Simple thoughtful

It isn't one of your action pack movies, its not suppose to be, it entertains the idea of dooms day bunkers, and what it might be like, at least one or so person's idea of such a event, the acting is top shelf, characters are believable, the scenes detailed and thought out, every thing, top to bottom well thought out and done, can't say enough good things about this movie, if the theme isn't a kind of story that interest you, I can see why some might call this movie boring, its not meant to be exciting, but thought provoking, a window into such things, anyways, well worth the watch.

Not great. Save yourself.

I don't really have the energy to articulate what a complete dud this was.
In reading the reviews I see a lot of gushing about how awesome it was in every possible way, and they were on the edge of their seats. How they were blown away by the "twist" ending, the immersive genius of the director, etc. How anyone that was bored must be brainwashed. "Wake-up from the brainwash, people. Jesus." LOL

All I can say in response is:
1. You don't get out much, do you?
2. Did we watch the same movie?

Slow moving, clunky, awkward dialog 2/5
Verified purchase
Not any better with the commercials.

Two men are stationed in some kind of long-term survival bunker after
a global nuclear apocalypse. Daryl from Walking Dead is his annoying
whiny, wise-cracky self. The other guy is Djimon Hounsou.

The plot tries to make some kind of chemistry between these two but
it's like neither one of them wants to acknowledge the other is in the
room, let alone in the shot.

The cinematography is dark and monochromatic, boring and the boring
parts go on far too long ... basically the whole movie.

Cannot recommend.

Disappointing Dystopia
Verified purchase
I thought this would be worth the time because I liked Norman Reedus. I was wrong. As far as near future dystopia stories go this one is a low point. We run out of air. The government prioritizes supposedly important people. Two pawns are left with the responsibility to keep the privileged alive but they end up turning on each other. There was nothing new, exciting, or suspenseful about it. Predictable from beginning to end.

Don't believe the bored
Verified purchase
I don't quite understand why there were so many reviewers who complained of boredom concerning this film because I was rapt involved in this psychological apocalyptic drama from scene one. This is a good film, its not like Aliens with a lot of monster drama-trauma in every other scene but more like a survivors perspective on morality. This is an intelligent script, a realistic well thought out drama on what happens to the human condition when there's nothing else left to lose and I loved it!

I want my air back.
Verified purchase
Seriously this dud isn't worth the air I used why watching it. Whats was this supposed to be? A thriller? A psychological something? A happy ending story of love? Cause it was neither of these things

Survival
Verified purchase
I really liked this movie. I think the reason why there are so many reviews saying it is boring is because those reviewers probably are more interested in action type films. There is minimal action. This was more of an intellectual mystery type movie. About the human condition and what it means to survive. Very interesting. Loved it!

doomsday drama
Verified purchase
No, this movie isn't boring in the least. It's imaginative down to the quick view of how the world might look after nuclear annihilation. More than anything, AIR is suspenseful. I have never seen a movie quite like this. The acting was right on, and you're left wondering which one of the two surviving actors is really losing their grip, or do they take turns.
