** out of ****       "Top Gun" does not disappoint. It's what you'd expect out of a Tony Scott-directed action film, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, and starring Tom Cruise. I don't know about you, but I'd expect mediocrity, and mediocre is what this movie is. I can't say it's a let-down; but I can't say it's much of a recommendation either.    The problem I have with "Top Gun" is its lack of strong characters, inspired dialogue, or interesting story-telling. …

The original "modern-day" dogfighting movie still wears the crown as the best of the best, even if it IS dated. Newer, CG-motivated jet fighter films such as 'Behind Enemy Lines' & 'Stealth' never quite reach the level of authenticity that Top Gun achieves with its true-to-life flight footage. Remember: As callsign Viper famously said, "There are no points for second place." Chester's dead, YEE-HAW!

Top Gun
Directed by Tony Scott, in Top Gun Maverick (Tom Cruise) competes against other fighter pilots to be the top of the class.      Top Gun is filled with a bunch of great flight scenes, and considered a classic Tom Cruise movie, which is why it makes the Top Ten Tom Cruise Movies list.

This was the movie that made me a Tom Cruise fan.... for 2 hours at least.  These were the movies that made the 80s.  Its got it all, action, drama, comedy, romance, you name it.  And I'm not ashame to admit it.  I cried when Goose died.  He will always be the greatest "Wingman" ever!!!

Pros: Nice script which touches on virtually all facets of a story     Cons: Meg Ryan's annoying Southern accent; Dizzying camera angles; HIS NAME WAS PETE!!!     Top Gun is one of Dionne's favorite movies. As you all know, Dionne and I are best friends. She loves Tom Cruise, whereas I thinks he's okay at best. Tonight, after an impromptu pizza party in the Commons, Dionne, Erik, Casino, Corrina, Scott and I decided to watch Top Gun. To tell you the truth, …
