American Made (DVD + Digital download) Editor Review
Who would ever think you could have too much cash? Barry Seal literally finds himself digging holes in the garden to bury it and coming up against a bag already buried. A very lighthearted take on a disturbing true story of political intrigue on a global scale.
Despite the lightheartedness, there is a more sinister undertone in relation to the way the US government is involved in arms deals; Israel picks up Russian guns, sells them to the US, who secretly send them out to the Iran and 'the Contras' in South America. For fans of aerobatics, some hilarious flying scenes, such as Barry taking off from a dodgy Colombian airfield, while his paymasters place bets on whether he makes it. The action shots are excellent and the story is an interesting one. The filming is made to look suspiciously analogue (maybe to make Cruise look younger) and in a digital age is a bit irritating at first. I did stop noticing after a while though.
Fascinating story and some great laugh out loud moments!.
