Storyline

Ditch Brodie is a maverick skydiving instructor. One day, a beautiful girl comes in, wanting to take her first jump. Up in the air, Ditch takes his eyes off her momentarily, then looks back to find out that she has fallen out, dying on impact. Ditch is suspicious that all is not as it seems, because he distinctly remembers hooking her static line on... Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Trivia

Many scenes were filmed at an airfield near Marana, Arizona. This field has been used for civilian skydiving, aircraft storage, military training, and CIA functions. Evergreen International Aviation, a sometimes CIA contractor based in McMinnville, Oregon, has had operations at this field. The forklift used in the film is clearly stenciled "EVERGREEN".

Goofs

The girl throws pebbles at the electric fence surrounding the facility they break into in the desert, the electrified fence sparks. Pebbles thrown at a single layer electrified fence would not cause a reaction. See more »

It was an interesting movie
15 August 2000 | by (Budapest,Hungary) – See all my reviews

I think it was a very interesting film and the main characters were very good.I don't understand why it wasn't a success according to the critics. They often give awards worse films too.When I saw it at the first time I enjoyed it very much.I suggest to everybody to watch it ,but without any bias.
