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
A fair movie for what it is cut to a throbbing pop-punk, hip-hop and rap soundtrack
If you just watch it as entertainment and a collection of world-class snowboarding to a throbbing pop-punk, hip-hop/rap soundtrack, and a thin plot connecting everything, White Air is entertaining.
Their's also a specials disk with pure snowboarding action and insane big country footage.
Alex Crow dreams of turning professional snowboarder have faded and he now works as a mechanic. With a second chance at turning pro Alex must choose to either follow his dream or give up and work a stable profession. The frequent snowboarding action sequences clearly serve the snowboarding fans. The super pipe sequences are well shot and the plot contains standard elements we have seen in countless movies like, Karate Kid, Blue Crush and others aimed at a younger audience. It's a low budget movie that plays well over music and action fun. Nothing to serious but enough to entertain for close to 1 1/2 hours.
