It's no disaster, but there's still not much point to the remake of Point Break...

Kathryn Bigelow's Point Break was fairly successful when it hit cinemas back in 1991, pitting Keanu Reeves' rookie FBI agent against Patrick Swayze's impossibly cool surfing bank robber in a film that landed with audiences but was largely dismissed by critics.

Its uniquely sensitive spin on macho action movies has led to its reappraisal as a cult classic, thus making this remake pretty much inevitable. Few of us would have predicted that director/cinematographer Ericson Core would convert it into an extreme sports movie, but that's one of the only surprises to be had here.

After a tragic accident, former poly-athlete Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey) leaves the adrenaline junkie scene behind and applies to join the FBI. He's still on probation when he discovers that a daring gang of bank »

‘Point Break’ review: “A huge misfire. Completely pointless”

2 February 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Point Break remake review: High-octane stunts do not a good movie make. Point Break remake review

There’s an argument that the remake of Point Break shouldn’t really exist – believe me, we’ve had it out here at Thn Towers everyday since the project was announced. 25 years have passed since the Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves original graced our screens, which, let’s face it, was nigh on perfect. Perfect script, perfect direction, bromantic action aplenty, great stunts, and one of the best Swayze performances of all time (bar Road House and Dirty Dancing of course). They say that it’s too soon. They say it ain’t right. They say the original is one of those films that should never be remade. Ever. They say, they say. This argument is irrelevant. This Point Break remake review will see it graded and examined on its own merit.
