Reviews for Top Gun

Author: r96sk

You'll struggle to find a more cheesy film, even so 'Top Gun' is a super film. I need to check out more of Tony Scott's work because he has yet to let me down from the flicks of his that I've seen; on that note I'd put this below 'Crimson Tide' and Unstoppable', but it is still one of his best I'm sure. The action is great, as is the pacing and music; even with "Take My Breath Away" being slightly overused at one point. Tom Cruise is excellent in the lead role, no doubt the perfect choice to play Maverick. Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, Tom Skerritt, Michael Ironside... ace cast! Tim Robbins, Andy Dufresne himself, is even involved too. They all commit to their roles and give noteworthy performances. 'Top Gun: Maverick' is literally right around the corner. I'm expecting positive things from that sequel.

MORE REVIEWS @ https://www.msbreviews.com/ Rewatched Top Gun before seeing the sequel. Its treatment of female characters clearly didn't age well, but I still had tons of fun. The aerial sequences remain exciting and the male camaraderie originates many memorable dialogues. Awesome score and iconic sunglasses. Rating: B
