Matthew McConaughey's best work since Lone Star. The two boys, Jacob Lofland as "Neckbone" and especially Tye Sheridan as Ellis are fantastic. Michael Shannon is great in a small role. In fact, I can't think of a single actor not in top form, including Reese Witherspoon who is better here in a supporting role than she was as the Oscar winning female lead in Walk the Line. Great story beautifully told. See it!

I see a ton of movies and, in all honesty, this is the best I've seen in the last 10 years. Hands down. I won't tell you anything else. Just please see it.

I expected better from this cast and screenplay.Matthew McConnaughey was good as the character "Mud".Here he is living on this boat in the middle of nowhere with no food.He can't go into the town.Yet he always has a fresh pack of smokes.Reese Witherspoon who is supposed to be a main character has about 10 lines.The relationship between the two is not clear till the second half of the movie.The two boys that befriend Mud give some credibility to the story.Sam Shepard was good .Mud is not a good guy .There are bounty hunters the want to kill him rather than bringing him to justice.Wait till this movie comes on Video.

This was a good movie a little slow paced at times. I enjoyed the acting and it doesn't matter how rough looking they try and make Matthew McConaughey look he is still FINE!!!!

A really good movie with a story that you can totally believe. A now a day Tom Sawyer tale.
It's refreshing to see that Hollywood still can make a great thriller with comedy and heart. The characters are perfectly cast.
Bring you boys...great movie
