I kind of f*****g loved it, all things considered.

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.

Filmmakers who want to out-Tarantino writer-director Quentin Tarantino had best back off.

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.

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.

Action flick has high body count, big guns, little point.

Style trumps substance in this ultraviolent revenge thriller.

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.'

The performances are solid, but more often than not it feels like the characters are all acting, shooting and stabbing in a vacuum.

This is an ugly film. And the only thing uglier is thinking about who on earth the filmmakers thought they were making it for.

[Contains] tin-earned dialogue and haphazard plotting ...

A boisterously Tarantinoesque mash-up of cliches, archetypes and bodacious craziness in the tradition of Southern-fried '60s and '70s drive-in fodder.

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.

Although artistically slight and thematically haphazard, it's enjoyably flashy.

Director Barry Battles seems to believe his three grubby main characters are more charming than they are.

A movie that some moviegoers can justify as a guilty pleasure. I'll certainly admit to being embarrassed at just how entertained I was.

It's unclear what drew the likes of Billy Bob Thornton, Eva Longoria and Andre Braugher to this tepid grindhouse retread, but at least they liven up the proceedings whenever they're onscreen. Unfortunately, that's not all that often.

In all seriousness, I'm not sure whether to recommend "The Baytown Outlaws" as a guns 'n' glory time-waster or warn you off it as a piece of mendacious trash. So I'll do both.

For those who like their cinematic rides fast, furious and unencumbered by too much brain matter, this would-be Tarantino-esque redneck piece of rowdiness may entertain.

A barrage of unbelievable stereotypes try to kill each other in Barry Battles's dispiriting exploitation flick.
