American Made

When we think about Tom Cruise we tend to forget that he is not only a Hollywood star but also a talented actor. He can be blamed for that as he didn't take many risks in the past few years when choosing his films. 'American Made' can turn out to be an exeption.
It is rather uncommon that the latest film of an A-list Hollywood star is released one month earlier in Hungary than in America, but for some secret reason that's what happened with 'American Made'. Tom Cruise has already worked together successfully with director Doug Liman in 'Edge of Tomorrow', this time they do justice to an acclaimed script from the Black List which is based on a true story.
Since the 'Wolf of Wall Street' the stories about libertines bathing in money and champagne and doing some illegal business have gained much popularity. Barry Seal existed in reality and in the '70s and the '80s he worked as a pilot helping Colombian cartels to export cocaine illegally to the United States. But he has been caught, and to avoid prison he made a deal with the authorities: he became their spy and he had to provide proofs for the law enforcement agencies using his recordings. The movie presents this double life with a lot of black humour and it is good to see that Tom Cruise takes himself seriously as an actor for a change.
