Barry Seal is a former TWA pilot who is flying for just about everybody these days from the airlines and the CIA to the drug cartels. We pick up on his life from around 1978 to 1986 at the height of the war on drugs during the Reagan administration. What a time to be running drugs for the government huh? This is the true story of Barry Seal’s life and what a life he had. Balancing his home life with the cartels and the CIA becomes a bit overwhelming but he seems to handle it, or can he? Risk and reward which one is greater? With everything, he has to balance and keep track of Barry also has the FBI, ATF, US Border Patrol and even local law enforcement trying to catch him. It just gets crazy from here. Will playing both sides catch up to him? How long can he maintain this lifestyle and keep his plane of life from crashing? Crazy on top of crazy is one way to sum it up. Patriot or drug runner is also something Barry will have to decide as we progress through his wild “leap before looking” life. Make sure your tray tables are in their upright position and you have your seat belt fastened because this ride will not slow down while Tom Cruise is the captain. True stories when done right are entertaining and fun to watch. Whether or not you like or appreciate Tom Cruise I believe fans of this type of movie and the way Cruise portrayed Barry Seal’s will be worth the watch. But that is entirely up to you.
