Action Point Reviews

August 31, 2018
Can't hold a candle to the Jackass glory days.

It's quickly clear, however, that Knoxville (now aged 47) actually built this movie for nostalgic middle-aged men like himself.

Watching it is like travelling through a wormhole to a slightly crummier version of 2004.

Ouch! Do you really want to line up to see the bawdy life being sucked out of a once subversive franchise? Action Point is the first Jackass-related movie to play it safe. Now that is truly painful.

Clocking in at a svelte 84 minutes, it still feels about an hour too long.

A movie that's about reckless freedom and counter-culture communities needs to be less by-the-numbers than "Action Point."

If you were a Jackass fan back in their prime, you'll probably still chuckle alongside them as they continue to risk life and limb for the sake of slapstick.

For all of the manic anti-authoritarian energy that Knoxville and pals generate in "Action Point," it's not directed at anything, which renders it meaningless and leaves the film to fizzle out like a deflated balloon.

The result is an ill-conceived disaster.

Even 'Jackass' fans will be left unsatisfied.

I laughed like a hyena during the movie: It's liberating to be told - implicitly - that for 90 minutes you don't have to worry about real-world consequences.

A lazy summer romp in the "Meatballs" tradition with a handful of "Jackass"-style stunts as the scantiest of hooks.

Action Point's nostalgia sunglasses are tinted, but not as dark as they could be, and certainly not clear enough to offer a look at any subtext, even when it's right in front of the filmmakers' faces.
June 1, 2018
A woefully unfunny comedy that's clearly been reverse-engineered to showcase ostensibly amusing (but not really) displays of bodily harm.
