Recent years have been awkward for power metal and its fans. Guitar Hero opened the door for a renaissance of the genre, with Dragonforce making it cool to play happy, major-key metal.

Poster: "Badass", why bother?

So they took "Epic Beard Man" (google it, trust me) and turned it into a movie with Danny Trejo. Except now he's more of an all around do-gooder as opposed to an unhinged, possibly racist Santa impersonator that can throw a haymaker like nobody's business. Just like Hollywood, always dumbing it down for the masses...
