The Wrap | 'Point Break' Review

The Wrap

When snarky L.A. theatrical producers turned Kathryn Bigelow‘s campy 1991 action melodrama “Point Break” into a stage show, one of the play’s most successful gags was recruiting an audience member into the role of FBI agent Johnny Utah, with the idea that a non-actor’s cold reading of dialogue would approximate Keanu Reeves‘ legendary wooden Zen in the original.

The joke has gone too far in the new “Point Break” remake, with Utah being played by Luke Bracey (“The Best of Me”), giving a performance so utterly blank that future stage spoofs will need to cast a broom or a set of andirons in the role to duplicate what’s happening on screen here.

The story is too old to be commented.
