniel Cudmore). Not sure why this movie wasn’t a major hit (did it even play at the theaters?) because it had everything you could want for a promising blockbuster with all the action, comedy and storyline behind it.
It has just the right amount of character development, fun quirky characters on both sides, and doesn’t take itself to seriously. The outlaw brothers have a lot of heart despite their circumstances and life of crime. A really fun and funny action movie where people don’t just shoot each other or blow stuff up the whole time. Unwind and enjoy this great film.
(You also get these two beefcakes.)
Sure they played bad guys who wore the same (I’m sure sweaty) shirt for whole show, but they were hot.
If Paul Wesley (The Vampire Diaries) is more your speed, you will also get him playing a prick and swearing…
The Baytown Outlaws certainly is a film that a lot of movie fanatics should check out!
