Thirty-one years after its release, this is still my favorite Tom Cruise movie. There is a lot of action, of course, but the drama and little bit of comedy are also done well. The cast is very good overall. I just saw the news that Tom Cruise has confirmed a sequel is definitely happening and will likely begin filming in the next year. It seems like a good time to watch it again. Top Gun is rated PG, though it would probably be rated at least PG-13 if released today.

So fast and furious,
So need for speed,
So gone in sixty,
So D-BOX-worthy,
That this film should be illegal 'cause it doesn't come with seatbelts.

And people who quote from its most awesome script should be fined,
And they are at Naval Air Station Fallon in Nevada,
Home of the real TOPGUN...
And some Navy SEALs...

This is a 1986 American aviation action drama directed by Tony Scott, inspired by an article titled "Top Guns" published in California magazine three years earlier.
Although the film's pro-military stance isn't so good, you should be able to enjoy this flick if you like air-combat video games.
Since I have a pilot licence, I could enjoy it to the hilt---probably 200 percent.
If you don't have one, you should still be able to enjoy this movie up to 150 percent :-).

I'm sure everyone has already seen this movie and does not need a comment, so I'll just say too much machismo and ego for me.

Sky high entertainment!

Dogfights, comedy, tragedy, a love story, and even beach volleyball!

Top Gun has it all! The best film of the 80s!

Some come for the awesome aerial photography and '80s soundtrack.
I don't think Top Gun's fanbase would be as large or devoted without the film's themes of courage, friendship, loss, and redemption. Plus you can learn a lot about courtship here.

This is the very first movie that I was able to quote line for line in its entirety because I had seen it so many times. It's rife with quotes. Looking back now, I give credit to the writers, directors and supporting actors that helped make this film so great. It was never about the principle actors, for me. Now I can't wait to re-live it at home on blu-ray w/surround!

ATTENTION HOMETHEATER OWNERS!!! This movie is for you. I purchased this version of "Top Gun" several years ago and love the 6.1 DTS sound. Of course a movie with jets in it roaring their engines and taking off will certainly shake your apartment floors,walls, and anything else that's not cemented to the floor. One great surprise about the sound was the song called "Take My Breath Away". If you have a 6.1 or 7.1 setup, listen to the vocals in this song as the lead singer sings in your center channel while she hums in your rears. That was very cool and a nice addition i didn't notice before with the 5.1 version. I played this disc at reference level and had a ball listening to the jets flying around my apartment firing missles and buzzing the tower. This version is a must if you love sound. I give this movie 5 stars!!! The powerful roar of jet engines, Great sound track, and very good air battles. Roast pork with brown rice, cornbread, and Arizona ice tea.
