(Huge Spoiler Alert below)
In a vast sea of drug running movies involving the Columbian Cartels, this movie crashes and sinks to one of the bottom feeders.
Tom is uninspired and phones it in as doomed amoral CIA dupe pilot Barry Seal.
His entire operation comes off as a huge joke, as it turns out, one of the biggest problems with running drugs for the CIA and the Cartels is that you have issues hiding the money, as the numbers become non-sensical.
The movie properly portrays the CIA as Users and Abusers of hard working Americans, but does not properly go into their heavy involvement in the drug trade and hooking America on cocaine to fund their black programs.
Fine for a rental, and largely forgetable, which is I'm sure how the CIA likes it.
Very entertaining, while exposure to this serious issue. Tom Cruise is marvelous as Barry Seals..
great movie , true story
Love Tom Cruise ??
i enjoyed it
Very entertaining and funny as well, if you are a Tom Cruise fan than this is a must if you are not then appreciate how well the movie is put together with a great story ark and masterful story telling
Would be even better if B & H Clinton and the many murders surrounding their involvement in the drug/arms trade were included.
Looks like the Multiple Movie Reviewer Troll hates Tom Cruise. Remember troll, one review will do!
I actually like him as an actor, and enjoy most of his movies. This one was mediocre and almost TV movie of the week feeling.
The only movie where someone gets blown off in his car and it actually looks like the real thing. No Hollywood style fireball.
I feel Cruise does an amazing job at impersonating a character who actually existed and show both his good and bad sides, his strengths and weaknesses. A talented pilot who doesn't realize until it's too late he's just a pawn in a very dangerous game.
Can you believe this stuff actually happened and US government civil servants firmly believed something good was going to come out of this mess ?
Running Time: 115 min.
