‘Point Break’ (2015) Review

8 June 2016 6:38 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Luke Bracey, Edgar Ramirez, Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer, Matias Varela, Clemens Schick, Tobias Santelmann, Max Thieriot, Delroy Lindo | Written by Rick King, W. Peter Iliff, Kurt Wimmer | Directed by Ericson Core

Now I’m not that adverse to remakes and reboots as some and, if I’m honest, the 1991 version of Point Break is not as special to me as it is to others – in fact Bigelow’s film never really gelled with me, so I approached this redux with a really open mind. Turns out I shouldn’t have bothered!

Taking its cue from Kathryn Bigelow’s original movie, this remake of Point Break once again tells the story of Johnny Utah (Bracey), a young FBI agent who infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez) – who are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways…

Stylish Equals Trailer Sees Nicholas Hoult And Kristen Stewart Find Love In A Hopeless Place

18 April 2016 8:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dystopian setting? Check. Futuristic and sterile aesthetic? Check. A young couple fighting for love? You betcha. For in Drake Doremus’ sci-fi romance Equals, it is Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Kristen Stewart (American Ultra) that find themselves revolting against a totalitarian regime.

But whereas the Ya demographic has been bombarded with tales of cruel dystopias and kingdom-shaking heroines, today’s first trailer sheds a clinical white light on the intimate tenets of Equals. Rooted in a similar world to that of Kurt Wimmer’s Equilibrium, Hoult and Stewart live in a world where all emotion has ostensibly been removed, paving the way for a dour and mind-numbing existence.

But there are fleeting signs of hope within the pure white walls of the facility, and despite the fact that any kind of affection is strictly forbidden, Hoult and Stewart’s relationship begins to flourish in the shadows. Written and directed by Doremus, »

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.
