Why not? We’ve already seen every other remake out there. Why not Point Break? Why not?
Keanu and Swayze first ripped up the shores in 1991 in the original Point Break. That’s right, we’re remaking movies from the 90s now! Anywho, the general premise is that a group of surfers have taken to robbing banks. To stop them, one cop must go undercover and become one of them.
Take out “surfers” and replace it with “street racers” and you have the plot for The Fast and the Furious. Take out “surfers” and replace it with “extreme sports enthusiasts” and you have the plot for the Point Break remake.
It does look exciting and maybe even entertaining. I was not the biggest fan of the original, though I tried a couple of times to watch it. I have a hard time with movies that try to make illegal things look cool. I realize that they get busted in the end, but the entire movie is spent with out hero getting to know and trust the bad guys. Then the bad guy says something deep and meaningful (to him) and suddenly they’re besties. Meh.
I’ll probably wait for Netflix on this one. What about you? Comment me!
