'Point Break' helped to solidify director Kathryn Bigelow's reputation as a director with a strong sense of action and tension, and helped to further the surfing craze that was sweeping America.
Starring Keanu Reeves, Patrick Swayze, Gary Busey and Lori Petty - as well as a cameo by Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis - 'Point Break' was a commercial hit, but a failure in the eyes of critics of the time. It's since been reconsidered as a wildly entertaining action film - and basically inspired 'The Fast & The Furious'.
But did you know a sequel was planned? Or did you stop reading this because you're hearing John C. McGinley's voice in your head? Are you receiving my signal?
'Point Break' features in season 2 of our movie podcast, 'The Revisit'.
