The story of a Los Angeles hit man. Corrado is the best there is in the city of LA. Pimped by his nefarious handler, Frankie, he performs jobs ranging from tune-ups to outright hits. Frankie loves Corrado for his lack of mercy, for his coldness and readiness to do the job no matter what. Now Frankie has a pearl of a job for Corrado - hit the aging kingpin Vittorio Spinello in his own house. Make it look like Vittorio's death is an accident, get out, and $500K is his. Corrado readily accepts. Corrado is about to perform the hit when he is interrupted by Vittorio's brand new live in nurse, Julia, and winds up shooting Vittorio dead and escaping out the window to leave Julia holding the bag. Julia doesn't have to wait long for Vittorio's son Paolo to discover her standing by his father's corpse. In an unreasonable rage he accuses her of killing his father, or at least being complicit in his death. Corrado overhears this on the other side of the window he has escaped from, and somehow ...

Did You Know?


Originally entitled "Corrado", the film was renamed domestically as "Bad Ass" by the distributor. See more »


When Paolo finds out Julia is from Nebraska, he asks his boys "Where the f*** is Nebraska?" A few seconds later he tells his boys to find Julia "and her f***ing Cornhusker boyfriend." However, if Paolo had never heard of Nebraska, it is unlikely he would have ever heard the term "cornhusker". See more »

Corrado: My name is retribution. I'm your unsettled debt. My name is vengeance. Some would send me for you. My name is Corrado. There are two kinds of people in this world: those that abide by the law, and those that don't. For those that abide by the law, you have collection agencies, courts, jails, and rules. For those that don't, you have me.

Wow...just, wow.
7 October 2011 | by (Raleigh, NC, USA) – See all my reviews

As I've said before, I can't give films like this just one star, mainly because the film is competently lit and you can hear the dialogue. A lot of indie films don't meet these criteria. Oh, yeah...and it has a story of sorts, with a beginning, middle and end.

Unfortunately, that's about all it has. I like Johnny Messner and he certainly outshines everyone else in the cast, but that's not saying much. Sizemore and everyone else just sort of slides along, either chewing scenery or phoning in their performances.

But I have to single out Candace Elaine, who it seems is an in-law of the director, as being the winner of "The Godfather III Award for Incompetency in Acting by a Relative of the Director and/or Producer." She is absolutely terrible in every single scene. It's beyond my ability to describe how bad she is and how she destroys every scene with any potential. My first guess was that this was her first acting job, but that turns out to be wrong. My second guess was that she was sleeping with the producer, but I won't explore that avenue. My third guess was actually correct (see above). As an added (admittedly sexist) observation, her face is shiny and her hair looks terrible throughout the movie as well. At least she hit her marks.

This film isn't worth your time, unless you are a huge Messner fan.

By the way, I'm getting really POed about this website trying to tell me that I spell "dialogue" incorrectly. One of the editors/moderators should consult a dictionary. "Dialog" may be an alternate spelling, but "dialogue" is preferred in both British and American English.
