Point Break Re-release Blu-ray Special Features Detailed

Posted May 19, 2011 09:13 AM by Josh Katz

Warner Bros.As a result of a catalog acquisition from 20th Century Fox and Largo Home Entertainment, Warner Home Entertainment will re-release Academy Award-winner Kathryn Bigelow's Point Break on Blu-ray. This action-packed thriller about cops and criminals in Southern California was previously available on Blu-ray as Fox's "Pure Adrenaline Edition"; Warner's June 14th edition will replace that out-of-print version of the film.

It appears that Warner Home Entertainment has kept most of the special features from the Fox Blu-ray - the studio has only excised two trailers and a photo gallery. Remaining features include:
  • Eight deleted scenes
  • 4 featurettes: Adrenaline Junkies, It's Make or Break, On Location: Malibu, and Ride the Wave
  • Theatrical trailer
Point Break is available for Amazon pre-order of $13.99.

I'm hoping for a good remaster of the movie

I had the FOX Pure Adrenaline Edition on Blu-ray and I sold back to Amazon it as soon as I heard about this re-release. I expect it to look and sound the same and be the same transfer, however I was expecting more special features.

Only time will tell if this re-release has a new transfer, but by the looks of it this is just your standard re-release by another company (FOX vs. Warner).

Tell me one other film that combines surfing, skydiving, bank robberies, spirituality, and Anthony Kiedis in one movie?

The Fox BD is great with very film-like PQ and lot's of unfiltered fine detail. I just don't see a remaster making that much of a difference at the moment. Unless their doing a new 4k scan with the latest tech. Plus, if you've seen the film you know it's never going to look reference quality.

And given this is Warner (who wouldn't even remaster Clockwork Orange for the recent re-release) I very much doubt their going to remaster this catalog title.

Worst case scenario: Since WB loves to bit-starve their encodes and ever-so-slightly filter the compression out, I wouldn't be surprised if this release is slightly worse. But that's only if they went with a new encode. Although WB did surprise us with those great UK remasters of the Lethal Weapon films and the two packs (Last Boy Scout/Last Man Standing) were great. So who knows.
