Storyline

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. Written by Anonymous

Updated version of "Rolling Thunder" ......
6 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The similarities between "Bad Ass" and "Rolling Thunder" are unmistakable. Viet Nam Vet avenging the death of his friend pushes the violence scale, including the hand grinding garbage disposal scene from "Rolling Thunder". "Bad Ass" is well made, with some sharp editing to keep the ass whippings moving along. There are some weak attempts at humor and romance, but ultimately it is Danny Trejo and his bad ass attitude that wins the day. Stunt work with two greyhound buses chasing each other and colliding with every obstacle imaginable, only adds to the fun. If you go into "Bad Ass" expecting an ass kicking revenge movie and little more, you will not be disappointed. - MERK
