Point Break: Pure Adrenaline Edition

Point Break: Pure Adrenaline Edition
Directed by: Kathryn Bigelow
So many titles have now hit DVD that 2006 has been more notable as a year for rereleases with new features. It also gives you a second chance to pick up Point Break. Kathryn Bigelow, one of the best action directors of the ’80s and ’90s, gives this beach bum caper a backdrop of surf photography beauty and enthralling, violent set pieces. It was later remade as The Fast and the Furious, with cars instead of surf boards, but Point Break is still the more furious selection.
