They’re back! The boys from the MTV hit Jackass have returned with a new movie called Jackass 3D. If you’re afraid to know what these guys will do with 3D cameras you should be. They put them to good use…in the worse possible way. Johnny Knoxville, once again leads the group as they perform ridiculous stunts that include animals, feces, flying dildos, and more feces.
Check out the review…
- Director: Jeff Tremaine
- Cast: Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Ryan Dunn, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Spike Jonze, Jason “Wee-Man” Acuna, Preston Lacy, Dave England, Ehren McGhehey
- Cinematography By: Lance Bangs, Dimitry Elyashkevich, Rick Kosick
This is Jackass. There is no plot. It’s just a bunch of guys doing crazy and disturbing stunts all for the sake of a laugh. If you’ve ever seen an episode of the show, or watched the previous movies you’d know this. If not, that’s what you’re in for: distasteful action shot gorilla-style.
- The 3D: They actually used 3D cameras to shoot this film and it shows. The images were clear, comprehensible, and sharp. Of course, the technologically is used for the worst things imaginable like dildo archery, penis T-ball, and the infamous “pee-cam.”
- The Opening/Closing: One of the best parts of all three Jackass films is their opening and closing sequences. Those segments are actually choreographed and shot in a cinematic way. It’s about as artsy as you’re going to get from these guys and it was great. The use of slow motion and 3D really made it funny from beginning to end.
- The Gang’s All Here!: Even though it’s been several years since the last film, there’s no change in the cast’s dynamic. The chemistry is still there, the personalities are the same, nothing has changed. It’s just like the good old days.
The Sort of Bad:
- The Stunts: The stunts were funny, which is why they’re classified as “Sort of Bad.” The problem is that there were a few that just weren’t good. In the previous film almost every skit was a winner but here there were several that were lackluster. They could and should have been cut.
To this day, the best installment in the Jackass film series in my opinion is Jackass Number Two. The first one was good, the second was great, and the third is also good. Not great, not amazing, not fantastic but good. It’s worth seeing, and if you’re into the Jackass series, you’ll enjoy the movie.
Jackass 3D opens nationwide on October 15th.
