Movie Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

I checked out AIN'T THEM BODIE SAINTS last night...with MY very own bowl of popcorn...no sharing this time. BYAHAHAHAHA!
So lets talk about this movie - I thought AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS was pretty ok. Wasn't a bad flick. As you can see - it stars Casey Affleck, Ben Foster and MY LOVE...Rooney Mara. I thought they did great in the movie. I really liked that whole 70's Texas feel to it...it felt like I was watching THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE...but there's no Leatherface in this movie. (lol) Just a crazy, intense, love story with a side of Bonnie & Clyde.
Now...I liked the majority of it - but...the payoff just fell short for me. It's a good movie...it's got a slow, intense build...it just didn't 'wow' me at the end and I was hoping it would. My wife...she wasn't a fan...but something tells me my mom would like this. Question is...would YOU like it?
If you're interested in checking it out in Houston - it opens today and will be showing at the Sundance Cinemas Houston.
