About this movie

A heart-pounding combination of action, music and incredible aerial photography helped make Top Gun the blockbuster hit. of 1986. Top Gun takes a look at the danger and excitement that awaits every pilot at the Navy's prestigious fighter weapons school. Tom Cruise is superb as Lt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, a daring young flyer who's out to become the best. And Kelly McGillis sizzles as the civilian instructor who teaches Maverick a few things you can't learn in a classroom.

Great movie, obviously. I don't think it needs a review, everyone has seen it, 5 star film. BUT, the original film was shot on super 35 and there is A LOT of grain in the film. The YouTube/Google play compression make this look really bad. It is especially apparent in the shots on the carrier in the beginning. I got the 4k version. It's good enough, but if I had to do it again, I would probably buy the Blu-ray. I assume it handles the grain better. Ok to rent it here, don't buy it though.

It was an amazing movie for it's time with it's "you are there" scenes in the cockpit and for that it's worth watching. And people never tire of seeing their heroes killing the bad guys especially if they personally never have to risk anything. But, you should stop there if you need these feelings to get through the day. In the end the movie is subpar. Juvenile dialog, and hokey situations with the air combat eventually will start to bother you the more you see it. Good movie though.
