This is probably the greatest movie of all time. Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze face off with such intensity, charisma, and chemistry that you'd think that these roles were written for them eons ago by gods up on Mt. Olympus. Well, dude, they were.
Although Point Break is fascinating on many levels, it works extremely well as a metaphor for the Cold War. Bodhi and his gang represent the Soviet Union, who threaten the United States (Johnny Utah) with their liberating ideology of robbing banks to finance an endless summer. As a parallel to Marxist revolution as it generally existed in the Third World, Bodhi's anti-establishment surf rhetoric was indeed backed up by force--his goon Rosie represents the Red Army, or the KGB or something.
Johnny Utah is quite effective as the United States, going to any extreme (learning to surf, etc.) in order to crush his enemy. Interestingly enough, however, Johnny gets a little bit "too deep" with Bodhi's gang, and for awhile mirrors the Carter administration's policy of peaceful coexistence with socialist sattelites (Nicaragua). This doesn't last for long, however, when Gary Busey's Pappas (Ronald Reagan) convinces Johnny that he needs to bust the ex-presidents.
Tyler (Lori Petty) plays the unfortunate role of the victimized Third World. The two superpowers, Bodhi and Johnny, are forced to use her as a "proxy battlefield" in order to avoid the mutually assured destruction that would certainly happen if they met head on.
In the end, the overwhelming force of Utah's defense spending (the FBI budget vs. Bodhi's crumbling Marxist/Bank Robbery economy) forces the ex-presidents to break up, and Bodhi dies a death that is infinitely more poetic and beautiful than that of the USSR. Thank You.

Kathryn Bigelow's adrenaline-fuelled thriller "Point Break" (1991) - co-produced by James Cameron - combines Californian mysticism with pulse-pounding action set-pieces and toplines the iconic figure of Keanu Reeves (fetishized here by Don Peterman's expansive cinematography) as an undercover FBI agent who infiltrates a group of itinerant surfers (led by Patrick Swayze) responsible for a series of daring bank raids. Despite the film's relentless macho swagger, "Point Break" aims for something more profound than your average summer blockbuster and is distinguished by some extraordinary visual conceits: From the glorious surfing scenes to the action highlights (most notably, Reeves' heart-stopping pursuit of a fleeing bank raider through a suburban landscape) to a show-stopping sky-dive sequence which lifts the film onto another plane altogether, far removed from the typical excesses of American commercial cinema.
Lori Petty ("Tank Girl") provides the nominal love interest - and very good she is, too - but W. Peter Iliff's script focuses almost exclusively on the ambiguous relationship between 'good guy' Reeves and 'villain' Swayze, drawing them together in adversity, while the supporting cast is rounded out by the likes of Gary Busey ("The Buddy Holly Story"), John C. McGinley, James LeGros ("Drugstore Cowboy"), and experienced surfers John Philbin ("North Shore") and Bojesse Christopher (co-writer and director of "Out in Fifty" [1999]), both exquisitely beautiful. However, Reeves dominates the movie with typical economy and grace, balancing his trademark 'cool dude' persona against the heavier dramatic requirements of his role as a dedicated FBI agent.

C'mon! Some of you dudes are, like, taking this flick waaaay to seriously, man. This is a great movie to put in if your bored or high and nothing's on tv or if your with some friends and you don't feel like going out. Instead you get a six pack, a pizza, turn the lights off and pop this movie in. The absolute most enjoyable thing about this movie is its complete indefensibility. How can anyone possibly defend a movie in which no five straight minutes are the slightest bit believable. But that's the genius of it. At every even slightly crucial point in the movie, the plot demands that FBI Special Agent Johnny Utah (Reeves) make the stupidest decisions, the most incompetent blunders and display the most irresponsible and morally wrong behavior humanly possible in a member of law enforcement. If he wises up at all, he figures out who the robbers are and sends about two dozen black and whites over to their home and the movie's over in about a half hour. Pretty anticlimatic end, huh? Rather, its about three quarters the way through the movie that the obvious occurs to him. Second in his class at Quantico...riiiight. Instead, we get two hours of surfing, skydiving, bank robbing, stunts, fistfights, gunfights, hot babes, one-liners and chases. Personally, I prefer all the running around to the realistic ending. Don't you?

This one skims along wihtout missing a beat, happily aware of its own implausibilities. Possessing cliches in spades, "Point Break" somehow manages to walk a very precarious line--surviving, even thriving, in open defiance of its own plot holes and Keanu Reeves. Reeves takes a lot of heat for his acting ability (or lack thereof), but movies like "Point Break" prove that in the right circumstances, he can excel. No heavy thought required here--Reeves is right (dare I say perfect?) for the role of almost emotionally blank FBI cowboy Johnny Utah, while Gary Busey as his crusty partner stereotype (this guy in the FBI? Yeah, right!) also fits right in. "Point Break" is an engine disguised as a film, but unlike the computer-generated excesses of today, it actually delivers the consistent, almost effortless adrenaline rush that action movies should without numbing you with pyrotechnics and digital deception. One of the last really good action movies Hollywood produced.
