Storyline

Based on a true story, this made-for-cable film tells about Barry Seal, a pilot who was a drug smuggler for the infamous Medellin cartel out of Colombia. He was caught by the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and decided to turn over and help the DEA break the cartel. However, he got caught in the middle of the Reagan/Bush administration efforts to topple the Nicaraguan government in the '80s, in which Nicaraguan rebels called "contras" were allowed to smuggle cocaine into the US in exchange for their fighting against the leftist Nicaraguan government. Eventually Seal was murdered by his former Medellin employers, and some critics say it was with the tacit, if not implicit, connivance of the US administration. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Hopper is never better
13 April 2002 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Dennis Hopper talked about Barry Seal this way "Barry Seal was like a pirate, he went for the gold. I stop short of calling him a hero however. Everyone has to eat their own snakes and his were poison". Hopper brings his trademark intensity to the role of Seal. He gives an on-edge performance akin to his high wire thru hell acts in Easy Rider, Blue Velvet and River's Edge. This man is an amazing actor who is never boring and always delivers. You get tired just watching him. Adrienne Barbeau also gives a great performance as Seal's understanding wife.
