Overview

A decorated Vietnam veteran becomes a local hero after standing up to a pair of skinheads on a transit bus, and he later takes the law into his own hands after the police fail to investigate the brutal murder of his best friend. When Frank Vega (Danny Trejo) returned home from fighting for his country, he should have been hailed as a hero. Instead, he drifted into the margins of society after failing to find a job and being abandoned by his high-school sweetheart. Decades later, when Frank sees a pair of skinheads harassing an elderly black man on a city bus, he knocks them both out as the incident is captured on video. An instant viral hit, the widely circulated video turns Frank into an Internet celebrity. But his fame comes at a high price when his best friend Klondike is killed and authorities sweep the murder under the rug. Meanwhile, Frank's biggest battle is yet to come. Ron Perlman and Charles S. Dutton co-star.

I have a confession.Danny Trejo is the sole reason I watched this movie. We have that type of relationship where if he's in it, I'll watch it. Because c'mon, he's a bad a**! And speaking of Bad A**, if you hadn't already guessed by the no-holds-barred-title, this is a movie I lovingly classify awesomely bad. It's a shame, really, that Trejo's not one of the more well-known action stars of today because he genuinely is a total BAD A**. I kind of adore him despite his choice in doing awesomely bad and just plain bad movies. Bad A** is one of those vigilante justice titles much like Grand Torino or The Brave One. I guess the biggest difference is that it takes on a more casual tone and lacks the depth and insight that most movies of this genre do. And it's not to say that Bad A** is bad necessarily, it definitely makes a point, only it does so with a little less finesse than the others. And I have to give them credit because there's only so much that a**-kicking can make up for when you're working with a subpar screenplay. One of the prerequisites for obtaining my seal of awesomely badness is that a movie must NOT take itself too seriously. So yeah, Bad A** definitely doesn't. In fact, there are enough well-timed quips of comedy to make it enjoyable and tone down on the seriousness. It's also notable to mention that the comedy here outshines many of the cliched puns used in action flicks today. They might not be smart but they're original. Bad A** has a good mix of action, comedy and drama so it never gets stale. And yes, I don't deny that there is a bit of the cheese factor to the movie, however, it's got a decent message at it's core so I'm willing to overlook all that. If I had only two words to describe Bad A** they would be awesomely bad. While not the savviest movie in the revenge department, it's not a total loss thanks to its explosive action and well-timed comedy. It's a fun and likeable and gets the point across without being to heavy handed or serious.
