UrbanBridgez.com spoke with Denzel & Ryan and asked them how they trained for the film, the action in the film is out of this world!
Denzel Washington: We trained with a French guy named Oliver who had us train for 2 to 3 months. We had to wait several months before we could even do the good fight scenes.
Ryan Reynolds: These guys are really good at making it look real ugly. The phone booth scene was crazy and of course Denzel and I had a couple of rounds against each other. I even felt at times that I needed to wear an adult diaper before the scenes with Denzel (both laugh)!
