What a difference a couple of decades make. Jackass Forever is the latest from star instigator Johnny Knoxville and his team of guys turned stunt men, and it’s really like nothing we’ve seen before from the team.
Packed with more awkward sincerity than pratfalls, the Johnny Knoxville starring comedy Action Point (which was not screened for critics in advance of its release this weekend) will likely leave fans wistful for the days of Jackass wanting more, and there isn’t much of an audience for this sort of thing outside of those fans.
Opening this weekend in theatres: Matt Damon stars in Clint Eastwood’s emotional drama, Hereafter; Bruce Willis plays an aging CIA agent on the run for his life in the action-comedy, Red; plus a look at the drama Conviction, and Johnny Knoxville’s Jackass 3D.
The last few years have brought movie fans a lot of remakes, whether in the form of TV shows brought to the big screen or just plain, old film retreads. Unfortunately, not very many of those remakes have been worth the trip to the theatre, let alone the celluloid they were filmed on.
