I want to think that I’d be kinder to this film if it wasn’t called Point Break. Instead, maybe call it XXX 3.0. That would make more sense.
The good news is that they’ve at least kept (a version) of the president masks. The bad news is that other than the fact that Luke Bracey is named Johnny Utah and Edgar Ramirez is named Bodhi, it just doesn’t look or feel like it’s namesake. Don’t get me wrong. it looks like a better than average action heist, just not Point Break.
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 string of staggering crimes that kill innocent people and send the world’s economy into a tailspin.
Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the callous architects of these inconceivable crimes.
The film is replete with the most daring athleticism ever seen in a motion picture. These action adventure feats are performed by extreme athletes representing the world’s best in class in big-wave surfing, wingsuit flying, sheer-face snowboarding, free rock climbing, and high-speed motorcycling.
