Goofs

At the end of the movie McNeil jumps onto a small plane using the same magnetic gloves he used at the beginning of the film. Smaller aircrafts are made out of aluminum and he should only have stuck to areas of the plane that had frame, and not the entire length of the outside panel. See more »

You'll have a great laugh at this one
30 June 2001 | by (Wishaw, Scotland) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best comedies ever to be put on video, the trouble is, 'Airborne' is not meant as a comedy. Its meant as a one of those high octane, action thrillers with plot twists around every corner. I cant even begin to describe how bad the acting is in this one. The only person who comes out with any kind of credibility is Kim Coates who, as always, is excellant. The rest of the cast, Im afraid, are nothing short of dreadful. Especially Steve Guttenberg. I've always thought he was a terrible actor and his performance in this one proves it. His facail expression never changes throughout. This film is a pretty dire effort.
