Best depiction of Asian airdrop/STOL air landing
Sam Damon Jr. | Fort Bragg, NC | 10/11/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a movie about air delivery: airdrop by parachutes, and amazing short field landings by STOL aircraft like the amazing Pilatus TurboPorter and the larger C-123. If you like Airborne things, this movie is for you, its funny and upbeat compared to your typical Vietnam movie and in a way does greater honor to the courage of the pilots who lived on the edge while flying these hairy missions. The TurboPorter landing on the side of the mountain makes the whole movie worthwhile...add to it '60s music and sexy Nancy Travis, what more do you want? I find this movie far more interesting than the Lethal Weapon series, so it soars in my book as one of Mel Gibson's best movies."
Don't bother me while im colorin!!!

"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^"
An entertaining Black Comedy on the War of Vietnam.

(4 out of 5 stars)

"When a Rookie Pilot (Robert Downey Jr.) got fired from his job. Now he`s been hired by the U.S. Army to be sent in Vietnam in the Jungles of Loas. When he meets his new partner in Piloting (Mel Gibson) but the Two are Cross fired between U.S. Missions and Behind Enemy Lines.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+."
