Product Description

When Billy Covington (Robert Downey, Jr.) accepts a job to fly planes in Laos, he expects to join a crew of civilian pilots flying in peaceful air zones. What he gets is Air America, a ragtag group of renegades dodging gunfire to run secret – and shady – missions for the CIA. As danger grows and the line between allies and enemies blurs, Billy turns to a wild and grizzled pilot named Gene Ryack (Mel Gibson). Together, Billy and Gene take a stand against the chaos and become something no one ever believed they could be: heroes.

By Cheryl TOP 500 REVIEWER on Feb. 15 2010
Format: Blu-ray
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)

It starts off pretty well, then decides it doesn't want to be a Mash type of film but wants to be a big buddy buddy action flick. Yet it's not that either.
It winds up being a mess of uninspired satire, that has Mel Gibson spouting off a series of trying too hard to be funny one liners .
The story is about the CIA's secret drug smuggling for cooperation and arms in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam war. It can never decide if it's just a glib buddy buddy action film or satire with an edge and winds up being a crass over-produced failure. Robert Downey Jr. is enjoyable for a while but no one is given anything resembling a real character to play. And the parade of stereotypical characters, ethnic insults and missed opportunities becomes numbing after a while.

I think the only reason I bought this movie once a long time ago was because I thought it would be neat to see Mel Gibson in an aviation flick. Although the story was a little weak and almost predictable it was still enjoyable. Most of the really funny stuff comes from the aviation humor packed into it, especially the hillside landing with the Dornier TurboPorter. Ever since seeing that I've wanted to see behind-the-scenes footage of the making of all these landings (or crash landings in most cases). Don't buy it if you're looking for a great addition to your collection, buy it if you have a little bit of knowledge on flying.

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.

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.

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^
