Our Score
You go for years without seeing a movie about skydiving and then suddenly, like buses, two of them come along at the same time - this and the Charlie Sheen vehicle Terminal Velocity. This is the pick of the pair: an exhilarating ride directed by action specialist John Badham with his usual flair and eye for spectacular set pieces. Wesley Snipes exudes charisma as the US marshal who sets out to hunt down the parachuting crooks whose airborne antics cost Snipes's brother his life. Gary Busey delivers another entertainingly villainous performance, while Yancy Butler is equally good as Snipes's reluctant partner.


Federal marshal Pete Nessip escorts a convicted computer hacker to a new facility. Events soon spiral out of control and the convict escapes, killing Pete's brother on the way. The tough cop teams up with a professional skydiver to capture the fugitive and avenge his sibling's death. Action thriller, starring Wesley Snipes, Gary Busey, Yancy Butler and Michael Jeter.
