Bad Asses on the Bayou full movie review - Could be the most generic franchise of all time.....l
A franchise based on a popular youtube video? It's happened/happening, and by the final shot, it seems that there is no give up yet......for the writers at least.
So this time the boys foil a robbery, the video gets posted on the net again, and they decide to take a break to the Bayou, where the comic relief woman from the second is living with her fiancée, and the bloke from Die Hard 2 and Coming To America.
No sooner as you can say 'montage of alcohol drinking', the comic relief woman is kidnapped by Duck Dynasty, and is held for a tasty ransom.
So it's up to the guys to rescue her, wearing ever ridiculous outfits, and fixing a sub-plot including some young lad getting bullied by a really greasy haired lad.
Here's a challenge for you, watch every film that Danny Trejo has appeared in, whatever quality the movie is, try it, he has been in almost every film ever made. The man was in Heat for crying out loud, and now he's comfortable making very generic, nuts n' bolts action movies.
So the best thing to do is lower your expectations, and take comfort in knowing that the two leads are endearing enough, and ignore the abysmal acting from the rest of the cast, Amos aside.
It's pretty clear who the bad guy is from the upstart, the director probably forgot to tell him not to go full pantomime.
So for the rest of the film, we have the two taking out the bad guys very slowly, Amos joining them in taking out the bad guys very slowly, and a silly twist that you could see coming from about ten minutes in,my hanks to some truly terrible narrative and acting.
But with a title like this, what else would you expect? Its watchable enough for a Sunday morning, and it's use of stock footage from Air America is both genius, and at the same time, hilarious.
Throwaway stuff of the highest order....
