Point Break

There isn't much I can say about this movie that hasn't been said by dozens of other people. Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves and Gary Busey. Oh and the Commish. From the Good Taste League. Sent to the big screen in 1991, the movie is chalk full of great lines and music. A young svelt 27 year old Keanu Reeves acting to the best of his ability. I grew up on this movie, watching it probably over 30 times. I took it upon myself to try and decide what the best scene of the movie is since I know it by heart, and others with me were watching it for the first time. It's a tough call. It may be trite, but the scene when Keanu shoots into the air because he can't shoot the ex-President Reagan is probably the most memorable. Lines in the movie are a completely different story. Quite plentiful and worth the watch.

So even though this is quite the old movie (pushing on 18 years) but I'll review it the same anyways. It's tough to say you don't connect with the characters, the story is beyond obscene, but its still a very fun movie to watch. The most amazing part of seeing this movie again was the parallel my friend Mere made. The movie is identical to The Fast and the Furious. Even to the final scene of the movie. Lori Petty is no Jordana Brewster by any means, however its tough to deny how entertaining these movies are.

With the cult classic label helping the rating, I give the movie a 3.5 Manatees.
