Bad Ass is an American action-comedy movie from 2012 directed by Craig Moss. The movie stars Danny Trejo as the lead character, decorated Vietnam War veteran Frank Vega. In addition to Trejo, the cast includes Charles S. Dutton and Ron Perlman. The film is based on a true story, and it is inspired by an incident in which an elderly man named Thomas Bruso became an overnight sensation after a video of him fighting on a public bus went viral.

The movie is set in Los Angeles and follows Frank Vega, a decorated Vietnam War veteran who lives a quiet life as a handyman. But when he witnesses a young black man being harassed and beaten by a group of thugs on a bus, Frank suddenly decides to take action. With no regard for his own safety, Frank jumps in and fights off the attackers, earning the nickname "Bad Ass" in the process.

The incident is caught on camera and quickly becomes an internet sensation. Thanks to the video, Frank becomes a cult hero and a symbol of hope for the disenfranchised and marginalized members of the community. However, things take a dark turn when Frank's best friend Klondike is murdered by a group of thugs, and the police refuse to take action. Fueled by a sense of outrage, Frank sets out to get revenge, and his actions quickly turn him from a hero to a vigilante.

As Frank sets out to take down the criminals, he starts to attract a lot of attention, both positive and negative. On the one hand, he is lauded as a hero by the media and the public. On the other hand, he is considered a dangerous vigilante by the police, who are desperate to apprehend him. Frank's actions also attract the attention of a mysterious figure known only as "Hatchetman," who seems to have connections to organized crime.

Throughout the movie, we see Frank navigate the complex world of good and evil, and deal with the repercussions of his actions. He grapples with his own sense of morality, and questions whether he has done the right thing. But in the end, he decides that he is willing to pay the price for his actions, and is willing to do whatever it takes to bring justice to his community.

Overall, Bad Ass is a fast-paced action-comedy that is sure to entertain fans of the genre.
