Editorial Reviews

Danny Trejo (Machete) packs a punch in this bare-fisted, bone-crunching action thriller inspired by true events. Shunned by society for nearly forty years, Vietnam War veteran Frank Vega (Trejo) becomes an instant celebrity when he thwarts a hate crime on a city bus and footage of the incident goes viral on the Internet. But when his best friend is murdered-and the police seem unwilling to help-Vega takes his new Bad Ass nickname to the extreme against corrupt cops and a crooked mayor (Perlman) in pursuit of old-school justice!

This film is just a fun little action film that shouldn't be taken too serious. And if you're into those kinds of movies, you should enjoy this one. And with a tagline "They 'messed' with the wrong senior citizen", how can you go wrong? Personally, I'm a big Danny Trejo fan. And its nice to see him play in more starring roles (like Machete). And this role fits him perfectly. The film has plenty of action, some amusing lines of dialogue, and actually a pretty good storyline. In fact, its partly based on a true event of an older man beating a younger guy up on a bus (which is how the film begins). The acting is decent, and the only kinda weak thing is some of the special effects look very obvious. Other than that, I can't complain to much about the film. I definitely enjoyed it. You have to know what kind of film you're watching in order to have the right expectations. Obviously, if you bought or rent this expecting something like Training Day or something other more dramatic action film, then you're gonna be disappointed. Though certain elements of this film does put me in mind of something like Gran Torino and Death Wish. But this movie isn't supposed to be overly serious and dramatic really, and it knows that. Its just a fun action film to watch, oh and with a great theme song as well!

There is nothing like getting cozy with a warm and fuzzy Danny Trejo vigilante film with a hot cup of cocoa made with my Keurig coffee machine bought on the Amazon. Oh Wait! I'm not in the vine program. Never mind.

Danny Trejo, ex-Vietnam war vet, hot dog stand entrepreneur, becomes a reluctant vigilante after his war buddy Klondike (Harrison Page) was murdered. The police are dragging their feet on the investigation. The movie compares him to Charles Bronson, but at times he is more like Harry Brown. Ron Perlman has a minor role as the crooked mayor. Very cliche filled film.

It attempts to be funny, but can really only muster mild humor. Perhaps the funniest aspect is how our tough BA vigilante takes the bus everywhere he has to go to find the bad guys. This is not the grindhouse style Trejo fans are used to seeing, although it does turn bloody after a slow start. It is worth a rental.

Frequent F-bomb, brief sex, brief nudity

Bad ass is a fun filled action parody that don't take it self seriously,a little over the top for sure ,but for what you get ,i won't complain, Danny Trejo gives a typical Danny Trejo performance,gruff, ruff and geezer like (grand torino)style of acting in this movie .Ron "I'll be in every movie" Perlman make a brief appearance as da mayor ,Charles Dutton plays a sleazy hustler who run the city , There a few tender moments that will not be revealed by me ! there is the battle between Bad-ass and Charles Dutton is worth viewing several times even in slow motion which was hilarious unintentionally,I don't normally even talk about movies like this one , but I actually liked it!

"You killed my best friend, how do you want to die?" When Vietnam vet Frank Vega (Trejo) returns to the US he has big plans for his life. When a few things don't go his way life begins to pass him by. He is now 60 and lost. While taking the bus one day he defends an elderly man who is being picked on and finds himself a local hero. After his friend is murdered and the cops don't do enough he decides to take the law into his own hands. I have to start by saying that only Danny Trejo could play this part, it is so perfect for him. Perfect blend of over the top action and comedy and realistic action that only he can pull off. That said this is really nothing original combining parts of "Falling Down", "Gran Torino" and "Hobo With A Shotgun" but what the movie is is very entertaining. There are some movies that suck you in with a story and keep you interested and guessing. This is not one of those movies but if you are looking for a movie to put in and be entertained for an hour and a half with out much thinking then this is perfect. Overall, not a good movie per se, but a very entertaining one that is worth a watch. I give it a B.

It reminded me of movies from old. Had a flavor to it as if John Carpenter had directed it, but nicer. Well done Craig Moss (Director).

Format: DVD
Bad Ass(released April/12)stars,among others,Danny Trejo,Charles S. Dutton and Ron Perlman.This is a very nice film of the little man getting his revenge on those that would bring them down.It is very loosely based on an incident in which real live Thomas Bruso was attacked and fought back on a transit bus in Oakland,Ca.back in 2010.How loosely?Picture all the lug nuts but one on a wheel having come off,and the last one is hanging on by a thread!
The story is based in east L.A. and two punks board a buss and harass a passenger.Trejo steps in and the two end up on the floor of the bus.A video is taken and posted on the equivalent of You Tube,which goes viral and Trejo thereafter is labelled "bad ass".This former decorated Vietnam vet whose only source of income has been a hot dog stand for about 40 years,soon loses his mother and ends up moving into her house.He now has his mothers dog and a good friend living with him;the latter the man who saved his life in Vietnam during combat.
Trejo's friend one night gives him a flash drive,and asks that he keep it in a safe place.His friend goes out later but never comes back,as he ends up murdered.It seems they were after that self same flash drive. The police of course end up at the scene but their"investigation" is slower than molasses on a block of ice.Trejo becomes frustrated and starts to dig into matters himself.Returning to the crime scene he finds a spent bullet cartridge in a drain and a locket on a chain belonging to one of the killers.
Trejo follows a circuitous route in trying to find the name of the killer and to the different places he is forced to go to.In the end he finds his man.He also finds out the name of the ultimate person responsible for the hit on his friend.
