Pretty good redneck action flick
24 April 2001 | by (Kimberling City, MO.) – See all my reviews

I'm a sucker for these kinds of movies but I really enjoyed Big Bad John. I'm sure no one has ever heard of it and I seriously doubt if any one will EVER read this review but since no one has bothered, I think I will "do the honors".

I first saw this movie when I was nine years old. Well, I'm twenty now. It was cool then and it's cool now. I usually like anything with Bo Hopkins in it and this is no exception. Even though he is one of the baddies.

This is just an old-fashioned, good ole boy flick. If that's your sort of thing and you can actually find a copy of this, give it a run
