Because too much is never enough! The complete cast and crew of Jackass 3D return with an all-new UNRATED movie. Loaded with OVER AN HOUR of outrageous bonus footage, get all of the ... See full summary »
D.C. (Johnny Knoxville) is the crackpot owner of Action Point, a low-rent, out-of-control amusement park with dangerous rides. Just as D.C.'s estranged teenage daughter Boogie (Eleanor Worthington Cox) comes to visit, a corporate mega-park opens nearby and jeopardizes the future of Action Point. To save his beloved theme park and his relationship with his daughter, D.C. and the Action Point staff risk everything to pull out all the stops..
All the injuries Johnny Knoxville suffered while filming the movie were: four concussions, two blow-out fractures of his left eye, a broken hand, a broken orbital lamina, two and half teeth lost, multiple cuts and a torn meniscus. See more »
During the chase, the long distance bus is driving on the left hand rule of road rather than on the right hand rule of road as in California. No visual indication that the road is part of dual carriageway.
One estate in the car park is right-hand-drive. See more »
What a day! We ran out of beer, corn dogs, and toilet paper. In that order.

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.
