POINT BREAK Gets A Blissfully Stupid Trailer
“I believe that, like me, the people behind these robberies are extreme athletes.”
God, I love this Point Break trailer. It is so massively dumb that I have to assume totally sincerity. That quote above, delivered as it is here, just blows me away. I mean, the trailer starts off with an ancient fucking proverb.
Things have come full circle. The Fast and the Furious ripped off the original Point Break; now the Point Break remake appears to be ripping off The Fast and the Furious. You have your flashy action. You have your extreme sports guys described as a “set of perps with a very unusual skill set.” And you have your bromance, this time between guys even less likely to know how to read. It’s all there.
Oh boy. I’m going to have to see this movie when it comes out. I don’t know if I can take it. What if it’s the greatest movie of the year?
(BTW, James LeGros is apparently not in this movie. But there’s a guy near the beginning of the trailer who looks just like him. Am I crazy?)
