Editorial Reviews

MUD is a timeless adventure about two boys, Ellis and his best friend Neckbone, who find a mysterious man named Mud (McConaughey) hiding out on a deserted island in the Mississippi. Mud tells the boys fantastic stories about his life, including how he killed a man in Texas and that vengeful bounty hunters are coming to get him. He says he is planning to meet and escape with the love of his life, Juniper (Witherspoon), who is waiting for him in town. Skeptical but intrigued, Ellis and Neckbone agree to help him. But it isn't long until Mud's tall tales come to life, and their small town is besieged by bounty hunters out for blood.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Mud" could've been called "Ellis" May 4, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
"Mud" (2012 release; 130 min.) is the newest film from writer-director Jeff Nichols, who just last year brought us the excellent "Take Shelter" thriller (starring Jessica Chastain). As the movie opens, we get to know two young boys, 14 yr. old Ellis (played by Tye Sheridan) and his best friend Neckbone (played by Jacob Lofland), in a small boat on the Mississippi river, on their way to an island where they have found something incredible: a boat that somehow ended up high in a tree. The boys think the boat is abandoned and want to make it their playground, only to find out that someone is living in the boat: Mud (played by Matthew McConaughey). Mud is a refuge of the law for killing a man who got involved with Mud's on-again, off-again girlfriend Juniper (played by Reese Witherspoon). Mud gains the trust of the boys and convinces them to assist him in getting the boat lowered from the tree. We also get to know Ellis' family, as his mom and dad are going through tough times and are contemplating divorcing. This frightens Ellis as it may lead to having to move away from his beloved house on the river. At this point we are not even half-way through the movie. Is Mud really who he claims to be? Will the boat be lowered from the tree? Do Mud and Juniper find true love? Will Ellis find a way to save his house on the river? To tell you more would ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: this movie feels like a tour-de-force from Jeff Nichols. Even though "Take Shelter" was itself quite good, "Mud" feels like a quantum leap forward, both in the writing and the directing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-written, well-acted and very well directed! May 3, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
MUD may be the best movie of 2013 through the end of April. I was thoroughly entertained and captivated from the opening moments until the final shot. The movie is so well crafted and acted. It grapples with resonant themes. This is a small movie that never feels small. It's as gripping as any blockbuster thriller...yet is told on a small, personal level.

It all starts with a great script by director Jeff Nichols (who also did the outstanding, but leisurely paced TAKE SHELTER). Nichols is telling a coming-of-age story...and that's about as worn-out an idea as you can think of. Yet even as portions of it feel as familiar as a Mark Twain novel...it's also never less than fresh and invigorating. Nichols has packed his script full of serious themes, yet he never forgets to tell a good story.

The story is set in Eastern Arkansas, right along the banks of the Mississippi. In fact, our hero is Ellis, lives in a houseboat right on the water. His parents (Sarah Paulson & Ray McKinnon) having a crumbling marriage, and Ellis is feeling uncertain about his place in the world and is worried about the seeming transience of love. (And the livelihood his dad makes along the river is also endangered; and tied directly to the failing relationship of his parents.)

One early morning, Ellis and his friend Neckbone (yep, that's the name) take a boat out to an island in the middle of the river. They've heard that there's large boat STUCK UP A TREE. The boat is there, and there's another surprise too. Someone is living in it! The boys meet Mud (Matthew McConaughey), the man on the boat. He's hiding out on this island, waiting to meet up with his girlfriend Juniper (Reese Witherspoon) and avoiding the men who are trying to track him down and kill him.

4.0 out of 5 stars ****1/2 May 28, 2013
Format:DVD
Genre-wise I would say "Mud" is best described as a coming of age drama thriller. Matthew McConaughey sporting the most terrifying prosthetic dentures in film history outside of the horror genre, stars as the title character Mud. As good as he is in his role and as good as the other adult actors are, the film ultimately belongs to the young teen actors Tye Sheriden (The Tree of Life) and Jacob Lofland (film debut). I actually would love to see these boys get noticed come Oscar season but that isn't likely to happen.

Film Breakdown
After a flood in a small Arkansas town, two teenage boys discover a boat lodged in a tree in a wooded area near the river. They quickly discover that someone resides in the boat's cabin area. The boys soon find out that it is Mud living in the boat and that he is hiding out for reasons I won't say in this review. In no time road blocks are set up to try and find Mud, one of the boys lets Mud know of this development and that is when Mud realizes he must flee by river. There is more to all this involving the Reese Witherspoon character whom is staying in a near by motel and supposed to be joining Mud in this escape plan. Amongst all this our two teens learn some valuable lessons about life and love.

The film is just over 2 hours and also stars Sam Shepard, Sarah Paulson, Ray McKinnon and Michael Shannon which I thought would've been great as the bad guy here but Shannon is playing a lot of bad guys lately with "The Iceman", "Man of Steel" and "Premium Rush" that is was also nice to see him play a regular guy and even provide some of the films comic relief.

Overall highly recommended to all audiences! The film has mild language and gun violence, no sex or nudity. I would approve the film for 10 years and up.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring
Very slow movie and depressing. I think Mathew Mcconaughey did a good acting but the movie was still to evolve. I prefer a more dynamic, action oriented theme.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice surprise
Great actors and a storyline that draws you in. The end is not the most interesting ever, but that's not a reason to miss the movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
This show appeared to have the theme of disfunction in Southern families and had few redeeming qualities. It was a negative reprisal of the Tom Sawyer story. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Great actor makes character believable
Matthew McConaughey became his character as usual, and the other actors gave strong performances. Not an appropriate movie for children.

Oops
Yep, that is often the case. I buy lots of blu-rays, including "former rentals" and that's often the downside, which I need to weigh. If I like a movie enough to want the extras too, I have to pony up for buying on Amazon.
