This. So much this.
Just goes to show what a couple genre tropes and a clever script can get you.
American Made strikes a tone (though not as visceral) similar to The Wolf of Wall Street in it's ability to make us laugh our way through situations that should definitely not be funny. Incredibly effective.
Ultimately, the 'Goodfellas' of the Iran-Contra Affair origins. And that's a good thing.
Yeah, it's not a great movie if you stop and think about it, but considering some of the negative critical consensus, I didn't expect to be as thoroughly entertained as I was for the entire duration of this film. Jupiter Ascending isn't an example of some of the conceptually deep sci-fi we have loved over the past few years, but it is a lot of the low-explanation sci-fi fun that genre fans can enjoy.
