Point Break

Posted on the 03 November 2011 by Kaiser31083 @andythemovieguy
Point BreakA young hotshot ex-football player (Keanu Reeves) transfers to the L.A. bank robbery division of the FBI and is assigned to an eccentric veteran (Gary Busey) who has a wild theory that the most elusive crew is comprised of surfers who don the mask of former ex-presidents. Buying into the theory, the agent attempts to infiltrate the gang by way of a surfer chick (Lori Petty) which leads him to the centered, zen-like king of the board (Patrick Swayze) who takes him on a dangerous ride. "Point Break" is a fun and silly movie until about the 45 minute mark when the film rapidly digresses into utter ridiculousness. Kathryn Bigelow's movie is surprisingly well shot, but after awhile I wondered if the movie was to be taken seriously or taken for a farce as inane plot turns and horrendous acting become to much to bear. Honestly, I liked Swayze and supporters Busey, Petty, and John C. McGinley, but Reeves' movies consistently leave me asking myself if a better film would have resulted if he were not in them and the absolute absurdity of almost all of the plot turns here left me feeling more then a little bummed out.
