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 »

surprising, straight to video action yarn
17 May 1999 | by rob-236See all my reviews

A cut above from the usual straight to video actioneer, Airborne has enough in the tank to keep it going for the full 90 minutes, although you can't help but think of how low former '80's comedy golden boy Steve Guttenburg has stooped to be in such a cheap production (and playing a hard man too!). The plot is simple, the baddies have stolen a deadly virus and Guttenburg and the rest of his goodie pals are sent to retrieve it, Not bad of its kind but not in the same league (obviously) as the films it is compared too on the cover such as AIR FORCE ONE and CON AIR. The cast is good though, with Sean Bean reprising his Brit.-bad guy character which we have had a glimpse of in such box office smashes as GOLDENEYE and PATRIOT GAMES.
