Clips filmed around the same time as BAM, made into the "preview" of the "sequel."

See what all the ruckus is about; and watch the trailer to the sequel to the most controversial film ever to hit FXHome.

You will want to watch Bad Action Movie before you watch the "preview" for Bad Action Movie: Basic Instinct (BAMBI).

I just wrote a whole long thing just to get an error before clicking submit :&rt; .

"Say your prayers"

"I'm atheist"

Great line!! Good music, but its overused, ive used it an I think everyone else has too. I thought there should have been closup cuts when the guy was swinging the chucks. This was very enjoyable tho. Im still obsessing bout that line hah.

Good job...

Yeah, I hope you understood that the reason we used that music is because it is over used. Also because it is tipical and terrible.
Thanks for the comments! We are glad that you find it amusing!

The "Say your prayers" line was aiming for the same humor as the F-word line, but I guess people just didn't like it as well because it was vulgar. I thought "See you in hell" would have worked better because it is more commonly used in movies.

Yes that's true that people didn't like the F word, but perhaps they just didn't like it because it was coming from a kid. I say this because (and this is the reason we used the line) it is used in terrible action films all the time for no reason. An unneeded word (ubless to show realism in human emotion perhaps) adding to poor writing and poor plot. At least in action films, 99 percent of the time the word is unnessecary, not only unnessecary but adds absolutely nothing to the scene or character. I say THIS because the words Resevoir Dogs crossed my mind at the same point in time when I typed "99 percent".

I just hope that now since everyone basically knows what our humor is like, the movie will be better received (by the way, we are already doing better than BAM was doing on it's first day!)

I hope SSJAaron saw Bad Action Movie before he rated this movie, I hope more people see it before they judge this trailer. Odds are he did though, BAM was most dowloaded last week...!!
Another thing... I am not modest

i dont think you need to have seen bad action movie for this to be funny, but it would certainly make it funnier smile

anyway, I hope people notice what we are exactly making fun of this time smile

This had alot more humor i could understand, and was actually pretty funny aside from the scene where it almost copies kungpow (ninja running scene) The athiest line was pulled off so well i actually laughed out loud when the dude with the shotgun punchlines it. If you made it seem far more serious than it was, and added some cliches that didnt kick you in the head with obviousness, you all could make a pretty hilarious movie. Just be sure to get some costumes. Great job for the most part.

This was okay. I think you overdid some of the stuff, like the fading to black on the shot of the guy walking over and over. I know you were trying to make a parody of this, but for trailers, that kind of stuff doesn't work as well. I mean, almost every trailer you see for an action movie is going to be intense and relatively well made, even though the movie may be really lame.

I can tell that you guys have talent for making trailers, as the beginning was well done. But I don't think that the jokes and parodies go as well in trailers as they do in movies. Maybe if you omitted the obvious parodies, then it would be funnier in its own right (because it would look like a well made trailer advertising a lame movie). I'll give two stars, but I think the movie will be better than that.

Hey, that was alright. You should go with loyyds advice though, and try to make it look like on of those dumb 1993 action movies, with cheesy lines and all

I wasn't stating that it took a long time, just that you could have done better. I thought that the beginning was good, but then it sort of went down the drain when there were a bunch of really slow shots.

Were not making the film. I would have thought that was obvious considering the big white on black letters that say "COMING NEVER".

Ahh, I guess I didn't think when I saw that, oooba, but I assumed that that was some joke I didn't understand. Well, in that case, I don't understand why you'd put a parody in a trailer, because, the trailers themselves are never lame (so you can't really make fun of them, or at least that's how I see it).

But it's probably wise to not make too much out of the Bad Action Movie series, because it was funny, but it would get old really quickly.

There is not a lot of truth in your trailer statement.
Almost every action film trailer is over done exactly the way ours is over done. Only we get a chance to make fun of that concept, which is why Baney conducted the trailer.

I was trying to point out the initial reaction you get from watching a trailer. Whenever I watch a trailer for an action movie, even though I know the movie will be stupid (probably), the trailer itself is still action packed. You never see a trailer with really slow cuts with just a person walking down a hill.

