When Leandro Herrera lies beaten on the ground, he asks someone to call "Amberlamps". This is a reference to the viral video of Thomas Bruso (original inspiration of the Bad Ass movie duology), where a passenger who just have taken a beating from Russo, asks for an "Amberlamps". However, due to his impeded speech (presumably caused by the injury) and ambient background noises, his call for "an ambulance" was misheard by many as "an M&M" or "Amber Lamps." See more »

I am at a loss to place this film, I'm not even sure if I enjoyed it or not, or if I could recommend it.
This is an action film with a ridiculous plot where some old guys have to go and beat up some other guys; but that really isn't important.
This isn't a 'serious' action movie like Die Hard or Transporter but it isn't a full send up like Black Dynamite or Gravy Train.
The production is strange. Normally when someone throws a grenade you get a slow motion sequence of the grenade in flight, followed by a close up of the villains face, then a few seconds of explosion. Here grenade leaves hand the next frame is bad guy blowing up.
There is lots of action, the fight scenes are fast and furious but aren't particularly well choreographed. Glover and Trejo deliver their cheesy lines and punch people adequately enough.
Don't take this too serious and you may enjoy. I did... I think.
