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

A Danish Army friend of mine once told me that they had "Top Gun Watch Parties" in the dormitories when he was a younger troop. They would wear flight suits, simulate flying with Maverick and Goose with their computer flight stick controllers, stand upside down in their chairs during the inverted scene, stand and sing along with Maverick during "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" and toss their dogtags at the screen when Mav tosses them into the ocean. Kind of like Rocky Horror, but with Top Gun.
If you've never seen it, cook up some popcorn, put on your G-suit and strap in for a great thrill ride! If you have already seen it, watch it again!
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 to say, that it does look a little different, but its not such a big change that it makes the movie look even better.
I would give the 3D 3 stars only, but the movie is such a classic that, i have to give it 4.
