John Badham’s Drop Zone shamelessly attempted to exploit the appetite for sky-diving action that Point Break revealed and not one of those sky-diving scenes came anywhere close to being as good as the handful of sky-diving scenes in Point Break – in fact those scenes which used the fake backdrop are simply laughable. That said this film is a lot of fun. Wesley Snipes plays the federal marshal trying to track down the elite sky-diving team of drug smugglers who killed his brother in a daring mid-air prisoner snatch. As usual Snipes does the funny and tough thing very well and he even has a little fun with the role by making his character a tad whiny. Gary Busey (yes, him from Point Break) does the bad guy thing better than most journeymen actors and he doesn’t disappoint here either. Don’t think too much about this one, just sit back and enjoy the ride.
