The successful undercover agent Victor Cooper is assigned for his ninth mission: to find how the loadings of drug is being brought to Miami. He suspects that the drug is coming through the air and joins a team of sky diving, under the leadership of Red Line, a fanatic and considered the athlete number one in this sport in the world. Due to his profile of winner, Vic gets involved with the group and he "disconnects" from his position of infiltrated agent, "connecting" with the team.Written by

Leading up to the skydiving scene where Cooper has does his first tandem-jump with Star, the camera films the red & white plane they are flying in. The aircraft is a DHC-6-100 Twin Otter, and at the time of shooting the movie, it was owned and operated by Skydive Sussex, not far from New York. See more »
When Vic is learning to skydive, they show him freeflying and doing canopy relative work, all of which are skydiving disciplines that required hundreds of jumps to master; an instructor would never have a student with only several jumps attempt any of these maneuvers. See more »
I enjoyed this film. Baldwin is a cop investigating elusive drug traffickers. Berenger is the leader of a sky diving team that Baldwin suspects of being behind the trafficking. I picked this movie up because of Casper Van Dien's part. He appears at the beginning as a military trainer Baldwin hires to steady his skills. Van Dien later appears again at the end as a competitive adversary to Baldwin's team. Watching all of the sky diving and training was very interesting. Most of the suspense was during flight instead of during "law enforcement" confrontations as one might expect. The WIND tunnel where Van Dien trained Baldwin looked SO fun! Baldwin's turmoil is mostly trying to balance his loyalty to the sky diving team and the police force. The ending isn't really predictable, but it's not surprising either. Certainly worth a watch!
