Reboots, reboots, and more reboots.
The latest one is a remake of the 1991 classic Point Break with the new version keeping the same name. Instead of Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves, we have Edgar Ramirez and Luke Bracey; and instead of director Kathryn Bigelow, there is Ericson Core.
If this film wasn’t a remake of a film, it may have a chance, but judging from the first trailer, it looks like it wants to be something different and modern so badly. The action is hokey and it looks like a poor knock-off of Fast & Furious or a Dwayne Johnson movie, and it doesn’t help that either of the lead isn’t that big of a name.

"Point Break" is no longer just about eco-terrorism and surfing. It's about eco-terrorism and surfing, motocross, base jumping, snowboarding, skydiving and all other manner of "extreme sports." The Ericson Core-helmed new reboot of the 25-year-old film -- which was originally directed by Kathryn Bigelow -- stars your new boyfriends Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez as Johnny Utah and Bodhi, respectively. "These aren't normal people sir," Bracey's character reports in this new 2-minute-plus trailer, the first look at the film. That's beautiful, Johnny. The action-crime flick will be out Christmas Day, Dec. 25. The 1991 original starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. »

Bank-robbing extreme athletes are back on the big screen in the "Point Break" remake trailer!
Heaps of money falling from the sky, skydiving, snowboarding, motocross, surfing (naturally!) and a few billion dollars of gold are just some of the things going on in this (possibly epic?) trailer.

The Point Break that you know and love, featuring Patrick Swayze as a surfer/criminal mastermind and Keanu Reeves as the undercover agent who infiltrates his gang, is getting a face-lift this Christmas with the remake. This time, Edgar Ramirez is in the part of Bodhi and The Best of Me's Luke Bracey is FBI agent Johnny Utah, and the first trailer will at least please the action junkies (or, uh, the stunts junkies). The plot is generally the same - Utah infiltrates Bodhi's gang, who use their extreme sport prowess to pull off high-stakes heists, but everything is just a bit more 2015. The stunts are bigger, the sports more extreme - as Keanu would say: whoa. »
As in the 1991 original, Point Break follows FBI agent Johnny Utah – this time played by Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe Retaliation) – as he goes undercover, snowboarding, rock-climbing, parachuting, and of course surfing his way through his latest investigation alongside suspect Bodhi (Zero Dark Thirty’s Édgar Ramírez).
Pushing familiar themes of brotherhood, betrayal, and… explosions, the remake's trailer feels like the original had a baby with The Fast and the Furious franchise – and you know what? We’re kind of okay with that.
Point Break is directed by Ericson Core, written by Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium), and also stars Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Ray Winstone (The Departed). It plays in Cineplex theatres on December 25.

Check it out below. Plot: A young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill seeking elite athletes, led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a string of staggering crimes that kill innocent people and send the world.s economy into a tailspin. Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the callous architects of these inconceivable crimes. The new movie is directed by Ericson Core (Invincible) from a script by Kurt Wimmer (Law Abiding Citizen). It co-stars Ray Winston (playing Gary Busey's role from the original) and is set »
That is some serious stuff. The new trailer for Point Break was released on Tuesday, May 26, and it looks even more extreme than the 1991 original. In the remake, Australian hunk Luke Bracey (The Best of Me) plays undercover FBI agent Johnny Utah, replacing Keanu Reeves in the classic role. His opponent Bodhi is portrayed by Edgar Ramirez, who replaces the late Patrick Swayze as the philosophical, thrill-seeking criminal genius. The teaser opens with a jetliner soaring through the clouds. Suddenly, two men hiding in the aircraft [...] »
The first full trailer for the Point Break remake has been released - complete with sky diving, rock climbing and surfing.
Gerard Butler was originally attached to play Bodhi in the project, but was replaced due to scheduling conflicts before production began.
Point Break opens on Christmas Day in the Us and January 8, 2016 in the UK. »
So, Point Break has been remade. We all thought that it might just be a bad dream, but it looks like thry’ve actually gone and done it. The star-power is somewhat limited in this remake of the classic Patrick Swayze/ Keanu Reeves original (which was released in the summer of 1991), with former Home and Away actor Luke Bracey playing the role of undercover FBI agent Johnny Utah (originally played by Reeves) and Édgar Ramírez (The Bourne Ultimatum, Wrath Of The Titans) playing renegade extreme sports athlete Bodhi (originally played by the late, great Patrick Swayze). These are two potential star-making turns for the undoubtably talented actors. Oh, and for some serious character acting support, the likes of Ray Winstone (Noah), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Delroy Lindo (Ransom) are in the film too.
The original movie largely revolved around surfing and skydiving, but this new version adds to that »

In all the time we've been running Den Of Geek, it would be fair to say that Point Break has been comfortably one of the least popular remake stories we've ever run (well, that and Naked Gun). It would be fair to say that the new take on the Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze-headlined original has not gone down well.
However, you never know, the film itself might turn out to be a treat. We've got here, at the very least, a first glimpse of it to see how it's shaping up.
“Still surfing?” “Every day.”
The film stars Édgar Ramírez (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “The Bourne Ultimatum,” “Carlos the Jackal”) as Bodhi, and Luke Bracey (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “November Man”) as Johnny Utah, along with Ray Winstone (“Noah,” “The Departed”), Teresa Palmer (“Warm Bodies”) and Delroy Lindo (“Sahara,” “Gone in Sixty Seconds”), under the direction of Ericson Core (“Invincible”).
In Alcon Entertainment’s fast-paced, high-adrenaline action thriller Point Break, a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways.

