Point Break

The trailer for the remake of Point Break has just been released. The remake is directed by Ericson Core and stars Luke Bracey, Edgar Ramirez, Ray Winstone and Teresa Palmer.

The official synopsis reads: 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.

Dave’s review from Entertainment Scene 360

Wrath Of The Titans is very much a ‘guilty pleasure’ film. There isn’t much substance in the actual storyline and the acting standard is far from what you would describe as great, yet alone likely to ever warrant the attention of awards or nominations, yet there is something strangely alluring and enjoyable about a film that is set to become an action favourite.

If you haven’t seen Clash Of The Titans it is highly recommended you give it a watch before you sit down to watch Wrath Of The Titans as the screenwriters haven’t given great detail in setting up characterisation. In fact if you can’t remember what happened, or the status of the relationship, between Perseus (Sam Worthington) and Zeus (Liam Neeson) then you certainly need to do a Clash Of The Titans refresher because while it is mentioned a couple of times this time around (and is an important part of the story) it is never fully explained.

This time around sees Perseus trying to forget about his heritage and events of the past by living as a humble fisherman in a small village while protecting his son. It’s not only Persues’ life that has completely changed, the whole world has. No longer do regular citizens turn to the Gods in prayer or sacrifice and as a result all the Gods, even the mighty Zeus, have weakened in power.

The world is turned even darker when Zeus’s sons Ares (Edgar Ramirez) and Hades (Ralph Fiennes) join forces in a bid to release a sinister force. It is then up to Perseus to reluctantly team up with Agenor (Toby Kebbell) and Andromeda (Rosamund Pike) and try to stop the force from destroying the Earth.

Much of the fact that the film stands up is thanks to director, Jonathan Liebesman. Liebesman proved with World Invasion: Battle L.A. that he can turn an ordinary action script to a good looking flashy film on the big screen, and with Wrath Of The Titans he certainly does that. He manages to let the audience forget that there is a weak (at best) storyline and very little characterization by blowing their socks off with some amazing action sequences that for once actually allows you to keep track of who-is-who during ‘busy’ action sequences.

People planning on seeing Wrath Of The Titans in Imax 3D should be warned that some of the action scenes don’t work so well in this format. Often, the vision on the screen becomes blurred which is both annoying and distracting when you are trying to keep track of what is happening.

It is good that Liebesman brings his A-game to the film because many other people involved certainly don’t. The usually good Liam Neeson breezes his way through the film (being tied up for most of the film certainly doesn’t help his acting range), while even Sam Worthington who has proved his worth in countless Australian films as well as Hollywood blockbusters such as Man On A Ledge and Avatar seems to just cruise his way through Wrath Of The Titans. He doesn’t even bother hiding  his Australian accent which sounds extremely out of place as he roams around Ancient Greece.

Wrath Of The Titans certainly isn’t a great film. Its storyline and acting seriously lets it down but if you enjoy big blockbusters that are non-stop action you’ll still find yourself in movie nirvana.

 

Dave’s review from Buzz Magazine

Stone me, shoot me, hang me even, but I have to admit that Wrath Of The Titans did entertain me. Yes there were a more than a few things wrong with it, especially if you are watching the IMAX conversion, but I was entertained for the entire film, which I’m pretty sure was the film’s aim.

Wrath Of The Titans picks up with Perseus (Sam Worthington – Man On A Ledge, The Dark Fields) trying to put his past and heritage behind him and work as a humble fisherman while protecting his son. However, around him the world is in shambles, the Gods are almost forgotten to the point where even the once mighty Zeus (Liam Neeson – The Grey, Unknown) has been weakened due to the lack of prayer.

But then things turn ever darker when Zeus is taken captive by his son, Ares (Edgar Ramirez – Saluda Al Diablo De Mi Parte, Carlos) and brother, Hades (Ralph Fiennes – Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2, Coriolanus) as they attempt to release a sinister force.

Perseus then realises that in order to make the world a safe place for his son he will have to reluctantly team up with Agenor (Toby Kebbell – War Horse, The Veteran) and Andromeda (Rosamund Pike – Devil You Know, The Big Year) to stop the evil plan from destroying the world.

The thing that makes Wrath Of The Titans so damn enjoyable is that director, Jonathan Liebesman (Battle L.A., The Killing Room) knows how to shoot action scenes that make the audience go wow, and with a film like Wrath Of The Titans that is all you really want. I’m willing to overlook a somewhat weak script, the fact that at times the IMAX conversion is very blurry and even the fact that Perseus has an Australian accent so thick it would make Crocodile Dundee flush because at the end of the day I wanted this film to entertain me and it did that to a T.

I can’t stress highly enough though that this isn’t a film to see at IMAX. If anything did distract me from the brilliant action sequences it was the fact that in 3D at IMAX something of them look very blurry indeed, in fact it looked the same with the glasses on or off.

When its comes to casting the guys behind Wrath Of The Titans got it right. Worthington’s accent may become annoying at times, but the guy can act and looks good when fighting his away across ancient Greece. The only annoying thing is that it seems Liam Neeson is wasted in a role that seems him strapped to giant rocks for nearly three quarters of the film.

Wrath Of The Titans delivers exactly what you expect from an action film. A basic storyline, limited acting performances and scenes that will blow you out of your seat. A visual nirvana for action films.
