It’s not every movie that features gratuitous birthday cake shootings, transvestite clown prostitution (in exchange for $3 and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich), papier-mâché puppetry, Sam Peckinpah-style excessive violence, and lots of religious symbolism.
Super Badass is a homicidal bounty hunter who wants to go to heaven. When he’s not shooting or stabbing the hell out of someone, he likes to unwind with heavy drinking, massive drug use, and his documentary film on pigeons. When he’s especially stressed sometimes he likes to pretend he knows martial arts, and will spend long periods of time doing something that looks like a cross between a kata and some sort of crazed drug-induced dance.
The mayor frequently calls Super Badass in to fight crime, asking him to take out everything from random robbers to the city’s top villains like the Boogieman, Lightbulb, and Bucko the Clown. The villains and the other people in this movie are as insane and stupid as Super Badass is, so things get pretty weird between the beginning and the end.
The movie is ridiculously low-budget, and Charles E. Cullen, the director/producer/writer/star of Super Badass is clearly one strange dude. He’s obviously passionate about his work, but whether he’s talented… well, he's either a crazy talentless hack or some kind of independent el-cheapo film-making genius (almost certainly the former), and you'll probably know by this point of the review if this something you want to see or not.
This kind of movie is only going to appeal to people looking for the weirdest kind of stuff around. That said, I found it to be extremely funny. The special effects alone are so terrible they had me laughing. And where else would you get a papier-mâché puppet drunk on mushroom wine pronouncing “Oh shit! It’s high fucking noon!”
