I liked Quentin Tarantino's take on this film. Regardless, this is a classic which should be seen by all in order to understand the mindset of society in that era. It also has one of the best theme songs ever recorded.

Unbelievably lame Hollywood actioner that mixes decent aerial sequences with a dim-witted testosterone soaked soap opera when it's on the ground. Cliched and idiotic.

Our local movie theater played this last night as a late night special at 11:30pm. I have seen the movie plenty of time but I have always suspected that it was one of those movies that was a little more fun on a big screen then it was on my TV at home. Boy was I right, the flight sequences translated to big screen great and the classic sound track sounded great in the theater sound system. Then it still had the fun story and great dialog that you know and love from this classic movie. If you ever get a chance to see this movie on the big screen at any time of day it is worth it.

LT Pete "Maverick" Mitchell and his Radar Intercept Officer (RIO) LTJG Nick "Goose" Bradshaw fly the F-14A Tomcat aboard USS Enterprise (CVN-65). Its story revolves around Maverick mainly and gets close to Charlotte "Charlie" Blackwood (Kelly McGillis). Had one of the best dog fights on film with a stylish aura such as the shades and soundtrack which catapulted Cruise into stardom. The dialogue may have been due to the times but Top Gun entertains because of themes of friendship, love and bravery.

Top Gun is one of the ultimate 80's movie - a combination of spectacular photography, great action scenes, some slick one-liners, a soundtrack that is better than the movie, and some scene-chewing acting by Cruise and Kilmer. Despite its constant cheesiness, it's difficult to dislike this movie.

What made Tom Cruise a Star

One could make the claim that "Top Gun," released during the summer of 1986, is one of the most influential action/guy movies ever made. Its testosterone-driven story of a young hotshot navy pilot named Maverick (Tom Cruise), who is sent with his co-pilot Goose (Anthony Edwards) to "Top Gun," a school for the top 1% pilots in the world, took a backseat to relentless, daring action, and a cheesy romance subplot between Maverick and his civilian instructor (Kelly McGillis) that only seemed to fuel the story."Top Gun" was directed skillfully by Tony Scott (younger brother of Ridley), who threw in a number of elements that would eventually become cliché and worn out by the countless imitators over the years and up until today, in 2004. I was a teenager when "Top Gun" was released in 1986, and...
