Rotten Tomatoes Score: 68%
We both recognize Point Break as one of the finest films ever made, so we had a great time talking about it. There’s not just one tiny thing that makes it great, either. A lot of little things add up and allow this movie to be more than just a shallow action film. However, it’s still a fun ride that keeps you entertained from start to finish.
We also wander a bit in our early discussion, as you know we like to.
