Overview

Devil-may-care navy pilot Pete Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is sent to Miramar Naval Air Station for advanced training. Here he vies with Tom Kasansky (Val Kilmer) for the coveted "Top Gun" award. When not so occupied, Mitchell carries on a romance with civilian consultant Charlotte Blackwood (Kelly McGillis). Shaken up by the death of a friend, Mitchell loses the Top Gun honor to Kasansky. Worried that he may have lost his nerve, Mitchell is given a chance to redeem himself during a tense international crisis involving a crippled US vessel and a flock of predatory enemy planes. The story wasn't new in 1986, but Top Gun scored with audiences on the strength of its visuals, especially the vertigo-inducing aerial sequences. The film made more money than any other film in 1986 and even spawned a 1989 takeoff, Hot Shots. An Academy Award went to the Giogio Moroder-Tom Whitlock song "Take My Breath Away."

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
The quintessential 1980s blockbuster, Top Gun (1986) may be a slick exercise in macho flyboy ethics, but the kinetic aerial sequences and Tom Cruise's cocky superstar presence make it a perennial crowd-pleaser. Featuring a pre-E.R. Anthony Edwards as the best pal and a bristling Val Kilmer as the nemesis, the story of how Cruise's unsubtly monikered Maverick learns what it takes to truly be a Navy "top gun," with the assistance of Kelly McGillis' fishnet stocking-clad instructor, hits all of the predictable notes. Former television commercial director Tony Scott gave the proceedings a stylish sheen, however, which reached its apex in the flight scenes involving actual Navy hardware zooming, diving, and spinning through energetic MTV-ready dogfights against hostile Soviets. Another hit for flashy action producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, Top Gun became the top-grossing film of 1986, rocketing Cruise and his grin into the action pantheon and earning several Oscar nominations, including Best Editing. The erotic subtext of Top Gun's male posturing and bonding was memorably deconstructed by Quentin Tarantino in the minor indie film Sleep With Me (1994).

Having heard a lot about this one, finally saw it and it was okay. Acting was okay, locations, etc. The soundtrack was a bit weird in moments but the movie was okay.

I enjoyed the movie and the sound of the movie is excellent. The actors in the movie are great. the picturing is good in the movie also. It can get a little emotional at the end But I rate the over all movie 100% good.

When I saw this movie for the first time I was living in SAN DIEGO,CA Off base from where my dad worked and that was MIRAMAR WHERE THEY MADE THE MOVIE!!! My dad was in the Navy at the time of them making the movie and he swore he saw some of the stars like Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis! If they ever had a category for best military movie ever, Top Gun would win the award.

In my opinion, there is no other military movie that goes this in depth to dogfighting. The stellar cast, along with the high flying action is stellar. Even though it is an 80's film, it has plenty of heart stopping action for today's action enthusiasts.

This movie is very emotional yet its wicked as ever.It's a tragedy,a romance ,and a comedy.Tom cruise falls for one of his instructors... Mavericks plane goes out of control and they have to eject from the plane immediately...At the graduation they are sent on a mission and maverick almost backs away.

Top Gun can be best remembered as a future star producer. Tom Cruise solidified his status as a leading man, Val Kilmer, Meg Ryan, and Kelly McGillis rounded out an ensemble cast that today would be too expensive to put together. Sadly, Anthony Edwards (Revenge of the Nerds I & II) who showed so much promise fell to the B-List of actors. Tom Skerritt, in one of his best roles, turned into the same fate. I should add McGillis (Witness,) because she's a no-show at present and has been for a long time. The movie is by far one of the best aerial cinematography of our Navy planes in action, even to this day. The storyline appears at first to be a ''run & gun,'' high-octane splash, but the middle change in velocity is both saddening and a frightful reality of aviators. The inner selves of the characters begin to deepen and the ending isn't predictable. Top Gun is one of the finest movies that defined the 80's.

I think this is a great 80s great movie. I cried in a particular part in it and if u've seen it u know what i'm talkin about. So, if u haven't seen it, I reccomend it.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen!!!! TOM CRUISE IS SOOOO HOT IN this movie! But if you are under 13 I don't recommend it because it has inappropriate part in it! That is the only issue it should NOT be rated PG! But if you love action and romance in one movie this is what you should get!!!!!!!!!!!
