Runtime: 110 mins Release Date: 15 May 1986
This film takes a beating and keeps on coming. The critical reviews were not good, and a lot of cynical movie-goers out there will agree with them. I am not one of those people. I have the capability of simply going to see a movie, get some popcorn, and simply enjoy the movie for what it is ... pure, escapist entertainment. Some people, and most critics, forget that movies were created as pure entertainment ... they never pretended to become the class-room that some people want them to be. They have always been just entertainment. And if one can accept a movie for being just visceral fun, <more>
then this is one of the best. I get a thrill from this movie as soon as that beat starts as the stars align themselves around a mountain and form Paramount's logo. And thank you to all those involved, particularly in no particular order to:1- screenwriters Jim Cash and Jack Epps, Jr.// 2- first-time director Tony Scott// 3- stars Tom Cruise, Anthony Edwards, and Val Kilmer plus the future Tim Robbins, Tom Skerritt, and Meg Ryan // 4-but especially to the "visionary alliance" of uber-producers Jerry Bruckheimer and the late Don Simpson. Together, this team - sharpened to a point by Bruckheimer and Simpson- has managed to create one of the most visceral, adrenaline-charged motion pictures of all time just think ... this film is 13 years old and still looks this good and rents this well and sells this well and garners great Nielsens . It is with deep-seated appreciation that I say "Thank You" to ALL of those involved, especially Mr. Simpson and Mr. Bruckheimer -- Thank You!!!.PS - for behind the scenes action, read the book HIGH CONCEPT.
If you feel the need, the need for speed, Top Gun is what you need! (by contact-18-751612)
A Legend in it's own time.Timeless classic.Really does get better with age.Yep, all of the above are true and many more platitudes that are bandied about or discussed when this film is mentioned. I struggle to grasp why this has a sub 7 rating on here, especially considering some of the dire films that have been rated 9 or above on IMDb, this film deserves a much higher rating.It's a great night in with "pizza and popcorn" movie, more fun if everyone has seen it before so you can play the Top Gun quote game. I'd love to see this on the big screen with the full sound <more>
system to hear the big adrenaline rush that comes with hearing the jets screaming around and the music pumping. Even though I happily watch it at home of a 40 inch TV with a 5.1 PC audio system which isn't exactly lacking in power or effect...It's a fun if somewhat cheesy 80's film that is of course a formula film that was repeated several times Especially with Tom Cruise starring in them! with a soundtrack that is still as good today as it was in the late 80's when this film came out. The plot may be paper thin but the action, the music and the quotability and great fun of the film is what makes it so much fun to watch and gives it massive replay value.It's fast paced action sequences and aerial cinematography are top notch, simply breathtaking and stunning for the most. The drama of the shooting is the backbone of this film, the adrenaline it can induce is spectacular and some of the shots are simply haunting.The humour is laugh out loud funny and it featured some bloody good looking men and great looking women so the eye candy is never far away. The film has very few lulls and the action is never far away. It has emotion and feeling but always gets back into the Danger Zone pretty quick with characters that are likable and fun to watch. The casting was very well done and you can sense that the cast and crew must have had a riot while making this film With The exception of Iceman/Val Kilmer, who actually kept himself apart from the crew for the most to allow for his character to be felt as a true outsider. As may be apparent I'm a Top Gun fan, have been since I first watched this film, I was gripped from the opening chimes of the epic Top Gun theme followed by that big haired 80's guitar riff and the initial sounds of engines winding up as the steam drifts across the deck of the aircraft carrier. I'm a firm believer that if this film doesn't get your stuff going at some point, your stuff is broken. It's not a film to be taken seriously, it's meant to be enjoyed with friends and laughed along with. The film may have a few plot holes, there are about a million goofs, it spawned more than a handful of web sites to point out all the goofs and flaws in the film, dialogue and all other things Top Gun related but it's got a fan base the size of a massive army and for a reason, it's just a good movie because of all that.The soundtrack and aerial footage really are the stars of this film, even though the cast was pretty huge, the Director Tony Scott really went all in and made a huge effort with Top Gun Even at his own personal expense considering he ended up hiring a US Aircraft carrier to get a shot just how he wanted! It's just one of those films if you like it, whenever it is on, you can sit down and watch it no matter where you walked in, or turned over and found it was on. It's like a really comfortable pair of slippers that always feel good to slip on when you get the chance. I often wish I could turn back the clock to being a teenager again to watch it for the first time all over again and get the chills down my spine as each action sequence gears up; the rush as the roar of the F-14 engines scream and howl. I envy the people who have not seen this film as they have experience the roller-coaster ride that this film can offer.It's funny as I was inspired to come write this review after meeting someone the other week who had not seen Top Gun, which for me has been a rare experience. In fact I don't know many people who do not own either a copy if the VHS or a DVD of Top Gun, and most of my friends have the OST in their music collection or the larger part of it as Singles/MP3's.If you have not seen it, get on ebay or Amazon or wherever, spend a few quid and buy a copy, get some friends around for the night, snag some beer, popcorn, pizza or tofu if that floats your boat and have a great night in. If you don't take it too seriously you should have a good night.If you have seen it and enjoyed it, get on here and give it some love and vote it up, if only to get it ranked above a lot of the rubbish ranked highly.It's also worth watching the DVD extras/Making of Top Gun if you liked the film as it's pretty interesting stuff and very funny in parts, as some of the trivia about the film is fascinating.
