G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra (2009)

Directed by Stephen Sommers


An elite military unit comprised of special operatives known as G.I. Joe, operating out of The Pit, takes on an evil organization led by a notorious arms dealer.

Filmed in 2009 in Prague. Glory Motorworks was came in to help with rider training, vehicle placement and stunt upgrades. The training focused on preparing the lead actor to ride on camera. The motorcycle that our actor was riding was the newest (at the time) incarnation of Indian Motorcycles. This was a fairly large motorcycle, so it was important to have our actor appear comfortable on this machine. For our Prague stunt sequences, we used MV Agusta Brutales that came straight from the Italian factory. The bikes were pretty well equipped stock, but SFX plates were fabricated at our Los Angeles workshop to provide “steps” discretely mounted on the bike. This allowed or stunt performers access point to stand and jump while filming fight scenes.
