They May All Be Over 45, Yet It’s Like They’re Still In Their Twenties

For those who watch WWE and see their favorite stars, The Undertaker, for example, you may get the same thrill of seeing them on screen, but with their bodies battered and bruised, they move slower, the risks are more calculated, and it’s just not the same. That isn’t the case with the Jackass crew. If anything, they go bigger, harder, bring in guests, like Machine Gun Kelly and Tyler The Creator, and have them join in.

Also, they give the young guys a run for their money. This isn’t to say Pontius, Steve-O, and Knoxville compete with the young ones and show them they can still take a hit, but they make it even. For every time Knoxville gets hit by a bull, or Steve-O does something which leads him to vomiting on camera, a newcomer gets repeatedly stung by a scorpion, in the face, bit by a snake, in the face, or kiss a taser.

So, for those who grew up on Jackass, you get a lot of what you’re used to, and it is just as funny, stupid, disgusting, and frightening to watch.

Replay And Slow-Mo

Let me tell you something, I don’t know who invented replay and slow-mo, but Jackass Forever makes use of it in a way that feels masterful. It helps you understand the impact when a cast member is hit in the testicles, while wearing a cup, with a fist, hockey puck, softball, and more. It makes seeing someone’s launch off a ramp, before hitting the dirt, as artistic as a pretentious Oscar-bait movie and really drives home that this should not be tried at home.

The Variety

There are just so many stunts and pranks. You have a slap game featuring Steve-O and Machine Gun Kelly, cycling to not be hit by a giant hand. Also, there is Tyler The Creator trying not to get shocked, alongside people tap dancing, barefoot, on an electrified floor. Then there is the dumping of gallons of pig ejaculation fluid on someone while they think they are being interviewed. Clearly, they wanted fans to have options. Yes, some are more disgusting than others, others are just simple pranks, and then there are ones that make you grimace as people get the kind of concussions that freak out their castmates.

Time Flies

You may think you’d grow accustomed to watching these men, and one woman, hurt themselves and each other or the gross-out humor, which often features penises and testicles being bruised and bleeding. However, that doesn’t happen. In fact, when the credits start rolling, you’ll be checking your phone, asking where the time went? It’s like going down a YouTube black hole watching this, and no matter what happens, you can’t look away, for you get completely mesmerized.

Overall

Our Rating: Positive (Worth Seeing)Recommended

Members of the Jackass crew including Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Party Boy Chris, and more

Jackass Forever, by no means, is trying to win over new fans. It’s for long time fans and the curious who want to see some of the living OGs of amateur stunts and pranks show off what they can do while putting on the next generation. Which they do, and more than any horror remake, requel, or revival of any franchise under the Disney banner, Jackass Forever delivers what its fans want and doesn’t leave you the slightest bit disappointed.
