Product Description


Air America is one of those movies that could have been great, and now maintains its low-key reputation as a typical Mel Gibson film in the wake of his first two Lethal Weapon hits. Originally conceived as a biting black comedy about the CIA's top-secret smuggling operation in Laos during the Vietnam war, Air America lost most of its political sting when it was transformed into an action comedy for Gibson and costar Robert Downey Jr. The film is entertaining as far as it goes, with a few action sequences that explain where a lot of the budget went. If you're in the mood for some Mel, this one is a little off the beaten path, and still contains a percentage of its original potential. --Jeff Shannon

One of my favourite films. Gibson and Downey are fantastic. Action, humour and a great story. Brilliant, so get a copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars great to have on blu-ray Feb. 15 2010
I've always enjoyed this dark Vietnam War comedy, and now thanks to blu-ray it looks better than ever. The writing and performances are worth a look-see, and it's hard to believe the film is now 20 years old (which makes the era now 40 years old). Politically, it seems to have a timeless quality. The blu-ray extra features seem to be the same as the dvd - a couple of original featurettes (almost too short to mention), but the Return Flight Retrospective, along with the audio commentary provide more info on the controversial fact-based material. Highly recommended. (4 1/2 stars)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic June 29 2002
By A Customer
This movie is great. A good story, great acting, lots of adventure and comedy, and some touching moments of reflection. Note: There was a real Air America type of thing during the Vietnam war, but this is just a fun and interesting movie. Some interesting social commentary as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars don't bother me while im colorin!!! June 7 2002
Air America was the United States "airforce" stationed in Laos
during the Vietnam war aiding our allies (amongst other things)
Mel Gibson plays veteran air american Gene Ryback and Robert Downey plays Billy Covington the FNG to the outfit.(He ends up being recruited in the states by a fast talking agent of the CIA after he (Downey) is grounded for being an...in the air.
The Film explores the adventures and antics..or hi-jinks as the pencil necked air america geek notes of t he pilots. Which includes drunken whorehouse parties, target practice with silencers on a miniature golf course and my favorite, gun running and landing an aircraft on a mountain.
A serio-comic movie it delivers the goods and was is enjoyable to watch
Thumbs up^

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie but poor DVD Feb. 7 2002
By Rafal
I think that this movie is very entertaining.Mel and Robert are really funny. I've seen this movie for the first time a long time ago on television. After reading few editorial reviews about picture quality I bought this dvd , they rated it 5 out of 5. I thought .. they are specialists in that subject. I was wrong . Picture quality in that movie isn't that good as they write. The most important thing is that colors are not bright at all and image isn't sharp.Sound quality is OK as for Dolby Surround track. If you love that movie buy it otherwise wait for another dvd release of that film.

Directed by Roger Spottiswoode (The Best of Times, The Sixth Day, Terror Train) made This winning underrated comedy was a Box Ofiice Hit in the Summer of 1990. Gibson and Downey Jr. delivers good comic performances in this adventure comedy. Originally meant to be a Darker Comedy. Super 35. Grade:B+.
