Air is a great dramatization where the acting sells you on everything!!!

What I Like:
-It is a great drama about the rise of Nike, and the process of getting Michael Jordan to be the face of the franchise, and what made it work was the acting especially by Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Jason Bateman, and Viola Davis, all of them combined really made this drama about a shoe company work
The So So:
-There is a lot business talk and jargon, but for this film to work it needed to develop where the business was, and show how it became to be, and they did a good job of not making it boring, instead, it was entertaining, especially when some of the characters go at it with each other, it was comedic gold, I give credit to Ben Affleck’s direction for that regard
What I Didn’t Like:
-Minor SPOILER – The fact that they didn’t show Jordan’s face really didn’t do it for me, I’m sure they have their reasons, but I’m willing to bet is because Jordan didn’t want it to happen, I can’t prove it, but I’m 95% sure that was the reason, because Jordan is like that, especially if he is not getting any money for it, which he didn’t
This is a drama film about Nike that really worked well. The acting, the dialogue, and the direction made this film interesting enough, and even entertaining. It was almost like this film is trying to sell me their Jordan 1, and I’m in. It is my favorite Jordan shoe, and still looking for the green ones. Anyways, it is a good film for people who like drama, and even for people who like sports. You get the best of both worlds!!!

(Sidenote: House Party – I am a fan of the original two House Party movies, and was sort of looking forward to this one. With that said, it may have some laughs and fun cameos, but there was a lot of misses with their jokes. The story was also very thin, predictable, and even at times dumb. With that said, watch it at your risks!!!
