About the Movie
In "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. Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the architects of this string of inconceivable crimes. The film is replete with the most daring athleticism ever seen in a motion picture. These action adventure feats are performed by elite athletes representing the world's best in class in big-wave surfing, wingsuit flying, sheer-face snowboarding, free rock climbing, and high-speed motorcycling.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Nowhere does Mr. Core's film approach the action-movie chops or psychological smarts of Ms. Bigelow's original or, truth be told, benefit from actors displaying the same charm as her stars.
Rotten: Tedious and overblown - as though the filmmakers were so preoccupied with "updating" the material that they forgot what made it so popular in the first place.
Rotten: Stiff, humorless, tension-free ...
Rotten: This "Point Break" removes almost everything that was special about the 1991 original, and replaces it with a Mountain Dew commercial.
This is basically a different sucky variation of the originally. Hey studios stop trying to ruin my childhood movies by making horrible knock offs.
Another ruined remake from Hollywood
One star is too many
Even before its release, in a focus group I repeatedly gave this movie a thumbs down. Whatever comes after "grasping at straws" is where Hollywood lands in this desperate cult classic remake. It is emotionless, over-sexed and underwhelming. Save yourself the money and watch Red Bull (insert event here), X Games or Lords of Dogtown. Blech.
