I had really high expectations but it fell somewhat short. Im a big fan of planes so dogfighting scenes really impressed me. Story line seemed to be little shallow, choppy and superficial. The acting was ok with lines that were simple - missing deeper meaning Overall i think the 1986's Top Gun had more emotional load with better developed friendship and romance stories. It seemed more natural and easier to connect to. Still a good movie but now i am gonna watch and enjoy the 1986 again..
Phenomenal. Saw Top Gun summer 1986. In this sequel, 36 years later, the actors show they’ve aged too. They also added a female pilot and 5th Gen warfare which gave it real-time authenticity. I loved the volleyball scene in the first movie and this time they added the same feel with beach football teaching teamwork. Of course, CGI had to be added -what they wrote in is not humanly possible to film, but is so good gives an adrenaline rush! Moving and well done. Tom Cruise, living legend. Watch!
A breathless, amazing sequel. One of the best films of the year. Following up from the first one, this one is a beautiful action fest with amazing aerial flying, a great story, scary scenes, and fun times. Jennifer Connelly and Cruise really deliever here and so does Val Kilmer. I saw it in IMAX which was a pretty good experience. Also the main theme song by Lady Gaga is absolutely incredible and is a great follow up theme song to "Take My Breath Away". I give Top Gun: Maverick a 5 out of 5.
