AMER­I­CAN MADE (MA15+) Paid by all sides, played into a cor­ner, US, 114 min

A true story prov­ing you can only be in the right place at the right time so many times be­fore it all goes hor­ri­bly wrong. Tom Cruise (de­liv­er­ing his best work in ages) plays Barry Seal, a small­time pi­lot who be­comes the go-to fly­boy across Cen­tral Amer­ica for the CIA, the Medellin drug car­tel, and var­i­ous other du­bi­ous op­er­a­tions. The movie is much more ef­fec­tive at mak­ing light of Seal’s dan­ger­ously strange predica­ment than mak­ing sense of it. Still good fun though.
