“These aren’t normal people, sir. I believe that like me, the people behind these robberies are extreme athletes…and they don’t care who gets killed in the process.” – Johnny Utah
A piece of our childhoods just drowned in the waves of a a very extreme remake of 1991’s iconic Point Break and it looks like even Keanu Reeves’ debatable acting abilities may be outdone in this flashy new version. Not only does the new Point Break have clips of big wave surfing, there’s also extreme snowboarding, extreme motorcycling, extreme wingsuiting, and probably various other gnarly activities. Luckily Agent Johnny Utah understands the mindsets of Bodhi and his band of criminals because they’re all die-hard adrenaline junkies. A cult classic turned lackluster blockbuster that is far from the “so bad, it’s good” designation, because more than the representation of snowboarding, it’s the bastardization of a beloved early nineties flick. Sigh. Poor Swayze.
