I enjoyed the first one but really didn't know what to expect with the second one... but sure enough it delivered and it delivered hard. One of the better action comedies I've seen in a long time. Good story, well choreographed action scenes and solid cast but most of all this movie had heart. Trejo and Glover are hilarious together. What I love best is that this movie doesn't take itself seriously as it takes a page out of some of the great '80's action comedies complete with tongue in cheek one liners. Loved that they cast Jonathan Lipnicki "Jerry Maguire" <more>
and the addition of Loni Love takes the comedy to a whole other level. Was very excited to hear that they're making a third installment of the film with third Bad Ass John Amos. "Expendables" got nothing on this movie.
An undeniable contemporary masterpiece (by tziger)
I honestly do not think words are capable to help express how outrageously ingeniousness, deep and well crafted this movie is.The acting, directing,set design,lighting, script, cinematography and thought provoking filming utilized in this magnum opus is almost too much for the fickle human brain to comprehend.People might talk about the most basic extrapolations of the movie that can be inferred from it , like characters , coherent plot, consistency , pacing , sensible editing , and a general attempt to make you understand what you are watching. But Bad Ass 2: Bad asses forsakes such <more>
elementary movie tropes and conventions in favor of giving you what other forms of art can only be disillusioned into thinking they can achieve - The meaning of life itself.In the journey to self retribution Danny Trejo realizes that there are things in life out there bigger than him, but I did not understand one god damn thing about this movie. but that is exactly what life is like, you might not understand it , but an old black man farted in the middle of an old Mexican fella trying to kiss a mature single mother.And there, my life was finally complete again.Thank you officer.
It doesn't get much better than these grumpy old men. Watch out trouble here they come. (by face-819-933726)
You might not remember a little movie from the summer of 2012 called Bad Ass, but think back just a bit, and it will come to you. Danny Trejo was on the bus minding his own business after another long day slinging hot dogs on the street when these hoods started making trouble, and thought that he was just another old guy they could push around. You remember now, they were very wrong, and this all led to our BA taking on the gangs, and bringing justice to the streets. Well here we are in 2014, and just a few weeks ago I can remember thinking "I wonder what Danny Glover is up to?" <more>
then this nice little surprise drops into my lap. The action hero who was "gettin to old for this" 30 years ago is back to provide just the right level of support both physically, and comically. This is a decent movie that has been filmed well, and is built on a great foundation however fantastical it may be. I can recommend this to anyone, and feel good doing so. You have the fantastic new team up of Trejo, and Glover who are so good at being old, then just as good at swinging with the best of them a moment later. You have a decent story that is family friendly if you have a pretty tough family , a bit of language and though there is killing it is not done in a flashy gory way, there is a lot of good hearted humour in there too, so give this piece a chance.

I enjoyed first bad ass movie and after that i had some thirst for a second run of bad ass. i didn't think they are going to make a sequel since it didn't get much attention. but the creators were brave enough to take it for a another run. i respect their guts.and the movie bad asses bad ass 2 started just the way i hoped it. Frank was not the useless old man he once was, but he is a respected member of the community doing something with his skills while helping youngsters to earn some respect in the world. only part i was disappointed was not having the characters Amber and Martin <more>
as Frank's lover and step son.and also partnering up with Danny Glover was a good idea.Bad ass teamed up with the grumpy old man. unrealistic, still funny, funny characters, good fight scenes, good car chase scene, average story,average acting,bad ass-ism all over the movie, love, hate, respect quite a good movie to lighten up your day.
