    Leslie FelperinThe Hollywood Reporter

    This is yet another hyper-competent, boyishly devil-may-care character that offers Cruise, famous for his derring-do on set, a chance to do his own stunts and fly a plane; it’s not a role all that far out of the ageing megastar’s wheelhouse. show more

    It isn’t the charged biopic that a story as fascinating as Seal’s deserves, but it has enough rambunctious delights to get by. show more

    It’s a breezy trip for the star, making ample use of his usual charisma, urgency, grin and gift of the gab, though the late ’70s/early ’80s-set film doesn’t completely hit the mark. show more
