Mainly a comedy with some drama thrown in

I thought the film was pretty well done. Its pretty much your typical TC film, not as much action and had Cruise running (don't all his movies do that?) It's based on a true story, loosely. To know that there was a guy that walked the line between the cartel and the government is a great story and TC makes it very watchable.

Black comedy

This film stands as an enjoyable adventure romp in the best TC style, but at heart it is a black comedy, although that may come as a surprise to non-Americans constantly bombarded by the notion that the USA is the bastion of virtuous western civilized values, particularly as, unlike "Wag The Dog", this is not fiction, but 'alternative facts'. There are sources that will tell you how this film deviates from the true facts, but it is sufficiently close to what actually happened to send out a valuable warning. And the warning is basically what is likely to happen when an individual with a defective moral compass goes through life saying "Yeah, sure. That sounds like fun". The extreme version is provided by Barry's brother-in-law, who has no moral compass whatsoever, but is driven exclusively by the gratification of his own immediate desires, to a degree that even the flawed Barry finds shocking. It is a timely lesson, given the way the Trump presidency and related worldwide turbulence is challenging everybody's values and calling us to reassess the world we want to live in from here on. It's also a warning about how an "America First" policy will continue to feed injustice and divide the world along competitive lines, just when we are most needing to work together to solve the problems the planet and human society are facing. so you can enjoy this film at the most superficial level, or on a much deeper one, but either way it is good entertainment.

An exciting work of FICTION.

Before I get down to it, let me just say that this was a highly entertaining work of PURE FICTION that is VERY LOOSELY inspired by true events. Much like films that fall along the lines of The Wolf of Wall Street, I, Tonya and A Beautiful Mind, Hollywood has thrived on taking true stories and bending them every which way strictly for entertainment purposes. I am in no way against this (except for the new, festering terd of a Bruce Lee film, that **** I took personal). Sometimes the truth is bland, uninteresting and doesn't make for good cinema. If the true story of The Wolf of Wall Street stuck to the truth from start to finish, it would've been called, The Wolf of Long Island (Yawn!). Other times they bend the truth to push towards an agenda which doesn't suit well with fans unless they fully agree with that agenda or are willing to blindly follow it. But I digress, this movie was entertaining and I would like to give it justice. American Made is an action packed adventure that depicts the events of Adler Berriman "Barry" Seal, who was an American airline pilot who became a major drug smuggler for the Medellín Cartel. I thoroughly enjoyed the action sequences, the story behind who this man was, and the humor behind it all. However, a lot of the events in this movie that were made up or sugar coated to be more dramatic. Barry Seal never worked for the CIA, he worked for the DEA after being arrested to avoid jail time. But again, I guess it generates more controversy and caters to a far left audience to weave an anti-CIA rhetoric into the plot. The war in Nicaragua between the Contras and the Sandinistas was another subject the film touched. However, the film claims that Barry helped the CIA arm the Contras by smuggling guns across the boarding only for him to be turned down by the CIA who allegedly claimed "the Contras had no interest in fighting, they just wanted to sell drugs and make money". Hmmm... I would LOVE to hear what my Nicaraguan friends and family have to say about that. Overall, this was a fun film. Many (if not all) of the events throughout the 80's and in Barry's life were highly fabricated. So when watching this, like many films like this, be aware that this movie was not factual by any means. If you want to know what really happened with this man and his real story, his biography has raving five star reviews; Smuggler's End: The Life and Death of Barry Seal. Tom Cruise's acting and wittiness he put into the role added to the excitement of this film as well. Scored: 3.5/5 stars #chaoticoptics #chaoticreviews #americanmade
