Most everyone has seen the stunts and antics that Johnny Knoxville and his crazy team have pulled. But this time you will get to see them in 3D. “Jackass 3D” has an amazing opening slow mo sequence of punches, kicks, frills and thrills that will have you excited to see what is next. From the tame of a grandpa kissing his granddaughter in public to an attack dog latching onto Knoxville’s bum. To the gross out of Steve-O bungeeing in a porta potty filled with poop and the sweat suit cocktail.
Being Jackass you can only imagine how many gross out factors there are. Not to mention the dangerous. In one skit Knoxville is rammed by a bull and lands so badly and you think his neck is broke, but lucky for him it looked worse then it actually was. These guys face stunts that most people would not ever think of with a sense of calm. Why they do it I still don’t understand, but whatever reasons may be behind it they are still drawing in their audience and everyone seems to still be buying into what they are selling.
Kansas Citian’s will find a former local hero in one of the stunts. Former defensive end for the Kansas City Chiefs, Jared Allen offers his help in the film when he slams Johnny Knoxville not one but twice to the ground in his football stunt. This added a nice touch for any former fans of the NFL player.
Of course “Jackass 3D” is not an academy award winner, if you want to complain about that look at the title and ask yourself why you would expect anything more. It is merely a group of guys having a good time doing crazy mind bending crap. But I still find myself enjoying the crap they throw out. The 3D only made it much more enjoyable. At one point during their skit with bees I found myself swatting some away. Having a “bee phobia” I thought that this was a great stunt in 3D. One of my other favorite moments is watching Bam facing his worse fear of being surrounded by snakes. All in all it was great for many laughs and a few gag moments. Closing the show out with a bang followed by a touching moment of looking back at how this team has grown and changed together. Something that any true Jackass fan will enjoy.
