American Made (15)

Action, Biography, Comedy

A pilot lands work for the CIA and as a drug runner in the south during the 1980s.

The critical consensus

Cruise is on top form in a based-on-fact thriller that overcomes its familiar trappings with audacious details and flat-out pacing.

****(*)Matt Maytum, Total Film, 22/08/2017

Cruise is as compelling as ever with charm to spare, and this is a ceaselessly entertaining, sometimes tense romp. Although it doesn’t dig much below the surface.

****(*)Alex Godfrey, Empire Online, 22/08/2017

A forgettable flight of fantasy.

James Luxford, Little White Lies, 22/08/2017

There's an incredible story to be told about the life of pilot Barry Seal, but it's buried under Cruise's usual perfect heroics.

A grinning Cruise is back in Top Gun territory in Doug Liman’s sort-of-true story about a bored pilot who starts working for a Columbian cartel and the CIA.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 23/08/2017

Tom Cruise is a hoot in this true-life inspired caper from director Doug Liman.

****(*)Angie Errigo, The List, 23/08/2017

Cruise still has that smirking, mischievous quality he first brought to screen in Risky Business all those years ago. We soon realise that Barry isn’t such a departure for him after all. It’s a role that nobody else could have played better.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 23/08/2017

An entertaining if glib film, especially if you are a Cruise fan.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 25/08/2017

Tom Cruise’s aviator sunglasses can’t disguise the flaws in this playful but shallow take on 80s pilot Barry Seal’s dealings with drug cartels and the CIA.
