Essentially just another episode of “Jackass” dressed up to appear as a movie…
Well, the bar is set pretty low considering the cast that stars in this movie. With a bunch of the people from “Jackass”, then I kind of already knew what I was getting into here prior to sitting down to watch “Action Point”.
And true enough, this was essentially just an episode of “Jackass” upon which they had slapped the illusion of it being an actual movie. Sure, they had something that resembled a storyline, but let’s be honest, this is all about the stunts, pranks and absurdity of what people are willing to put themselves (and others) through in order for creating entertainment.
Entertainment… well, I use that word lightly here. Why? Well, because this was not the most interesting or entertaining of movies around. And I doubt that this will be a movie that causes much of a ruckus or any kind of stir. In fact, I believe it will vanish into oblivion in the same manner of under the radar as its existence came to be.
If you are a fan of the “Jackass” crew and their stunts, then you will find some amusement in “Action Point” for sure. But if you sit down to watch this movie with the intention of being entertained by watching a proper movie, you will be sorely disappointing.
Sure, some of the outrageous stunts were fun to watch, but hardly capable of sustaining a movie. I managed to sit through “Action Point” to the very end, although I can’t claim to be properly entertained. And I know for a fact that this movie is not one that I will ever return to watch a second time around.
Action Point is Like Going to the Carnival for the 5th Time in a Week, a Disappointing and Completely Half-Baked Adventure
The positives of Action Point are few and far between. I liked the idea for this movie, lets try Jackass with a plot about an amusement park. Its cool that they decided to do Action Point as a period piece (you couldn’t do it as a modern day movie which D.C. even points out). Also, as much as I wouldn’t cast him in a Scorsese movie, Johnny Knoxville is still fun to watch. He has a certain kind of charm and there were a few points where we were laughing because of how well he sells his stunts. That’s all the nice things I can say about Action Point.
Action Point is best summarized as if the Jackass movies tried to work in a coming-of-age story and lets save the rec centre as a through lines. I thought this was an interesting idea, if done right you could get the outrageous fun of Jackass with some effort to create an actual movie (I enjoy the Jackass movies but they’re a collection of skits, there’s no plot). The problem is that the plot is so simple and nonsensical that you can’t form the emotional connection to D.C.’s (Johnny Knoxville) and Boogie’s (Eleanor Worthington-Cox) relationship that the movie is counting on you to have. Why should I care if Boogie gets to go to the Clash concert? Why should I suspend my disbelief enough to buy these brutally incompetent villains not being able to shut this park down immediately? Should D.C. be the primary guardian for Boogie when it’s obvious so many blows to the head have decreased his capability in almost everything? I came to watch the mayhem and if you’re going to commit to a story, put in a more concerted effort to tell something interesting.
I don’t want to say much about the acting, the cast as a whole is decent. I’ve already thrown some credit Knoxville’s way and I liked the performance of Eleanor even if her character and her motivations were run-of-the-mill. The rest of the cast deserved better, to their credit they didn’t just phone it in but I didn’t think there were many standouts.
This movie was pretty bad but I never got angry with it. This was mainly due to the stunts, even if some of them were tame compared to Knoxville’s previous work and they spoiled the best ones in the trailer. I’ll also credit most of the cast (especially Knoxville and Eleanor Worthington-Cox) for putting some effort in (just past the bare minimum) when it would have been easy to just throw whatever up on the screen considering how weak the material turned out to be. I saw this with a friend and we agreed it was pretty bad but we got enough laughs to avoid calling the trip to the theatre a total waste. I can’t recommend this movie though, if you want to see something wild, watch Knoxville and his crew’s old stuff. If you’re interested in this story, read up on the park that inspired the movie. Unless you’re dying to see this, you’re better off skipping Action Point.
