Overview

Wesley Snipes is battling bad guys in the air again, this time with parachutes, in this action-packed suspense thriller. Pete Nessip Snipes is a Federal Marshall who, teamed with his brother Terry Malcolm-Jamal Warner, is escorting criminal computer genius Earl Leedy Michael Jeter to a new prison facility. Pete, Terry, and Earl are on a jet en route to Earl's new lockup when terrorists attempt a daring hijacking; Terry is killed in an explosion aboard the plane, and suddenly Earl is missing. Pete discovers that a team of sky-diving outlaws, led by former DEA agent gone bad Ty Moncrief Gary Busey, have snatched Earl from his flight and spirited him away for a special raid on Washington D.C.; Ty and his men intend to take advantage of an obscure rule in which the normally restricted airspace in Washington D.C. is open to parachute enthusiasts on July 4. Eager to avenge his brother's death and put both Ty and Earl behind bars, Pete recruits sky-diving expert Jessie Crossman Yancy Butler to teach him how to infiltrate Ty's team of sky-bound criminals. Superb aerial stunt work highlights this film; please note that Pete's last name is an anagram for the leading man's last name.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Costello
Director John Badham has shown a penchant for action aloft in Blue Thunder (1983) and Bird on a Wire (1990), and here he may have made the ultimate skydiving film. Wesley Snipes stars as a federal marshall escorting a computer criminal (Michael Jeter) to prison on a 747 when he's suddenly kidnapped by a group of skydivers led by Gary Busey. While there's not much here in terms of story or character, the film contains what may be the most astonishing skydiving sequences in a feature film. Since the film is almost nonstop action, this may not be such a bad thing. Opponents Snipes and Busey have played their respective roles so many times that the audience can say the lines along with them, but in a movie like this that's part of the fun.
