Above is the first official trailer for the wholly uneccesary Point Break remake and although it looks actiony and sweaty enough it sadly seems to be lacking in something.
Directed by Ericson Cove, (Invincible), this time around Johnny Utah, played by Luke Bracey, (The November Man) takes on an extraordinary team of extreme sports athletes he suspects of masterminding a string of unprecedented, sophisticated corporate heists led by the enigmatic Bodhi, played Edgar Ramirez, (The Bourne Ultimatum).
Sounds like Ray Winstone, who plays Angelo Pappas, a role originally fleshed out by Gary Busey, has been attending the Dick Van Dyke School of movie accents. Terrible.
Point Break is scheduled for release on Christmas Day.
Here’s the official trailer for Nick Love’s, (The Football Factory, The Firm), anticipated film adaptation of the much loved British 70s crime series The Sweeney.
It stars John Actor as the hard, unrelenting, rough-around-the-edges police Inspector Monkfish who will break every rule and bend every law just to get his man…who are we kidding?
Starring Ray ‘fackin’ Winstone, Ben Drew, (the singer Plan B), Damian Lewis and Steven Mackintosh, who for some reason has now been typecast as a boss or policeman suffering from near nervous breakdownesque pressure, see Luther and Inside Men for evidence.
Just like the original series the movie version of The Sweeney deals with the crime fighting duo of Jack Regan and George Carter and involves them shouting, driving fast, firing guns and ordering someone to put on their trousers. Monkfish would be proud.
