As usual, Tom Cruise shined in a role that involved stunts with aircraft while dealing with government agencies, Contras, drugs, weapons and the Cartels. I can’t speak about the accuracy of the plot but it is fascinating to see what the American govt allowed/condoned/excused, especially under different regimes. Perhaps because it is “a story based on a true lie”, there was something new in the way Cruise portrayed Barry Seal, that was different from his other action roles. Regardless, it is a fast-paced action movie with a plot that keeps up.

I'm not a fan of most Tom Cruise movies. Think the last one I liked was A Few Good Men. That being said, this one was really good! Guns. Drugs. The CIA. Drug Cartels. Lots and lots of money. What could go wrong?

Finally a movie that incorporates the history of the covert operations employed by Reagan and the CIA in attempting to overthrow the Sandinista government in Nicaragua, including facilitation of drug and weapons smuggling. We thought the script and acting were great, and totally enjoyed the movie.

This drama/crime film is about a TWA pilot who is recruited by the CIA, and ends up in the middle of the Medellin Cartel, almost bringing down the White House. The movie stars Tom Cruise, Sarah Wright, Domhnall Gleeson, and Jesse Plemons amongst more. What this movie did have going for it is how it was very action-packed and had many quick paced and intense scenes. As well, Tom Cruise had a wonderful and spunky performance that really tied everything together. I would rate this movie 4/5 stars, and recommend it to those who like historically based films. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Tom Cruise is excellent in his portrayal of Barry Seal, a man who played every side against the middle without remorse or conscience. In the end.........

Sexual Content: A few brief sex scenes. A few scenes where Tom flashes his butt.

Violence: A fair bit of gunplay here and there but this is not a shoot-em-up.

Coarse Language: Some F-bombs and a few other nasties but not as many as you might expect.
