Bad Ass The Movie!

I didn't see a thread on this so I thought I would post it. There has been some talk that this movie is based on the Epic Beard Man. I wonder if this movie is even real and will actually be released.

I also didn't realize that Danny Trejo could be considered a senior citizen as he is 67 years old. Crazy!

Yeah, that's likely a real trailer. Silver Nitrate Entertainment were behind S. DARKO and BIG STAN (a Rob Schneider comedy based around him avoiding being raped in prison).

I don't see why there would be any question that this is based on Epic Beard Man.

The production company at :48 is listed as "Amber Lamps Inc" which leads me to think it's fake, but Danny Trejo does do anything, so it's probably real.

Those often have "funny" names.

According to Wikipedia it certainly is.

Never heard of the incident until I saw the trailer.

I bet there will be a lot of leaking in this movie.

Re: Bad Ass The Movie!

As much as I hate Silver Nitrate, my interest has been piqued because this looks like a modern-day Cannon Films production.

The fact that Danny Trejo is 4'6" and 300lbs. of muscle might have something to do with it.

That's exactly what it felt like.

I just watched it and I liked it. It was an entertaining 90 minute romp. The only thing off-putting to me was how they never actually referred to the city they were in as Los Angeles. They kept showing different places around LA, and even the Los Angeles County Coronor's Office among other locations with LA in the title, and yet they kept referring to it as a nameless city.

There also seemed to be some kind of an indecision as to whether or not they could actually use official YouTube clips or not. In the opening montage a video is shown under something called "YouView", but then later in the movie when people are watching this "Bad Ass" video it's all on actual YouTube.

I know, I know, it was a low budget direct-to-video film but still. It really felt like a cheesy 80s action movie.

Gets my thumbs up.
