Even a movie with some seriously heightened action like “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” has to have some believable stunts when you get up close and personal with stars like Channing Tatum and Dwayne Johnson. That’s why you have those guys doing many of the key stunts themselves.
In this exclusive featurette, the people behind the “G.I. Joe” sequel talk about how they brought characters like Roadblock and Duke to life and made it look real enough to believe.
“It’s great for me, just in terms of action,” Johnson says in the featurette, “because we’re able to not only firing weapons, but also hand-to-hand combat, whether it’s taking baton and striking somebody in the face or taking a knife, utilizing his vest that was specifically made for him.”
“G.I. Joe: Retaliation” will be available for digital download starting tomorrow, July 16, and on Blu-ray and DVD two weeks later.
