Even back in the day, Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 ac­tioner– in which Keanu Reeves’s quar­ter­back-turned-FBI agent-turned ex­pert long-boarder in­ves­ti­gated Pa­trick Swayze’s cham­pion surfer-turned-zen mas­ter-turned-bank rob­ber – was plenty pre­pos­ter­ous. But dumb can be fun, right? Sadly, this re­make or re­boot or what­ever they’re call­ing it is rather short on fun. The ac­tors are dull, the jokes lame, and it just lacks that Bigelow oomph! 12A cert, gen re­lease, 113 min
