Fight scenes and more...
IGN recently made a visit to the set of G.I. Joe: Retaliation where they spoke with the cast and crew about the film. Here are highlights:
Ray Park on his fight scenes with Byung-hun Lee: "[We] wanted to make (their fights) real. Like it's two brothers fighting, there's a lot of aggression. Instead of flashy-flashy and doing flips in the air, we wanted to tell the story throughout the fight as well. There's a lot of good moves, a lot of great choreography that we worked on."
Dwayne Johnson on the film's big action sequence: "This is the lead in to really a massive action sequence, a third act action sequence. Ripsaw, the fastest tank in the world. Beats a ‘Vette out of the blocks. It's crazy. You can actually see it on YouTube. It's unbelievably fast. So anyway, that leads into an incredible boat chase sequence and then leads into a big final fight at the end. It's a really long extensive sequence that you guys are seeing and this is the beginning of it."
Johnson on playing Roadblock: "There was a lot of latitude and leeway to, again, pay homage to the qualities that made up Roadblock, but also being able to add to that to make it even more interesting and make it fit me more. The great part about this role is there is a slew of bad guys who we have these great action sequences with at the beginning of the movie. Firefly is great, Ray Stevenson. I'm most excited, not necessarily to go toe-to-toe with them, because there is no toe-to-toe with them, but to join Bruce Willis. We've been buddies for some time and to be able to come together like this in this type of role."
