When I first saw the trailer for "Mud" a couple months ago in front of "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" I was extremely looking forward to it and I'm glad to say that it was as great as I wanted it to be. "Mud" is almost everything you'd (at least me) would want a movie to be. It's entertaining, thrilling, funny, and engaging! The story is great, and the script is very thrilling, funny, and engaging! And the performances are great! Tye Sheredian is great in the lead role as Ellis and the way he delivers his dialogue and facial expressions is great! Jacob Lofland is also really funny as Neckbone and provides a lot of great comic relief! Matthew McConaughey is also great as Mud and is probably the best performance I've seen from him. There's also a lot of really good supporting roles including Sam Shephard and Reese Witherspoon. Also, Michael Shannon gives a really funny supporting role as Neckbone's womanizing Uncle. With that said, all of these cast members do great in a lot of great and effective moments and after you see the movie, they really stick with you. I'm not gonna spoil any of them though. Overall, I think this is a really great film and definitely my 2nd favorite film of the year so far (#1 is "Iron Man 3") and if it's playing in a theater near you, I recommend you go see it!
