The Baytown Outlaws
After her ex-husband Carlos (Billy Bob Thornton) shoots Celeste (Eva Longoria) 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 royale. 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. -- (C) Phase 4

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is an ugly film. And the only thing uglier is thinking about who on earth the filmmakers thought they were making it for."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"If it has the right spit-in-your-face attitude, it has neither the stamina nor the wit to go the distance, although it makes it about two-thirds of the way."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"I kind of f*****g loved it, all things considered."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"There's nothing wrong with tipping one's cap to one's influences, but in no case does this loud, crude and derivative film ever raise the bar. In fact, it actually lowers it."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"Style trumps substance in this ultraviolent revenge thriller."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"[Contains] tin-earned dialogue and haphazard plotting ..."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Although artistically slight and thematically haphazard, it's enjoyably flashy."
‑ Mark Jenkins, NPR
"While stipulating that at its core it's fairly slight, and also constructed of prefabricated parts, this is a deeply but pleasantly weird sort of Southern Gothic battle royale."
‑ Brent Simon,
"A little too slick to be the next great action film and not funny enough to be dark comedy, this over produced bullet fest barely keeps going for its 98 minutes."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
"This ode to Tarantino, 'Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!,' and Jerry Lewis marathons is deliriously silly, frenetically violent, and insanely entertaining, especially for those who prefer 'Mad Max' over 'The Rules of the Game.'"
‑ Brandon Judell, CultureCatch
"A boisterously Tarantinoesque mash-up of cliches, archetypes and bodacious craziness in the tradition of Southern-fried '60s and '70s drive-in fodder."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"Director Barry Battles seems to believe his three grubby main characters are more charming than they are."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Filmmakers who want to out-Tarantino writer-director Quentin Tarantino had best back off."
‑ John Wirt, Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
"Action flick has high body count, big guns, little point."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"The performances are solid, but more often than not it feels like the characters are all acting, shooting and stabbing in a vacuum."
‑ Dan Kaufman, Paste Magazine
