Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze star in this nonstop action thriller about an FBI agent, Johnny Utah, lured by the rush when he goes undercover to unmask a band of thrill-seeking surfers who rob banks to fund their addiction to pulling off the most daring score, surviving the greatest danger, and riding the biggest wave—Point Break. [122 min; action, thriller; English]

"A near-perfect action film directed by Kathryn Bigelow with frenzied intensity, and it never seeks to patronise its own material or its audience." — Kevin Maher, Times UK

"The Reeves-Swayze duo here belongs in the pantheon of equally hot frenemies, providing an apt, but subtle comment on the dangers of toxic masculinity." — Savina Petkova, A Good Movie To Watch

"At her best—and even in a hand-me-down project like Point Break—Bigelow is a uniquely talented, uniquely powerful filmmaker. Where the male action directors are still playing with toys—with dolls and models and matte shots—Bigelow has tapped into something primal and strong. She is a sensualist of genius in this most sensual of mediums." — Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune
