More Great Things About the Movie Point Break

Fri, Nov 7, 2008

ART, MUSIC, SURFING

point break movie keanu reeves patrick swayzeIf you have never seen the movie Point Break, you need to back away from your computer immediately and drive down to the local Blockbuster and rent it (or Netflix it).

While I won’t delve deeply into the plot, Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves) is a rookie FBI agent that has been tasked with apprehending a bank robbing gang led by a thrill-seeking and Zen enlightened Bodhi (Patrick Swayze). While Johnny Utah attempts to bring the gang to justice, he becomes friends with Bodhi and his bank robbing posse. In short, a full-on brodeo ensues – sand football, surfing and skydiving. On top of the non-stop action, Bodhi gives us a mantra to live by:

It’s not tragic to die doing what you love. If you want the ultimate, you got to be willing to pay the ultimate price.

Even though the movie was released in 1991, which might be older than many of my readers, I won’t ruin the ending nor the fine balance between cheesiness and awesomeness attained by the movie. Just go watch it.

And for those of you that have already seen it, rejoice. A Point Break sequel, Point Break Indo, has been announced.
