TWA pilot Barry Seal (Tom Cruise) likes to do a little smuggling on the side, which catches the attention of the CIA. An agent (Domnhall Gleeson) approaches him to do a little flying in order to discreetly transport items to Central and South America.

Barry, a good-natured Southern boy, agrees and although the pay is more than he made as a commercial pilot, it's still not enough to take care of his growing family. That's why when he runs into several drug kingpins, including Pablo Escobar, he agrees to help them get their cocaine to the States. 

Barry becomes more and more involved in the smuggling business and before long, he has more money than he can count. He even has to hire other pilots to meet the demand for his services. But when the government gets wind of what Barry's been doing in addition to working for them, will they support him or throw him to the wolves?

  • 5 stars "I would probably have rated this movie at four stars however I’m giving it 5 to compensate for all the cynics out there that there is NO pleasing. You know the ones, “lousy movie, bad acting, another stinker from Tom”. This movie was fun and entertaining, I don’t think it’s supposed to “move you”. I honestly believe that for some of these movie goers there’s just no pleasing them. Here’s a little advice for them,...stay home and watch Netflix. Then put your rating experience to work by rating Netflix content, it needs it more then the movies in the theatres."
