They Remade Point Break and it Looks Soulless and Terrible and I Hate Everything Now


Recommended Posts

Judging by the trailer, the remake looks less like Point Break and more like this piece of crap:

Did they ever getting around to shooting the casting agent that put Ice Cube in the second one?  LOL

Not even wasting 2 minutes of my life with the trailer. I heard a few years ago they were switching out surfing with x-games nonsense.

The only thing more dumb than MMA is this X-games garbage. Get a job, hang Sheetrock learn to build a deck stop with karate and skateboards that's for 10 year olds not 28 year old losers.

By the way, just for context's sake, if anyone hasn't seen the movie XXX, the plot basically revolves around Vin Diesel's character, who's a well-known extreme athlete. I mean, you can tell by all the skydiving and motorcycles that he's like REALLY EXTREME YOU GUYS. 

Anyway, the setup is basically this: 

 

Super-Secret Government Guy: "Hey Vin Diesel, there are these Russian Bad Guys who are like terrorists or something. They're also super into EXTREME sports. I mean, you can tell by all the skydiving and motorcycles. Since you're also EXTREME, we need you to infiltrate their group and take them down. EXTREMELY."

 

Vin Diesel: "I appreciate you recognizing me for my EXTREME ways, but I'm just way too busy with all of my own skydiving and motorcycles. I appreciate you coming by, though. Have an EXTREME day." 

 

Super-Secret Government Guy: "Since everyone was expecting you to refuse, don't you think it would be even more EXTREME of you to say that you'll do it?"

 

Vin Diesel: "Well played, Super-Secret Government Guy. Count me in." 

 

BOOM! POW! FAST CARS! 'SPLOSIONS! HOT GIRL! SNOWBOARDING! EXTREME! MORE 'SPLOSIONS! GUNS! DID WE MENTION EXTREME?!

 

The end. 

 

I wouldn't be surprised if this new Point Break follows the same general model.

Bombdirt seems to have invested way more in Triple X than I would have expected.  He is so deep into it I would have expected him to write the title as xXx.

 

Good call. The correct way to write the title is xXx. I guess three capital Xs just isn't extreme enough. That, and they probably didn't want to disappoint people who mistook it for porno.

Please tell me you saw this movie whilst in the middle of a drunken late night Netflix binge as opposed to spending $10+ on such a travesty.

I think it was a rainy afternoon HBO boredom viewing if I remember right.

True story.  We went to the Nats game looking for cheap seats.  We picked row X because it was more eXtreme!  The usher told us that we had to turn off the lights at the end of the game.  On the bright side there was a nice view of the monuments through the chain link.

The original point break was not really that much of an accomplishment.

No it was just a good action film that had some really well done action sequences like the raid on the surfer dudes house and that foot chase with Keanu and Patrick Swayze.

I'm ashamed to admit that I've seen parts of that movie/

We all did. I was just busting balls.

 

That flick was supposed to be a mega hit.  Dept. stores lined shelves with every POS Tank Girl clothing, etc.  They never figured it would "tank" beyond all belief.  

 

Wonder why it failed?  The trailer shows no sign of stupidity or cliche.  lol
