Did You Know?


The Bronco pursuit scene borrowed footage from Narrow Margin (1990) starring Gene Hackman. See more »


The chase scene in the mountains is in fact merely exterior footage from Peter Hyams' 1990 film 'Narrow Margin' re edited together with interior shots of the actors in the vehicle.

This causes obvious problems as Danny Glover's is not Caucasian like Gene Hackman's stunt driver in 'Narrow Margin.'

The back seat of the vehicle is also unoccupied in 'Narrow Margin' thus not matching the new interior shots. See more »

Just as entertaining as the first movie...
15 April 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

If you enjoyed the first "Bad Ass" movie, then you will definitely like "Bad Asses" as well, because it is just as entertaining and out there as the first movie was.

The storyline is much similar to the first movie, sure. Frank Vega (played by Danny Trejo) is now trying to live a fairly quiet life after his semi-famous attention he got in the first movie. Living in a quiet neighborhood, he frequently visits the nextdoor liquor store run by Bernie Pope (played by Danny Glover). Frank is training local youths in the boxing center, when Manny (played by Jeremy Ray Valdez) gets killed because of drugs. Teaming up with Bernie after he saved Frank's life, the two men set out to find out to clean out the dirty seed in the community.

Actually the storyline was good, despite it being corny and full of clichés. But there was just something fundamentally entertaining about it. And the movie really flourished because of the talents that were in the movie. Both Danny Trejo and Danny Glover were excellent cast for their particular roles. But I will say that Andrew Divoff really was well cast for the role as Leandro Herrera, and he played the character well.

There is a good amount of action in the movie, and despite being up well in their ages, both Danny Trejo and Danny Glover do show that they still got it. And Danny Glover did bring a comedy relief to the movie, that actually worked out quite alright.

So, for those who enjoyed the first "Bad Ass" movie, you don't want to miss out on this one.
