Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “A daredevil designs and operates his own theme park with his friends.

Johnny Knoxville stars as D.C., the crackpot owner of a low-rent, out-of-control amusement park where the rides are designed with minimum safety for maximum fun. Just as D.C.’s estranged teenage daughter Boogie comes to visit, a corporate mega-park opens nearby and jeopardizes the future of Action Point. To save his beloved theme park and his relationship with his daughter, D.C. and his loony crew of misfits risk everything to pull out all the stops—and stunts.”

Secular Movie Critics
…As post-“Jackass” movies go, Action Point makes more of an effort to sandwich some plot between the literally painful slapstick comedy, but if you love that formula — Knoxville falls off something, or into something, or has something projected at him, making him wince and then deliver his famous high-pitched giggle — you’ll want a ticket to ride. …
Alonso Duralde, The Wrap
…“Action Point” is ultimately more interested in telling a story about a pretty nice dad who becomes a somewhat nicer dad. …
Jesse Hassenger, The A.V. Club
…Presumably intended for “Jackass” fans desperately in search of a plot, “Action Park” makes a typical episode of America's Funniest Home Videos look sophisticated by comparison. …
Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
…Johnny Knoxville's uniquely idiotic brand of self-abusive stunts… As with the kind of concussion-inducing rides featured in the movie, thrill-seekers ought to know what they’re in for and are strongly encouraged to proceed at their own risk.
Peter Debruge, Variety
…the inventive, stake-raising, borderline surrealist gags of the old “Jackass” are gone…
Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times
…There are so few laughs in this thing that it’d have been a shame had somebody gotten hurt making us laugh at their pain. …
