Point Break (2015)

Remake of the 1991 Swayze-Reeves-Bigelow crime drama. An FBI agent infiltrates a gang of extreme sports enthusiasts (surfers aren't extreme enough in the 21st Century) suspected of masterminding a string of unprecedented, sophisticated corporate heists.

Confirming exactly what the multiple delays and lack of advance media fanfare indicated, this film is terrible. A series of extreme sports scenes tied together with a silly, nonsensical storyline, it boasts scenes of snowboarding, wingsuiting, surfing, dirt biking and rock climbing. But none of those sequences are filmed anywhere well enough to justify how pointless this film is without them, as director Ericson Core frames everything too tightly and cuts too quickly to ever allow much scope or excitement making it to the screen. Far greater thrills can be found watching GoPro footage on YouTube.

What weighs the characters down is not their parachutes or rock-climbing gear, but their sententious First World guilt and bland casting; gone is the free-spirited fun of Kathryn Bigelow's cult-hit original.

Basically a cavalcade of extreme sports, but with less drama than a highlight reel.

Nowhere does Mr. Core's film approach the action-movie chops or psychological smarts of Ms. Bigelow's original.

It could just as easily have been a XXX relaunch or a Fast and Furious episode.

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.

Strips the silly fun and relatively straight-ahead narrative from the original for a humorless, if photogenic spin on extreme crime.
