All this week we’ll be running a series of interviews for Point Break, Ericson Core’s retelling of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 cult classic.
Today we catch up with Édgar Ramírez who reveals that he has taken up rock climbing, surfing and snowboarding following his six months of being involved in extreme sports for the making of the film.
He consulted with extreme athletes to research the character he plays in Point Break, and here he talks about the film asking people to take full responsibility for their choices in life whether, like Bodhi, they are subversive choices … or not.
Point Break is out in UK cinemas on the 5th of February.
A young FBI agent infiltrates an extraordinary team of extreme sports athletes he suspects of masterminding a string of unprecedented, sophisticated corporate heists. Deep undercover, and with his life in danger, he strives to prove these athletes are the architects of the mind-boggling crimes that are devastating the world’s financial markets.
