One ingredient short of being good..., 2 September 2014
Author: Paul Magne Haakonsen from Denmark

"Next Day Air" wasn't particularly funny, and I had expected it to be more of a comedy after having read the synopsis. So I was sorely disappointed once the movie ended.

The story is about a delivery of narcotics gone bad. As the unknowing delivery guy delivers a package to the wrong address, a large shipment of drugs end up in the hands of two men desperate for money. Those whom the delivery were intended for never receive the shipment and become pressed by their boss, meanwhile those who got it by mistake set off to sell the drugs through their contacts.

The story was entertaining enough, but I had just expected something more in the funny department.

The acting in the movie was good, and people were doing good jobs with their given roles and characters.

There was just something missing from the movie that kept it from being a good movie experience. What it was, I had no clue. But I sit here after having seen the movie and thinking that it could have been better. It is like a particular ingredient missing from your tomato sauce to make it stand out, you know?

"Next Day Air" had its moments, sure. But ultimately, then it wasn't an impressive movie. And as such, I am rating it 4 out of 10 stars.
