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!
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)
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.
