Young FBI agent Utah (Keanu Reeves) must track down a four-man bank robbery team who wear masks depicting the features of ex-US Presidents Reagan, Carter, Nixon and Johnson. Suspecting them to be surfers, the agent sets about infiltrating the surfing community, and becomes a little too close to the adrenalin junkies to be objective. With Patrick Swayze as the main suspect, and Gary Busey as Utah's more experienced partner. (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment)

English Point Break has one enormous advantage over the overwhelming majority of similar films, we truly believe in lines and toughness of the main characters. So, the talk of the extraordinary secrets of the sea and the idea that one can be above the law does not sound like silly nonsense from a teenage soap opera, but becomes unforgettable, especially when they come from the mouth of Patrick Swayze. The action itself is incredibly rough and raw, and the film has a thrilling pace. It's not just about pretty faces, this film is a politically incorrect, adrenaline-fueled, breathtaking ride overflowing with testosterone. ()

English Kathryn Bigelow simply has a knack for making films where guys are tough, and you'd want to be like them. Or at least you enjoy watching their fates unfold. Patrick Swayze has incredible charisma here and easily overshadows Keanu Reeves, although Keanu really tries not to just be a sidekick. I was pleased to see Gary Busey in a positive role. ()

English The film that kick-started Keanu Reeves’ illustrious career. A police thriller that takes place in an attractive surfing environment. The pace speeds up only in the last third, as everything that happens before is about getting to know the characters. Their relationships are well-developed, although today they seem a bit cliché. The last third, however, is surprising with unpredictable twists and its skydiving scenes complement the surfing ones in creating the pleasant poetics of a free lifestyle (which defines the characters of the film). The ending adds a bit of depth, but it was obviously added as an afterthought half a year after the film was originally completed. What is hard to swallow in this film today is Mark Isham’s terrible “action” music (a motif-free mess of percussion), which makes one realize how dramatically Hans Zimmer and his disciples changed the face of Hollywood action-movie music.

English It’s a beautiful movie, what else can I say? It’s simply a beautiful movie. At the beginning you have no idea what to think. Nevertheless, Keanu Reeves immediately puts on the air of a sharp-eyed rookie, and dives into his case. Everything on that coast is moving with a loose pace until there are scenes that I didn’t believe I’d ever see in a movie. The reviewer Enšpígl said it beautifully. There’s plenty of room for the freedom of the human spirit. It’s easy to listen to and even more to experience when you actually dive into the movie. Some scenes stuck in my mind and I might never get them out of my head and I’m already looking forward to watching the movie again. If nothing else, the ending is out of this world. And if anyone says otherwise, they’re just weird... ()

English A solid hit in our cinemas in the early 90s. With a bit of hyperbole, a wittier Baywatch meets a buddy-cop movie like Lethal Weapon – gorgeous waves, surfing, a sense of unbridled freedom, and a criminal plot led by two handsome men with considerable acting talent. All this under the direction of a lady who proved that working with her husband, the famous James Cameron, this time in the role of executive producer, suited her perfectly. It's simply impossible not to succumb to the superficial feeling; all those beautiful shots with wild waves and brave surfers are just asking to be put on a calendar, and together with the parachute scene they can give you a pleasant chill. I have to admit that I was a little jealous of Swayze’s Bodhi's search for freedom and the spiritual side of the sea, and I would love to trade places with him for a while. The unconventional ending and the casting of the well-known representative of assholes of all kinds, Gary Busey, in perhaps the only unreservedly positive role of his career are also a delight. All in all, a happy 3*, the fourth one was definitely raised by the funny cameo of Anthony Kiedis, frontman of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, playing a bad guy, and his cool catchphrase "That would be a waste of time…".
