What you may need to know
1. The original Point Break (1991) is perhaps the most ridiculous action movie ever made. It’s a masterpiece.
2. So why not do a remake set against the world of extreme sports? BECAUSE IT’S A HORRIBLE IDEA.
3. The new Johnny Utah? Luke Bracey. He lacks the depth, subtlety and nuance of a Keanu Reeves.
4. @1’54 Ray Winstone, getting paid.
5. @1’56 Hollywood Exec: ‘Get me the chick from Twilight! All right, get me someone who looks like the chick from Twilight!‘
6. Gerard Butler was originally going to play the Swayze role, but he bailed. When Gerard Butler bails, you know you’re in trouble.
7. Suggested tagline: There will be jumping. Lots of jumping.
8. Broadsheet Prognosis: What? No Gary Busey cameo?