I guess if you think it's funny, you can put it in. I just thought it could have been better. Yes, many trailers are overdone, but yours didn't seem to make fun of that concept too well (because it was underdone, if you know what I mean).

Please don't keep retorting back for no reason. If you have a legitimate response, go right on ahead, but I don't want another 18 pages of arguing over what's a good parody and what isn't. Everyone has their own opinions.

Retorting back for no reason gains nothing. I want to indulge in why things are the way they are in the trailer, instead of argueing.

I'm sorry, I just had to add that the few seconds of him running down the hill ultimately leads to a confrontation with a man with a shotgun. If that's not action, I don't know what is.

Second of all, I can easily name a trailer with someone walking down a hill. Lord of the Rings, you know, that movie that lots of people consider one of the greatest action/epic movies ever.

Oh. I was under the impression that the trailer was not really trying to tell any sort of a story. And I wasn't saying that it's bad to have a guy walking down a hill in a trailer. I just don't think it fit as well in yours. But that's just my opinion.

Not sure what the guy walking down the hill was about. Real action trailers are very fasted paced. Even though this is a parody, it should be filmed similr. You never see the same shot for longer than 5 secs in an action trailer.

There is a shot in the Two Towers Trailer where it is on Orthanc for at least 5 seconds.

Either way, the one shot showing his "journey" to find why they are after him should not ruin the trailer. If it was different, it would not have fit with the music and you'd be giving us 2's for that. I honestly think that a lot of you just have grudges against us after the controversial first movie.

I'll admit that the way you guys, uhh, let's see, "fussed" over the ratings system has influenced my thinking. But I am trying to stay objective with my ratings. I thought that the trailer started out very well, and I especially liked the lightbulb to black shot at about 1:15. But I gave a two because I didn't think that the rest of the stuff was as good. Plain and simple.

I know some people vote unfair. I do not think this movie should have been voted a zero, even if you didn't like it at all, I think it should have deserved at least a one for the timing and effects. Some people are going to vote unfair sometimes. But you can't please everyone, so just move on and forget it.

personally I love this trailer, becuase I think it depicts trailers in general acuratley. also, I thought one of the funniest parts of the trailer was the part where the ninja is walking towards the camera, and every time it blacks out youd think it was elevating to something even more exciting, but it doesnt. I can't remember what kind of humor that's called, but it's funny (to me at least). One thing I think people don't realise about this piece is that we didn't want to just throw random crap and make it a trailer, but we actually thought about what a story for a sequel would be, and how it would be presented in trailer form. I mean, it would be easy to make a trailer for a movie with tons of cool, existing footage to use in it, but it takes allot more thought when the footage is meant to seem like it is for a trailer, but at the same time it has to look like it was really from a movie.

Also, at the end, baney had the part "The Most Highly Anticipated Movie By No One" part because we knew how many people didn't really care for BAM, and we thought that people who didn't like BAM would appreciate that joke.

Also, i don't know if this was mentioned before, but it's called BAMBI, which we all thought was a funny name for a "bad ass" action movie. Don't know if anyone caught that.

also, something that may or may not be interesting, but one of the scenes we took out was a part where the ninja and the hero are standing in front of hundreds of graves, and the ninja sais "so many, dead" and the hero replies "and for what reason?". I always liked that part because it seemed really trailery, but in the end am glad it was out or the music wouldn't have fit so perfectly.

oh and I dont know if this is what you meant by just forget it and move on, but just because some people don't like my movie doesnt mean we will just abandon it, especially when there are so many people who don't understand it.

I hate to rant but I haven't been on a computer in 3 days and I needed to type something.

Oh, sorry for the confusion. What I meant by "forget it and move on" was to forget what the other people say, and move on to whatever project you're working on next, instead of trying to explain to those people why you think their opinion is wrong (or something like that confused ).

Since YOU are the one your movies should please, take into account constructive criticism, but don't dwell on what others thought of your movie.
