In celebration of the release today of G.I.Joe Retaliation on DVD we have a look at some of the great behind the scenes bonus clips that are included. Check them out after the JUMP and share your thoughts!
The above clip is a behind-the-scenes look at the nuclear summit scene that was shot for the film. Pryce’s capacity for humor is discussed, but the most interesting thing we get to see are shots of swordplay and how quickly that swordplay is accomplished. Pryce is actually interviewed on camera for the clip and notes how fast-paced and adept the sword sequence are within the film, stating “It looks as if you’re looking at a speeded up film.” It’s interesting to see a view of the action sequences from well behind the lenses of the cameras shooting the film. I think audiences often like to think a good percent of the wildest action sequences are accomplished with more than a little help from the cameras, but in G.I. Joe: Retaliation that doesn’t seem to be the case.
