POSTERS

Preview: Bad Ass (2012)

Synopsis:

An old man finds himself a web phenomenon when he refuses to move from his seat on the bus and kicks the asses of the hoodlums who try to take it from him. He then becomes a renegade seeking justice where he can.

  • Poster: C-

Review:

Not saying that you should avoid your protagonist on the poster, but never make them so overwhelmingly large that you want to avert your eyes.

  • Trailer: D / D / D

Review:

There are three trailers, but talking about them independently would be a waste of time. Just like Hobo with a Shotgun and Snakes on a Plane, this latest stylistic throwback to the blaxploitation era doesn't look terribly engaging nor extremely interesting.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
