Tom Cruise has exactly 2 movie personas. The first is action hero.
Movies like Top Gun or Mission Impossible come to mind. The second persona
is the comedic, broken jerk like we've seen in Jerry Maguire and
Vanilla Sky. American Made is comedic broken Cruise on steroids.
Cruise plays Barry Seal, a TWA pilot recruited by the CIA to gather aerial reconnaissance.
It's the 1980s, it's Reagan, it's Iran-Contra, it's communist infiltation of Central America, and the
war on drugs. After a year or two of mission creep,
Mr. Seal finds himself in the unlikely company of Pablo Escobar and Manuel Noriega, running
guns and cocaine - and all with the CIA's tacit approval. Things start to get weird after that.
Suffice to say, Barry Seal takes a decision to use all the runway, and thus, we
get this bizarre, true story. For a young, risk-taking pilot, opportunities abound - and
all rules and borders seem to vanish entirely. Some say Barry Seal is a force-of-nature
- living just for the adventures. Meanwhile, the rest of us secretly pray for
happy landings we can all walk away from!
