In all of its cheesy, dated splendor I don’t count the original Point Break as untouchable property. We’re not going to stop the avalanche of film remakes, no matter how solidified we are in our pessimism and pouting, and since this newest pointless regurgitation is just trying to clear a low-B bar, I say we strap on a board made of hope and give that avalanche a wicked intense ride. If nothing else, Delroy Lindo and Ray Winstone might give this rehasing a certain thrilling thespian edge over the original typecast collection. And, really, isn’t a no-holds-barred extreme sports plotline better suited for a post-X Games, post-Fast & Furious culture, one with 500% as many eXtreme activities to muck around with and a better idea on how to compose those sequences?
In the end, it can’t get any more average.
