What's it about?

An undercover cop makes his way into a scene of bank-robbing extreme-sports atheletes in this remake of Kathryn Bigelow's Point Break. Ericson Core directs from a script by Equilibrium's Kurt Wimmer. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

This film is not nearly as good as the original Point Break from the 80's, but the stunts and visuals are superior here, and that's all you would go to see here -- I thought it was worth seeing on the big screen.  Forget the cast, and acting, and story-line, as this is all about super cools stunts and beautiful scenery.  I enjoyed the film for that alone -- enough said.

What I liked about this movie:
  • Awesome stunts!
  • Amazing visuals!
What I didn't like about this movie:
  • Poor acting and story-line
Who should see this movie?

Adrenalin junkies, or just fans of cool stunts.  If you like the trailer, you will probably like the movie, if you don't care about the acting and story that is!  It's worth seeing on the big screen at the bargain prices.
