Point Break synopsis: FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves) is assigned to investigate a series of bank robberies in Southern California by four men who wear rubber masks and call themselves “The Ex Presidents.” Agent Utah appoints Agent Pappas (Gary Busey) as his partner, who believes the perpetrators to be surfers. The suspected group of individuals are led by a man they call Bodhi (Patrick Swayze), whom is radically devoted to the surfer culture.
