We gave it a B

In Point Break, Reeves is a college quarterback — turned — FBI agent teamed with Busey, sent undercover to nab surfers (led by Swayze) who’ve been funding rides by robbing banks disguised as U.S. presidents. In short: We love the ’90s.

EXTRAS
Nothing new from Keanu; not enough from Swayze and Busey, who should have teamed for a commentary. The making-of docs (at their best discussing Swayze’s extracurricular skydiving — that really is him doing the ”Adios, amigo” fall) will leave you hanging.
