Appropriately cheesy C-grade action film. (spoilers)
29 April 2006 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

I had the feeling before I saw 'Freefall' that it was destined to be a turkey, but I should've expected the type of movie it was. These are a grade of action movies that started in about the late 70s and really haven't died out. They're cheesy and the mounting inattention to details can be ridiculous, but these movies were made with the purpose of one thing: action non-stop. Granted, despite the extreme cheesiness and idiocy of much of this film, the story was at least somewhat more interesting than most.

Dex Dellum (Jeff Fahey, making an ill attempt to play a former agent/CEO of a wilderness magazine with a southern drawl) sends his fiancée, Katy (Pam Gidley) to some remote island country to track down and photograph a species of hawk that was rumored to be extinct. When she gets there, she meets the mysterious but rather intriguing Grant Orion (played by Eric Roberts, hubba hubba!) After a misunderstanding about Grant dying (he's a former stuntman who likes free-falling in his spare time) and some steamy (and awkward) sex scenes, Katy has found herself in the middle of an inter-agency dispute among Interpol who are all after her to track down a registry containing names of terrorists.

Katy, too, becomes the victim of some rather predictable double- and triple-crossing as everyone tries to either kill her and Grant for the registry or just dupe her to handing it over to some corrupt member of Interpol. Don't expect a great movie, and this one, in large part thanks to Jeff Fahey's out-of-place character, is full of cheesy character development. But, if you are in the mood for just loads of mindless action, it can at least satisfy viewers looking for that much. It knows its purpose and it delivers.
