Not worth watching
6 April 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I will try to write this without trying to insult anyone involved with this movie. Sorry if I do, but I have to say Badass Showdown is an insult to the viewers too.

All is filmed mostly in one location, except for the nice beaches we can see sometimes.

After watching a while, I just had to find out who the female director was. To my shock it was a man named David DeCoteau. There are a lot of scenes with all the guys showering, often a couple minutes of watching them. And quite a lot of scenes with half-naked boys doing exercise (not even doing it right).

The plot is thin, if any at all.

The actors are so bad you think they lost a bet and had to be in this movie. Yes, they are that bad.

Then there is the music/sounds. What did the sound department think of? Action movies usually have some crappy sounds, but this has a huge amount of it. The music doesn't fit in, it sounds more like from a sci-fi thriller.

The hand-held cameras does nothing good if you ask me. It made me dizzy and it looks like its filmed by kids.

I could not give 0 out of 10, so I had to give it 1. I'll watch Night of the Lepus 100 times before I watch this again. If they used $1.000.000 on this movie, a better choice would be to give it to charity or homeless people.
