    Ditch `Brodie played by (Charlie Sheen) is a no risk no nonsense skydiver in this fast paced action adventure of espionage ex-KGB agents and few cases of stolen gold bullion.

    Ditch, takes on a new student at the skydiving school played by (Nastassja Kinski) but all ends in a horrible tragic first time experience, Ditch, is now blamed for careless and the (FAA) want to throw the book at him. But Ditch, is not convinced that she fell accidentally and goes looking for answerers, but the answers are bigger than he expected…

    With some great camera work done on the skydiving scenes and some cleaver stunt work all coordinated with great skills, this is one of those pure adrenalin rushes that grabs you from the opening to the final showdown.

    Gary C. Bourgeois, Tom Perry and Brad Sherman, have produced a fine Dolby film here with lots of atmospheric and wind sounds surrounds you, there also a low end within the directional sounds one such good moment is where Ditch, skydives into a tunnel the chute gets caught up and the bass that on the centre channel reverberates throughout the whole room has he kicks the inside of the tunnel franticly.

    One other part that offers good timbre matching is where a disc cutter is used at an airfield the sound is centred and then pans to screen right then back again to centre, Foley sounds are also clear from Ditch’s footsteps in an aircraft hanger, has his feet come to a stop the scrapping sound of the shoes against the soft grains of sands and stones echoes nicely with Lucasfilm (THX).

    Score: Joel McNeely, score is fast a little laidback at times but when opened up to full Shawn Murphy, gives it some slam with grunting energy like all his score mixes he mostly records in the (Dolby SR) analogue domain this gives a good recording that (Murphy) confesses is better than most in an article that I read about this sound scoring maverick.