"I feel the need, the need for speed!" Top Gun is without any doubt one of the iconic movies of the 80's and marked Tom Cruise's international stardom after Risky Business another successful picture. The late Tony Scott directed a brilliant film based on fighter pilots in the Navy who aspire to become the best of the best in this exciting action drama starring Tom as the charismatic Pete "Maverick" Mitchell and his love affair with his instructor Charlie Blackwood played by Kelly McGillis and let's not forget Tom Skerritt, Anthony Edwards and Meg Ryan who <more>
delivered unforgettable performances. The dogfighting scenes involving F-14A Tomcats are perfect and believable without today's visual effects, in addition to the movie's soundtrack with its great songs. Top Gun is a masterpiece movie for everybody.
I always liked a bit of cheddar (by punkmacinally)
Absolute cheese on a stick, but Top Gun proves that that's not always a bad thing. This movie's got everything - an arrogant prodigy who'd be out on his arse if he wasn't so good, a sensible, uglier best friend, a love interest although she's a bit of a mess , an arch nemesis and his dumb sidekick, a few cool high fives and catchphrases, an emotional death scene, a euphoric victory scene and of course, some unforgettable action scenes. What more could any red-blooded child of the eighties ask for!? And anyone born around 1980 will remember how everyone was doing that <more>
double high five and saying 'talk to me, goose' to the kid next to them in class. Certainly one of my all time favourites.
There is a school of thought that says all movies should be compared on an absolute scale. It would say that movies must have a high level of credibility or familiarity in order to be "good" movies. People who fall into this category simply should not watch Top Gun. They won't enjoy it. Other people take the opposite, but no more valid approach of looking a each movie individually, disregarding all else but the movie. For these people, no outside reality or credibility is important, because for them, a movie exists to entertain in whatever way it chooses to. These people would <more>
enjoy Top Gun very much. It is extremely doubtful that the producers ever even considered making Top Gun as a portrait of a fighter pilot's life, and this is why it is entertaining. It is a rare type of movie, one that no one dares to make today, one that not only transcends reality, but wears it as a mask into the world of fantasy. Everything from the wild dogfights to the fake love to the over the top glamorized or should I say canonized characters lets you know that this is a good old American hero drama. That is why it is a horrible and fraudulent portrait of reality, and that is why I love it.
