Top Gun: Maverick - Critical Success
« on: June 11, 2022, 05:47:17 PM »
And yeah, Top Gun: Maverick is a real sucess. The movie released fifteen or so days ago and racked up 635 million dollars worldwide.
Top Gun: Maverick is the sequel to the 1986's Top Gun movie, starring Tom Cruise as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell.
In this one, Cruise reprises his role as Maverick to teach fresh young pilots in the Elite Fighters School, known as Top Gun by the students.
I saw this movie on wednesday(June 8th) and I must say, the movie is AWESOME. Sound, photography, acting, aircraft scenes, everything. The movie got 4.8/5 on the theater network website in the city I live.

Did any of you see it?

I thought it was an excellent film as well.  The tie ins to the original one was great.

I've seen "Top Gun: Maverick" twice now and it is one of the best movie I've seen in several years. There was NO Political message, NO Social Justice Warrior issues and there was enough Macho Testosterone and Adreniline fueled action to satisfy any action movie fan.

This movie closed off the plot holes in the 1986 original movie, and expanded on the lives of the characters. It was indeed heartwarming to see "Iceman" Kazansky, and I did appreciate how Val Kilmer's real life cancer fight was handled.

The best plot hole was the unnamed "Admiral's Daughter" that "Maverick" and his backseater "Goose" did an unauthorized fly over of. She's un named in "Top Gun," and her identity is revealed in "Maverick"

All in all, I'm definitely recommending this movie.

But as an Air Force Vet, I must say that ALL the training My Brother Service pilots were doing, WE do that kind of stuff EVERY day!!!

Just heard that Top Gun: Maverick is close to reaching 900 million in revenue worldwide. Up to now, domestic revenue is close to 450 million.

Was a joy to watch
Sure, I enjoyed every second of it.
