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>

Goofs

The 747 in the airplane graveyard would not have any functioning electrical systems, including the pre-flight video that was triggered during the shoot-out. All systems are deactivated and electrical power removed when aircraft are mothballed. The plane wasn't "mothballed", it was landed there to hide it. They intended to fly it within a few days.

A movie quite underrated
4 November 1999 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

This is one film that has not scored many good reviews, but honestly, I'm a little surprised why most movie critics has slaughtered this film all together. Myself, I think that's unfair, cause I found it absolutely enjoyable. OK, the story is a bit thin at times, but alot of films has had thinner stories than this one, and still received better reviews. Sheen doesn't act too bad in this film either, and Kinsky surprises as well. None of them are great actors, but they don't let the film down. In general, a fair action-movie, with some very spectacular skydiving-scenes. Not bad at all.