Yes! And...more yes! The first official trailer for the obviously much-needed remake of the 1991 cult-classic action thriller Point Break is out—and it could not look more absurd. Which was the point, right? No one will ever be able to really recapture the magic of Keanu Reeves' performance as FBI agent Johnny Utah, who goes under cover to infiltrate a ring of bank-robbing surfers (or is the other way around?) led by Bodhi, played by a never-more-highlighted Patrick Swayze, in the original directed by future Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow. But this crew is certainly giving it a try! Australian cutie Luke Bracey steps into Keanu's shoes as the rookie agent who cozies up to Bodhi's »
Earlier we got a taste of the adrenaline-fueled action from the upcoming Point Break remake, but that wasn’t enough. Oh no, that was just a tease, and now they’re back with a full trailer that wants to push you right up to the edge and beyond. Dare I say this looks like a dumbed-down version of Point Break? Maybe that’s the wrong phrase, as the first one isn’t actually an intellectual opus (it is one of my all-time favorite movies, however). Overly serious is a much better description. The Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze-starring original from 1991 is fun and campy and riding a wave right out of the late ‘80s. You got the feeling that everyone involved knew they were making a ridiculous movie On the other hand, from what we see here, Point Break 2015 plays everything super straight. There' »
Will the new Johnny Utah at any time say, “I am an F! B! I! Agent!” Will Gary Busey show up for a surprise cameo? Will Danny Butterman approve? None of these questions are answered in the first trailer for the new Point Break, but go ahead and watch it anyway.This new version of the extreme sports criminals action-thriller finds Luke Bracey taking over the Johnny Utah role once occupied by Keanu Reeves, while Edgar Ramirez slips on the wetsuit as Bodhi, formerly played by Patrick Swayze. Once more, Utah is an FBI agent in way over his head, working undercover with a group of thrill-seekers who also like to pull off staggering crimes.Director Ericson Core’s take on the story ups the stakes even higher, with the criminals not limiting themselves to basic bank robberies, but trying truly audacious heists that involve all sorts of different sports to carry them out. »
Edgar Ramirez and Luke Bracey channel their best Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves in the first trailer for “Point Break,” the remake of the classic Kathryn Bigelow 1991 actioner. The action film directed by Ericson Core has Bracey playing Johnny Utah, originally portrayed by Reeves, and Ramirez as philosopher-antagonist Bodhi, memorably played by Swayze in the original. The new film moves from the Southern California surf scene and goes international, with the first trailer teasing such extreme stunts as a skydiving bank heist, as well as action sequences involving snowboarding, base jumping and mountain climbing – all in the name of disrupting the. »

The original film starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze and revolved around an undercover FBI agent who infiltrates a group of surfers moonlighting as bank robbers. This version is similar, except that the group of bank robbers are extreme sports addicts.
“Point Break” bows on Christmas Day.

The first trailer for the Point Break remake finally has dropped, bringing with it a combination of nostalgia and extreme sports sure to warm the hearts of people still pining for the Kathryn Bigelow-directed original starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. As in the original, Point Break centers on a novice FBI agent named Johnny Utah, who goes undercover with a group of rebellious thrill-seekers led by the charismatic Bodhi, to investigate a series of daring crimes… »
Here’s your first Point Break remake trailer, showing off the new version of the 1991 movie that starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. Point Break now features much more than surfing. Indeed, Warner Bros. trumpets that this film has “the most daring athleticism ever seen in a motion picture,” with stunts “performed by elite athletes representing the world’s […]

In 1991, Kathryn Bigelow directed the adrenaline-charged action crime movie “Point Break,” about an FBI agent who goes undercover to catch a gang of bank robbers who may be surfers, starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. It’s become an action crime classic over the last two decades, and sure, it’s an enjoyable film, but do we actually need a remake? Hollywood sure seems to think so. Warner Bros. is releasing “Point Break” later this year, but this main trio is decidedly less sexy than Bigelow, Reeves and Swayze. Then again, everyone’s gotta start somewhere. This new version of “Point Break” focuses on some up-and-comers: Luke Bracey staring in the Keanu Reeves role, and Edgar Ramirez in the Patrick Swayze role. Now, Ramirez is known and celebrated in many circles — he was amazing in Oliver Assayas’ three part “Carlos,” and has done strong supporting work in "Zero Dark Thirty, »

While the original Point Break followed two charismatic leads in Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze amidst some surfing, free-falling and bank-robbing hijinx, the remake directed by Ericson Core is looking to expand on the extreme sports angle a bit. The basis is the same, as a young FBI agent (Luke Bracey) infiltrates an extraordinary team of extreme sports athletes he suspects of masterminding a string of corporate heists. The flick was filmed on four continents and presents feats performed by »
