Movie Review – American Made (2017)

American Made, 2017.

Directed by Doug Liman.

Starring Tom Cruise, Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright, E. Roger Mitchell, Jesse Plemons, Lola Kirke, Alejandro Edda, Benito Martinez, Caleb Landry Jones, and Jayma Mays.

Synopsis:

A pilot lands work for the CIA and as a drug runner in the south during the 1980s.

Antiheroes require an actor that radiates charisma, so it’s no shock that Tom Cruise (reunited with Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman) makes for a likable drug runner, gun smuggler, and greedy scumbag whose financial thirst cannot be quenched. It’s not even long into American Made where renowned pilot Barry Seal (the film is a loose adaptation of the man’s criminal wrongdoings) states in one of his monologues (accomplished by VHS recordings detailing everything that went on during the various stages of his illegal activities) “Who knew having too much money would ever become a problem”. It’s

Movie Review – American Made (2017)

American Made, 2017.

Directed by Doug Liman.

Starring Tom Cruise, Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright, E. Roger Mitchell, Jesse Plemons, Lola Kirke, Alejandro Edda, Benito Martinez, Caleb Landry Jones, and Jayma Mays.

Synopsis:

A pilot lands work for the CIA and as a drug runner in the south during the 1980s.

There’s an unshakeable feeling that Tom Cruise is actually trying in American Made, Doug Liman’s derivative if not entertaining Goodfellas-lite comic thriller. Cruise has been the movie star for the past two decades, but his on-screen persona only exists as a parallel to Cruise as the movie star. Few risks are taken, so American Made, albeit steeped in cliché, is a rather welcome detour away from the glamour and stunts of the monolithic blockbusters he finds comfort in.

It’s all too easy to forget his 1-2-3-4 punch of The Last Samurai, Collateral, War of the Worlds,

American Made: first trailer for new Tom Cruise film

Simon Brew Jun 6, 2017

Tom Cruise isn't just appearing in The Mummy this year. There's the very different American Made, too. Here's the trailer...

With The Mummy landing in cinemas this week, Universal has taken the opportunity to launch the trailer for its next Tom Cruise project. Once known as Mena, it’s now called American Made, and sees Cruise reuniting with director Doug Liman, following their work on Edge Of Tomorrow.

It also looks like Cruise’s most interesting acting role in some time.

The film tells the story of a hustler by the name of Barry Seal – the character is based on a real person, even if the adventures around him use creative licence – who finds himself recruited by the CIA.

Here’s the trailer…

(Apparently, the Us version of the trailer doesn’t have drugs in it, fact fans).

American Made Trailer & Poster Sees Tom Cruise In Over His Head

  • LRM Online
If you’re like us, one big Tom Cruise blockbuster a year just isn’t enough. Cruise may be headlining the start of a brand new franchise with The Mummy this coming weekend, but those who are lukewarm on the prospect may find more to like in his other venture coming out later this year, American Made. The film reunites him with Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman, and shows him as a pilot given the opportunity to run a covert operation for the U.S. government.

Universal has now released a brand new trailer for the upcoming crime flick, and it looks to be pretty darn solid. If the names Cruise and Liman aren’t enough to sell you, the trailer itself may be. It looks to be a fun little ride in the vein of War Dogs, Lord of War, and Catch Me if You Can, which is a very good thing.

American Made Trailer: Tom Cruise Goes Off The Grid

Even at 54 years young, Tom Cruise continues to stray far beyond his comfort zone in the search for new and exciting roles, and there is perhaps no better example of that admirable pursuit in motion than the wild first trailer for American Made.

Heralding a reunion between Cruise and his Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman – incidentally, the creative duo is poised to take the fight to the Mimics once more thanks to upcoming sequel Live Die Repeat and Repeat – American Made tells the extraordinary true story of Barry Seal, a whip-smart hustler and pilot who is drafted into the CIA in order to spearhead one of the biggest and most daring covert operations in U.S. history. So far, so Cruise.

But Barry Seal is a far cry from the straight-laced Jack Reacher, not to mention Ethan Hunt of the Mission: Impossible series, and up above you’ll get

Tom Cruise puts away his running shoes and takes to the skies in trailer for American Made

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

Tom Cruise may be hitting the big screens at the end of the week in The Mummy, but today marks the release of the International trailer for the real-life story, American Made.

The trailer gives Cruise a time to shine in the role as Seal with comedic aplomb from the very outset as he crash lands a plane full of cocaine, which also covers his face and bad 80’s haircut, into a suburban neighbourhood but before legging it before he can get caught hands a youngster bags of cocaine to keep quiet – You never saw me. We glimpse Domhnall Gleason as CIA agent Monty Shafer recruiting Seal in a bar before proceeding to get his groove on, on the bonnet of a car as the men’s deal goes from strength. Typical male bravado, womanising and deals galore commence in what promises to be a refreshing role for Cruise,

Harry Shearer: Why My 'Spinal Tap' Lawsuit Affects All Creators

Harry Shearer: Why My 'Spinal Tap' Lawsuit Affects All Creators
A little over three decades ago, This Is Spinal Tap perfectly parodied hard-rock excess with a pint-sized Stonehenge, amps that go "one louder" and the unforgettable phrase "Hello Cleveland." The mockumentary, which Ozzy Osbourne has said felt all too realistic, was written by its stars, comedians Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer, and director-actor Rob Reiner. "The closer we dared to get to the real thing, the closer the real thing dared to get to us," Shearer once told Rolling Stone. "It's like reality is calling our bluff at every step along the way.
