'Air' Movie Review

Director Ben Affleck’s ‘Air’ flies high and is a slam-dunk of a movie! Ben Affleck delivers an entertaining and inspiring story, anchored by fantastic performances from Matt Damon, Chris Tucker, Jason Bateman and Viola Davis.

‘Air’ follows the true story of the rise of Nike and chronicles the upstart shoe company’s attempt to sign NBA rookie Michael Jordan to a sneaker deal. Nike employee Sonny Vaccaro (Matt Damon) believes the only way to save the fledgling company is to invest everything in a rookie who’s never stepped foot on a professional court, who might just become the greatest player of all time. Against the wishes of Nike owner Phil Knight (Ben Affleck) and Jordan’s agent David Falk (Chris Messina), Vaccaro travels to North Carolina to meet Jordan’s mother Deloris (Viola Davis) in person and desperately tries to convince her to influence her son to sign with Nike.