"I Feel The Need, The Need For Speed" (by bkoganbing)
Top Gun it can be argued is the perfect Reagan Era film and is is definitely the film that cemented Tom Cruise's stardom. It's probably now the film that most people will identify him with.Cruise plays Pete Mitchell aka Maverick who gets recommended for the Navy's elite Top Gun fighter pilot school. The best of the best train here at what they euphemistically call Fightertown, USA. The problem Tom has is he's the best and he knows it. That doesn't near and endear him to his fellow pilots.You can add Top Gun to a list of films that goes all the way back to Task Force where <more>
the story of the development of the aircraft carrier was told, to The Bridges at Toko-Ri which was a film that told about the first jet air war in Korea. What Gary Cooper flew in Task Force and what William Holden piloted in The Bridges at Toko-Ri are as ancient to Cruise's generation as what Eddie Rickenbacker flew in the first World War was to Holden and Cooper.One thing that has not left is that war in the air still is the glamor service because it allows a record of individual achievement. And with flying combat at the speeds they do, one has to make less than split second decisions. The men are better now than they were in the previous wars simply because they have to be.Cruise is ably assisted by such folks as Tim Rossovich, Barry Tubb, Clarence Gilyard, Whip Hubley, and Adrian Pasdar as fellow pilots at the Top Gun school. Val Kilmer turns in a nice performance as Cruise's number one rival to be number one in the class.Best in the film besides Tom is Anthony Edwards as his co-pilot and best friend. His death scene with Cruise is particularly poignant as is Edwards's wife Meg Ryan's scene with Tom as he breaks the news.Romance for Cruise is provided by Kelly McGillis who certainly had her choice of hunks to fall for, but this film doe seem to make a point that women like confidence in their men even if it can be overbearing at times to those around. McGillis is a civilian instructor so the romance does not bring Tom or her under military fraternization infractions.Top Gun is a film every bit as good as the ones I mentioned before. Tom Cruise was never more appealing on the screen. And this review is dedicated to the fighter pilots of the United States Navy, some of the best and brightest of the younger generation who are defending freedom for old codgers like me.
Interesting to see this long after release as a kind of artifact (by rzajac)
Very interesting. A sort of romance-tinged shill for the military-industrial complex! Quite "period" and Reaganesque.Pardon if you think I'm a spoilsport by not falling over backward to let the love story just sort of wash over me, but I can't help but think this movie was designed "to specifications" to rewire our emotion response centers, teaching us to confuse romantic boy-girl love with machine love. Top Gun is a sort of guy flick disguised as a chick flick: It has the sexy 30-million dollar weapon systems--really the ultimate tech orgasm--with a sexy girl <more>
Pentagon weapon systems analyst injected into the story. The sparks fly and both the gals and guys in the audience get all hot and bothered, while thinking that the other is getting hot and bothered for the same reason they are. Little do they know!Some good writing, some good deliveries. The cinematography and editing is astonishing!I highly recommend this movie in conjunction with reflections about the period in which it was released. Star Wars SDI, not the movie was still being debated, The USSR was still a few years from dissolution, and U.S. power desperately needed it's "citizens" to be emotionally attached to the idea that global power issues would continue to require increasingly rarified hardware solutions, rather than political, social, or philosophical ones. If you think about these things while viewing, it will highlight the role of the supposedly "liberal" media in forwarding strangely antiprogressive agendas as they unabashedly stoop to melding these messages with deep feelings of sexual response, bringing the demands of power disturbingly criminally? close to home indeed.It reminds me of something an acting teacher told our class: If you want to get out of jury duty, tell them you're an actor. If these very talented people can willingly take money to expertly deliver these kinds of messages to us, they can tell us anything--as long as the price is right.Top Gun is the quintessential period piece from the late-20th century United States. Don't miss it, and I'm not really being facetious. If you've seen it before, check it out again with new eyes.
OK, I suppose there is a lot to criticize in this film, but yet it still was very entertaining. It was fun to see Meg Ryan looking like she did on that soap opera, and Anthony Edwards with hair. This film made Edwards a star, and I hear that he can't stand the film. He is one of those major anti-military leftists and said that "Top Gun" is just the sort of jingoistic stuff that he hates. I wonder if he still feels that way. He did a good acting job in it though, as did the entire cast. Grade: B+
The piece of crap that happened to be one of my favorite movies......ever! (by xaleber)
To start, I watched thousands of movies, literally The Godfather, Goodfellas, etc.. . And from my perspective, Top Gun is an average popcorn flick. The plot is as cheesy as any movie. After you watch the movie for a while, the story will fade but something else will stick with you. That thing is what forced me to give this movie a 9/10. What is that thing? Well, the feel of the movie, the mode. The 80s fresh air. And the beautiful soundtrack. These things overcome all the flaws in this all-flawed movie. This is the weirdest review I have ever wrote, but it's true. You will like and <more>
detest this movie at the same time. The question is: what feeling will you choose? To conclude, this is a really terrible movie but one of my favorites. Give it a chance on a big screen and you won't be disappointed or will you?
