Cocky, undisciplined Maverick (Tom Cruise) flies by instinct and breaks all of the rules at the Navy fighter pilot academy with his best friend and co-pilot Goose (Anthony Edwards). Along the way, Maverick romances the civilian astrophysics instructor (Kelly McGillis) who is initially put off by his hotshot antics. When a personal tragedy leads Maverick to reassess his abilities and choices, he proves that he can be a team player and still shine. Directed by Tony Scott, TOP GUN was the top grossing movie of 1986. A HIGH OCTANE THRILL RIDE!! A Great addition to EVERY DVD collection!!
A movie released in the 80's starring Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards Meg Ryan and Tim Robins.
The movie that made Tom Cruise a star. This movie is about a Navy Pilot, Pete Mitchell a.k.a. Maverick who is considered by his peers and superiors as one of the best pilot's in the navy but they also think of him as a reckless one.
The plot of the movie revolves around Maverick's life and how his father's uncertain death continue to bother him. Things will turn for the worst upon the death of Maverick's friend and partner Goose played by Anthony Edwards.
This movie is very exciting and action driven. The dog fights in this movie was very well executed to look like the real thing.
I have worn out my DVD watching this great movie and with the purchase of a new Blue-ray player I hope to do the samething with ths new BD.
Top Gun is a great movie in the eye candy with a message genre. If you like military films, there are plenty of action scenes that include great aerial photography, modern military hardware (when the movie was produced in the 1980's), and gripping combat sequences. But Tom Cruise, as the talented and daring Navy pilot Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, needs to prove that his talent is not just recklessness. A great supporting cast, including Kelly McGillis, Anthony Edwards, and Tom Skerrit, show Mitchell that true courage is more than just fancy flying and shooting bad guys.
A HIP, 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 MAVRICK 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.
Tom Cruise plays a made-for-Cruise part in this film of a top navy aviator, his ambition, his ego, his brash manner and his ultimate meeting with his destiny. It is not a subtle plot, but it succeeds by virtue of its direct, honest one-way approach to each and every issue.
There are good guys and better guys, no bad guys. They compete for attention and success. There is overweaning brashness and hubris that is punished; there is level-headed pertinacity that is rewarded; there is tragedy without blame; there is a one-dimensional love affair that is recalled in the closing scene by an unsubtle song. It is not a subtle movie.
But it is engaging and compelling. The camera work is superb; lessons are learned and decency is rewarded. It is a very American film directed in a very American way. It is definitely worth watching.
