American Made is a biological crime film about the life of pilot, Barry Seal. Tom Cruise takes the lead and puts in his normal energy and enthusiasm into the role. The film very entertaining and interesting. It takes place during the late-70s to the mid-80s amidst the Nicaraguan contras controversy. This film has great pace and is edited fantastically. When this film wants you to feel intense, it delivers. When it wants you to feel excited and adventurous, it delivers. It is stylish and engaging. The narration is done in a similar way to the all-time great film, Goodfellas. It is far from the pedestal of Goodfellas, but it is a decent and fun film worth a viewing. It won't become your favorite movie, but it won't leave your mind once you turn off the T.V. All around I would give this film a 7/10.
