Could Top Gun actually be a portrait of the dark side of American individualism?

Slickly made, it's a fairly entertaining watch that doesn't provide much beyond surface thrills, although many have had fun analyzing its (unintentional?) homoerotic content.

"Top Gun" works best as a sort of time capsule, a window into a pretty spectacular decade for big-budget filmmaking.

The unashamedly goofy 1986 dogfighting classic flips on the afterburners to make yet another pass on Blu-ray, this time soaring into the third dimension.

The 3D is impressive considering it wasn't shot for that, and the sound delivers full throttle engine roars and the legendary soundtrack sounds as crisp as ever.

If you missed it in theaters the first time, it's probably going to be the best movie theater experience you'll have so far this year.

An undeniably cheesy yet strangely appealing time capsule, with a little something for everyone provided we understand that it's all bubblegum.

There are elements that hold up - especially Cruise's blinding charisma. The aerial scenes are still thrilling, and perfectly suited to a giant screen. Everything else? Well, that depends on how nostalgic you're feeling.

The aerial sequences in Top Gun are as thrilling -- while remaining coherent -- as any ever put on film.

Watching Top Gun again twenty five years after its release is still a dazzling and dizzying experience. You are not so much on the edge of your seat as flung around it as the on-screen action endlessly spins and soars.

Whether you love Top Gun or hate it -- or hate yourself for loving it -- the fact is that when it became the top-grossing film of 1986, Hollywood in its infinite wisdom took all of the worst lessons from its success and overlooked what made it so... fun.

Among the first generation of films influenced by the cutting techniques of music videos, a progression of oversaturated, meaty images, embarrassing dialogue and awful music.

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

The story is risible, the direction routine, the underlying ethic highly questionable; but the flying stirs the blood like speed.
April 6, 2005
Not exactly a cinema classic but it has not only become a cultural icon but remains infinitely rewatchable.
