To get close-ups of the actors during the skydiving sequences, a crane rig with a telescoping arm was built for each actor. The rigs enabled the cast to say their lines while the camera shot them from below to achieve the sense of floating while skydiving. See more »

Loved this movie from the day i first watched it -Inspired me to just to live your life the way you want. This is essentially the journey that Utah takes in this movie. Bodhi and the gang are not cardboard cutout baddies, they are actual the kind of guys you wanna hang with ( for the most part!) Katheryn Bigelow brought both a slightly mocking, but also a great sensitivity to the relationships in this movie, that the turd of a remake completely missed.Lori Petty also was brilliant as the no BS surf girl. who Keanu falls for (literally!). But of course, it was Patrick Swazye, who stole this movie with his brilliant portrayal of the surf guru Bodhi - He was the spiritual center of the gang, and even though he lost his way at the end - He still had some honour. Contrast that with the stiff at the FBI ( With the notable exception of the hilarious Angelo Pappas ( Gary Busey y'all!!),and you can see why Utah was conflicted - All in all a great action film, that has some real depth, and great (Corona accompanied) rewatch value.
