Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves in

Patrick Wayne Swayze, the American actor behind the surfing movie "Point Break" has died today, aged 57, after losing a 20-month battle against a pancreatic cancer.

Swayze, an absolute Hollywood icon, starred as "Bodhi" in "Point Break", alongside with Keanu Reeves and Gary Busey. He played the role of a charismatic leader of a surf gang.

"Point Break" was released on July 12, 1991 in 1,615 theaters and went on to make a worldwide total of $83.5 million. The film became a cult ring between the Hollywood industry and surfing. In 2006, "Point Break" was released on DVD in a special edition.

Entertainment Weekly considers that "Point Break" has one of the best surfing scenes ever directed in a movie.

Patrick Swayze will always be remembered by the international surfing community as a fighter and a great man.

Get ready to watch a surf film that finally features surfers riding waves. Thank you for focusing on what really matters, "Blue Intensity."
