The moment we said Point Break we're guessing you pictured one scene in your mind, and one scene only: the one where Patrick Swayze jumps out of an airplane with a parachute and Keanu Reeves, in the ultimate act of reckless badassery, jumps out after him with a gun. And no parachute. He hurls himself toward the ground and catches Swayze in midair, and the two have a shouting standoff as they reach terminal velocity.
To understand how bizarre and pointless this decision was, you have to rewind a bit. Keanu's character, FBI agent Johnny Utah, catches up with Bodhi (Patrick Swayze) at the airport, who's loading equipment and cash into a plane. A shootout occurs, and Bodhi takes Utah hostage and drags one of his friends along with him, despite the fact that the guy's been shot and is clearly dying. It winds up not even mattering, because Swayze kicks him out of the plane a few minutes later anyway.
"Curse you, Swayzeeeeeeee!"
