Critic Reviews of "American Made"
Entertainment WeeklySeptember 26, 2017
Seal is not a likable guy exactly. He's actually kind of a greedy, amoral dirtbag. Which is why Liman and screenwriter Gary Spinelli need someone like Cruise to sell him. And sell him he does.
Village VoiceSeptember 26, 2017
Doug Liman's electric film is clear-eyed about the cynicism and corruption beneath its hero's anxious grin. It voraciously breaks down both the star and the country he has symbolized for so much of his career.
Newark Star-LedgerSeptember 26, 2017
It gives Liman a chance to stage a few tense aerial sequences ... it gives Cruise the opportunity to re-establish his brand of aggressive good humor and carefree - make that careless - adventure. They know what they're doing.
Time OutAugust 23, 2017
Liman mines the story for familiar but fun comedy
indieWireAugust 17, 2017
The draw, however, remains Cruise, figuratively walking out on a wing; whether multiplexers rejoin him there will be seen, but after endless formula runouts, it's encouraging to see him being properly exercised again.
VarietyAugust 17, 2017
A sweat-slicked, exhausting but glibly entertaining escapade on its own terms, "American Made" is more interesting as a showcase for the dateless elasticity of Cruise's star power.
CinemaBlend.comSeptember 27, 2017
At the end of the day, it has one hell of a story to tell, and tells it in a visually arresting way, and sometimes that's enough for a proper cinematic experience.
ScreenCrushSeptember 27, 2017
Suffers from sluggish pacing, but proves Cruise is still a good movie star.
Business InsiderSeptember 27, 2017
In the effort to be fun and slick, "American Made" loses its teeth and is relegated to Tom Cruise doing the two things he's best at: being a charmer and daredevil.
Vanity FairSeptember 27, 2017
American Made sure makes zipping around in planes loaded with ill-gotten jewels seem like a lot of fun.
Movie NationSeptember 27, 2017
Flippant, fun and damning.
CompuserveSeptember 26, 2017
First-class editing helps to make sense of a jumble of plots, including Tom Cruise's performance as a gun running CIA agent, a TWA pilot, and a drug smuggler.
