Solid and incredible thriller with spectacular scenes about surfing and skydiving
FBI agent going up against a bank robberies executed by a band masked like US President, wearing Johnson, Carter, Nixon and Reagan masks. Although they never shoot anybody and never go into the vaults. The agent is hot on the trail but he's sucked by Patrick Swayze guru, a leader of the beach subculture, a fun-loving with destructive ways who plays cat and mouse game with the Feds. Meanwhile Reeves falls in love with Lori Petti, a beautiful surfing trainer.
This is a story of surfers and skydivers in Southern California. Impressive scenario and there are enough dazzling surfing and airborne stunts to keep you amused. Keanu Reeves as astute agent and Patrick Swayze as a thrill-seeker guru, help raise potential action-adventure story to a higher plane. Emotive and moving musical score by means of synthesizer, is splendidly made by Mark Isham with a Vangelis style. The film created the 'Skydiving sub-genre', such as, ¨Drop zone(John Badham), Terminal velocity(Deran Serafian) and Cutaway(Guy Manos)¨ among others. Nostalgic surfers with more than a little patience because the runtime is about two half and some, will enjoy this ode to the beach and mysticism and seeking the perfect wave. It's well directed by Kathryn Bigelow with a perfect and assured direction which keeps this movie on the edge of your seat.
