In "Point Break," a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes–led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways. Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the architects of this string of inconceivable crimes. The film is replete with the most daring athleticism ever seen in a motion picture. These action adventure feats are performed by elite athletes representing the world's best in class in big-wave surfing, wingsuit flying, sheer-face snowboarding, free rock climbing, and high-speed motorcycling.

Critics Consensus: Loaded with dazzling action but bereft of purpose, the Point Break remake will be remembered as the first film to make audiences pine for the simultaneous presences of Keanu Reeves and Gary Busey.

For all the adrenalizing positives in this reworked "Point Break," inadvertent silliness remains.

"Point"-less remake -- and don't try this stuff at home!

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Point Break is a remake of the 1991 movie of the same name -- and, like most remakes, it's not worth much. Some teens, especially extreme sports nuts, may be interested (especially given that this version is rated PG-13, as opposed to the original's R), but its shelf life is guaranteed to be fairly short. Expect tons of dangerous stunts (none of which should be attempted by non-professionals), with characters getting injured -- bloody faces are shown -- and dying. There's also fighting, shooting, car chases/crashes, and explosions. Characters kiss and have a brief sex scene; they're clearly topless, but nothing sensitive is shown. Many bikini-clad women are shown dancing at parties. Joints are briefly shown, several characters hold drinks at parties (though they're not shown drinking), and several characters smoke regular cigarettes. Language includes "s--t," "bulls---t," and "a--hole."
