Bad Ass

 (2012)

Bad Ass Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Decorated Vietnam hero Frank Vega returns home only to get shunned by society leaving him without a job or his high school sweetheart. It's not until forty years later when an incident on a commuter bus (where he protects an elderly black man from a pair of skin heads) makes him a local hero where he's suddenly celebrated once again. But his good fortune suddenly turns for the worse when his best friend Klondike is murdered and the police aren't doing anything about it.

For more about Bad Ass and the Bad Ass Blu-ray release, see Bad Ass Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Danny Trejo, Charles S. Dutton, Ron Perlman, Richard Riehle, Patrick Fabian, Joyful Drake
Director: Craig Moss

Bad Ass Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

I wasn't able to dredge up much internet info on how Bad Ass was filmed, but it looks to me like it was shot digitally, which would also make sense given the movie's low budget. The Blu-ray's 1080p/AVC encode is surprisingly strong considering how terrible the film is otherwise. For evidence of the level of clarity at play, look no further than screenshots of Danny Trejo's iconically pocked and pitted face. In most cases, every wrinkle, line, pore, and mustache hair is neatly resolved. Of course, this extends throughout the image; with few exceptions, whatever's in focus generally looks sharp and defined. Color is dense and stable too, with contrast that sacrifices a bit of shadow detail for a deliberately punchy aesthetic. The image can be slightly noisy, but I suspect this is intentional too—it looks as if some artificial grain might've been added to the picture in post to enhance the grindhouse effect. The dead giveaway that we're looking at digital material? The three or four instances of slow motion in the movie look awful, with noticeable ghosting artifacts and stutter. I'm guessing the slow-mo was done in post, not in-camera, requiring a program to interpolate new frames into the footage. There aren't any other distinct distractions, however—no obvious edge enhancement, detail-smearing DNR, etc. Bad Ass most likely looks as good here as it's ever going to look.


Bad Ass Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Bad Ass features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that gets the job done competently, but with few truly kickass aural embellishments. The sound is at its most brutal during the fights, where body blows land with exaggerated, LFE-assisted thumps, and the rear channels get the most action. I wouldn't call this mix "immersive," but it suits the low-rent material rather well, with a decent amount of ambience and effects that have plenty of presence. Todd Haberman's score is clear and modestly engaging, but the film's "theme" is an obnoxiously on-the-nose track by Kid Frost & Big Tank called "I'mA Bad Ass." Nonetheless, it all sounds good dynamically and clarity-wise. Dialogue is always clean, unmuffled, and easily understood, and for those that need or want them, the disc includes optional English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles.
