For those unfamiliar with the original, Bro Knows Implores you to find it and watch it, because it is awesome. For those of you who think this looks like a Fast and Furious rip off, GO WATCH THE ORIGINAL POINT BREAK CIRCA 1991! The first Fast and Furious is basically a shot for shot rip off of the original Point Break, just with cars instead of surfboards.
Here’s the trailer!
Check out the synopsis!
In Alcon Entertainment’s fast-paced, high-adrenaline action thriller “Point Break,” a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways. Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the architects of this string of inconceivable crimes. Renowned extreme athletes performing stunts in the film include surfers Laird Hamilton, Sebastian Zietz, Makua Rothman, Billy Kemper, Brian Keaulana, Ahanu Tson-dru, Ian Walsh, Laurie Towner, Dylan Longbottom, Albee Layer, Bruce Irons, Tikanui Smith and Tuhiti Humani; snowboarders Xavier De Le Rue, Louis Vito, Christian Haller, Lucas DeBari and Ralph Backstrom; skateboarders Bob Burnquist and Eric Koston; motorcyclists Riley Harper and Oakley Lehman; wingsuit stunt pilots Jon Devore, Julian Boulle, Noah Bahnson, Jhonathan Florez and Mike Swanson, and consultant Jeb Corliss; and free climber Chris Sharma, among others.
Look, this movie might end up being cool, but Point Break isn’t one of those stories that needed a remake, mostly because it has one in the Fast and Furious franchise. The trailer looks kind of cool, and it brings an interesting twist to the old story. Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez look like they might do alright here, but Ramirez will never truly be Bodhi that honor will always belong to Patrick Swayze.
