Trivia

At some point, Boogie (Eleanor Worthington-Cox) is wearing a shirt that says 'Teenage Kicks'. This is a reference to a song by The Undertones. The song is featured in this movie, as well as in the Jackass TV-show, during the High Dive 2 stunts. See more »

Goofs

The story takes place in California.

A couple of Mercedes-Benz cars as well as Toyota Corolla used for teenager booze run are seen without mandatory side running lamps, beefier bumpers, and sealed beam round or rectangle headlamp capsules.

Opel Kadett is never sold in the United States. Same for Audi 100 Coupé S. See more »

Action Point is Like Going to the Carnival for the 5th Time in a Week, a Disappointing and Completely Half-Baked Adventure
7 June 2018 | by CANpatbuck3664See all my reviews

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.
