New on DVD: See how Jordan brand took flight with ‘Air’ on DVD


The uplifting and inspiring tale of … a sneaker tops the DVD releases for the week of Sept. 12.

“Air”: Starring Matt Damon and directed by Ben Affleck, who also co-stars, this sports drama follows the unprecedented deal that Michael Jordan made with Nike in the 1980s to launch a shoe brand empire. Also featuring Viola Davis and Jason Bateman.

“It’s somewhat of a miracle that ‘Air,’ a film about the iconic Air Jordan sneaker, works as well as it does, considering that most viewers already know the outcome of this movie, which revolves around a single meeting held in Beaverton, Ore., in 1984,” writes Tribune News Service critic Katie Walsh in her review. “This is a story that on paper doesn’t have a shred of suspense, but Affleck applies just the right elements to make it sing.”
