Synopsis:
Keanu Reeves stars as Johnny Utah, a clean-cut FBI rookie assigned to track down a gang of bank robbers operating in Southern California. Since his partner (Gary Busey) is convinced that the robbers are surfers, Johnny decides to go undercover in the maverick world of surfing. He soon meets Bohdi (Patrick Swayze), a charismatic adrenaline junkie who'll do anything for a thrill...perhaps even rob banks. As the two become friends Johnny falls under the dangerous influence of Bohdi. He becomes addicted to the endless days of surfing and reckless nights of partying, and even gets involved with Bohdi's ex-girlfriend (Lori Petty).
As Johnny gets closer to cracking the case, he learns the truth of Bohdi's most important lesson - if you want the ultimate thrill, you have to pay the ultimate price.

Preposterous story, wooden acting, but fun in a cheesy kind of way - Point Break review by RP

Spoiler Alert
05/05/2012

Keanu Reeves has always been a little wooden in the acting department, as confirmed by the wooden persona he played later in 'The Matrix'. 'Point Break' is no exception as he plays a preposterous role in a preposterous story, managing it all with a straight face. He plays a naive FBI agent paid to learn to surf to infiltrate a gang of bank robbing surfer dudes. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow who went on to greater things with 'The Hurt Locker', it is perhaps the quality of the directing which keeps the silly plot together. It also stars Patrick Swayze who a couple of years earlier starred in another classic cheesy movie 'Roadhouse' – so bad it's good. 'Point Break' doesn't deserve the 'so bad it's good' tag, but comes pretty close. 3/5 stars – you may well enjoy it.
