Point Break (1991)
It is a mythical film for all those who, being young, had the opportunity to see it, I remember legions of unconditional and although I was not among them I remember that I liked it too. It is normal that if you are 17 years old and you see it you like it, the real problem is that if you are already thirty-many and still have it as a fetish movie then you have not evolved intellectually the least. There has been no real growth inside.
That does not take away, of course, to say that within the action cinema of the last fifteen years and from which at the beginning of the 1990s it began to emerge, it is one of the best by far.
The action scenes are very successful and we have several among the best I remember. The merit belongs to the director who has more than indisputable expertise. Miss Kathryn Bigelow who had an affair with Keanu Reeves while filming the movie has a different sensibility in action movies that I don't find among male colleagues who practice that genre.
From his filmography I prefer "K-19" which is a much more mature and round work, however normal people prefer the more youthful and less political since they understand it better.
Of the actors I stay with Patrick Swayze, although the girls like Keanu Reeves more. And special attention to some secondary more than correct.
The script is much more careful than is usual in this type of tape and it shows for good in the plot that is plausible (as far as it can be) and in the action scenes that are almost always appropriate.
Of course, all this does not mean that you have to prepare the traca and launch rockets as some do for "They call him Bodhi" (title certainly more fortunate than the original version). We are facing a prototype MTV movie. Surf, cute boys and girls, beach and cops running and hitting shots. The film is purely genre and therefore not extrapolated to the real cinema there six and not a nine that if we were voting action cinema would only give.
Of course, if you are young and have not seen it, I envy you and if you are older, take a look because it will entertain you for sure and even if it was simply because people are encouraged to play sports -
