In the movie DROP ZONE, U.S Marshals and brothers Pete and Terry Nessip are assigned to move federal prisoner and computer genius Earl Leedy to a new location in Atlanta to insure his safety and future testimony against drug dealers when their 747 is attacked by terrorists. Wesley Snipes stars as the lawman in pursuit of a group of skydiving daredevils who have high-level computer hacking and government espionage in their crime repertoire. Pete and Terry are just settling in with their prisoner on the red-eye flight when the plane is overtaken by a terrorist group. Before Pete can intervene, an explosion rips a hole in the plane and the terrorists, along with several passengers, Pete’s brother and their prisoner, disappear through the hole and into the night. It was not the plane they wanted, it was the prisoner. But, why?
DROP ZONE, a term referring to a skydiving target area, is an exciting and action-packed adventure movie with awesome skydiving stunts and an intriguing plot. The cinematography is first-rate and the soundtrack is refreshingly current. There is no nudity or sexual immorality, however, some brutal fighting and several murders combine with a plethora of obscenities and profanities to mar this otherwise exhilarating movie.
