THE BAD BATCH follows Arlen (Waterhouse) after she's left in a Texas wasteland fenced off from civilization. While trying to navigate the unforgiving landscape, Arlen is captured by a savage band of cannibals led by the mysterious Miami Man (Momoa). With her life on the line, she makes her way to The Dream (Reeves). As she adjusts to life in 'the bad batch' Arlen discovers that being good or bad mostly depends on who's standing next to you.
The yellow smiley face shorts worn by Arlen are the same as Die Antwoord rap artist and 'Chappie" actress Yo-Landi Visser wore in the video for the song 'Baby's On Fire'. Die Antwoord's song 'Fish Paste' is also featured in this film. See more »
Towards the beginning of the film, Miami Man's chest tattoo is written to resemble one word. As the film progresses, the words are shown to be more separated. See more »
Cows stand in their shit. They stand in their shit... 'cause they're cows. Pigs stand in their shit, 'cause they're pigs. Some misbehaving humans be making hamburgers out of my sons and daughters.

Is it good? No. Is it coherent? Hah! Is it the worst movie ever? Quite possibly.
So why would I recommend anyone watch this steaming pile of incoherent garbage? To come back and read the IMDb reviews after.
There's something cathartic about seeing the immense anger of all the other poor viewers who survived this experience. Their frustration, their rage, their inability to comprehend the world any longer... after you watch this "movie," you too will understand that sensation. And it is truly uniting.
... but from the perspective of a good use of time, no, don't watch this. It has no plot, horrible acting, and dialogue written by (and likely for) a 4 year old. It did have one incredible accomplishment though - the director managed to turn $6 million into $100,000 box office gross. So it has that going for it.
