Synopsis: A young FBI agent infiltrates an extraordinary team of extreme sports athletes he suspects of masterminding a string of unprecedented, sophisticated corporate heists.
Release Date: December 25, 2015
Thoughts: I realize that this is going to make me sound like a tremendous hypocrite after decrying the recent remake of Poltergeist but I kinda think this reboot of the 1991 Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze action hit looks kinda…fun. Sure, it seems to have precious little to do with surfing and stars Luke Bracey (The November Man) and Edgar Ramirez (Zero Dark Thirty) will never replace the memorable stars but just as the original was a product of its early ‘90s time, so does this remake look like it’s squarely set in the high adrenaline, tech-savvy new millennium. Moved from its planned summer 2015 release date to a competition heavy bow on Christmas, here’s hoping the boys of summer bring some heat to the holidays.
