Intriguing documentary that touches on an undiscovered culture in America – the Urban Cowboy. Not John Travolta, but real authentic cowboys like Charles Sampson and Bill Pickett who inspired this doc. Part Rocky, part Lean On Me, Buckle Brothers should find a solid audience between mid-westerners eager to learn about Rodeos and black audiences looking for something new. Solid project with likeable subjects….

…the subject matter is so compelling and the kids grab at your heart in this inspiring piece of cinema. There’s some great characters here, Buckle Brothers would be a great title to rent it’s not only an entertaining film but it also sends a good message as well and that is always a good thing.
