what a rush
7 September 1999 | by (Maine) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on television on lonely Sunday night, and was I ever surprised. This movie is cool as hell. Wesley Snipes plays Pete Nessip, a rogue U.S. Marshall hot on the trail of the criminals who killed his brother during a prison bread aboard a passenger plane. The skydiving stuntwork is awesome, the action scenes are cool, and their are even a few funny parts to boot. All things considered, I would recommend this movie to any action fans.
