In the final skydiving scene of the film, Bodhi tells the pilot to climb to an altitude of 4,000ft to get his injured buddy, Roach, to a "safe jump altitude". The average free fall takes 50 to 60 seconds from roughly 13,000ft. 4,000 ft is still considered a safe jumping altitude but would require immediate deployment of the parachute, also known as a "hop and pop". It would take roughly 26 seconds to hit the ground from 4,000ft. 10 seconds for the first 1,000 ft and 5.5 seconds for every additional 1,000 ft. Of course, you would want to be under canopy by 1000 ft, reducing the free-fall time by another 5-6 seconds. See more »
You're a real blue flame special, aren't you, son? Young, dumb and full of come, I know. What I don't know is how you got assigned here. Guess we must just have ourselves an asshole shortage, huh?
Not so far.

Die Hard might be the greatest action movie of all time, but "Point Break" is not too far behind. Keanu Reeves plays federal agent Johnny Utah(a role he was born to play) who is teamed up with a veteran federal agent Angelo played by Gary Busey to crack the case of the ex president bank robbers. Angelo has a theory that the bank robbers are surfers, and Johnny goes undercover as a surfer to bust the bank robbers. Along the way he meets adrenaline junkie Bohdi played by Patrick Swayze. Well I am not going to give anymore away. This movie has some of the most amazing action scenes ever! It is highly entertaining and very quotable. Reeves is playing a role he was born to play(next to Ted in Bill and Ted) and Swayze has a lot of fun in his role. The movie is also very quotable and has a great soundtrack. So if you are in the video store looking for a good action film rent "Point Break". "Vayo Con Dios"
