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.
