Part of Heist!

FBI agent Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves) goes undercover to infiltrate a cadre of Southern California surfers suspected of robbing banks. But things get complicated when the group’s philosophizing leader Bodhi (Patrick Swayze) puts Utah under his charismatic spell. One of the greatest action extravaganzas of the ‘90s, this no-holds-barred ode to adrenaline from director Kathryn Bigelow also happens to represent one of the greatest on-screen bromances ever committed to film.  

“We might as well be watching a blissed-out Bill and Ted caper” —Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

“The plot of POINT BREAK, summarized, invites parody (rookie agent goes undercover as surfer to catch bank robbers). The result is surprisingly effective.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times (1991)

“While the critics may yammer, POINT BREAK delivers the thrills, spills and crunches its action-hungry audience demands.” —Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter
