Now it is time to surf little bit. Don't you tired of robbing banks?
A heist movie, whose tagline was '100% Pure Adrenaline'. That's so true for this movie.
What would excite you more, pump 100% adrenaline to your veins? Disguising in ex-American presidents outfit? Surfing against ocean's giant waves? Throwing yourself down from an airplane? Or robbing banks? Well, a gang in this movie does it all.
What about the hardest assignment for an undercover agent? Chasing after some bank robbers? Chasing after some bank robbers who do parachuting? Chasing after bank robbers, who do parachuting and surfing? Trying to leak to bank robber gang by participating their parachuting, surfing activities? Well, an underground agent in this movie does it all.
One of the coolest heist movie ever made, Point Break, features a fast, fast, fast life style and fast heists. If this American-Japanese co-production robbery movie can't offer you the adrenaline you are seeking for, then give up from this blog and consult to 'All the Movies Ever Made in Cinema History' catalogue.
Keanu Reeves won and Patrick Swayze got a nomination for Most Desirable Male category with this movie, and the movie was nominated for Best Action Sequence in MTV Movie Awards.
The director of the movie is Kathryn Bigelow, the only female director who has ever won an Oscar for directing.
