    This was a very good watch. Nice to see Tom Cruise do something a bit different from his usual stuff.

    If you REALLY like to fantasize about the young Tom Cruise and his stellar ascent of the Hollywood pantheon as Top Gun, you just MIGHT like this flick- at least, that's what T.C. and his agent obviously were thinking when taking on this script. Plot will have you stifling a yawn now and then. Most irritating, but unsurprising, is that the main character- who'se obviously been a crook from early on (see the Wikipedia entry on Barry Seal) had to be buffed up to some type of adventure-seeking misguided action man- in other words: worthy of T.C. Opportunities to really probe and look into a bit of background of Iran/Contra or present-day parallels- all missed. Ach well, enjoy if you must
  • Great, But Not Quite Amazing

    To be fair, this film is an incredibly compelling one, with really gripping moments, and Tom Cruise gives an above average performance as the main character. I can’t really put my finger on what seems to be wrong though. It’s defiantly one to watch!
  • Excellent film, albeit far fetched..

    Brilliant movie. Enjoyed every minute of it. In reality, though, a little over dramatised and exaggerated. As annoying as TC is, he played the role perfectly 👍🏻
  • Worth a watch I'd say.....

    Not a bad film but not a knock-your-socks-off one either. It's well paced with just enough quirkiness to make it light-hearted and entertaining. Personally I haven't seen all of the Netflix (and/or) other productions that cover this sort of storyline about cartels, Escobar, narcos, contras etc. so found it quite eyeopening if indeed the events portrayed are true to life. A solid Tom Cruise performance makes this worth a rental .... Not Enough POW to make me want to buy this one and watch repeatedly though.

    Firstly, I am so glad I purchased this movie, instead of waiting to rent it, as it's the most enjoyable £12 I've ever spent. To think the likes of Cruise, Liman et al worked so hard for so long to entertain us this much is amazing. Filmed in a Netflix style of Narcos, set in the 80's this amazing, crazy, unbelievable story is played out by Tom Cruise in what I think is the best I've ever seen of him. He makes it look effortless, and honestly looks the best I've ever seen him look. What a great night in. Enjoy and Merry Christmas
  • Another brilliant Doug Liman movie

    I’m not sure Doug has ever made a bad movie and this is brilliant. Loosely based on a real life story, Tom Cruise is brilliant. If you enjoyed series like Narcos on Netflix you’ll appreciate this strand of the same world.
