Storyline

In the idyllic suburban dystopia of Orange, the affable but clueless Paul agrees to be a drug courier for Mr. Ball who's about to take delivery of a drug rumored to be "more addictive than air." Against the better judgment of his best friend D., Paul does the deal for quick cash, but the supplier turns on him and murders D. in the ensuing shootout. Paul goes on the lam with the cash and the stash, but only after promising his dying friend that he'll flush it before Ball puts them in the street. Now, on the run, Paul meets the lonely, beautiful Anne with whom he indulges in the drug. They discover its curious effects, each becoming leery of the other even as they are falling in love. The fallout from the binge and the arrival of one of Ball's vengeful colleagues ultimately forces the couple to confront their demons. Take a trip to the Real Los Angeles, a place where the shimmering exterior conceals a drug culture hungrily awaiting the next new thing. Written by Rene

Oooh...Exciting!!!!!
2 June 2006 | by sethn172See all my reviews

What price would you pay for a movie like this? Air, perhaps? LOL Anyways, "The Price of Air" is one of those movies that, once the show begins, you are strapped on for the ride of your life. Everything about this flick totally appealed to me! I like all of the action sequences that this movie provides. As a matter of fact, I can just see myself hanging ten in midair right now as I am typing this up!!!!!

In my true, honest to Pete opinion, "The Price of Air" is one of the great foreign action flicks of our generation. While some people may confuse this with a basketball flick, this movie is really a cliff-hanging thriller here for years to come.
