Take Me To The Movies: American Made

“American Made”..  This is my favorite Tom Cruise movie since “Tropic Thunder” and that was 9 years ago. Think “Top Gun” and “Mission Impossible” mash-up with a little “Show Me The Money” for spice.  Based on a true story, Tom Cruise plays TWA pilot and sometimes cigar smuggler Barry Seal, who is recruited by a CIA agent (Domhnall Gleeson) to make drug runs in and out of Latin America. Seal ends up smack dab in the middle of the Iran-Contra fiasco in the Reagan years. Crazy, wild stuff. It’s  fast-paced and funny..til it’s not. Great work from director Doug Liman  of “Bourne Ultimatum” fame. “American Made” is tailor-made for Tom Cruise.  A perfect escape.


3-and-a-half stars
