Did You Know?


Chris Taylor, a business executive at Largo Entertainment, the production company that made the original Point Break, acquired the rights to remake the film after the business folded. He later partnered with Alcon Entertainment to develop the remake script over a 3-year period with writer Kurt Wimmer and director Ericson Core. See more »


Angel Falls is 3,212 feet (980 m) tall. Jumping from the top of the falls would kill a person. Due to the height of the fall a person would reach terminal velocity (130 miles per hour/209 kilometres per hour). The chance of surviving would be minuscule as at those speeds water won't compress. It would be like hitting a brick wall at 130mph/209kmph. You might be able to survive by pointing your toes and going straight in, but you would break every bone in your feet, legs, hips, and probably your back as it compresses. See more »

Nonsensical plot accompanied by visual splendor of world's most extreme corners.
3 December 2015 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

Imagine the intense stunts from energy drink commercial or Youtube extreme sport montage while music from Mad Max blares on background. This is where the second coming of Point Break truly excels. When it hits just the right velocity, it's bloody breathtaking. Unfortunately, the narrative is not only poor, it nearly sabotages the movie like a broken parachute.

Story revolves around Utah (Luke Bracey), an FBI trainee as he investigates a series of heists and their connection to a group of athletes led by Bodhi (Édgar Ramírez). As one might expect, it follows the same trail that Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze has placed. The new leads do what they can, although it's better to watch this without comparing, because it certainly doesn't have the same caliber of star or chemistry.

The plot then dives head first into uncharted territory. It's littered with so much "save the planet" preachy acts as the writing struggles to place FBI agent in the hippie nirvana angle. The motivation is just a mess of random vague one-liners, even the on-screen characters are perplexed by it. There's a romance subplot, but this is mainly to show the attractive Teresa Palmer as eye candy for several short scenes.

The movie is actually better when they just show the crazy sequences instead of forcing its lackluster story. It has plethora of impressive feats, from high heaven wingsuit flying, the climb on hazardous urban streets and natural cliffs, to the surfing of gigantic waves. This is the level of stunt choreography xXx and Fast and Furious wish they had.

When camera pans into the right angle and lighting, as the sounds is muffled by throbbing tune of the fast music, Point Break reaches the zenith. It's miles beyond what typical action flick could offer, but sadly it's repeatedly interrupted by the shoddy story, which feels like an excuse to fly across the globe to do random cool tricks.

If viewed only on the grand mix of cinematography and choreography, Point Break is exquisite, this would have been a great documentary of extreme sport. However, as action movie, the story is so pretentious, it simply serves as speed bump to hamper the thrill.
