Will Smith shared that while working on this film, he decided to perform his stunts without taking the help of stunt doubles. Nevertheless, after doing two action sequences himself, he regretted his decision, saying,

“I started [filming the movie], and I told myself that I was doing all of my stunts. Tom Cruise was just hanging on the side of an airplane at 50. I was like, ‘Man, I am better than Tom Cruise.’ I did like two stunts, and I was like ‘I’m not better than Tom Cruise.’”
