A Tom Cruise Retrospective

American Made (2017)

Cruise’s latest film has been heralded as a return to the energetically charismatic Tom Cruise that thrived so much earlier in his career – and it doesn’t disappoint! Based on true events, the film follows Barry Seal’s story as he soon finds himself in charge of one of the biggest covert CIA operations in the history of the United States. The secret operation that would be exposed as the Iran-Contra Affair scandal spawns the birth of the Medellin cartel and almost brings down the Reagan White House.

In the film, airline pilot Seal has to dig himself out of a number sticky situations with the Columbian cartel using his – you guessed it – charm, but eventually finds himself in way too deep in one of the biggest international scandals in US history. Cruise, as promised, is on sizzling form and you can’t help but root for his less than morally-obliging character, a spell he’s managed to cast over audiences for over 20 years now and one that looks set to continue.



AMERICAN MADE IS AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL ON DECEMBER 18 AND 4K ULTRA HD, BLU-RAY™ AND DVD ON DECEMBER 26, 2017 FROM UNIVERSAL PICTURES HOME ENTERTAINMENT UK
