Point Break was one of the most excellent films that had to with surfing, bank robberies, and the ultimate ideal that is the freedom to do what you want and where. Added in were the conflicting needs to follow one’s duty, obey the law, and follow orders, but those were usually secondary to that one driving need to be free. Special Agent Utah became a man conflicted even when he realized that the men pulling off the Dead President robberies were the same guys that he was getting closer and closer to. Of course his assignment was to get close to them, but somehow he wound up getting a little too deep.
That’s the lure of freedom.
10. Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true.
Fear of something makes you pause just long enough so that you begin to think about what you’re doing and why it might be a bad idea. That’s why fear is the mind-killer.
9. If you want the ultimate, you’ve got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It’s not tragic to die doing what you love.
Many people throughout the world live by these words, that’s why some die young and some have no fear of the chances they take with their mortality.
8. Do you think that taxpayers would like it Utah, if they knew that they were paying a federal agent to surf and pick up girls?
Harp was an out and out jerk without any redeemable qualities really since he never even tried to believe in Utah and Pappas.
7. Vaya con Dios.
The last words to a man that knows he’s probably riding out to his last surf should at least be a fond farewell.
6. He’s not coming back.
Simply looking at the waves that Bodhi is thinking of surfing is enough to know that anyone tempting one of those monsters is not long for this world.
5. Harp, I want to tell you something. I was in this bureau when you were still popping zits on your funny face and jerking off with the lingerie section of the sears catalog.
Gary Busey is great at delivering lines that make you laugh and pump your fist in the air all the same time.
4. Life sure has a sick sense of humor, doesn’t it?
Bodhi is simply way too chill about some things when he needs to show a little more emotion, but it’s how he got by.
3. You crossed the line. People trusted you and they died. You gotta’ go down.
Despite all the changes that occurred in his demeanor and look Johnny Utah was still all about justice.
2. This was never about the money, this was about us against the system. That system that kills the human spirit. We stand for something. We are here to show those guys that are inching their way on the freeways in their metal coffins that the human spirit is still alive.
Bodhi was always about the higher purpose when it came to anything, as he didn’t want to believe in a society that beat its people down.
1. You can’t just call time out and stroll on into the beach if you don’t like the way things are goin’.
Much like life there’s no real chance to call a time out and step back to assess how things are going, you need to be doing it on the fly most times.
That quest for inner peace and harmony carries a heavy price sometimes.
