Air: Directed by Christian Cantamessa. With Norman Reedus, Djimon Hounsou, Sandrine Holt, Michael Hogan. In the near future, breathable air is nonexistent and two engineers tasked with guarding the last hope for mankind struggle to preserve their own lives while administering to their vital task at hand.

“Norman Reedus and Djimon Hounsou star as two maintenance technicians holed up in an underground bunker after the world above has torn itself apart with nuclear weapons.In this bunker with them in u0026quot;deep sleepu0026quot; chambers,are the selected few that hold mankinds hope for the future (scientists/government officials etc).As the air outside is now irradiated and unbreathable,its their job to maintain the chambers and ensure the air in the bunker remains safe until the occupants can be woken up.As clean air is at a premium,Reedus and Hounsou have their own sleep chambers,and must sleep/wake up at timed intervals to ensure the maintenance is continuous.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut all is not well in this u0026quot;safeu0026quot; haven.During a wake period,their computer data on the air outside appears false,and something is wrong with one of their sleep chambers.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSabotage?……or are one or both of them losing their minds?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAir is a dark and claustrophobic movie.The makers did a good job of conveying a sense of being u0026quot;closed inu0026quot;.The banks of computer screens and and sleep chambers had a very retro look and feel about them which added to the sense of fragility to the world in which theses technicians lived.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe problem was that neither Reedus or Hounsou managed to convey any real sense of fear or concern to the situations at hand.Their acting skills are normally extremely top notch but here just turn in an average performance.And that was a pity because the opportunity was there for these two to really shine (they were the only 2 main characters after all).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAll in all this is of those u0026quot;could have beenu0026quot; movies.Itu0026#39;s by no means unwatchable.The production values were high,just a shame it was let let down by the below par acting.”
