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.

Every time I see it, I just want to smash Tom Cruise's smug, arrogant face into the cockpit windshield.

It's still the same old Top Gun, retaining every frame of ridiculousness and emphatic acting that turned the Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheimer production into a legend.

Basically perfect, even it is perfect at one of the worst sorts of things a movie can attempt.

You can argue that it's a cool movie, but is "Top Gun" a good movie? I'd definitely say "Hell no," topped with "Are you kidding me?"

Jet piloting is the ultimate gesture not of national defense but of personal style, as if the planes were the ultimate, unfeminizing fashion accessory.

You get about thirty minutes of good movie in Top Gun, and most of that comes at the end.

A movie for adolescents, and adults who willfully decide not to know better for a couple of hours. [Blu-Ray]

Cruise, the cheesy soundtrack and the stunning aerial photography that marks out its combat scenes are its three main selling points.

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

The only thing that got me through the movie was the hilariously dumb and macho rivalry between Val Kilmer and Tom Cruise.

Everything wrong with 80s movies in one film.

Noisy, slick, and shallow, Tony Scott's MTV-like actioner became emblematic of 1980s blockbusters, reflecting in its macho bravado and cheap elitism the mood of the Reagan era; in the process, it also made Tom Cruise the biggest star of his generation

(Its success) supports the pop-psych analysis that pre-actualized teenage boys are the most homosexual beings in existence.
