Trivia

When Manny is sparring at the beginning of the movie, Frank is heard coaching him by saying to "work the body." Manny starts sending his shots lower and one of those punches lands below the belt. Manny's sparring partner can even be seen noticeably shaken up when he slightly doubles over momentarily after the low blow. See more »

Goofs

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 »

If you liked the first movie...
15 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed the original "Bad Ass" movie, so I looked forward to this sequel when I heard about its release. I had to search for it in several video stores in my city, but I eventually found it. Was it worth the wait? Overall, I would say yes. The sequel has the good idea of giving the lead character an equally old and grumpy partner, and the two Dannys (Trejo and Glover) playing the leads manage to generate some great chemistry. It also helps that their characters have been written to be very likable not just together, but apart. The movie has generally good production values and moves from scene to scene fairly quickly, so there are no boring parts. Don't get me wrong, this movie is not perfect. The movie cheapens out at one point by extensively using footage from the 1990 movie "Narrow Margin". Also, the movie's mix of yuk-yuk comedy with hard violence does give the movie an inconsistent (and weird) feeling at times. Fortunately, there's more good stuff than disappointing material here. So if you liked the first movie, chances are you'll like this sequel.
