    Great flow and energy through the entire movie. Plus natural state and behaviour and good 80's feeling. Add here meaningful dialogues and so on.
    You don't see much Michael Jordan here but this is actually an interesting element of the movie.

    I don't care about sports, basketball ranking one of the lowest. I don't care about riches to even greater riches corporate stories. I don't even care about sneakers (I'll wear whatever). So I only watched Air because so many people recommended it. I will give it props for telling a different kind of sports story, and putting lots of charismatic actors on the screen to make some well-written dialog come alive. For 2 hours, I was fairly interested in what a bunch of marketing types had to say to one another, and hey, it's not easy to build a cool, non-cheesy soundtrack using only music from the first half of the 1980s. However, it's way too fetishistic about professional sports and in the final analysis, doesn't get away from being a 2-hour ad for Michael Jordan, and therefore for Nike. That's the long and short of it. No matter how compelling the characters are (and I could imagine this as a season-long arc on a well-written television series about a fictional shoe company), it's still about millionaires becoming billionaires and I'm sorry, but a barefoot CEO, a shlubby recruiter and a folksy mom aren't really distracting me from that. I just don't tap into those values. Yes, great, the Nike deal changed things for athletes to get a bigger piece of the pie, but why is this pie so big in the first place? Not for me. 1 year ago
