After Swoop cuts away from his main to assist Selkirk with his malfunction we see a close up as he falls down to Selkirk, clearly his 3 ring connectors are still stowed which means his main has not even deployed at this point, yet we have just seen him cutaway. See more »
People probably told you that Jessie Crossman was the only person skilled enough to jump from a 747.
Well, the actual phrase used was "dick brain".

The only reason I gave this any kind of "stars" is that the story moves well, keeping one entertained. Otherwise, the dialog is so sophomoric and the characters so macho-idiotic, it might make one throw up. Also, the no one is likable in here and the Rambo mentality where the "good" guys never get shot while the reverse happens all the time just adds insult to injury.
In other words, this is a typical Wesley Snipes movie of the period.
I didn't care for the female lead, either, played by Yancy Butler, who is just too Hollywood '90s- tough and turned me off. An interesting film at times.....but extremely dumb.
