AMER­I­CAN MADE

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS - DC

Di­rected by Doug Li­man. Star­ring Tom Cruise, Domh­nall Gleeson, Sarah Wright Olsen Amus­ing, break-neck true-life thriller con­cern­ing Barry Seal (oddly age­less Cruise), a TWA pi­lot who was re­cruited by the CIA for sur­veil­lance and ended up run­ning drugs and sup­ply­ing the con­tras. The film flings it­self off a ledge in the open­ing mo­ments and then flails in panic for the suc­ceed­ing two hours. But it’s brash, funky, ex­cit­ing and, cru­cially, al­lows Cruise to have some fun with who he used to be. 15A cert, gen re­lease, 115 min
