Top Gun

The Tom Cruise/Jerry Bruckheimer/Tony Scott blockbuster, 1986's highest grossing film. Maverick (Cruise, in a career-defining role) is a rebel, hotshot pilot, sent to the elite air combat training academy. There he competes with with rival pilot ace, Ice (Val Kilmer), for top honours. His hair-raising antics don't win him fans with senior offices, but his skills in the air do. Anthony Edwards stars as his mate, Goose, and Meg Ryan is Goose's wife. While Kelly McGillis is the civilian astrophysics instructor who 'takes his breath away'.

Set in the world of naval fighter pilots, pic has strong visuals and pretty young people in stylish clothes and a non-stop soundtrack.

Once 'Top Gun... gets back to earth, the master of the skies is as clunky as a big land-bound bird.

Movies like "Top Gun" are hard to review because the good parts are so good and the bad parts are so relentless. The dogfights are absolutely the best since Clint Eastwood's electrifying aerial scenes in "Firefox." But look out for the scenes where the people talk to one another.

Not exactly a cinema classic but it has not only become a cultural icon but remains infinitely rewatchable.

The guys get incredible action sequences and simple buddy-bonding emotional moments. And the ladies get an amazing Tom Cruise playing the romantic lead while retaining an impetuous, unpredictable and exciting nature that adds depth to this on-the-surface shallow movie.

why would you be resurrecting this mediocrecliche? Is this part of the current Kiwi fad of glorifying war?
