This is one of the best Skydiving Action thrillers ever made, Wesley Snipes is brilliant as a U.S. Marshal whose brother is killed by air-jet skydiving terrorists lead by actor Gary Busey, who captures a passenger. Snipes shaken up by his brother's death, decides to team up with skydiving experts, to find the terrorists, and stop them from robbing a high-rised bank on Independence day. This film has great action scenes, special effects filled skydiving sequences. The energized soundtrack matching the action scenes is also flawless, as is the crystal clear widescreen presentation and filming, not the least of which is a script having a realism that leaves no stone un-turned.
Let me tell you about the action. It's excellent! Even if you're not a sky-diving fan, this will make you want to take it up. You always know when a films good and that's when you want to be or do what that actor is doing in the film. Drop Zone achieves this with flying colors. One problem with this film however is that some of the effects are now looking a bit ropey. This, thankfully, is only on about a total of 5 seconds worth of effects from the whole film. This is quite an achievement considering that the film is all about effects and stunts. What do you expect, it is about sky-diving after all. In complete, this film is a good, all-round action film even if you don't know anything about sky-diving or even if you don't have an interest in sky-diving.
Overall rating: 8 out of 10.
