Charlie Sheen is extremely cool to this high-flying action-adventure.

"Terminal Velocity" is without a doubt Charlie Sheen's best action movie so far and one of the best skydiving movies. It's a Cold War story… More

An interesting movie!

Ludicrous thriller that sees sky diving instructor Charlie Sheen battling soviet spies. How anyone could actually take Point Break and dumb it down even more is… More

More ridiculous than a million Nazi's doing The Macarena.
