Top Gun: Maverick
Top Gun: Maverick is a 2022 American action drama film directed by Joseph Kosinski. It is the sequel to Classic Cult Top Gun (1986) film. The film stars Tom Cruise as Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, a test pilot, alongside Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, Monica Barbaro, and Val Kilmer. Set 36 years after its predecessor, the movie follows Maverick's return to the United States Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program (also known as "Top Gun") to train the best pilots for a very critical mission. While he prepares the pilots for the mission he must also confront his past as he trains a group of younger fighter pilots, among them the son of Maverick's best friend Goose.
This movie is more than a perfect one in all aspects, it has an amazing screenplay by Peter Craig and Justin Marks where they kept the soul of the classic hit and build an amazing story on that which itself is a great tribute to Top Gun of 1986. The movie is well directed and full of aerial encounters which are amazingly choreographed with perfect sound effects and cinematography. The camera work, aerial dogfights, and special effects keep you at the edge as if you are sitting behind cockpits.
This movie is all about Tom Cruise who defies the age and gravity by having a great time presenting the maverick in such an amazing way. It really takes quite a courage to build a sequel of such a cult, that too after 36 years and acing it up.
This movie was one of my favorites as a teenager and it kept the swag of Maverick Characters with his wits, rebels, bike scene, aviator glass, and jacket. My full thumbs up for this, it is a must-watch and also to keep in your movie collection.
