This summer release is supposed to take some spiritual inspiration from Meatballs - the classic camp-is-awful-and-full-of-pervs Bill Murray movie from the early eighties. There won't likely be anything in Action Point to rival weenie war, but you will see Johnny Knoxville sacrifice his body, not in the name of science, but pop culture.
Before being the ringleader of the Jackass crew, Knoxville had himself shot just like performance artist Chris Burden. But where Burden made art, Knoxville signed with MTV and got famous doing stupid human tricks for the world.
When my present self went back in time to tell my past self that Nazis would be wrestling for control of the country & smoking weed would be legal in nine states in the union, I would have declared myself high (which, subsequently, I am).
Spike Lee is a filmmaker unafraid to open the masses' eyes Clockwork Orange style which his evocative & controversial films. This looks like another wake-up call for the unwoke while also being a battle hymn for the resistance. Fight the power!
