What movie was that...?

Point Break

directed by Kathryn Bigelow

If there is a more high-octane, ass-kicking outlaw surfer cop movie out there, I have never seen it. Kathryn Bigelow has a talent for taking extreme to the next level (and be sure to catch The Hurt Locker, due out this summer and starring the amazing Jeremy Renner). Keanu Reeves plays Johnny Utah, former hot shit quarter back turned hot shit federal rookie assigned to solve a series of bank robberies perped by The Dead Presidents, pros who never make mistakes. The only lead Utah and aging partner Pappas (check out the grille on Gary Busey) have to go on takes them to the beaches. Pappas thinks The Dead Presidents are surfers. Totally! There, Utah meets Bodhi (Oh, Patrick Swayze, be still my heart), a zenned-out, seriously baddass surf guru leading a rabble of rogues in search of their endless summer. Peep the excellent Tom Sizemore in an early role in which he plays a psycho police officer, and John C. McGinley in which he plays a wound up, ready to explode professional type. The little hand says it’s time to rock and roll!
