Tom Cruise’s movie “American Made” is absolutely worth watching.

The movie follows the real-life antics of infamous pilot Barry Seal, including his role in smuggling weapons and drugs to South America. Cruise stars as Seal, and knocks it out of the park with his performance.

I’d been meaning to watch this movie for a while, but my schedule never had an opening. That’s one of the consequences of trying to take over the internet. You don’t have a ton of free time.

However, I finally was able to watch it last night. To put it simply, “American Made” is awesome.

There was a perfect blend of action, comedy, hot women, suspense, intrigue and everything else that makes a movie great. I already knew of the Barry Seal story, and how it ended. That still didn’t stop me from enjoying every second of the movie. It was incredibly entertaining, even knowing how it would ultimately end.

I can’t recommend this movie highly enough. Rent it ASAP, and enjoy one of the best performances of Cruise’s career.
