A very cutsy portrayal of the drug-smuggling business. Mr. Cruise plays his role charismatically, and quite well, I commend him for that. The actor selected to play Pablo escobar could have been selected a bit better, but otherwise, the very smooth transition in the story, is VERY well maintained. I will admit, this was a good movie - but once again, despite a very fluffy take on drug smuggling.

American Made was a fun sit. Stylishly edited, all the performances were very charming. Domhnall Gleeson is obviously having a blast playing this arrogant CIA officer, deftly balancing being both slimy and endearing. Sarah Wright is really funny as well, flipping back and forth from being overwhelmed to completely along for the ride. It's nothing you haven't seen before, but it was worth a watch.

Loosely based on fact centering on the exploits of Barry Seal(Tom Cruise) who was initially a professional airline pilot before flying for the CIA exporting ammunition during the Fidel Castro regime, before also going rogue by also delivering hard drugs such as cocaine and heroin for cartels living in Honduras.

Una manera diferente de abarcar la aburrida y repetitiva historia del narcotrafico en Colombia desde un punto de vista interesante logra crear un personaje diferente y bastante agradable por parte de Tom Cruise,la representación de Pablo escobar es patética pero su historia es bastante entretenida y refrescante ,El estilo de la cinta le da puntos de mas.

Pretty damn good for a Tom Cruise movie

American Made is a very enjoyable movie. The story-line is easy to follow which makes the movie more engaging. In addition to this the film is loosely based on real life events which makes it more relatable for some people. The movie accurately shows how politics and crime is connected and how big powers bend rules to suit them. Overall, American Made is a good mystery and thriller film with a touch a comedy.

American Made is a decent film. It is about Barry Seal, an American pilot who became a drug-runner for the CIA in the 1980s. Tom Cruise and Domhnall Gleason give good performances. The script is a little slow in places. Doug Liman did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the action and mystery.

Best movie I've seen in a while

The capitalist greed that inspired the true story behind this film is reminiscent of "The Wolf of Wall Street". Taking place in a rural Arkansas setting, Tom Cruise's portrayal of Barry Seal, in combination with "Narcos" style of narration by his character, has made this film really enjoyable to watch.

Interesting dramatized account of a true story. Worth the watch, but pretty much a straight line through the movie and only a one time watch. It did get me interested in the real story from a historical perspective. I love it when movies spark that.

Beware of the words "Based On A True Story" in films with this type of subject matter because that is merely code for revisionism and.....yawn....more anti American propaganda. Barry Seal never worked for the CIA so thee major pillar in the film is fiction and just another....yawn.....redundant attack on the 80s and Ronald Reagan. The tragedy is that the CIA component was needless. The man was a drug smuggler. Period. Given the danger involved, the characters he was involved with, and the profession he chose...there was plenty there to make a meaningful film without it descending into political propaganda. Entertainment wise, it isnt a bad film and the elements are all there for an enjoyable experience...as long as you're ignorant about what actually happened.

Gets a little bogged down in parts, but with Cruise's take on for him an atypical role, makes for a compelling watch. Recommended.

I was pleasantly surprised by this Tom Cruise movie. Hadn?t heard any buzz or hype around it and yet having seen it thought it was worth some. An engaging story, masterfully told. It was also quite easy to follow despite numerous twists and turns.
