Did a dry California wind scramble the script as they moved into the third act? Did the tape recorder go on the blitz at the story conferences? Was there a fire in the editing room?

This is a very macho movie, and if the better film schools are looking for a contemporary film that very keenly exemplifies the marriage of sound and shoot, this is it.

Point Break is the best movie about cops, robbers, surfing and sky diving that you're likely to see.

Part beach bromance, part cult actioner, part search for meaning, it's an adrenalin-pumping thrill ride with so much macho testosterone that it's hard to imagine many male directors with bigger balls than Kathryn Bigelow.

The essence of movie remains unsullied, and with every viewing comes fresh details and a new appreciation for the film's fearlessness and originality in the midst of all of the cop formula.

Quaint in its depiction of an alternative lifestyle, yet still an above average, really quite vicious action thriller.

We might as well be watching a blissed-out Bill and Ted caper.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

From our first glimpse of a surfer hovering through a cascading wave to the final sky-diving stunt, Kathryn Bigelow's fourth feature keeps offering us new thrills with unapologetic verve.

A hare-brained wild ride through big surf and bad vibes, Point Break acts like a huge, nasty wave, picking up viewers for a few major thrills but ultimately grinding them into the sand via overkill and absurdity.

In some ways, Point Break is a guilty pleasure. But do keep in mind, like many drugs, repeated exposure may make you dumber.

In terms of Hollywood history, Bigelow's film is the perfect document of its time.

This visually delirious but intellectually underdeveloped thriller-actioner has some wonderfully executed chase scenes, but the characters defy dramatic logic even when played by Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves.

There's fun to be had, but there's also a few chapters worth skipping through.

While it can accurately be described as an action film, a heist movie, or even simply a thriller, Point Break is also the first "extreme sports" movie

[Bigelow] has a great eye not only for action, but also for the psychological push and pull behind the action.

There's enough high-octane, heart-racing excitement for a dozen movies.
