    In 1991, the movie 'Point Break' was released. Sure for it's time it was quite a serious movie. In retrospect, hilariously goofy. But only because of the time difference. It is not one of those movies that was forgotten by time. It has it's fans that will always like the movie no matter how stupid it continues to look. I am one of those fans. Just good old fashion, far fetched fun.

    But now the movie is getting a remake. I will surely not being seeing it. Not unless it gets about a 85 on RT, and I am almost possitive (even with what little we have seen) this will not be a good movie. It seems as though all of the cool scenes have already been shown in trailer number one. That is also something that needs to stop happening. Trailers continue to get longer and longer spoiling the movies. Stop that.

    Hollywood! Stop remaking classic movies! Leave them alone!

    This is a terrible idea! I get some remakes are worthwhile; some older movies just didn't have the technology to do what we can today. But this just looks like bad CGI, and b-list acting. I don't get it. I won't be going to see this either. Obviously they are just repackaging this for a younger generation that doesn't know any better. But for those of us that grew up on this movie or saw it as adults, there's just no reason to remake it. Those skydiving scenes in the original were awesome to me. I'll take that any day over this trumped up, glossy CGI nonsense.

    Yea, I agree. Are filmmakers so desperate that they have to resort to remaking movies that no one wants to see? It's weird how the scripts have entirely switched and television is in its new golden age while movie making is going back to the dark ages.

    "We are done remaking good movies" (Willy Wonka; Peter Pan; Batman, The Producers, Planet of the Apes)
    "We have remade mediocre movies" (Oceans Eleven, Tron, Spider-Man)
    "It's time we start remaking bad movies" (Point Break; Planet of the Apes Remake, The Hulk)

    This movie looks like a rip off of the Fast and Furious franchise. Agent infiltrates group of "Robin Hood" outlaws and then has to make a choice between duty and friendship. Terrible plot, terrible acting, premise make zero sense. The only difference is that car enthusiast is replaced by extreme athlete.

    On an unrelated note, I have no idea how Fast and Furious got green lit for even one sequel. But Point Break will probably fail to hit its mark because there are a lot less extreme athletes than their are car lovers.
