Chauncey McLain, Lil Ron, Yah-Ya, Mike and Jazmine
Buckle Brothers is the tale of four young adults Lil Ron 23, Yah-Ya 18, Mike 18, Jazmine 18, from South Central, Los Angeles and Compton, CA who have found a different kind of hope in the form of the cowboy lifestyle.
This is Marquette Williams' firs time at directing and the lack of experience does show but none the less this at least an inspiring piece of cinema. The story is about a group of Urban kids who get into the rodeo instead of running the streets getting into nothing but trouble. Credit has to be given to the kids and the people that run this rodeo community for setting some good examples. There's some great characters here,the most interesting one is that of Jazmine Bennet as she is one of the few black female riders, it's too bad they didn't focus a bit more time on her but the most part the film covered a lot and it is something fresh and very interesting to watch. The scenes of the actual rodeo riding were at times intense and even frightening to watch but it showed that it takes a lot to get into this and it shows how exciting yet dangerous this sport can be. If your looking for something different Buckle Brothers would be the one to pick up, it's not only a entertaining film but it also sends a good message as well and that is always a good thing.
