Okay, there are two films for which I have my earliest memories of. Star Wars, and Air America. Call my parents crazy, but for some reason they let me watch this movie at the age of 3 and I have been watching it ever since (30 or so times). I must admit, this makes my opinion somewhat biased, especially since it has probably shaped me deeply psychologically, which is a sad thought if you consider the topics of drugs, war, and Robert Downey Jr. But thats not really what this movie is about. It is a comedy with some decent action thrown in. The action, like many war movies, acts as a backdrop for the comedy by showing how crazy people become in war and what irony arises. It is about taking life as it comes. It is about life's odd ironies in weird places, and finding those for your own well-being. It is about having fun and flying (which is probably one reason i have always been fascinated by flight). It is about war. It is hilarious. It has an excellent soundtrack, a perfect one in fact. Watch it if your in a mood for having fun. Peace.

Awesome Soundtrack+ Mel and Robert + comedy/war + 30 viewings = blissReviewed bysismythVote: 7/10
This is not a very good movie. The script is poor, the comedy part of it is weak. The only thing that makes it OK is the acting and the action. The action sequences are nicely done and keep you entertained, but other than that its not very good. I can recommend it for those who are (big) fans of someone in the cast, but other than that its just not worth much. Also there is one thing noteworthy, and that it seems that some of the jokes are sexist. Nothing big, but it was a little offensive and just made the script weaker, but even without those jokes it was still terrible.
My rate is 6/10-good for the acting and action, but for the movie as a whole. R-Action Violent Content and Language
Air America is an easy, fun, not hard to watch movie. I have seen it many times and find it an easy no brain. I can watch the movie and do other stuff at the same time and still catch the jokes and the plot. I like Robert Downey Jnr always and this movie is no exception. He gels really well with Mel Gibson. I am an actor and I would have loved to be cast in this movie. Love the scene where Robert Downey Jnr is asleep, hammered from the previous nights session on the booze when Mel Gibson flying his helicopter hooks him up while still asleep on garden furniture. Fab scene !
Give it a go. It now an old movie but a good one that seemed to have slipped through so many peoples viewing when it was released.
Great music !! I am a big fan of old soul and motown and this movie has some fab tunes.
What this movie on a crappy Wednesday night when there is nothing else on and not much to do and you will have a fun time.
