Drop Zone is a very average action movie. It has enough entertainment value to maintain attention, and it has the hero, Snipes, kick-ass in his usual style. Although it is by far not the smartest movie out there, it is a definite blast from the past. This movie is a typical portrayal of 90s action flicks, enjoyable to an extent as long as disbelief is held at bay.

Drop zone sees Wesley Snipes star as a US Marshal. When a 38000ft snatch takes place and kills his bother, he must find the killers that have done it. Fast action paced movie

I remember when this came out it was quite a big action flick for Snipes, its funny when you look back on these old films and see how bad they really were hehe. One of two skydiving flicks released in the same year (much like the two Robin Hood flicks) but quite different from each other surprisingly.
This film is a slight rip on the far superior 'Point Break' in my humble opinion, just replace surfing with skydiving and you pretty much know what I'm talking about plot wise and action wise.

Problem is the action is rather dull, repetitive and dated even back then with a boring gang of baddies lead by the too old Gary Busey and a whole host of similar aerial set pieces that are clearly not the stars haha. Very much a by the numbers action flick that isn't as good as other by the numbers action flicks.

Good action-skydiving flick! Back when Gary Busey was good!

Wesley Snipes got so tired of ending up on hijacked planes that he decided it was time to learn how to jump out of one.

Wesley Snipes, Gary Busey and Michael Jeter. If that doesn't get you in you have problems!

So predictable and you can really tell it is an older movie. Not worth watching!

There's some quality Wesley Snipes fight scenes in this classic action flick.

Unfortunately, it seems like it was heavily edited in post-production, which leaves it feeling disjointed. This is only made worse by the OTT 90s choreography..

Despite all that, it's quite a fun film and had me giggling in places.

One star for the blue screen effects and one star for Gary buseys head. As fun as wesley snipes money problems.

NOT EVEN CLOSE: There was something a bit odd about this whole movie and then it hit me BLACK PEOPLE don't jump out of planes.. Plus a remake would be good just include more ass kicking. I would not mind being type casted as the type that kicks ass.

dont watch for the story. , see the sky dive.

A lot of action, both in the air and on earth, but of bad quality. Not even the enjoyment of discovering the criminals.

This is a perfect example of an enjoyably bad 90s action movie. The presence of a seemingly fictional version of the skydiver subculture (which seems to be 1/3 carny and 2/3 skateboarder) is what makes the movie's action unique. Otherwise, the story is extremely cliched and the characters uninteresting (although silly at times). To use a term from the film, it seems Drop Zone pretty much "burned in."
