Waited a long time for this to appear on br, (in fact it's difficult to find even on dvd). Love the movie, very under rated, but the br is average, not much better than upscaled dvd quality, but as they were the same price it was a no brainer.

  picture quality as bad as it can get

i will not waste much time writing a lot about this BD.
the movie itself is pretty good and would have gotten 4 stars, the sound a solid 3 star rating, but the picture quality sucks on so many levels, that it kills this release.

  Great film, poor transfer.

So I bought this film expecting it to be a great blu-ray, which it was, the film is still brilliant! The performances still as great as the first time I watched it, and the excitement of the film was still there.
The only downside was the transfer to blu-ray. Knowing the film had many great scenes of the waves, and that brilliant sky dive, I was hoping the colours would be more intense. But I was sadly disappointed. The blues just weren't blue enough and the clarity not as sharp as expected.
All this aside, great characters, great plot, great film.

This is a much underrated blast from the past, that has stood the test of time, and is still as fresh and exciting now as it was way back in the winter of 1991 when it was released in the cinema. and looks better than ever before on Blu Ray.This is still Keanu Reeves best film, as it blasts the over-rated Matrix Trilogy and the overrated Speed out of the water and is up there with Road House and chick fick Dirty Dancing as Patrick Swayze coolest role.
The plot is simple enough as a gang of surfers/ adrenaline junkies lead by Swayze,rob banks dressed as the ex-presidents to get cash to follow the summer and surf around the Globe. Reeves a rookie FBI agent who is "young dumb and full of cum" is assigned to infiltrate the gang and bring them to justice.
But wait a minute, have I seen this film before? The answer is yes! This film was copied almost scene for scene by Fast and the Furiouse. But Point Break being ten years older than Fast and the furiouse is still far better. It may have a script that only has one toe dipped in reality, but the action is breath taking and the film is shot with jaw dropping style, Just watch for the house to house chase on foot, or the brilliant breath taking sky diving sequences.
So if you want to experience one of the great guilty pleasures, and one of the ultimate adrenaline rush's in the cinema for the past twenty years, buy this movie now. Even my fourteen year old daughter that it excellent (probably due to the six packs on show)The Blu Ray may have limited extra features but what little there is is good and it's worth also noteing that director Kathryn Bigelow wnet on to oscar glory as the first woman to win best director.

Great film that still stands the test of time. Produced by James Cameron and directed by Kathryn Bigelow this has quality 90s tastic action. With a support cast of John C McGinley, Gary Busey and Tom Sizemore, this has some great scenes.....
Blu-Ray quality is no better than DVD to be honest, but at the time of this writing the Blu-Ray version is actually cheaper than DVD!!!
One of Patrick Swayze's greatest films.

  Surfing, skydiving, shooting awsomeness

| | See all 2DamnSly's reviews (3)

One of my all time favourite easy watching films. I have seen this film well over 100 times and it never tires and blu-ray makes it even better. OK its not crystal clear but this film is all about the action, the fantastic one liners, then great cast list and the best on foot chase scene ever. If you haven't seen this buy it as you won't be disappointed it is an adrenaline junkies dream and its not just action there is a plot line that goes along with it. Bigelow just directed the academy acclaimed Hurt Locker and this is one of her early outings and one you'll be sorry to miss.

After waiting years for this to come onto Blu Ray i was slightly disappointed at the quality of film, quite grainy in some brilliant scenes, sky diving scene could of been made so much better. Saying that the sound is perfect, gun shots echo round my room and lets not forget this film is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! 4/5 for me. Well worth a tenna :-)

Thi is a great 90's heist movie with I beleive a little cameo from a Red hot chilli pepper or two. One for the collection. As to whether or not it's worth the Blu Ray, juries out but for those younger veiwers who may not have seen this, go get today, it is ace! Weirdly Keanu can act in it too, it was a little before he became really famous and type cast.
