While the Nitro Circus's many achievements are impressive, they pale in comparison to those of Knoxville and company's.
You really don't know anything about Nitro Circus and this review proves it.

knoxville and company direct and produce them so that kinda doesnt make sense
Aug 8 - 09:01 AM
No, it actually makes complete sense.
Aug 8 - 08:25 PM
No, it doesn't. This movie is a perfect example of critics and Jackass fanboys completely missing the point, while people who actually know a thing or two about the Nitro crew completely get it.

Oh how highly you think of yourself for 'understanding' nitro circuis nick...
Aug 9 - 06:27 AM
Another one completely missing the point.

What's the god damn mothafucking point agaian? Are you trying to cover up this shitty production that's probably on the internet by trying to give it a point. PATHETIC
Aug 9 - 10:31 PM
I'd like to know what the point is Nick. You seem to be saying that there is some underlying profound meaning hidden within the stunts that these men perform. Yet you refuse to disclose what that point is, dismissing everyone who thinks otherwise when it's not very clear what exactly is meant to be understood.

Everybody seems to be comparing this movie to Jackass. You cannot compare this to Jackass, they are two completely separate movies with different target audiences. Sure, it's produced by Knoxville and co. but that doesn't mean it's supposed to be anything like the stuff that he's produced previously. I'm not saying there is a profound hidden meaning behind the stunts performed in this movie, I'm saying that only people who understand what Nitro Circus is all about and who understand why they do what they do will have any chance of comprehending why this movie is so great. If you go in with the mindset that this is supposed to be anything like Jackass, then you're in for a disappointment, if you go in knowing what the Nitro Crew set out to achieve then you're more likely to enjoy it. This movie is merely a big screen follow up of their TV series.

What are they trying to achieve?!?!

"I'm saying that only people who understand what Nitro Circus is all about and who understand why they do what they do will have any chance of comprehending why this movie is so great."
Nitro circus is about doing tricks on skateboards and motorbikes, there isn't that much to understand. This movie is completely comparable to Jackass, as it is the same type of movie. Jackass tends to go for more humor, while nitro circus tends to go for more wow factor. I'm glad i didn't pay to see this, because it wouldn't have been worth it.
These movies are about having a low budget and making lots of money doing stupid stuff, so in that sense, yes the movie completely pales in comparison to Jackass.

Are you kidding? Can you compare Knoxville to Pastrana? Pastrana has accomplished more in his life in his 20's than either of us will ever. He's not a "Jackass,"
Aug 8 - 10:26 PM
He's not fun to watch on-screen while Knoxville is.

This is so true i would rather watch someone skydive off of a high rise than someone get stapled in the behind or get stung by 100's of bee's, the Jackass stunts are lame and kind of old, the Nitro circus stunts are more daring and fun to watch, even if the production is low budget, Pastrana and crew make for a great watch. you don't see Bam sky diving off of buildings or jumping a bus full of people.

Travis and the Nitro Circus crew have pushed the boundaries waaaaay farther than Knoxville and the Jackass crew. You could see that with Steve O's expression in the trailer.

This film will only be appreciated by true Nitro Circus fans. Critics will bash this movie cause they are expecting another movie like Jackass. Nitro Circus and Jackass have few similarities. Jackass is based on doing dumb stunts to make you laugh. Nitro Circus is about pulling off stunts others thought impossible. Jackass is designed to fail to make you laugh while Nitro Circus pushes the cast to succeed and keep you on the edge of your seat.

The stunts were cool. The disasters were funny (except for one). But these guys are not the comics that the Jackass guys are.
This movie did make a better use of 3D than Jackass.
Aug 9 - 07:44 PM
Very true the personalities and personas of the Jackass crew just is just WAAAY better then the cardboard like personalities in Nitro Circus. Another thing is that alot of the "big" stunts they show in the trailer have been done before alot in the show. Jackass is unique by doing stuff noone has done before and that noone wants to do but Nitro Circus is just 1 hr and 28 min of internent for a price.

I laugh at you
