WATCH: Point Break – how is it different to the original?

News of a remake of a beloved film is rarely met with enthusiasm and reaction to the upcoming Point Break remake has been no different.

The announcement last year of Warner Bros' plans to remake the 1991 film, which starred Kean Reeves and was directed by Kathryn Bigalow, prompted a plethora of sarky articles like GQ's, 'No, But Really: Why Is This Point Break Remake Happening?'.

This featurette attempts to answer the question by pointing out the differences between the new film and the original.

One other difference we've noted is that the new film currently has a rather appalling 9% rating on Rotten Tomatoes from 65 reviews compared to the original film's 68% from 57 reviews.

However, judgement shall be reserved until our film reviewers have had a chance to cast their eyes over its offerings.  The film releases in Ireland on February 5.

In the meantime, check out the featurette above, and trailer below:
