Posted 2015/12/13 4847 0

Point Break (2015) is a remake of the 1991 surf-heist classic of the same name, which starred two prestigious actors Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves. However, Point Break won't make you disappoint with its intense, real stunts.

Point Break updates the story of FBI agent Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey) who infiltrates an extraordinary team of extreme sports athletes he suspects of masterminding a string of unprecedented, sophisticated corporate heists. Deep undercover, and with his life in danger, he strives to prove these athletes are the architects of the mind-boggling crimes that are devastating the world's financial markets. But in the process, Utah realizes that they are not as he thought. In an effort “to disrupt international financial markets”, they’re also pulling a Robin Hood during some of these stunts, redistributing American wealth to the poor around the world in the process. In an early scene, two gigantic blocks of banknotes are made to rain on a Mexican village in a plane heist-turned skydiving mission. Puzzlingly enough, the robbers don’t appear to have kept a dollar.

Filmed in four continents, North America, Europe, South America and Asia, "Point Break" presents extraordinary feats performed by the world's top extreme sports athletes, and involves some of the most daring exploits ever committed to film. Extreme sports featured include snowboarding, wingsuit flying, free rock climbing, high-speed motocross, and surfing 70-foot waves.

Two actors replacing Keanu Reeves và Patrick Swayze in this remake are Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez. Luke Bracey is a rising star in Hollywood with many remarkable roles. Last Fall, the Australian actor spurt with two leading roles. In November Man, he stars a CIA agent alongside Pierce Brosnan. After that, Luke footsteps Ryan Gosling and Liam Hemsworth to play the male lead in The Best of Me, a film based on Nicholas Sparks' book. And what else? After Charlie Hunnam pulled out of Fifty Shades of Grey, Luke was one of the many hunky men rumored to have screen tested for the role. Edgar Ramirez is one of the new impressive male actors in Hollywood. The Venezuelan actor starred with Jennifer Lawrence in the movie Joy of director David O. Russell which will be released in this Christmas. In early 2016, Edgar will star as legendary boxer Roberto Duran in Hands of Stone with Robert De Niro. Besides, Edgar Ramirez is also involved in the filming of a drama thriller movie named Gold of director Stephen Gaghan starring Matthew McConaughey and Michelle Williams.

Point Break is the last action blockbuster of this year, and it obviously does its job well, helping the audience end the year with satisfaction.
