Bad Ass, directed by Craig Moss and starring Danny Trejo, was a film no one actually thought was real. There were rumours of a film being made based on a Youtube clip where one trouble maker picks a fight with the wrong senior citizen, and thankfully the rumours of that filmed proved to be true a few months back. The first trailer was released in December, and for some reason we missed it. Apologies for that, so let me make it up to you with not only the original trailer, but also a brand new trailer released yesterday. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough and you wanna see just what exactly all the fuss is about, also embedded below is the actual real-life Youtube clip the movie is based on.
Danny Trejo plays Frank Vega, otherwise known as Bad Ass, and all he wants is a peaceful life, but people keep pushing him. Also starring in this ultra violent, and ultra cool revenge type flick are Charles S. Dutton, Ron Perlman, Joyful Drake, Patrick Fabian and John Duffy.
The film arrives in US theatres on 13th April. No date has yet been confirmed for the UK.
Decorated Vietnam hero Frank Vega returns home only to get shunned by society leaving him without a job or his high school sweetheart. It’s not until forty years later when an incident on a commuter bus (where he protects an elderly black man from a pair of skin heads) makes him a local hero where he’s suddenly celebrated once again. But his good fortune suddenly turns for the worse when his best friend Klondike is murdered and the police aren’t doing anything about it.
