Set in the world of X-treme snowboarding "White Air" tells the story of Alex Crow, ('Riley Smith' ), a once-promising snowboarder who has lost his edge. To make ends meet he is working in Steve's local garage (Tom Sizemore) to help support himself. Though able to fly sky high, Alex's preoccupation with his family's problems have left him in a rut, estranged from his girlfriend Christie (Dominique Swain) and unable to land his jumps. After losing several local Half Pipe competitions to his nemesis Jason ('Brent le Macks' ), Alex loses faith in himself and totters on the verge of abandoning his dreams to seek financial stability. Only close friend and trainer Pete ('Paul Logan' ) may have the answer for Alex to compete in one final, exciting pro-jam super pipe event. Written by
White Air is a good little movie, well cast (that guy Riley Smith looks like an up-n-comer), some killer action sequences (felt like I was right there in the slush), and most importantly it's heart is in the right place. It doesn't have any of the cynicism that usually plagues the action sports genre, it's a good hearted pic and it's not afraid to wear that heart on it's sleeve. I think the director got a lot of bang out of what was obviously some limited bucks, I'd be interested to see what he could do working with a little more coin. Overall a fun ride that beats the hell out of most direct to video efforts, one that I would've been happy shelling out a few bucks for in the theater. Like I said, White Air is worthy. Check it out.
