Don’t let the movie poster fool you, Billy Bob Thornton and Eva Longoria may have the bigger spots but they definitely get outshined by the redneck brother trio known as the Oodies.
We’ve got Lincoln, McQueen and Brick.
Lincoln is the strong silent type, not by choice though. His voice box was crushed during a wrestling match. Yeah, he’s the muscle of the group.
Next up is McQueen. He’s the sensitive illiterate one in the group.
The leader of the group is Brick.
They grew up without parents pretty much and got into the killing people line of work.
The guys are hired by Eva Longoria, who plays Celeste. She catches the boys in action and decides to use them to help get her son back from Billy Bob Thornton, Celeste’s ex-husband, Carlos. The boys take the job but hit a lot of bumps in the road trying to return the boy to Celeste.
It’s one of the most action-films that will probably hit this year. The R rating doesn’t sell itself short. There are a lot of guns, drugs and killing.
I’m sure this movie won’t make a killing in the theaters but it’s definitely going to surprise a lot of people. If you love “Sons of Anarchy,” then you’ll definitely love this movie.
Michael Rapaport delivers one of the funnier cameos that I’ve seen in a very long time. Stay for the credits too, Rapaport continues his comedy.
Alongside Thornton and Longoria, Daniel Cudmore, Clayne Crawford, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Andre Braugher also star in the film. You’ll also see Zoe Bell too of “Grindhouse” fame. She plays a bad-ass chick once again in “Baytown Outlaws” and has a run in with Oodie brothers.
It’ll be out on January 11th in New York City at Cinema Village.
