The Binge Watcher Review: Air (2015)

Air (2015)
Starring: Norman Reedus, Djimon Hounsou, Sandrine Holt

In the near future, breathable air is Nonexistent and two engineers tasked with guarding the last hope for mankind struggle to preserve their own lives while administering to their vital task at hand. 

The Good:
If you love anything that Norman Reedus has done than this movie is for you.

The Bad:
For the most part everything about this movie was bad. This is one of those movies which was better in theory and not when executed. The idea of two men being isolated from human contact outside of each other just missed the mark. 

Final Thoughts:
With the rising star of Norman Reedus and the inclusion of Djimon Hounsou seemed like an instant hit, but like many low budget movies the downfall was in the writing. In many ways this should have been an action packed movie, but it just took to long to develop. By the time the film actually became interesting I was already bored and wanting to move on to something different. 

This was a perfect example of a movie that was relying on psychology and two stars to carry it, in the end it was nothing more than a B movie at best not worth a spot in your Saturday morning lineup.
