DVD & Blu-ray review: The Baytown Outlaws (15) Barry Battles (99mins)


This violent actioner opens with three redneck brothers massacring 13 heavily tattooed chaps in their Alabama home. Turns out they've slaughtered the wrong mob.

We're supposed to find this amusing. Presumably we're supposed to find this whole sub-Quentin Tarantino mind-rot very amusing. It's not. Billy Bob Thornton wastes his energy as a criminal kingpin and Eva Longoria wafts in for a flimsy cameo, but this tasteless film has little else to recommend it apart from an awful lot of energy.
