American Made (2017) – Movie Review

Movie Review –

American Made (2017) was to be said simply, it’s a great film and probably one of the best acting performances by Tom Cruise (not your typical Tom Cruise acting). This movie sheds light on various topics in which everyone in the USA should have already known though if not watch the film. American Made is an amazing “based on a true story” film and it was put together very well.

The story in American Made and the way the build from the beginning to the end of the movie was well put together, the entire cast covered their roles well beyond average; hands down this is a great movie. The cinematics and overall film style were on point and the time placement fit the styling well.

When this film first hit the theaters it wasn’t a film of interest, to us we just saw the name Tom Cruise and figured “okay another Tom Cruise film”, Tom Cruise is a good actor but by saying this we mean if ya saw Tom in one film then you can typically expect the same feel in the characters; this film isn’t like that. Mr. Cruise actually took this film to a new level versus the average film that he performs in, we feel this is probably his best acting in a long time and he did an amazing job bringing his character to life; great stuff.

Our Rating based on 1-5 Stars: 4.5
