What a fast-paced exciting Skydiving flick (with great in-air scenes) Makes me really want to jump! Silent parachutes bringing in the load" for cold cash was cool. And my family liked the movie - I personally think they must have cut something out of it here and there, I mean you gotta believe that this life-style depicted in Cutaway was probably even more wild than what's in the movie. Boy, would I have liked to be on the plane with that blonde pilot! She was soooooooo hot! And the chick who did the stunts for Maxine can really fly... the head-down flying & ball toss between each other was extremely cool too. I recommend the movie to anyone who is grinding a 9-5 job making great money and doesn't like what they're doing on the weekends and/or vacations!

This is a great action flick. Anytime an action movie leaves me wanting to participate in the action portrayed I feel it has lived up to its "action" billing. The aerial stunts are pure adrenalin, the backgrounds spectacular. This movie left me wanting to JUMP! So I did.
More than just an action flick, this movie tells a story. The drug smuggling premise is true to life and the director uses every frame to weave his tale. Pay attention! You might miss something.
While I enjoyed all the characters that made up this montage of the skydiving subculture, I particularly enjoyed the two leads, Cooper (Baldwin), and Red Line (Berenger). Cooper struggles with the dilemma of maintaining his honor/integrity as a cop while undercover in a culture that is becoming "him". Redline gives us insights into the obsessive nature of a champion. How far will obsession take a man? And how much will it cost?
See this movie! The characters will draw you in, the story will entertain, the action will move you------ off the couch, and out the door of an AIRPLANE!!!!!
This movie with its excellent skydive scenes gives the viewer a good idea of what this fun, exciting, and spectacular sport is really like. It would look even better on a big screen. Other movies, like Drop Zone or Terminal Velocity have a similar story complete with skydiving and cops chasing criminals, but Cutaway is better and more realistic than either. Even the part about having good freefall skills after all that wind tunnel training in Fort Bragg, S.C. is believable. Of course he (Officer Cooper) still had much work to do with this canopy control skills (Remember some of his landings!). All throughout the movie, the jump scenes were enjoyable to watch as they were so authentic looking. You could tell these scenes were actually filmed in the air above Florida and not in a studio or with a computer. The story itself is also quite believable; no doubt many kilos of drugs have been parachuted into Florida or elsewhere. Even the name of the movie was chosen well; you actually do cutaway if your main parachute malfunctions. Besides all of the above, it had some funny parts also.
This movie never made it big like other movies in 2000, which is too bad. Nowadays, for an action movie to be popular it appears to need a lot of expensive special effects. Cutaway may have been too realistic for most of today's viewing audience. If you want to see those amazing special effects you won't like this movie, but if you want a good fun action movie with some element of reality, this one's for you.
Presently, I am a skydiver with my A license. After watching this movie, I am eagerly looking forward to getting my B license so I can do relative work (or formation jumps). If you've never jumped before, watching this movie may well convince you to try this fun sport. If not, you'll certainly want to go out to a drop zone and watch others jump. Blue Skies!
