The Point Break remake unleashes the extreme with its 2nd trailer

09.17.2015

A young FBI agent infiltrates an extraordinary team of extreme sports athletes he suspects of masterminding a string of unprecedented, sophisticated corporate heists. Inspired by the classic 1991 film, director Ericson Core looks to take the stunts to more extreme heights with this second trailer.

Judging by the reactions to the first trailer, it doesn't sound like many people are on board with this remake. Not that I can blame them, as it looks like a pretty generic "extreme sports" showcase. Unfortunately, it's also taking up the name of one of the most fun and beloved action flicks of yesteryear that had a group of actors we all loved to see together. Warner Bros. may have sought to create a popcorn movie in the same vein as the original, but it looks as though the comparisons will ultimately hurt its box office chances, especially given what else we be in theaters come this Christmas.

POINT BREAK hits theaters this Christmas.

Looks terrible. None of the actor have personality or charisma. And the aqua green color scheme is off putting. This pointless remake is gonna flop at the box office.

It wont Point Break the Box Office.

No thanks. Looks absolute garbage. Ray Winston doing his usual grizzly accent.
Studio Execs: 'Yeh lets take the original, make it more EXTREME with the use of modern day cgi and chuck some bullshit motive like Enlightenment in there, the audience will love it' .

This looks like an okay XXX reboot, but a down right shitty Point Break one.

This looks quite alright actually but that guy lacks the charms of Keanu Reeves' Johnny Utah.

SPOILERS: There will be a scene at the end where the undercover cop shot his guns to the air instead of aiming it at the criminal who became his friend. The scene will probably play out a little differently than the original, but whatever.

First trailer was better!

This is more ridiculous and cgi stuffed. But I want to see it, even when I'm fan of the original. It's kind of weird because the original F&F was a Point Break ripoff with cars, and now the "remake" of PB looks like another Furious chapter.

Not sure if anyone will get the reference:

The stunts look to be the ONLY saving grace of this movie. And that's really too bad since I actually like some of the actors here. I feel like they took all the wrong cues from the first movie. If Keanu Reeves' bland presence and stilted acting were part of the appeal, get an even more bland actor with even less presence. I could honestly keep going, but what's the point?

Looks alright

It's obvious that it'll never be as good as the original, but it may turn out decent enough.

I don't necessaily hate this movie but I can't stand the fact that it's supposed to be Point Break when there seems to be so little in common with it. The original is a classic bro movie and these actors seem to have the personality of wood.

This turd can go suck an egg

This looks horrible... I can't wait for it to make 2M while Star Wars rakes in all the holiday season cash. How this got a holiday release and not a September release is beyond me. Whoever scheduled this needs to be fired.

I honestly think Ray Winstone is one of the best things this movie's got going for it. He's got that same larger-than-life persona that Busey had in the first movie.

Sorry HoyleHaw. Couldn't disagree with you more. He always plays the same part and has nothing on Busey. He was only ever good in one movie and that was probably because it was the first movie I saw him in, when I didn't realise he was playing himself.

Yeah.....no

I didn't find either of the actors particularly intriguing, and this story about them being "Robin Hood" and giving to the poor is a lame addition to the story. The stunts look cool, so maybe as a rental or when it comes out on Netflix.

It looks like a better film than the first but the original wasn't popular because it was good but because of its stars.

Um what? It's generally regarded as a good movie, it might be dated since 91, but it wasn't just popular for it's stars. And this remake looks like direct to video crap.

Maybe it was popular to you for the actors, and they are a big part of what made it work, but a lot of people would disagree with you that the movie wasn't popular for being good. I do get if you personally didn't like it. It's that kind of movie.
