The recent remake of the classic Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves surfer movie, Point Break (which stars neither Patrick Swayze nor Keanu Reeves) is now available digitally on the Movies & TV (or Films & TV) app across Windows 10 PCs, Windows phones, and Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Here’s the film’s description:
In “Point Break,” a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes–led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways. Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the architects of this string of inconceivable crimes. The film is replete with the most daring athleticism ever seen in a motion picture. These action adventure feats are performed by elite athletes representing the world’s best in class in big-wave surfing, wingsuit flying, sheer-face snowboarding, free rock climbing, and high-speed motorcycling.
Point Break’s Blu-ray release is currently set for March 29 so this is a pretty good opportunity to see it before then. Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie, The Hateful Eight, is also available today digitally ahead of its own March 29 Blu-ray release. Like Point Break, it can now be purchased across all of Microsoft’s devices in the Movies & TV app.
All about The Hateful Eight:
In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff.
