Finally got a chance to see this movie and it was everything I had hoped it was.
Man, oh man, does Tom Cruise know how to leave you entertained when it comes to his action movies and thrillers. Dramas too, but fuck that "Eyes Wide Shut" shit. That could have stayed "Film Not Made" and the world would have been a better place.
Anyway, seeing Top Gun Maverick was full of nostalgia and new beginnings. Plenty of what you want to see in a movie involving fight jets. And I couldn't wait to see the cocky recruits meet the cockiest of them all because he'd actually earned the right. But, no matter how cock Maverick is, you see that he is still humble and compassionate and he really does care about them all. Even putting things into perspective for his superiors.
Expect to see some fancy ass flying moves and rules being broken.
I honestly can't think of anything I didn't enjoy. Was it predictable? Yes, but in a way you would have been disappointed if certain things didn't happen. I was sitting there with a smile on my face the whole time and my heart was pounding whenever they took flight.
FINAL VERDICT: INNOCENT LIKE MAVERICK WAS IN THE FIRST MOVIE. Movie, you managed to make me feel old and young at the same time and be happy about it. That's not an easy task. ESPECIALLY since you kept mentioning shit being 30 years ago
Lol. But you and your predecessor are still serving your country and the world respectfully, so you are free to go. Bailiff, release this movie and bring me the idiot who arrested it
for jaywalking. Some rules are meant to be broken.
