It’s the cursed question that every movie remake has to go through - can it step out of the shadow of its predecessor? For fans of the original 1991 action crime film Point Break - complete with Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves, the epitome of 90s Hollywood stars - a revamp was always going to be a tough call as the original cult classic is widely perceived to be one of the stand-alone greats.

Point BreakPoint Break has got a whole new cast in this remake of a classic

Director Ericson Core has decided to shoulder the responsibility and reboot the thriller and the trailer suggests he’s determined to get the adrenaline going.

Perhaps it’s the incredible skydiving scene that original director, Oscar-winning Kathryn Bigelow, managed to pull off that still stands squarely against today’s CGI action that propelled Core to be so vigorous in his own attempts at a thrilling ride. Whatever it was, he has made sure things are exciting.
