      Point Break was an action packed movie and a half. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, a director known for pushing the limits and never pulling any punches, Point Break starts at a gallop and never slows down. This was also one of the first action movies that focused on the relationships between all characters in a fairly intimate way. Not to mention focusing on the relationship between man and


      nature and how that force of attraction and power is both undeniable and destructive.

      Reeves is FBI Special Agent Johnny Utah and works solving bank robberies in Los Angeles. He’s partnered with Angelo Pappas (Busey), a 22 year veteran who’s the laughing stock of the FBI’s Los Angeles bureau. Besides that, he just happens to have enough experience and insight that might crack one of the FBI’s toughest cases: “The Ex-Presidents”, a group ...


      • of four bank robbers so efficient, they manage to rob over twenty banks in three years without ever being caught.

        This film works on so many levels that a person unwilling to get past the label of “action movie” might not catch them all. It’s a multiple love triangle between characters: with work in the FBI L.A. bureau; with past and present loves between Swayze, Swayze’s ex-girlfriend, and Reeves; among the “Ex-Presidents”, Reeves, and

        Busey in solving their case, and the list goes on.

        Supposedly, this film had started and stalled many times, with various up-and-coming stars attached to star and almost never got made until executive producer James Cameron and Kathryn Bigelow salvaged it and turned it into the blockbuster it became. Kudos to them for recognizing the potential this film had, and action movie fans the world over have thanked them by turning this into a classic.
