Right before the DC qualifying jump begins, a camera operator can be seen filming the crowd underneath the canopy. Although one could argue that he might just be filming for a news crew or making a documentary about the jump, the Panavision film camera he's clearly using is not suited for that sort of work.

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.
