The Baytown Outlaws Reviews

Drew Hunt
Slant Magazine

This schlocky piece of ultra violence plays like a pop-culture pastiche without a stable thematic foundation.

Paste Magazine

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

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.

There's probably an audience for Baytown Outlaws, but it's not one anyone might want to spend 90 minutes with in a movie theater.

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

It's a shame Battles loses his nerve in the final act, weirdly assuming viewers have developed an emotional attachment to material that works best as a cartoon.

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

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.

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

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.

Ron Wilkinson
Monsters and Critics

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.

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

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

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.

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.
