Luke Bracey Talks About Reprising Keanu Reeves' Character In 'Point Break' Reboot


Luke Bracey Keanu Reeves Edgar Ramirez

Earlier this year, fans of ‘90s movies were filled with a mixture of excitement and nervousness at the prospect of cult classic Point Break being remade. With the American release scheduled for December 25th, one of the movie’s stars, Luke Bracey, spoke exclusively to us about his experiences on set.

The 26 year old star was only two when the original was released, but he reassured fans that he was “very familiar” with the Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, having watched it plenty of times as a teenager.

“It’s a movie I grew up with in Australia. I also grew up surfing on the beaches of Sydney, and it’s kind of handed to you with your first surfboard if you’re born in the ‘90s [laughs]. Your first surfboard and a copy of Point Break and it goes from there! So if you get an e-mail saying there’s a potential you could be Johnny Utah [Keanu Reeves’ character in the original], your eyes go wide and you get really nervous.”

Joy Review

Extraordinary

After Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, mercurial filmmaker David O. Russell reunites with Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro for an offbeat biopic about the woman who invented the Miracle Mop. It's such a quirky movie that it's destined to divide audiences, but there's magic in Russell's loose, inventive filmmaking style. And this lively story has a lot to say about the tenacity required to achieve the American dream.

Joy Mangano (Lawrence) is the only sensible person in her family, so she's been running the household most of her life. But now things are getting a bit too complicated, as her father Rudy (De Niro) moves back into the house after his second marriage fails, Joy's mother Terry (Virginia Madsen) does little but watch her favourite soap opera, Joy's ex-husband Tony (Edgar Ramirez) lives in the basement pursuing his dream of becoming a pop star, and her sister (Dascha Polanco) undermines everything she does. As Joy cares for her own children, it's only her grandmother (Diane Ladd) who has any confidence in her. And when she has a flash of inspiration and creates a self-wringing mop, getting it on the market is an uphill battle. Finally, she catches the attention of Neil (Bradley Cooper), who runs a brand new shopping network called QVC.

The story spans some 40 years, during which Russell gleefully parallels Joy's family chaos with the lurid soap on Terry's television. Of the people around Joy, only Grandma, Tony and her childhood buddy Peggy (Elizabeth Rohm) believe in her. So even though her dad's new girlfriend (the fabulous Isabella Rossellini) invests in her mop, no one thinks she'll achieve any real success. This means that Joy's journey is a series of sometimes outrageous obstacles both within and outside her immediate circle. And of course the biggest barrier is her gender, because almost no one accepts the idea that she might be a genius.

After successfully integrating himself into a group of suspicious-looking sports fanatics, he meets Bodhi; a charismatic individual with whom Utah embarks on a number of extreme escapades.

Joy Mangano always wanted to be an inventor and, after getting married, having three children and then getting divorced, she finally decides to follow her dream. It's often the male entrepreneurs that people remember in history, but Joy proves that women can be just as powerful as she rises to become president of her own company, Ingenious Designs, and invents the cutting edge cleaning system, 'Miracle Mop'; all while taking care of a family on her own and running into some difficult circumstances along the way. Betrayed, occasionally on the wrong side of the law and suffering from many losses, Joy is the living embodiment of what doesn't kill you makes you stronger - and with millions of dollars in sales, she's certainly stronger.

Point Break Has Been Rebooted - But Will The Remake Be Any Good?


Luke Bracey Edgar Ramirez

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.

Point Break (2015) - Teaser Trailer


Johnny Utah is a young new agent in the FBI who also happens to be an incredible athlete in extreme sports. Thus, this makes him the perfect agent to go undercover on a rather unique case, where a group of particularly talented masked individuals are raiding banks with an extraordinary ability to escape in ever more astonishing ways. Utah soon infiltrates one particular gang of sportsmen, led by the charismatic Bodhi who he becomes particularly drawn to as together they venture on dangerous excursions from rock climbing to surfing. He's deeply suspicious that Bodhi is part of the robberies, but getting solid proof means getting even closer to him; close enough that even Utah's boss starts to get uneasy. Utah's got a lead, but can he bring himself to follow it? Or will he find an unlikely loyalty in his so-called friendship with Bodhi?

'Point Break' Remake: What We Know So Far


Luke Bracey Ray Winstone Edgar Ramirez Patrick Swayze Keanu Reeves

So, it looks like the Point Break remake is set for release in August 2015. Directed by Ericson Core, whose only other big directing job was 2006’s Invincible starring Mark Wahlberg, the new script has been written by Total Recall remake co-writer Kurt Wimmer.  There's a whole lot of action movie experience going on there, which is a promising start.  Core was also the director of photography for The Fast and the Furious way back in 2001, so we've got faith his visuals will be pretty impressive - that's for sure.

The 2015 remake is pegged to be an unofficial reboot of The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 film of the same name, which starred Keanu Reeves as an ex-quarterback-turned-FBI-agent and Patrick Swayze as a system fighting surfer.  After it's suspected that a gang of bank robbers, nicknamed 'The Ex-Presidents,' are potentially a group of surfers, Agent Utah is sent in to infiltrate their group.

The Counselor Review


OK

This film proves that all the right ingredients don't necessarily make a movie work. Even with top-drawer filmmakers and actors, this dramatic thriller simply never grabs our interest. It looks great, and everyone is giving it their all, but the story and characters remain so badly undefined that we can't identify with either.

The story's set on the US-Mexico border, where a slick lawyer (Fassbender) known as "the Counsellor" has slightly too much going on in his life. He has just proposed to his dream woman Laura (Cruz), while he's planning to open a nightclub with Reiner (Bardem). For extra cash, he's organising a massive cocaine shipment with Westray (Pitt). And it's this drug deal that goes wrong, creating a mess that engulfs Reiner and Laura, as well as Reiner's shrewd girlfriend Malkina (Diaz). As his life collapses around him, the Counsellor scrambles to salvage what he can, even as he realises that it'll be a miracle if anyone survives.

There are problems at every level of this production. McCarthy's first original script is simply too literary, putting verbose dialog into the actors mouths that never sounds like people talking to each other. Fassbender and Bardem are good enough to get away with this, but Pitt and Diaz struggle. Both Fassbender and Cruz bring out some wrenching emotions in their scenes, but their characters are never much more than cardboard cutouts. In fact, no one in this story feels like a fully fleshed-out person. And the little we know about each character makes most of them fairly unlikeable.
