Finally a movie that incorporates the history of the covert operations employed by Reagan and the CIA in attempting to overthrow the Sandinista government in Nicaragua, including facilitation of drug and weapons smuggling. We thought the script and acting were great, and totally enjoyed the movie.

Fun and funny movie. Shocking view of the CIA. I loved it. Best role every seen for Tom Cruise.

This drama/crime film is about a TWA pilot who is recruited by the CIA, and ends up in the middle of the Medellin Cartel, almost bringing down the White House. The movie stars Tom Cruise, Sarah Wright, Domhnall Gleeson, and Jesse Plemons amongst more. What this movie did have going for it is how it was very action-packed and had many quick paced and intense scenes. As well, Tom Cruise had a wonderful and spunky performance that really tied everything together. I would rate this movie 4/5 stars, and recommend it to those who like historically based films. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Tom Cruise is excellent in his portrayal of Barry Seal, a man who played every side against the middle without remorse or conscience. In the end.........

Weird, this is a movie about a man who helped kill thousands of people thru drug running and he is idolized. The quote "based on a true lie" is true. The making of the film is well done, the casting looks nothing like the real people but that is U.S. glam for you. Great flight shots however a empty storyline. Highlighting a stupid U.S, government, well that isn't new is it?

Interesting, seems a bit exaggerated and likely most activities are true. Living on the edge, too much money, too much naivety. Victims of themselves, used by US and Intl government to move money, drugs and weapons.

Directed by Doug Liman in 2017, this American docudrama depicts the life of Barry Seal and his involvement in the biggest covert operations in US history.
It is definitely one of the most outrageous and darkest conspiracies in the world history.
Following these notorious operations, the CIA becomes embroiled in the infamous Iran–Contra affair.
Amazing and unbelievable!

Moral of the movie, crime does not pay eventually ...

Coarse Language: Some F-bombs and a few other nasties but not as many as you might expect.
