When Charlie is in freefall chasing Nastassja after she 'falls' from the plane, when he opens his chute, it's shown from above as solid orange. A few moments later, when shown from below it's orange with purple end cells on one end and a black center cell. Moments later, it's shown again from above as solid orange. See more »
The bad wrap this movie seems to have here is in my opinion a bit over done. Terminal Velocity is not a bad action movie. Actually it's pretty damn good. Over the top at times, but still very good. And by over the top, I mean some of the skydiving sequences. For example, the climax where the car drops out of the plane.. the fall seems to last an eternity. In the end though, stuff like that really doesn't matter if the rest of the movie is good. Luckily it is.
This movie is also the last good movie Sheen did up until Being John Malkovich. And now after Scary Movie 3, maybe in time he'll end up back in the big leagues. Terminal Velocity won't change anybody's life, but as said, it is a good action movie.
