Kudos to the studio head who dared to put very expensive 3D cameras in the hands of Johnny Knoxville and his Jackass cohorts. Though the self-inflicted antics of this band of pranksters may be an acquired taste, there's no denying that Jackass 3D utilized the technology in a way that was as groundbreaking as it was organic.
The film employs a lot of slow motion—including an opening scene where the main players are painfully assaulted with various objects—in order to show off the technology's capabilities. In true Jackass fashion, the boys claim to have received the go-ahead to shoot in 3D after showing studio execs their "Heli-cockter" stunt, in which Chris Pontius operates a remote-controlled helicopter that has been attached to his penis.
