Real Dangerous Stunts, 10 Stars for that alone. (by metallipowerman5000)
First off, this movie was NOT a remake, let's get that clear right now. Point Break 2015 is an Extreme Sports movie, with a "re-imagining" of the Point Break plot thrown in. The fact that most of the Action Scenes were REAL, that alone is mind blowing. The extreme risks these guys took to film Alone was worth 10 stars. The story was typical and plain, and the acting from Utah and Bodhi were Good. If you want to see Breath Taking scenery like NOTHING ELSE, with the plot to Point Break thrown in the middle, go see this. Just don't go in with expectations, except for Tons of <more>
adrenaline junkie sports and amazing shots. It's a fun movie, and a fun ride, nothing less, nothing more.
I liked it. Sure a lot of things are not realistic in the movie, but it is a movie, it is not necessarily supposed to represent reality. For those who like extreme sports this will be an amazing ride, for anyone else, just get your popcorn and enjoy it.The visuals are very nice, the music is on point.Do I believe anything they say in this movie? Of course not. But then again, if I wanted reality, I could have read an autobiography, a science book or watched a documentary or simply go out into the world or look at my own life. My advice, get popcorn, or nachos, or both even better and enjoy <more>
Exceeded my expectations! But not appreciated by many (by fdiorico)
Normal people who dread of the thought of extreme sports won't appreciate this movie. I've read many bad reviews and I'm sure it's coming from those who don't understand people who do extreme sports.Fortunately, I'm an extreme polysports aficionado myself from rock climbing to freediving and even skiing and downhill mountain biking. I'm not as extreme as these redbull athletes are but I know and understand what goes through their minds and why they do it. Normal people just won't understand. That's why this movie is so awesome! It really pays respect to <more>
different extreme sports. It's more a tribute to all extreme athletes. There were so many in the film including Chris Sharma. This alone already makes this film super awesome! Those who rated it bad either don't know those athletes or just plain puss***.
extreme-sports rebels turned deadly - an entertaining abstract action cautionary tale (by Yelitza-screenwriting-student)
So many terrible reviews! Why such negativity? I've seen this film 9 times and counting. It's so beautiful. It's cinematic poetry! Point Break is a cautionary tale because the eco-warriors rebellion only leads to destruction of others and self. It's the paradox of humankind - good and wicked all in one. Please watch with an open mind! Also, I find the extreme-sports-nature sequences breathtaking and beautiful and full of high energy action. There are also some inspiring ideals along the way: "the break point, the point where fear becomes master and you the slave..." <more>
I understand Core's approach and Kurt Wimmer's screen-writing logic: a story of friendship with a crazy philosophical twist and rebellion turned into criminal. The natural wonders are fantastic! Huge surf waves, Alps, and Angel Falls. Yes I'm biased... I'm from Venezuela, and I think Edgard Ramirez did a spectacular job with his character and Angel Falls are magnificent! Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah is heartfelt and charismatic. Roach, Chowder, Grommet, Pappas, and Samsara were great too. All straightforward and minimal dialogue. Did you know that the climbing of Auyantepui was real? The line and bolts were digitized out, but it was and experience of a lifetime for these climbers. Chris Sharma, Peter Croft, and Dany Andrada were the stunt doubles. The behind-the-scenes video is astounding! One big mistake? To have marketed this movie as a remake of Point Break 1991: it's inspired by it but another story. And yes, there are problems with the plot and character development, but that's because the focus is on the visual story more than dialogue. Another major problem is that the writing and the dialogue lines are too abstract and metaphoric and ambiguous. It's not clear at times what Bodhi means or what Johnny Utah wants. I think I got it and I enjoyed the film, but I can see how it can be confusing to audiences. Teresa Palmer's lines too are full of philosophical ideas that sound abstract as well. In this version, Bodhi is a protégé of Osaki, a fictionalized eco-warrior with the idea of saving Earth by performing 8 ordeals this is the fiction . But Osaki was killed by a whaling ship when he was "giving back"... Later, Bodhi follows Osaki's steps, but he has taken the wrong path. Bohdi wants to accomplish his 8-ordeals to become one with the Earth and give back through criminal/sabotage acts. However, there's good in Bodhi, for he saves Utah's life for some unknown compassionate reason ?? . Perhaps Osaki saved Bodhi's life once just like in Utah's situation? It would've been great to see the setup story for Bodhi as well. Yet, Bodhi is determined and he doesn't care he is killing people and destroying assets when he "gives back to Earth."Without the crime, these guys would be extreme-sports crusaders for mother Earth's wonders: which would be a whole different story - perhaps I'll write a new Point Break screenplay inspired by this version of Point Break I'm a screen writing student . Then we have Johnny Utah, a former extreme-sports turned FBI agent, but we don't learn why he specifically joins the FBI. The film would have benefited from additional minutes to set up the characters better and explore their deeper emotional motives. That's what's lacking. Utah goes undercover to find out why these extreme-athletes are committing crimes, only to get too involved to be able to stop them: part of Utah relishes in the chaos and he enters into a conflict with himself. Utah however, is the perfect agent to pursue the extreme-sports criminals. But his longing for the sport and his gratitude to Bodhi are stronger than his FBI mission. And worse yet for the mission: Utah has a soft-heart and Bodhi knows that. Utah owes him his life. Utah is in a great dilemma - apprehend and kill the very person that saved his life?In the end, the power of gratitude and kindness prevails in Utah. And he gets back his passion for life. And the bad guys find their fate...Enjoy. Best wishes.
