There’s something to be said about a movie that calls itself “a southern whip-ass extravaganza.”
I’m not quite sure what that something is.
Below is one of those not-quite-official trailers (it’s actually a sales trailer) for The Baytown Disco, a film that does not appear to have either discos or bays. There is, I believe, a town. In any event, it’s about a trio of psycho redneck hitmen (Clayne Crawford, Travis Fimmel, Daniel Cudmore) who are hired by Eva Longoria to retrieve her godson from the nefarious Billy Bob Thonrton. There are also stripper assassins and a group of dangerous looking Negroes, but don’t be alarmed.
The whole thing feels like Smokin’ Aces took the early Guy Ritchie films out back behind a Waffle House for some slap and tickle, and I admit, it kind of works. There’s a few other interesting players in the cast — Michael Rappaport, the always fucking awesome Zoe Bell, Andre Braugher and Agnes Bruckner. Oddly, the three leads are mostly unknown — Daniel Cudmore is probably best known for being underused as Colossus in the second and third (spits on ground) X-Men movies.
Regardless, it could be something wickedly, nastily fun. Or it could be fucking stupid. Like most things, I guess. Shut up and watch the damn trailer.
