This was quite the hidden jewel with a feel of Point Break, Under Siege and Executive Decision if you enjoyed those movies. Gary Busey plays his role well if you like him. A must watch!

Movie Reviews

A skydiving movie that really flies high
retrowens | Alabama, USA | 01/16/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I haven't ever skydived before, but I do like watching movies about skydiving. I also liked "Terminal Velocity," but "Drop Zone" is a lot better. Wesley Snipes stars as a U.S. Marshal who tries to catch some terrorists that hijacked a plane that he was on and their actions resulted in the death of his brother. Snipes believes that it was a set up, but he's the only one that thinks that, so it's up to him to figure it out by himself. To do this, Wesley Snipes learns a new hobby and starts skydiving himself while trying to figure out and catch the terrorists in action."Drop Zone" is a good movie. Its plot might be choppy in parts, but that's about the only thing wrong with the movie. The skydiving sequences are the best and most exciting I've ever seen in any movie, and Wesley Snipes is hilarious in some parts such as when he skydives for the first time and screams the whole way down. The movie's soundtrack is another good thing about the movie.Whether you like skydiving or not, if you like good action movies I recommend getting "Drop Zone.""
Great Movie!

"I loved this movie. The skydiving stunts are great, and it actually has a plot! Seems most action movies don't even bother with a plot anymore. Wesley Snipes and Yancy Butler did a great job. Their characters are believable, you feel like you're right there. I can't wait to try skydiving myself."
Crash but did not burn!
Kevin Gillespie | England but I'm Scottish!!! | 04/30/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Basically, this plays like any other Wesley Snipe's movie. The bad guys under-estimate him so they get dealt with. Whats the difference with this one then, this one is actually good. It has good one-liners, a good-looking female lead that people would've actually heard of and, there's top action to boot. What more do you want from a movie I hear you ask?Well, there is more and that is the soundtrack. What surprised me was that there's a lot of good rocky, funky tunes on there that fit in perfectly with the action on the screen. Let me tell you about the action. It's excellent! Even if you're not a sky-diving fan, this will make you want to take it up. You always know when a films good and that's when you want to be or do what that actor is doing in the film. Drop Zone achieves this with flying colours.One problem with this film however is that some of the effects are now looking a bit ropey. This, thankfully, is only on about a total of 5 seconds worth of effects from the whole film. This is quite an achievement considering that the film is all about effects and stunts. What do you expect, it is about sky-diving after all.In complete, this film is a good, all-round action film even if you don't know anything about sky-diving or even if you don't have an interest in sky-diving. For this price, you can't go wrong!"
