This movie was made at the same time as Terminal velocity" with Charlie Sheen. Some people are complaining that one movie is a rip-off the other. To be honest I don't know who is right. I don't really care. Both movies are on the same level. Both are decent popcorn movies to kill some time. Nothing to write home about.
I have a soft spot for Gary Busey and I'm happy that he's the villain in "Drop zone" . Wesley Snipes as hero is nice , because he gives his rather generic hero some depth. You can obviously feel his pain.
The movie has some quite attractive photography and interesting music. It also gives us some insight at the skydivers community.
All in all it's not a bad way to spend a night. I give it 5/10.
