    Jeez. It seemed like a good idea at the time to buy this movie, but then here I am months later, still not cracking the plastic packaging. I just go home every night and stare at the box for a moment. I kind of shift the box a bit to look at the awesome 3D box art, hoping that will be the proper motivation I need to get me to push this inevitable three dimensional dung in to my Blu-ray Player, so I can treat myself to the punishment I deserve for compulsively buying an unnecessary (and EXTREME!) remake of Johnny Utah's struggle in a professional love triangle between a very drunk Gary "get me two" Busey, a very angry Lori Petty and a very Patrick Swayze (Whose coming with me?! High Five Bro! No? Understood...) In the meantime it's been a good place holder on my shelf for the next compulsive purchase: Taken 4, The Star Wars Prequels in 3D , Steel Magnolias 2 and License to Drive: The Coreys Addition.

    The tension is missing

    I truly enjoyed the original movie with Patrick and Keanu. That is one of those movies that you could watch on a lazy Saturday afternoon and it would be over before you know it because it flowed, it had tension between the characters and the chemistry was really good between the two leads. I did not feel that in this remake - the tension of being discovered as an FBI agent by the group he joined just wasn't there so it lacked the danger the original had. The flow was not as good as the original and the chemistry was lacking as well. The location scenery is the best part of this movie. I would only recommend this to die hard fans that simply have to have the remake in their collection. Anyone else, save your money and watch a you tube video of People are Amazing.

    Decent remake of a decent 90's action movie

    Anyone who has seen the original Point Break with Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze will know that the original movie was a semi cheesy action movie about surfers who rob banks. The remake however is about adrenaline junkies who are trying to complete this ultimate inner peace quest while at the same time trying to fight all governments worldwide. If your looking for this to be anything like the original, you will be disappointed, however if you are just watching this to see a semi decent action movie, then you will be mildly entertained. I don't believe this movie to be worth the pick up! If you really want to see it, try borrowing it from your local library (free pickup) or rent it from a streaming service or video store (if you still have one in existence near you).

    3-D action movie done right!

    I saw the original when it came out, but didn't see this one in the theater. When Best Buy was selling it for $10, I couldn't pass it up, especially since it was the 3d version. I didn't expect anything when I put the disc it, but I hoped. And I was not let down. From the first seconds, to the end, the 3D was wonderful to watch, and it was converted. Of course there are non-action scenes where 3D is there, and used, but let's face it, it's the action that shines, and what we want to see. If your looking for a action film that takes advantage of all that 3D can be, I think you should check this one out!

    Some awesome 4K action footage and decent plot

    I really liked the action scenes in this film and the plot was a cool concept but at times I felt parts were over dramatic. This is a something I feel frequently and I feel it's just a typical technique in Hollywood these days but it's probably just the fact that I watch no TV at all so it's something I'm not exposed to frequently. Overall I still liked the movie as I've learned to accept that that's an element that is very common amongst most movies but it wasn't expected considering it's based around action and extremely sports. Still worth the purchase because the action scenes are definitely epic!

    I can watch this movie just about every day. It's exciting and has a good story. I would not compare this movie to the original one. I watch this movie as a whole new movie without comparing. The stunts are awesome, and the music goes good with all of the scenes. Yes there are just a couple of cheesy parts, but not so bad that I don't like this movie. The actors are all on point and know what they're doing. This is a movie that you don't really even need to listen to the words to understand it. It's visually awesome.

    Remade = reimagined

    I'm a fan of the original Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze Point Break. They re-used some character names, the premise of an undercover FBI agent getting into a group of extreme sports enthusiast criminals, and the lead criminal following a monster wave as the last stop in his quest. That's about it. Beyond that, the story is quite different, as is the drive behind Bodie's quest . If you're merely looking for a modernized version of original, you may be disappointed. If you want a true re-imagining of an old action movie, this one may satisfy. I still prefer the original, and that is the reason I wouldn't recommend it.

    I went into this with low expectations and enjoyed it for what it was. I didn't care for Luke Bracey as Utah but was probably best they could have done. Knowing no one could replace the Swaz thought Edgar Ramirez did very well as Bodhi. Its all about the updated stunts so you have to forgive the lack of character development/ bonding and the Samsara character was extremely disappointing. Wish I would have bought the DVD as the Blu-ray extras were the biggest disappointment of all, was looking forward to the extras more than the movie!
