The movie stars: Clemens Schick, Édgar Ramírez, Luke Bracey, Matias Padin, Ray Winstone and Teresa Palmer. We’ve posted comments from a few of the critics, below.

Tom Russo over at the Boston Globe, gave it a mediocre 63 score, saying: “For all the adrenalizing positives in this reworked Point Break, inadvertent silliness remains.”

Elizabeth Kerr from The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 50 grade. She stated: “Ericson Core’s Point Break strips the silly fun and relatively straight-ahead narrative from the original for a humorless, if photogenic spin on extreme crime.”

James Marsh from Screen International, gave it a 40 score, claiming: “Core’s incarnation of Point Break is about one thing, extreme sports, and it is no small relief that the film at least handles those sequences well.”

Maggie Lee from Variety, gave it a 40 score, saying: “The sense of living dangerously is somewhat lacking as Kurt Wimmer’s emotionally vacant screenplay fails to make audiences care enough about the characters to sweat over their physical exertions.” Stay tuned.
