    Point Break should never be remade. NO ONE can beat Patrick and Keanu.

  5. Please. For the love of all that’s holy. Please learn the difference between a remake and a reboot. This is a remake. There was only one movie to begin with. The Amazing Spider-man was a reboot. Man of Steel was a reboot. This is a remake. A REMAKE.

    Why? Why is Hollywood re-making…Excuse me, re-booting another movie that doesn’t need to be touched? Pretty lame that Hollywood can’t do something original.
