I know most of you have seen the Epic Beard Man clip on YouTube. The one where a grizzled old white man and a mouthy black man get into a war of words on a bus that ends up with Grizzly rearranging Mouthy’s face? Don’t lie, I know you have. It became one hell of a sensation on the net, such a big thing in fact that some chaps decided to make a movie about it. Wait, what?
Danny Trejo steps into the shoes of Epic Beard Man, now named Frank Vega, a retired Vietnam vet trying to live life after being mistreated by society when he came back from the war. Now in his senior years, Vega finds himself thrust into the spotlight when he lays the smack down on some punks during a commuter bus ride. Earning the nick name Bad Ass, Vega becomes a source of hope for his community but like all good things, it takes a turn for the worse when the police refuse to investigate his best friend’s murder.
Bad Ass is perfectly suited for Trejo, he can make a Cosby sweater look dangerous. The movie might be a great testosterone filled release for the action junkie in all of us. Explosions, knock down drag out fights, crooked (?) cops, Ron Perlman and loathsome bad guys? Yeah, I can’t wait! Bad Ass is slated to hit Blu ray and DVD June 9th.
Hit the break the watch the trailer as well as the YouTube clip that inspired it. Careful though, the second one might be a tad NSFW.
