Starring: Steve Guttenberg, Kim Coates, Sean Bean

I picked up Airborne on Half.com for $2 or so a few years ago. I started watching it, and after about five minutes, promptly put my head down and fell asleep.
When I woke up, it was finished. I had no desire to watch it again, so I popped it out and threw it into one of the many boxes that host movies like Kickboxer 5: Redemption and Circuit Breaker.
And then a couple months ago, right in the middle of the Terror on a Plane Video Relapse, I sought it out. I wanted to review Airborne because it looked like a plane hijacking flick. When I dropped it out of its case, three pieces of the casing fell out with it. In the trashcan it went, and that Relapse ended without Airborne being reviewed. I was stopped from watching Airborne twice. Common sense dictates that maybe it wasn’t meant to be.
I refused to listen, though, and when I found Airborne at the video store near my college, I couldn’t resist. What I’d been stopped from watching twice is an action film that stars Police Academy’s Steve Guttenberg. If you didn’t just cringe from reading that sentence, you obviously don’t have much experience with Mr. Guttenberg.
As for the film, it’s another one about terrorists stealing a vial of a biological weapon. A Mach-1 team led by Commander Bill McNiel (Guttenberg), who we know is a tough guy because he always manages to have a five o’clock shadow, is sent in to retrieve the vial and those responsible for its theft. They eventually believe that it was an inside job at the government, and seek to rectify that matter.
Kim Coates plays the shifty government guy and Sean Bean puts in the best performance of the film as the head terrorist.
