Spoiler Ep 65 – American Made

There’s one thing in particular to remember about action movies like this one: don’t expect any Oscar noms. And know what you’re getting into before you buy your ticket. Ok, that’s two things.

Let’s be honest, the movie is alright. It’s not a great movie, it’s not a bad movie. It’s a good movie. It’s better than most. It’s good like a movie should be. I’ll even grant that it is great.
