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.

I like it, but it's not worth going out of your way to see.

I feel like Johnny Knoxville has lost a step. I don't know how true that is, because thinking about how much I loved Bad Grandpa contradicts that, but he looks old in this (not just because he is old but I'm sure years of stunt work will do that for you), he looks worn out old.

In what looks like a homage to Action Park, Knoxville plays a park owner literally keeping the rides together using duck tape when a rival park plans to put him out of the biz, so he ups his game by turning down the safety measurements, which allows Knoxville to do what he does best.

I think this movie could have used the support of the entire Jackass crew and not just Chris Pontus, although Pontus totally proves if you are going to do this with only one member, he's got to be that member. Absolutely Hilarious

Realistically, if you are a fan of Knoxville and Jackass you'll love this picture, but I do feel they could have used more slap stick stunts and less story.

Go for laughs and entertainment, don't focus on the story.

This movie was supposed to be based on the actual Action Park in New Jersey which was a haven of stretching safety rules and "innovative" attractions as a way to compete with better funded parks popping up. It was deemed so unsafe and son many people were hurt that it eventually closed.

For some reason production could not source the rights to that story and came up with a different one. One that is written around quite laughable pranks and tricks. If you demand too much from this movie you will be disappointed, if you want to laugh just see it even if at points it seems rudderless.

Many characters weren't well developed in the story, but if there's a reason why I give it an 8 instead of a 6 is Eleanor Worthington-Cox. She's too talented for a film like this, yet when the script allowed she really pulled it off.

Just go and see it and laugh.
