Movie Info

Party-hard skydiving teacher Ditch Brodie (Charlie Sheen) has a knack for getting himself into trouble, but his booze-babes-and-planes shenanigans hardly prepare him for an international plot that pits Brodie and a mysterious KGB agent against a post-Cold War Russian villain called Kerr (Chris McDonald) and an American heavy named Ben Pinkwater (James Gandolfini). Aerial set pieces alternate with tongue-in-cheek flirtation and conspiracy-theory suspense as Brodie meets a beautiful new student,

Some of the comic writing undercuts the preposterous story.

A brisk, sleek wrong-man story that's easily the better of 1994's dueling skydiver movies and, had a darker Charlie Sheen from another universe not swapped places with our own, might have made the actor Kurt Russell's action-movie heir apparent.

A formula thriller with a skydiving theme, there is not a single plot turn that can hold up under close examination, but if you let the movie breeze by, untethered by common sense or logic, it can be an enjoyable experience.

An absolute piece of terminal trash.

Not exciting enough to be a Die Hard, not funny enough to be a Hot Shots! film either.

Fun action movie if you forgive the total silliness.

Audience Reviews for Terminal Velocity

The second skydiving action flick released in 94 and again its not exactly a brilliant film but fairs somewhat better than 'Drop Zone' in my opinion.
Charlie Sheen is cast after the possibility of Cruise was lost so obviously instead of a huge blockbuster this is more of an average run of the mill actioner, its not too bad to be honest as Sheen was always best in silly action fests and doesn't disappoint here with his funny quick quips and slightly classic James Dean Hollywood appearance.

Abit of class is added with Kinski and Gandolfini plus an interesting plot that does keep you guessing for awhile yet not too long but its actually good fun watching Sheen blunder his way through the mystery with some decent stunts and fist fighting. The most impressive stunt being a car dumped out the back of a plane with Sheen in the drivers seat, clearly not the star but its a fun sequence and better than watching skydivers mince around in the air with 'Drop Zone'.
Watch out for the ending in this as its a real duffer with some nasty bluescreen going on, allot of bluescreen used in this film but the ending just looked the worst..for a simple shot.

"Terminal Velocity" is without a doubt Charlie Sheen's best action movie so far and one of the best skydiving movies. It's a Cold War story about a sky-diving instructor (Charlie Sheen) who has a not so great record. He unwillingly becomes involved in a major Russian scam after one of his students (Nastassja Kinski) cheats death and makes everybody think that she fell to her death when really she didn't. Now they both must try to avoid running into the Mafia so they can have a chance to stay alive.
"Terminal Velocity" is an action packed and exciting action movie. It has a lot of thrilling and exciting parts to it such as when Charlie Sheen is inside a car that is free falling down to earth. The skydiving sequences in the movie aren't the only good parts to it, however. It also has other good action packed sequences while Sheen and Kinski are eluding and running away from the Mafia, and it has some gun-shooting parts to it as well. The plot might be a bit choppy in parts, but it's still easy enough to figure out and the acting in the movie isn't bad either.

If you like good action movies that are fun to watch and suspenseful at the same time, I recommend getting "Terminal Velocity." NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000. Don't remember this movie well now, but it was good.

Ludicrous thriller that sees sky diving instructor Charlie Sheen battling soviet spies. How anyone could actually take Point Break and dumb it down even more is beyond me.
I'll forgive you Nastassja. Just don't do it again...

Charlie Sheen is extremely cool to this high-flying action-adventure.
