Trivia

Since August 24th, Tom Cruise has been seen filming on location in Medellín, Colombia, and also on other Colombian towns that were real places where Barry Seal had to move when he was a pilot for the Medellin Cartel. See more »

Goofs

When being taken for a tour around Columbia in a brightly coloured helicopter, the door is open and through the window of the door can be seen the start of a website address on the side of the helicopter. All that can be seen is 'www.' with the door covering the rest of the address. The world wide web was not around in 1980. See more »

TomCruise at his best
3 September 2017 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

A great story perfectly representing those years and with a stunning performance by Tom Cruise. I would say one of the best movie ever, in this genre, which is midway between a CIA based film and a biopic one. Barry's narration, delivered direct to camera, takes the form of a series of clips from a fuzzy home video supposedly shot in the mid-1980s, laying out the historical background in a dense fashion (he pretends at one point to confuse two countries) which seems most directly indebted to Adam McKay's The Big Short. The biggest coup is the casting of Cruise, who functions as a pure icon, recycling all his usual mannerisms – the grin, the hand gestures – and even revisiting his past as a pilot in Top Gun. The catch is that his depthless showboating for once seems intended as anything but likable.
