Every once in a while, you get a really genuinely good feeling about a movie, and that movie for me right now is Johnny Knoxille’s Action Point.
I just got done watching the Deadpool 2 trailer today (which is also fantastic), when I stumbled across this gem. I looked a little more into the production behind this absurd, stunt-filled comedy, and apparently Knoxville insisted that every single stunt in the film is 100% real. No pads, no fluff, no thing. As a result of this, Knoxville apparently suffered four concussions, a broken hand, a torn meniscus, whiplash, and a broken orbital bone in his eye – which caused his fucking eye to fall out of his head.
The biggest source of excitement for me in this trailer though? Mr. Chris Pontius making his glorious comeback. At first we see him as a nonchalant lifeguard, but then we get callbacks to his Wildboyz days when they attempt to lure a squirrel into captivity using Pontius’ nutsack. Insant fucking classic. Action Point has been three years in the making, and I’m looking forward to laughing my ass off when it hits theaters on June 1st.
