A film about raw energy, pure energy. It equates the ocean with action cinema, love with skydiving, football with crime. Life as a constant flow of energy, "The Edge", the same one posited by Hunter S. Thompson. Both a celebration of this "rush" and a rather meditative step back (Bodhi's failures as a leader). Both a tremendously entertaining action film, and a spiritual action film. I'd call it the "purest" action film.
