UK Released DVD/Blu-Ray item. It MAY NOT play on regular US DVD/Blu-Ray player. You may need a multi-region US DVD/Blu-Ray player to play this item. One of the definitive films of the 1980s, 'Top Gun' is a high-octane, high-concept mixture of slick images, hard action and non-stop music. Tom Cruise plays Maverick, a young fighter pilot enrolled at Naval college, training with the most gifted flyers of his generation, and competing for the prestigious Top Gun award. Maverick soon establishes himself as one of the best in his class, but his insistence on doing things his own way soon brings him into conflict with his superiors and his main student rival: the Iceman (Val Kilmer). Celebrated for its vividly realised flight sequences, its keen sense of style, and featuring the Oscar-winning song 'Take My Breath Away', 'Top Gun' was one of the most popular films of its day.

I didn't much care if Tom Cruise was able to woo Kelly McGillis or not when I was a youngster. I just wanted to see jets. But as I've gotten older the love story, melodramatic as it may be, is far more interesting to me than it was as a kid. So the movie has actually gotten more interesting to me over time. And of course there are still jets. And missiles! You really can't go wrong.
I watch this at least once a year and it never gets old.
My kids are still too young to watch Top Gun, but I will show it to them one day. Though I wonder if it will be hard to explain to a kid born well after the end of the Cold War exactly why Maverick is out to get those Russians so badly.
The whole movie is just so well made. If you have the DVD you should actually watch the special features. It's one of those rare films where the special features are actually worth watching. There is a 'making of' feature that shows how much effort went into filming this. There's no CGI. This was the 80's. These are real F-14 Tomcats flying around in this movie.
Is this movie realistic from a plot standpoint? Not even a tiny little bit. But who cares?! The movie it fantastic.
It's also worth noting that Top Gun introduced me, as a young man, to the awesomeness of the Ritcheous Brothers.
The only saving grace is it does come with a 2D disc and the blue ray quality on that disc is what you would expect from Blue Ray, but truly upset that I purchased a 3D edition thinking I would get the quality I have had on all the other 3D movies we have bought so far.
No, that isn't a shiver you felt just now. That is a shot of pure awesomeness that can only be injected on by this epic 1986 classic. If you grew up on the adrenaline fueled magic of Maverick and Goose then you should buy this now. Seriously, why are you still reading this? Sure, the blu-ray edition is cleaner and prettier than the dvd but that doesn't matter because Iceman is in here and he wants to show you some awesome naval fighter jet footage.
You're still reading... I don't know what else to tell you. It's everything you remember from watching in your mom's basement with your sixth grade best friend. So go buy the movie. Yes, replace your old dvd or god forbid VHS. Bring this movie back to the front of your viewing library and share the awesomeness with whatever loved one will indulge you but will also never appreciate it on your level. Do it now. Go ballistic, buzz the tower, buy the movie.
I have a 3D TV etc and was excited to get this DVD in 3D. The 3d is average at best. I guess it's probably hard to redo an 1980s film in 3D especially since it was all shot with real footage and not computer animations. But they did a good job with it in my opinion, just the overall end result was less than impressive.
Still an EXCELLENT movie, but I guess I'm reviewing the 3D when I give it 4/5 stars. It just wasn't as mind blowing awesome as I expected. The movie itself is still a 5 star movie.
