Top gun, loved and loathed by many alike. The film that launched Tom Cruise's career. Tom Cruise's performance is stellar, playing a role that he would end up playing again and again as the overconfident 'Maverick' who eventually learns his lesson. Top Gun is a high quality, visually stunning film that does all it can to take your breath away.
Parts of the story are overly cheesy and clich d. The proud to be American theme is dire, repetitive and anyone who dislikes over patriotism in films will despise this.
However, Top Gun is a fun movie, one of those oh-so 80s films that defined their era - it's usually found in the same collection as Ferris Bueller, The Goonies, St.Elmo's Fire, Dirty Dancing and that sort of stuff.
