I’m still trying to get a read on Doug Liman’s American Made, but I’m intrigued. The trailers make the film look like a larger than life crime tale with Tom Cruise being kind of goofy, but I suspect there’s more here than meets the eye. At the very least, the is the first time in a while that Cruise has taken on a real-life figure, and hopefully that lets him to really sink his teeth into a performance that his action hero roles don’t really allow for.
