An F.B.I. Agent goes undercover to catch a gang of surfers who may be bank robbers.
Before Kathryn Bigelow was making movies about Iraq War bomb techs and SEAL Team 6 hunting down Osama Bin Laden, she was making IMPORTANT movies about vampires in the southwest and unruly gangs of surfer bank robbers. The Academy Award winning Director has never been more adept than when she took the pulse-pounding sports of high-flying skydiving and totally tubular surfing and mashed them together with a tale of heists, sex, and Gary Busey eating meatball sandwiches. If you like your heart palpitations short and ultra-fast, then strap yourself in for the nonstop adrenaline ride that is POINT BREAK.
Keanu Reeves has never been more excellent than as the FBI agent Johnny Utah who is forced into deep cover as a surfer dude infiltrating the suspected dead presidents bank robber circle headed by none other than Mr. Patrick “I can rip your throat out if I feel like it” Swayze.
