Goofs

When McNeil, and Gemmel are retrieving the Virus from the storage area. It shows an exterior shot of Gemmel using what looks like a laser pointer to cut the hatch of the virus storage unit. It shows her cutting a huge circle that's wider then the hatch, and an interior shot of the laser cutting a circle into the storage container. Yet in the next shot the hatch opens as normal with no evidence of the storage unit having ever been cut into. See more »

You'll have a great laugh at this one
30 June 2001 | by CQKRISSee 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.
