Good, Bad & Ugly Review: Bad Ass

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: NA (Critics) / 42% (Audience)
Directed By: Craig Moss
Written By: Craig Moss and Elliot Tishman
Starring: Danny Trejo, Charles S. Dutton and Ron Perlman
Studio: IDP/Samuel goldwyn Films

Synopsis: A Vietnam veteran who becomes a local hero after saving a man from attackers on a city bus decides to take action when his best friend is murdered and the police show little interest in solving the crime.

The Good:
The sight of Danny Trejo in his Epic Beard Man uniform is funny no matter how many times I see it. Also Trejo and Charles S. Dutton seemed to be enjoying themselves immensely in this movie.

The Bad:
The pacing was sluggish more often than not and the attempts at humor were so incredibly bad. And who casts Ron Perlman as a bad guy but then doesn’t show him? That is just stupid.

The Ugly:
The fight climactic fight scene between was a humongous joke. The stunt doubles were so obvious that it was reminiscent of the original Star Trek fight scenes where the stunt doubles looked nothing like the actors. It did provide the only truly hilarious moment in the entire film even if it was unintentional.

Final Verdict: A goofy movie with a goofy plot and goofy performances that is not nearly as much fun as it needs to be. Worth a watch just for shits and giggles if you have nothing better to do. C-
