Synopsis


Point Break
Kathryn Bigelow's fourth action film follows FBI agent Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves) as he goes undercover to infiltrate a cache of Southern California surfers suspected of robbing banks. Utah, a former football player, is assigned to Los Angeles. There, four bank robbers, who wear rubber masks and call themselves "Ex-Presidents," have executed a series of successful robberies which embarrassingly have the FBI stumped. Utah, and his partner Pappas (Gary Busey) suspect that the robbers are surfers and hatch a plan for catching them. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

    Point Break is one of those movies I actually first became aware of during my teenage years. I also recently watched this film curious to understand my late adoptive mother’s fascination with Patrick Swayze (who plays Bodhi in point Break)when she was alive (she admitted that Patrick Swayze was one of the men she found attractive). There are other major stars attach to Point Break as well such as Keanu Reeves (as FBI Agent Johnny Utah), Garey Busey (FBI Agent Angelo Pappas), Lori Petty (Tyler Endicott), Lee Tergesen (Rosie) and others. Johnny Utah is given information by Angelo Pappas about the unsolved bank robberies. There were 27 banks in 3 years and they would often be in and out in 90 seconds. There are four men involved and they go to the robberies dressed as these late presidents; Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Ronald Regan, and Jimmy Carter. To complicate matters, Johnny Utah is never quite the same emotionally once he hears about Tyler Endicott and runs into her in person. Pappas is naturally concerned about catching the robbers as quick as possible because they only hit during the summer. One way that Johnny Utah strives to go undercover is by learning what it takes to surf in order to simultaneously get closer to Tyler Endicott and gain the trust of Bodhi and his crew. Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers makes a few cameos in Point Break as well (in the role of Tone). Another cameo feature in Point Break is the late Christopher Lee Pettiet (I remembered him from Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter is Dead). Anyhow, Johnny Utah and Angelo Pappas have their work cut out for them in trying to get the bank robbers because the men have robbed so many banks to the point where they have learned how to stay one step ahead of the law authorities. It also doesn’t help that Tyler and Bodhi are strongly connected together and Utah is portrayed as being in emotional conflict due to being so much in love with Tyler while being aware that he must cooperate with Pappas.

    This is a high-action, intense, outrageous film that manages to blend a lot of action movies into one. There are gorgeous surfing shots, intense bank-robbery scenes, violent shoot-outs, turf wars, and unlikely friendships that offer buddy-picture tropes on both sides of the law. It's Keanu Reeves at his best, playing the unassuming smart guy who comes off as dumb and likable enough to infiltrate a group of surfers who teach him about the real meaning of thrills and adventure with a dose of cheesy California spirituality.

    NONSTOP ACTION

    TFABOLOUS

    This is one of my all time favorite movies. There is action throughout this imaginative film. Keanu Reeves was born to play his role as Johnny Utah, a cop turned rebel surfer. Reeves' and Swayze's acting is done with the utmost conviction, bringing a true sense of realism to the audience. Blu-Ray delivers the greatest clarity of the film to date. AMAZING! You must buy this film if you love action, great acting, unique story, and the 'dead presidents'. Go get it.

    This movie ROCKS!!

    This movie is a great roller coaster ride and one of Keanu Reeves best prior to making the matrix. They must have done something right, as they stole the same story line to make 'The Fast and Furious.' If you are a fan of the movie then you will not be disapointed by it's debut on blu-ray. It has all the same special features as the "Pure Adrenaline Edition" they released a few years ago.

    an action film staring a very young Keanu Reeves and perhaps Patrick Swayze's best performance. Bank heists, surfing, sky diving, football - you name it this film has it. The plot involves undercover cop Reeves trying to find a gang of bank robbers, but maybe he got more than he bargained for. 3 out of 4 *

    Nicely done action flick, with lots of surfing and skydiving scenes. Executive produced by James Cameron and directed by his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow. A trip back to the early 90s with a young Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze (and of course, Gary Busey). The film keeps a good pace and there is good chemistry between the actors / characters.

    This is one of my all time favorite movies. Very entertaining, both my adult (24) son and I have re-watched it many times. I really enjoy Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves together and gorgeous cinematoghraphy. Realistic emotions of the characters. A classic. I've owned in every format. A great movie to enjoy more than once.

    I saw this movie when it first came out years ago and there was no spec. in the middle of the picture. I am disappointed because I had to return a movie to your store that didn't play at all. Don' t know if your "sale" selections are meant to be that way; I'd purchased movies from your store in the past which I didn't have problems with.
