Editorial Reviews

U.S. Marshal Pete Nessip (Snipes) finds his career in hot water when the prisoner he’s transporting parachutes out of a 747 and disappears safely into the night with his deadly cohorts in tow. While Nessip does his best to stop the bold escape, he can’t stop the force from suspending him. But even this isn’t enough to keep him out of action. Instead he does what he must to track down the cadre of techno-terrorists - even if it means skydiving from 30,000 feet in the air. Co-starring Gary Busey, Yancy Butler and Michael Jeter, DROP ZONE is a rush that will keep your adrenaline pumping from beginning to end.

This is one of the best Skydiving Action thrillers ever made, Wesley Snipes is brilliant as a US Marshal whoses brother is killed by airjet skydiving terrorists lead by actor Gary Busey, who captures a passenger. Snipes shaken up by his brother's death, decides to team up with skydiving experts, to find the terrorists, and stop them from robbing a high-rised bank on Independence day. This film has great action scenes, special effects filled skydiving sequences, and a good song at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie! September 22, 2002
By Jami
Format:DVD
I loved this movie. The skydiving stunts are great, and it actually has a plot! Seems most action movies don't even bother with a plot anymore. Wesley Snipes and Yancy Butler did a great job. Their characters are believable, you feel like you're right there. I can't wait to try skydiving myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crash but did not burn! April 30, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Basically, this plays like any other Wesley Snipe's movie. The bad guys under-estimate him so they get dealt with. Whats the difference with this one then, this one is actually good. It has good one-liners, a good-looking female lead that people would've actually heard of and, there's top action to boot. What more do you want from a movie I hear you ask?
Well, there is more and that is the soundtrack. What surprised me was that there's a lot of good rocky, funky tunes on there that fit in perfectly with the action on the screen.
Let me tell you about the action. It's excellent! Even if you're not a sky-diving fan, this will make you want to take it up. You always know when a films good and that's when you want to be or do what that actor is doing in the film. Drop Zone achieves this with flying colours.
One problem with this film however is that some of the effects are now looking a bit ropey. This, thankfully, is only on about a total of 5 seconds worth of effects from the whole film. This is quite an achievement considering that the film is all about effects and stunts. What do you expect, it is about sky-diving after all.
In complete, this film is a good, all-round action film even if you don't know anything about sky-diving or even if you don't have an interest in sky-diving.
For this price, you can't go wrong!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see for all skydivers and "wuffos" that wanna be January 24, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie besides being action packed conveys the excitement of skydiving to the viewer in an astoundingly real way. It is a must see movie for anyone that has or wants to ever skydive!

4.0 out of 5 stars Outrageous Stunts April 18, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This could have been a five-star film. But the directors excised Wesley and Yancey's love scene (it didn't fly with test audiences, pun intended), and these two have tremendous chemistry (plus, any chance to see Yancy Butler nude must be pursued). But the stuntwork is incredible, and even the hokiest stunt -- Snipes' mid-air pursue of a parachute-less Butler -- is romantic. Great INXS song at the end of the flick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drop What You Are Doing and Watch This Movie Now! January 30, 2009
Format:DVD
I just recently watched this film and I nearly dropped dead, from how awesome this movie is. Every actor/actress in this film is completely in the zone the entire time. Not one of them drops a line or zones out for even a millisecond. My friend dropped this movie off the other night and I was getting a little bored of playing Zone of the Enders so I decided to drop the disc into my DVD player. As the laser zoned in onto the disc, action packed poetry in motion erupted onto my HD television (which has a general viewing zone of 31.5"). The first skydiving scene absolutely blew me away. So much so that I accidentally dropped my Pizza Hut PaZone on my lap.

The pacing of this film is impeccable and never drops a beat. The only thing really lacking in the pacing was heart pounding tunes dropping every couple of minutes, such as Kenny Loggins, Highway to the Danger Zone. I don't want to drop too many hints and spoil the thrilling ending to this film but it is definitely one to remember. The first thing I did after finishing the film was look it up on IMDB to see how many awards it won. Needless to say, my jaw dropped when I saw that this film had won nothing. I said to myself, "what am I in the the Twilight Zone or something?"

My "no spin zone" final review of this film is A+. The DVD version looks drop dead gorgeous on an HDTV. I also highly recommend ordering this movie on Amazon. They will drop ship it speedily to your front door within a day!(depending on when you place your order and what time zone you are in)

4.0 out of 5 stars Drop Zone. July 13, 2010
Format:DVD
Drop Zone is a good movie but almost or actually implausible(yes it's just a movie),Mainly a Sky-Diving movie the year it came out,one to two other similar movies came out(terminal velocity which I saw in the theater being one.)
the movie is long but the action is good and My favorite scene is the jump from the Southeast Financial Center building(called at the time or known as First Union Building then another name now Wachovia.) which was the tallest building at the time in the southeast and in Miami before the hideous Skyscrapers dotted the skyline and blocked the sun in downtown. that's one of the highlights for me in the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars it's the only trick i know. February 9, 2000
Format:DVD
as actions go this one is pretty good. the action is fast paced and the movie does not hang in any area. the aerial filmwork is excellent and addictive. if you were considering skydiving this movie might make you do it. the music is fair but does suit the movie well. if you enjoy snipes movies then you will probobly enjoy this one.

I gave it a 2 only because I didn't turn it off. See through plot, mediocre acting, bad script, all in all, glad it was free

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie
I saw Wesley control another character in a different light. He wasn't the average action hero, but rather a person caught up in a bad situation. He really played this roll.

Wesley, you should have chosen your movies more carefully in 94! Lets see...you fall out of an airplane with no parachute and a blond bimbo jumps out to save you...really? Read more

Not the best of Wesley Snipes movies, but one of the better ones. Lots of good action, fair dialogue. A lot better than watching some reality show.
