Point Break ★★½ 1991 (R)

If you can suspend your disbelief—and you'd need a crane—then this crime adventure is just dandy. Reeves is a young undercover FBI kid sent to infiltrate a gang of bank-robbing surfer dudes. Swayze is the leader of the beach subculture, a thrill-seeker who plays cat-and-mouse with the feds in a series of excellent action scenes. Silly brain candy. 117m/C VHS, DVD .
