Amazing how absolutely stupid and illogical film that was made literally on the knee, could be so funny and interesting.

It seems that Alex Tavakoli when writing the script, calculating that will manage their own ignorance of physics, just got to the fullest, having pushed in the plot maximum number of events that can kill the boredom and pretty laugh of pseudonatural who loves to seek out mistakes in the movie. Well seriously, one thing that fact that the usual hatchet (!) on the fly (!!) to cut off the engine of the plane (!!!), it is truly fun, and nor some resentment on absolutely criminal inexperience of the debutant did not can be considered.

Here plaiting a love "triangle" that would look in any other picture as least quite appropriate. However, the drama magically becomes a farce in mainly focusing on disaster and only the climactic scene of the triumph of the absurd still breaks pathetically heroic bravado — and on a miracle! Puke pull! On the contrary, that I indulgent, stupid a massive smile, as looked five minutes ago at the sudden transformation from blonde to a Prodigy.

Such moments of the entire session will naberetsya to heap: you like I understand that is kind of a game, but it not dare to look away. In addition, the actors themselves, even if they are not professional, remain naively charming, portraying the monstrous confidence in their own current beliefs. Being involved in the real trouble, they, with the ignorance of the theories of Stanislavsky, it is still perfectly combined with each other, picking up the options of saving one of the other beautiful, until, finally, it is not get fiction. In a word, crap here everything but but as!

"Hanging in the air" at the same time able to break the brain and warm heart. It as simple and absurd movie like again win hearts with their simplicity and awkwardness: like a child playing at an adult.

I do not know, do Alex Tavakoli anything else, but I would definitely look at it. And yet, given all the contradictions can only give it an average rating.

A young man from a very rich family invites a girl on a first date that, according to their General, although not voiced our heroes opinion, should be the beginning of a serious and pleasant relationship

Matt immediately goes with a trump card: he has prepared a flight to stay on a private plane in the company of a couple of friends.

The case is suddenly complicated by the fact that to the company of travelers is forced to join brother Matt, who is a former lover of our heroine and is very offended by her as the error is believed it was another hunter of money.

But soon the travelers are in a situation of apocalyptic nature which allows them to Express themselves with the best part...

"Hovering in the air," reminiscent of a cocktail of disaster movie, romance, approval of the necessity to unite in a difficult situation, bits of Thriller and ideological cliches.

The nature of the situation, from where you try to get out the heroes, first with shodstve " Langoliers" by Stephen king and the solution is to final — komiko-a heroic hybrid of king and Alexander Mitta.

But is the most important in the film — comic, which defines the taste of the cocktail.

The comic is manifested in the stamps, intended to cause the viewer's respect and empathy for the characters.

It is also in the interpretation of the image present here, African-American, which is perhaps the only original discovery in " Hanging in the air."

Read the annotation to film, I prepared to travel in a fascinating journey, like the story "the langoliers" (though the idea of the langoliers earlier came after watching).

I asked cautiously, already on the fifth minute, when a loving daughter, so cleverly "allowed" problem of the Pope. So not understand what was that scene. Maybe for descriptions of strong and the perfect family relationships? Or is it the banal familiarity of the viewer with the father? Then, why do we need a character of the delivery boy?

The next ten minutes of the film did not foreshadowed the coming Apocalypse... and... it started!

Was wondering when this "chamber N6" reaches its highest point, but the apogee of all not occur.

Everything was the laws of the tales — further, the worse (the so-called exponent). It is an unidentified companion who was well-known; that  a"fatal" wound to focus; the drugs and very "reasonable" solution, as rid of their influence (of course to ventilate brain, yeah and how); then the ubiquitous Russian; and is worth getting rid of ballast...

The impression is that the film consists of the first glance, the correct "pieces of sequence", but so somehow absurd or clumsily they are sewn together. All actions the reasoning of the characters in the most part of the film is devoid of sound logic, so not what normal, adult people, even if you consider the fact that occurs outside of the plane and even more, there are two of the pilot, which a priori can not have the right to inadequate.

In the film can be traced to a blatant disregard of the banal laws of physics, although the author swung on nuclear.

And here!!! Done...!! aerobatics, just flying thoughts, nigeriannews idea!!! As they immediately guessed — what should be the application of this "magic" tool steel. Here we can say that the creators of this creation cared for a little advice from the person who a little bit has an idea about the aviation. Yes then there consultation with the Internet effortlessly you can find.

Individual attention, inspiring, brave the speech delivered by brother Kyle before the departure of "on the job" with a hatchet. On my opinion, she (it) is inappropriate for this situation is that not know why, but my brain drew of Winston Churchill. However, perhaps I radically Not mistaken... I saw in the performance of the actors on the point that they are demoralized, disheartened and don't know what to do.

And still "smell" the Thriller is present in the atmosphere of the film — what happened world time so they had to "hang in the air"..?

In the result — do not regret the spent on the film time (the benefit of his I had a lot), from had fun over the illogicality and absurdity of the actions and reasoning of each of the characters in particular.

Alas, the expectations from the film does not met.

Writer and Director Mr Alex Tavakoli has made many efforts to "Unresponsiveness of the brain", although the idea of the film is very interesting and it is where to develop.

Verdict: Given that is its first film and it is the presence of a small amount of Thriller my rating

2 of 10
