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
I like watching snowboarding when I'm not skateboarding in the summer time so I thought I'd give this movie a try. It has a million dollar budget so it can;t be that bad. I was wrong.
The writing was terrible. Arguments seemed like they happened too quickly and conflicts would happen in almost every scene. The directing was horrible and same to the audio. Too many scenes prolonged while the audio peeked during arguments. When the audio didn't peek, it was muffled. Though saying all this, it wasn't badly acted. Some of the extras were bad but for the most part, the leads did a decent job. The stunts were also pretty good but not over the top.
You'll get a typical storyline out of this but it was well below average even for a low budget film. The budget must of been spent mainly on the leads and stunt devils.
