(A Random Trailer (P)review)
Finally I can reveal realweegiemidget‘s guilty pleasure: Point Break (1991). If you haven’t seen it yet (like me), then here’s the trailer:
From what I’ve seen and read, an FBI agent goes undercover amongst a group of surfers he thinks are behind a number of bank robberies.
I’ve been meaning to watch this one for years because I enjoy watching Keanu Reeves. Having said this, the strange thing is that I’d never watched the trailer until now. It comes across as a great fun 90s movie with all the action, romance, drama and sport rolled into one.
Rookie agent Johnny Utah (Reeves) and his senior/mentor/partner Angelo Pappas (Gary Busey) appear to make a fine team with some comic moments. Bodhi (Patrick Swayze) heads up the suspect gang (well, I think it is the suspect gang). From the look of things, our two leads form a friendship that ultimately has Johnny Utah questioning his loyalties. Might be a bit of the cliché situation but hey…looks fun regardless.
The trailer breaks up sections nicely…there’s the whole action/police type setup which then totally changes pace to all the mushy romantic bits and ends with all the extreme sports shots. Going to be interesting to find out how these all tie up.
I’m off to give it a watch…in the meantime, why don’t you head over to @2ReelQuirkyCats for your thoughts on this guilty pleasure? I’ll pop in there too. Have fun!
