Just a terrific film! An honest picture of charming, but flawed, people. Perfectly acted by George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, and Anna Kendrick. Brilliant script, brilliant film!

I decided to watch this movie based on its 2009 Academy Award nomination for best picture. I don't think it holds up to that caliber, however, I still enjoyed it. Very slow-paced - made you think about life. Takes an unexpected twist at the end.

I found this movie to be really enjoyable. It is a very interesting premise and a great cast. It delivered a great experience. ---Spoiler Alert--- I was all for the unhappy end to Clooney and Farmiga's relationship. I was all for the empty feeling Clooney got when realizing he would be up in the air again with the 10,000,000th mile club card. It was a very unfulfilled and boring ending. And, that, was what made the movie great instead of good. The whole point is that his life is an empty backup, where he experiences no true pain, but also feels no true happiness. A boring ending to the movie represented that his life cannot provide real substance of emotion.

This is a very well shot movie filled with great performances from Anna Kendrix, George Clooney and Vera Farmiga, but the keenest part of this movie is the script which led this whole movie and its characters throughout along with the audience. The resemble of how relationships are judged by different people and the journey of Clooney`s character is engaging and pitch the audience all the time bringing us along throughout this whole movie. The direction is subtle and genuine. The chemistry among the three main characters is amazing and also revitalizing. It is a movie well done and achieved what it was made to be, specially because Clooney gave the performance of his career, filled with mystery. It is a not long movie, entertaining and extremely clever on the way it was conducted. For sur...

If there is one movie that is the best representation of the economic and emotional state of the USA at the moment, it is “Up In The Air”. This film is amazing, in every sense. It is indeed a superb directing performance for Jason Reitman, and shows his growth as a film maker. Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) is hired to travel across the country and fire the employees of companies. In other words, he does the dirty work of others. As a result, he is cut off emotionally from the world he lives in. He is indifferent to this lifestyle, until he meets the charming Alex (Vera Farmiga) and is teamed up to work with the young and fiery Natalie (Anna Kendrick) and they show him how much he really is missing out on in life.

There is not much bad that can be said about “Up In The Air”. It is a cl...
