Elevator Pitch A gang rescue a prisoner from a Boeing 747 at 40,000 ft, blowing a hole in the side and jumping out. He is a computer hacker, and the gang use him to break into police computers. Meanwhile a US Marshall is on the case, and learning that the gang must be skilled skydivers, joins a team and learns how to skydive, and who the villains are.
Content Lots of skydiving, some of it quite spectactular. Some fist fighting, some shooting mainly with pistols.
A View I thought this went along OK, and even if you don’t like the plot much, the skydiving is quite spectacular. But it seems that I am in the minority, since it did not apparently cover its costs.
