Badass Gangs and Crews From Guy Movies
There’s no magic formula for creating a badass group of dudes in a movie. But lots of guns and a pinch of HGH certainly help.

Joe Cabot’s Crew
Reservoir Dogs (1992)
Badass Members: Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen), Mr. Brown (Quentin Tarintino), Mr. Blue (Eddie Bunker), Mr. Orange (Tim Roth), Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi), Mr. White (Harvey Keitel), Joe Cabot (Lawrence Tierney), “Nice Guy” Eddie Cabot (Chris Penn)
Badass Mission: A crimelord hires six small-time crooks for a diamond heist — with the understanding that no one will know anything about one another, even first names. When the caper turns into a disastrous police ambush, the cons must discover who amongst them is a police informant. Hint: It’s not the guy who tortures the policeman.
Most Badass Moment: Speaking of that infamous torture scene … it’s not the most badass moment. (Cutting off someone’s ear is really more demented than badass.) No, we love the Mexican standoff at the end, in which Mr. White, Mr. Orange, Eddie, and Joe all open fire on each other after an argument about who the informant was. It ends badly for everyone.
Badass Quote: “Eddie, you keep talking like a bitch, I’m gonna slap you like a bitch.”
