Trivia

The creators of the movie wanted it to be as authentic as possible, i.e. no CGI, so all of the great extreme-sports scenes were shot in real life, at a variety of exotic locations. The free climbing scene at the end of the movie was shot on location, at Angel Falls, deep within the jungles of Venezuela. The skydiving scene in the beginning of the movie was not actually shot in Mexico, but the last part of the scene (where two guys jump into a massive cave) was. The cave, Cave of Swallows, is one of the largest vertical caves in the world, and is located in central Mexico. The base-jumping scene, where the crew is flying their wingsuits from the top of a mountain, barely off the ground, between trees, and through gorges, were all filmed near Walenstadt, Switzerland. When doing the snowboard scene, filming took place on the Italian side of Mt. Blanc. Not filming directly on the mountain, but rather filming it in a valley called Aosta Valley, located between Valgrisenche and Courmayeur. The action scene at the gold mine was also filmed in Italy, but this time in the Dolomite mountains. A part of the motocross scene was shot at the Falzarego Pass. The very first motocross scene seen in the movie, is shot in a place called Swing Arm City, in Utah (USA). And finally, the surfing scenes are filmed in two different locations: Peahi Maui, Hawaii and Teahupo'o, Tahiti. See more »

What a let down
29 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

I was enthusiastically exuberant about returning to what I've known as a cult classic, the original "Point Break". This reboot, is full of slick stunts and visuals, but the story, or lack thereof, makes this taste like pablum. I very seriously doubt that after two hours from getting out of the theater watching this, that anybody would even remember the name's of the central characters in this film. Why, because the film maker neglected to give us a story where the characters are expounded and fleshed out beyond the 3 minutes for any resolute back-story on any of them. I appreciate the stunts and stunt people for their quality work involved, but stunts don't make a movie. A good story, with quality characters that are inter-meshed with emotions and plots that pull the viewer into the characters' world is what makes a memorable film. I'll stick with the original "Point Break".
