Robert Downey Jr.,
Air America was the CIA's private airline operating in Laos during the Vietnam War, running anything and everything from soldiers to foodstuffs for local villagers. After losing his pilot's license, Billy Covington is recruited into it, and ends up in the middle of a bunch of lunatic pilots, gun-running by his friend Gene Ryack, and opium smuggling by his own superiors.

The sequence where Robert Downey Jr. is seen hanging from a rope flying across the skies above Thailand including a Buddhist temple was done for real with Downey performing the stunt himself after director Roger Spottiswoode had rejected doing it using such alternative techniques such as blue screen or back projection.

I regard this as a classic war movie! It's fun, good acting, more fun, and factually correct, well up to a point of course! What I like about it, and what I feel makes it original, is that not many films were made about Laos, and also its a cheerful take on war, pretty original for that too I'd say. A good movie i could watch again and again. Excellent music too! 5/5 stars.
