Drop Zone Reviews
It's Con Air meets Point Break meets WESLEY FUCKING SNIPES AND GARY BUSEY. There was so much crazy in this film they couldn't keep their feet on the ground.
I'm so glad I found it this late in life, like a formerly blind man seeing a sunrise, so was my reaction to Wesley Snipes throwing Gary Busey like a torpedo, my constant bewilderment at how they'd cram more and more skydiving and subculture into the movie, the inconsistency of Snipes' mood and general actions leading me to believe they simply rolled cameras and he refused to do a second take.
This barely scratches the surface but I don't want to spoil it too much.
A hidden gem that was right above our heads all along.
I'll be pulling on my rip cord for weeks thinking about it
Wesley Snipes is good here, as is the rest of the cast. John Badham's direction is serviceable, as usual. But, the writing, which took a lot of screenwriters!, needed the trimming. Hans Zimmer does a good job with the film score, although this score two years later for John Woo's "Broken Arrow" sounds fairly similar.
By the end, I was losing interest, when I should have had the most.
Apres Soleil Levant et Demolition Man, on retrouve un Snipes en flic determine et un Gary Busey en mechant psychotique.
Les sequences en chute libre sont bien filmees mais le scenar est loin d'etre passionnant.
