How to watch American Made on Netflix

Last Updated:

Despite its title, the film American Made is not available for Netflix subscribers in America as at July 2024. Licensing issues mean that Netflix can only stream this movie to users in other countries such as Belgium, Italy and the Philippines. You can still watch this movie on Netflix even from America, but you would need to use a Virtual Private Network, or VPN, to get around Netflix’s region-based geo-blocks. A VPN tricks Netflix into thinking that you’re a subscriber from another country by routing your internet traffic to a foreign server, allowing you to finally enjoy the Netflix movies previously only available in other countries.

Listed below are the international Netflix libraries that currently include this movie:

We strongly recommend ExpressVPN due to their blazing fast streaming servers, and ability to quickly and easily unblock Netflix movies only available in countries outside of the USA.

The action-packed comedy film American Made stars Tom Cruise in the leading role of Barry Seal, a civilian airline pilot recruited by the CIA to conduct secret reconnaissance flights over Central America in a small twin-engine plane. His involvement with the CIA continued for decades, but a turning point comes when Seal comes into contact with a corrupt Panamanian general, who gets him to smuggle cocaine into the United States in exchange for a handsome payout. Seal’s drug smuggling activities slowly escalate, bringing him immense wealth but also putting him in the sights of the FBI and the DEA, who are determined to bring him to justice. Loosely based on the true story of the real-life Barry Seal, the movie released worldwide in 2017 to critical acclaim.
