Home / Now Showing / POINT BREAK
Pure adrenaline from director Kathryn Bigelow, with Keanu Reeves as an FBI agent convinced by his partner (Gary Busey) to go undercover in the surf community to infiltrate a gang of bank robbers wearing masks of ex-presidents Reagan, Carter, Nixon and Johnson. Reeves soon finds himself falling under the spell of the gang’s philosophical and charismatic leader, Bodhi (Patrick Swayze). The L.A. surf/crime action movie! “There’s enough high-octane, heart-racing excitement for a dozen movies.” – Derek Adams, Time Out (London).
