“22 years. Man, L.A. has changed a lot during that time. The air got dirty and the sex got clean.”
Well it’s been 24 years since the first Point Break blew our minds with Keanu’s acting prowess and that magnificently pixellated early CGI that tossed Swayze (R.I.P.) into some massive barrels, and we could not be happier that the new one is finally here.
Yeah you could say that Hollywood has no original stories left. It’s all remake after remake, and they are glossing up shitty storytelling with high end graphics and expensive stunts. We get it.
Don’t get us wrong, we love a solid indie complete with the latest Arcade Fire acoustic covers and produced by James Murphy. But whatever, this is freaking Point Break. Complete with squirrel suits, 40 foot waves, and out-racing an avalanche of giant boulders on a BMX. Yeah…squirrel suits.
No Keanu, but this one doesn’t look like it’s going to disappoint.
