Point Break is full of energy and life that remind audience the great part of the 90s. Thanks to the filmmakers sensitive directions, it is also able to find its balance between the characters' hotheaded rebel nature and the purified youthfulness that the nature and extreme sports embody. 90s action flick at its charming best.

Inconsistent characters, in a series of CGI filled set pieces, weakly linked and with no apparent care for believability. If you can not worry about that then the over the top action is ok.

Point Break features Keanu Reeves, Patrick Swayze, and some good ol' 80's cheese. The plot is pretty good, the script is well written as well, and the acting is not too bad either, the two leads do a great job, and Gary Busey is always a plus. There were definitely a few corny moments and some parts that were questionable, and the second half of the movie featured everyone screaming through their lines while pulling off extreme stunts. In the end though, it sort of worked towards the film in a strange way. It kind of features the good-spirited attitude that Independence Day offers, even if it fails to to totally work all the time. Point Break is more of a cult classic, but still one I enjoyed

Good action scenes, nice set pieces, and a mediocre plot. But, the movie felt quite long and boring at times.

Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze share an amazing chemistry in this heavily action-packed crime flick, that will set Kathryn Bigelow as one of the big names in the female-directors department.

Hammy and Cheesy all in one! High-octane, intense action,violence, babes, pretty boys, and surfing. All the pillars of a good story, which should be part of the English literature curriculum. Surfers find it more bitchin' to rob banks than work. Gnarly Keanu Reeves (agent Utah) tries to take down Patrick Swayze (Bodhi)'s crew. Over the top stunts, with tongue and cheek over the top acting mixes well enough to pull off an entertaining movie. Swayze's presence makes Point Break bodacious. 3 stars.

6/22/2016: An epic 90's film with a good cast. Some of the acting and dialogue was pretty bad, but this is still a great film.

FBI agent Johnny Utah must go undercover as a surfer to investigate a string of robberies in which the perpetrators dress like former presidents. It's a fun, fast paced action movie.

I actually really enjoyed the movie. The plot was unique and had good characters and the pace moved quickly. Lots of action and a cool setting.

"Point Break" captures the thrill and intensity of a 1990's classic. The plot to "Point Break" is a young "Johnny Utah" portrayed by "Keanu Reeves" joins the "F.B.I." and takes on the new case of a group of 4 bank robbers named the "Ex-Presidents. "Utah's" co-worker "Angelo Pappas" portrayed by "Gary Busey" has a theory that the "Ex- Presidents" are surfers. Once knowing this "Utah" goes undercover to find out who the "Ex- Presidents" really are. The movie opens with "Utah" practicing his shooting while mixed with scenes of people surfing. This is a great opening to the film as it shows what the movie is about. Throughout the movie it shows "Utah" and "Pappas" busting big criminals. The action sequences are extremely entertaining to watch, they make it look like "Utah"" is truly about to get hurt. The film's climax is actually disappointing as it is unentertaining due to the unsatisfactory justice of the antagonist. "Keanu Reeves" isn't one of "Hollywood's" best actors; in fact he receives a lot of hate for this. It doesn't feel like "Keanu Reeves" is truly giving one hundred percent to his role as "Utah". "Reeves" gives the audience a calm performance instead of a strong and angry performance, as he should. In past "Mark Isham" has created thrilling and exciting music for his films and "Point Break" is no exception. The late "Donald Peterman" filmed "Point Break" exceptionally using no close ups or shaking the camera. If you are a person who enjoys 1990's Action movies then I recommend you watch "Point Break" as it has a great plot, thrilling scenes mixed with amazing music. Although the movie is not perfect it has some issues, these being an unentertaining climax, a weak performance from "Keanu Reeves" and a weak death. I give 1991's "Point Break" a 7.5/10.

Classic and action packed film.

Pretty good despite Reeves's humorously bad acting. It's funny because it's not intentional.

Epic guns and surf, bro. This original Point Break has more enough adventure to fill up two movies. Swayze has a great sophisticated charm in this that juxtaposes well with Keanu Reeve's Bill & Ted leftovers. Too long, but a good ride none-the-less. Rating: 7 / 10

Just Sit Back And Enjoy The Ride. What A Life It Would Be To Rob Banks & Ride Waves...I Actually Considered It At One Point...And Then I Grew Up, Got A Proper Hair Cut, Got A Job...Settled Down. But After 100+ Times?? Watching This, I Still Love The Soundtrack & The Spiritual Questions Around Surfing It Raises.