Got what I wanted. Solid action flick. (by OldManCodger)
My attitude changed very quickly watching this "remake". First, I was surprised pleasantly with some new fresh faces on the screen. OK, maybe they don't have their full acting "chops" yet, but they do a very nice job of building decent characters and showing the tension and caring in their relationships. Luke Bracey, does a nice job with Johnny Utah and is sure to be the new heart throb for the ladies. I have a hard time with Edgar Ramirez, who struggles a bit with Bodhi, but he comes across well when it counts.I thought the storyline actually tries hard to provide a <more>
fresh take on the original, but it probably tries a little too hard. The plot gets outlandish in places and veers away from the original, but gets a B+ for making the effort and ties it up OK at the end. It's pretty much what you would want in a hard core action movie. I will say there are a couple of romantic twists and turns that prove eventually to be fairly arresting.But there is one area where this movie just blew the original away. The extreme sports scenes are almost shocking. One scene literally felt like I was in it and had me totally freaked out it was so frightening. Let's just say it's a skydiving sequence that unless you are an extreme athlete, you think something has gone very, very, wrong. The surfing scenes may be the best thing about the movie in itself. There is something about 80 ft. waves and those that ride them that evokes a kind of primal majesty. And then of course there is a rock climbing scene that is still giving me nightmares.The bottom line here is that this Point Break is it's own movie. Yes, it borrows from the original, and uses the name, but that really doesn't even factor in here. This is Point Break for 2015 and it works for me. The new actors and the insane extreme sport sequences taken together puts it's own shine on what we remember as a great movie, and makes it better.
The stunts in this film are one of the best. This alone makes the movie worthwhile to see and indulge. The film also has exceptional cinematography with setting like surfing in the middle of the ocean, Angel falls and the Alps.The story is average but they have something to tell, just listen to the lines and they have some philosophical points and some original ideas. The acting is passable.But most of all this is a fun movie. Parties. Half naked bodies. Cameo by one of the famous DJs, snowboarding, motorbikes, para gliding. Academic people who are cynical of this lifestyle should just stay <more>
Taking the original and upping the ante on stunts and cinematography (by Ragnaroker)
Memories of an 80's or early 90's cult classic can often cloud your judgment when a reboot or remake comes on to the scene. I have to be honest with myself, the original isn't a work of art and it doesn't age well. After recently watching the 1991 version, it was obvious that my memory of the movie was way better than the actual thing. While the campiness and bad acting might have worked when I was a young teenager, it now feels like a self-parody. Let's jump to present day. It's apparent from the opening scene that the new version of "Point Break" is trying <more>
to have it's own identity. The motocross scene immediately grabs hold of you and squeezes till your left breathless when they make their jump of the cliff. Knowing that this is REAL stunt work and not special effects is what really makes this a fun action movie. It's the same reason why we watch Jackie Chan movies because we know he's putting himself on the line in his fight and stunt sequences. People often compare fight sequences as a dance / art. I believe that it's the same for surfing, motocross, snowboarding and wing suit flying. And the great cinematography really amplify those moments in the film. When it comes to the story, I expected as much as an action movie was going to give. I will say that the new version of Point Break tries to create layers that were not in the original film. But the bar is low enough that practically anything is an improvement from the original storyline. But regardless, it kept me interested since I already knew how the movie was going to end. The journey was slightly different for the characters so it was fun watching a new take on it. As for the acting, they aren't trying to reinvent Reeves or Swayze. While that is a good thing, it also has it's drawbacks. Perhaps because I am now "grown up", I don't care for the campiness and less-than-stellar acting of the original. The new faces in this version of the movie do a good job but they don't have the same dynamic or charisma as Reeves or Swayze. But what they do establish a thousand times better is their kinship. The bro-love of the original feels paper thin but in the new movie feels organic and realistic. Overall, this is supposed to be a fun movie to sit down with your popcorn and just go along for the ride. I don't want it to be the original "Point Break" but I'm not expecting Citizen Kane. It's an action movie that entertains. Watching the stunt sequences alone was worth the price of admission. When I'm watching a movie like this, I want to say, "Whoa" out loud during action sequences and this movie does not disappoint.
I write this review only because I saw a whole bunch of negative reviews about POINT BREAK 2015 .First of all, it was a visual delight, Edge of the seat, Adventure movie.Yes, the plot isn't very logical, but to me the cinematography coupled with the breath taking adventure sports/stunts made up for the lack of decent plot.I spent a no holds barred, very entertaining 114 mins in Theatre and that's tat.MUST See, especially in 3D for a marvelous experience
The most important part of this movie is that instead of using "computer" and CGI effects they use real athletes who defied death everyday (by lauraradu-84801)
I went to this movie without big expectation. I was not expecting a good written plot, I was not expecting some great acting or some moving monologues. I was expecting a Fast and Furious movie with extreme sports instead of powerful cars. So watching this movie with this mindset I can say the locations were impressive and the way the extreme scenes were filmed is amazing. The most important part of this movie is that instead of using "computer" and CGI effects they use real athletes who defied death everyday.The movie features the best of the world's action sports athletes as <more>
