The Baytown Outlaws

Director Barry Battles’ “The Baytown Outlaws”, about three Alabama redneck brothers who head off to Texas to save a handicap teen at the behest of Latina spitfire Eva Longoria, is about two or three scenes away from being really, really awesome. As it stands, it’s really, really entertaining. Billed as a “Southern Whup-Ass Extravaganza”, the film loses its way every now and then, derailed by Battles’ (who also co-writes) need to CYA. Even so, this one is destined to become a cult classic once it hits DVD, cable, and all the usual spots, so be on the look-out when your friends start telling you that they just saw this really awesome action movie starring these three redneck brothers from Alabama. You can tell them that you already know all about it thanks to Nix at BeyondHollywood.com. You’re welcome.
