Point Break for idiots
10 January 2013 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The plot: A group of attractive, young daredevils rob some banks, while dodging cops and gangsters.

I've always liked Stephen Dorff, so I figured that I'd take a chance on this movie. It looked like a shallow ripoff of Point Break, but I figured it couldn't be all bad. This is one of the most shallow, superficial, and derivative action movies that I've ever seen. It's a pastiche of much better movies, and the fact that they ripped off Heat just pisses me off even more. It's one thing to rip off Point Break, which wasn't all that amazing to start with, but to rip off Heat... it's insulting. Michael Mann couldn't make a movie this bad, even if he tried.

Luc Besson could have made this movie in his sleep, and it would have been infinitely better. It's difficult for me to believe that this director has worked with Besson, because Besson's talent seems not to have rubbed off on him.

Even for junkies like me who love low budget action movies, this movie borders on near-unwatchable. I'm slowly beginning to understand why Stephen Dorff's career started to die.
