What the back of the DVD case says:
Dynamic Charlie Sheen (The Three Musketeers, Young Guns, TV’s Spin City) delivers fast-paced excitement to this high-flying action-adventure! Sheen stas as Ditch Brodie, a daredevil skydiving instructor who falls hard when a sexy, mysterious beauty (Nastassja Kinski) walks through his door looking for a lesson–and apparently plunges to her death during a parachute jump! Suddenly, Sheen finds himself hurled headlong into a nightmare world of intrigue and deceit–caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse with the Russian mafia! With pulse-pounding suspense and sensational skydiving, high-speed adventrue doesn’t move any faster than Terminal Velocity!
What it should say:
Charlie Sheen is crazy!

Charlie is awesome, granted that he does do some fucked up things. But you’ve still gotta love the guy.
I second what Dom said. You can’t help but admire him, both in spite of and because of the things he does.
“Even better than DROP ZONE!”

Dude wasn’t even trying. It’s like that Alice Cooper song “Under My Wheels”. I think he was just trying to jam as many cliches as possible in there on a bet.
