Top Gun takes a look at the danger and excitement that awaits every pilot at the Navy's prestigious fighter weapons school. Tom Cruise is superb as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, a daring young flyer who's out to become the best of the best. And Kelly McGillis sizzles as the civilian instructor who teaches Maverick a few things you can't learn in a classroom.
Jingoism, beefcake, military hardware, and a Giorgio Moroder rock score reign supreme over taste and logic in this Tony Scott film about a maverick trainee pilot (Tom Cruise) who can't follow the rules at a Navy aviation training facility. The dogfight sequences between American and Soviet jets at the end are absolutely mechanical, though audiences loved it at the time. The love story between Cruise's character and that of Kelly McGillis is like flipping through pages of advertising in a glossy magazine. This designer action movie from 1986 would be all the more appalling were it not for the canny casting of good actors in dumb parts. Standouts include Anthony Edwards--who makes a nice impression as Cruise's average-Joe pal--and the relatively unknown Meg Ryan in a small but memorable appearance. --Tom Keogh

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.
Now for the technical aspect of the movie, First of just running it through a Blu-ray player and running it through a true home theater do make some differences as well as running it trough different brands of Blu-Ray players
Starting with sound if you just pop it into a Blu-ray player and us the TV speaks the sound is all right. Ran it through Yamaha home theater and the sound improved. I’m sure it is true for other brands as well. The standard edition DVD and even a VHS copy lets loose with crushing bass that can be felt as much as heard through an older 5.1 w/subwoofer system. If you jack the sound all the way up you can feel the general sounds of an F-14 carrier take off and flight. The sound technicians could have done a better job for this release.
The problems start coming up when you go to Blu-ray 3D, some scenes are grainy especially the opening scene on the carrier flight deck as well as low light sequences, this is regardless of Flat screens TV used. The most graininess was on my Seki TV, which is my cheapest flat screen in the house.
Final thoughts if you have the DVD the 3D Blu-ray is not worth getting!
And yes, if you are wondering, he has a top of the line 3D TV and 3D Blu-ray player which work AWESOME with MADE FOR 3D movies.
So the movie itself should have gotten FIVE STARS.....the 3D effects should have gotten THREE STARS....hence the rating of FOUR STARS.
