Do you remember that Youtube video that went viral called 'AC Transit Bus Fight'? It was footage of a young black guy taunting an old bloke until the old bloke snapped and beat the shit out of him... (check it out). Well Bad Ass is based on that video and the film begins with that incident and continues the story of the old guy who in this film is named Frank. It's another vigilante film thats best described as a cross between Gran Torino and Death Wish 3. Danny Trejo stars as Frank and if you don't love Trejo then you know how to show yourself out of this group! LOL. He is a bloody legend and now in his 60s he's finally landing lead roles. First Machete and now Bad Ass (with Machete 2 on the way). He has a strong screen presence and as Frank he delivers a great (hammed up) nice-guy who doesn't take shit. Tired of being ignored since Vietnam, he becomes increasingly dismayed at the violent society we've become and when his best friend is killed he launches a one man revenge mission, taking out any thug who gets in his way. It's a very tongue in cheek type of movie and you need to go into it with a flexible frame of mind. Just go with it and you'll have fun. Its almost like Hobo With A Shotgun minus the shlock... and a wink to people who've seen the original youtube video and it's many parodies, there's a great 'Amber Lamps' moment. Thumbs Up!
