The rare pleasure of seeing Nastassja Kinski starring in a film is a good reason to check out this silly action film, but be warned, it also stars Charlie Sheen. He plays a skydiving instructor who initiates this lovely lady into her first sky jump, one that she doesn’t survive thanks to a fatal miscalculation in her technique. When he later finds himself embroiled in an espionage scheme, he starts to suspect that she didn’t necessarily die in that particular stunt and is orchestrating all his troubles from a distance. Complete with loud explosions and big-gun sequences, this one delivers everything it promises and nothing more.
