Movie Review – Point Break (2016)

8 February 2016 2:04 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Point Break, 2016.

Directed by Ericson Core.

Starring Édgar Ramírez, Luke Bracey, Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer and Delroy Lindo.

Synopsis:

A young FBI agent infiltrates a group of athletes he believes is responsible for a series of intricate robberies around the world.

Many of us have fond memories of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 thriller-slash-bromance (not least Edgar Wright, who lovingly lampooned it in 2007’s Hot Fuzz), but it’s hard to imagine this uninspired remake evoking that same sense of nostalgia for anyone in 15 years time. Admittedly, if you’re looking for a slice of disposable Friday night entertainment, you could do a lot worse, but if you’re looking for anything more substantial or satisfying than that, you will be left disappointed.

While this remake mostly sticks to the arc of the original film, there are a few minor tweaks. In this film, Johnny Utah starts off as an extreme sports athlete, »

Point Break review

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 – an empty rehash

7 February 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Even Ray Winstone can’t save this adrenaline-fuelled but shallow remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 classic

“Have you ever fired your gun up in the air and gone, ‘Aaaaaaaargh!?”’ Nick Frost asks Simon Pegg in Hot Fuzz, referencing an iconic Keanu Reeves moment from Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 crime-and-surfing classic Point Break. Inevitably, Pegg gets to do just that, replaying the scene to oddly touching comic effect. Now, Luke Bracey gets to do it too, in this adrenaline-fuelled but empty rehash that flies close enough to Bigelow’s movie to remind you how much you’d much rather be watching the original.

Watch: Award-Winning Comedy 'Barney Thomson' is the Most Scottish Film of 2016

4 February 2016 11:29 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Gravitas Ventures Acquires Serial Killer Comedy 'Barney Thomson' For the new crime comedy "Barney Thomson,"  Glasgow native Robert Carlyle sits in the director's chair for the very first time and takes us home with him. The movie, which stars Carlyle as the titular Thomson, also features Emma Thompson and Ray Winstone. In what looks to be a riff on "Sweeney Todd," "Barney Thomson" follows a Glasgow barber who quickly finds himself in the comically grotesque and absurd world of serial killers. Richard Cowan and Colin McLaren wrote the adaptation based on Douglas Lindsay's "The Barbershop Seven" book series. The film debuted at the Edinburgh Film Festival last year and won the Best Film prize at the BAFTA Scotland Awards, with Thompson named Best Actress. The comedy finally his U.S. theaters on March 11. Watch the trailer above.  »

‘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.
