Worth watching if it's on
15 September 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on late night TV tonight and thought since there isn't a comment here yet that I would add one. I was expecting it to be below average but it was actually pretty good.

The acting was good all-round, I felt it was a little weak at the start but once it got to the breakout it improved a lot, probably due to the performance by Antonio Sabato Jr. who was the bad guy.

The script was fine, although I did laugh at a few lines, like when the pilot's girlfriend is visited by the police she refers to them as "you guys" which just seemed funny because she was too relaxed when her boyfriend was in trouble.

My main criticism of this movie would be that some plot twists were not very believable and seemed to be just an excuse for something exciting to happen.

Plot summary: a helicopter pilot, Colt Erikson, who was a criminal in his youth but is now a movie stuntman with a small helicopter tour business has his past resurface when he is forced to break a criminal, Randy Savino, out of prison. Randy is an old friend of Colt and plans to use him to escape into Mexico.
