    Synopsis


    Mud
    A pair of inquisitive adolescents encounter a charismatic drifter with an incredible story in this drama from Take Shelter writer/director Jeff Nichols. Mississippi adolescents Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and Neckbone (Jacob Lofland) are exploring along the mighty Mississippi when they stumble upon a small island inhabited by Mud (Matthew McConaughey), a desperado who claims to be on the run from brutal bounty hunters after killing a man in Texas. According to Mud, his true love Juniper (Reese Witherspoon) is awaiting his arrival in town, and together they plan to make a daring escape. Fascinated, the two boys agree to help Mud slip past his pursuers, despite the potential dangers of doing so. Sam Shepard, Sarah Paulson, and Michael Shannon co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      An early contender in the McConaughasance

      Mud, along with True Detective S1 and Dallas Buyer's Club of course, somewhat serve as the trifecta of McConaughey's rise in stardom, perhaps capped off most recently with Interstellar. While I've little doubt he's continue to impress, these pieces have all be released/aired close enough together to serve as an easily understandable justification as to why he is such a great contemporary actor. Nichol's direction in this film again captures the unique life and personality of small town living, and perhaps even more so as told through the eyes of the film's adolescent lead.

      Surprisingly Engaging Film

      I was surprised how much I enjoyed this movie. The movie does not offer the stark good vs. evil characters common in movies today. All of the characters were flawed. I could identify with all of the characters, but I would not want any of them as my friends. This is old style story telling; a slow build up to a climax and resolution; not jumping from one climax to the next. The characters kept my attention until the end and the film was more entertaining than I anticipated.

      Did Not Live Up to the Hype

      Before I watched or bought this movie, I was told by numerous people that the movie was a GREAT movie and a MUST SEE. As a result, I watched the movie with high expectations. The movie started out great, I thought the story/plot was great and the acting was great as well. What prevents this movie from being great, however, is the ending. After 2 hours, the writers seemed to forget that the movie had to end and seemed to just rush an ending. As a result, the ending was not satisfying... the writers could have and should have written a better ending.

      Two boys, Ellis and his friend Neckbone, find a man named Mud hiding out on an island in the Mississippi. Mud describes fantastic scenarios—he killed a man in Texas and vengeful bounty hunters are coming to get him. He says he is planning to meet and escape with the love of his life, Juniper, who is waiting for him in town. Skeptical but intrigued, Ellis and Neckbone agree to help him. It isn’t long until Mud’s visions come true and their small town is besieged by a beautiful girl with a line of bounty hunters in tow.

      McConaughey delivers

      I know Matthew McConaughey has been in quite the range of movies, but it is in this one that you know he is about to go on a mean streak. Right before he won the Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club, he is that calm and cool type who is overall mysterious. As the movie unfolds I found myself more intrigued by his character, I sympathized and even empathized. On blu-ray it is no spectacle, but I'm always a fan of HD and the price was pretty great via Best Buy. See this is if you like McConaughey.

      An original, compelling and well-done southern drama. Director, Jeff Nichols film is mesmerizing, it as great characters and is very thrilling. It's nice to see a film that delivers not what you were expecting but what you were hoping. Matthew McConaughey gives an outstanding and strong performance. One of his best performances ever. McConaughey and his young co-stars Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland have wonderful chemistry together

      My review is based on others review as I bought this movie but still haven't watched it. I suggested it to my brother and he said it sucked but he's kinda weird so I don't trust him. Lol enjoy your movie, have some popcorn while you watch it. Kettle corn is my favorite but nothing beats the stuff you buy at fairs! Buy this movie, buy everything from best buy so that you get rewards and buy more, until your broke. Then charge it! Lol

      When I read the review on the back saying it was a new american classic I was a little turned off. After watching the movie I have to say i fully agree. Matty Mcconaughey Kills it. Such a great job from him. The kids were awesome. The lead boy goes from "Tree of life" to this, unbelievable. The feel of a modern day Romeo and Juliet, with kids and innocence getting involved in the story. I'll stop talking. Just watch it.
