      Mark Olsen Los Angeles Times It's often difficult to tell what's bad on purpose or just badly handled. The cargo shorts and fanny pack? Purposely funny. The slack pacing? Probably not. Rated: 2/5 Apr 14, 2012 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...rarely (if ever) manages to satisfactorily exploit its irresistible setup. Rated: 2/4 Mar 17, 2015 Full Review Christian Toto Big Hollywood Bad Ass won't be confused with 'Death Wish' or even 'Gran Torino,' but it's superior to Trejo's recent dud 'Machete' Rated: 2.5/4 Jun 7, 2012 Full Review Brian Orndorf What started as internet shock value turned into a joke, and that joke has been flattened into a humor-impaired bore in Bad Ass. Rated: D Apr 14, 2012 Full Review Michelle Orange Movieline It's the casual tone that makes all the difference, but it can't quite carry the movie. Rated: 6.5/10 Apr 13, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews

      Daniel C. M Worth for the fun and satisfying revenge of Danny Trejo. Terrible in everything else. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/01/24 Full Review Renee C I loved the senior citizen humor in this movie!!! It was a great old fashioned shoot ‘‘em up show with the right amount of action and humor mixed. Loved it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie absolutely SUCKED. Trejo is so fucking ugly it is tough to watch him. I feel bad for the poor actress that had to kiss him. Stupid movie. The fucking guy didn't change his clothes the whole movie. And what's with that stupid fanny pack? All that ahole did was walk around like he was carrying watermelons. Fucking turd. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Must this all ways be on TV that’s how I found out about this boring movie., Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/01/18 Full Review Audience Member Boring but full of potential. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/25/18 Full Review Audience Member Really not worth watching it’s boring Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/21/18 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
