2022 ( USA ) ( Action, Drama )
Starring: Tom Cruise, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller
Director: Joseph Kosinski
Not only does it avoid the danger zones of the long-awaited sequel, but Top Gun : Maverick is a lot better than the original. The dialogue is sharper, the plot is more gripping and the vastly improved aerial stunts really do take your breath away.
Twelve of the best pilots return to the US Navy’s fighter weapons school, aka Top Gun, to face selection for a hugely dangerous secret mission considered nigh on impossible. Maverick (Tom Cruise) by call-sign and maverick by nature is called back to teach them how to do it. It is his last chance.
Top Gun: Maverick works on so many levels. The flying sequences are stunning, sound and photography top-notch, editing and pacing truly outstanding, but this is also a thriller with real heart. Near cinematic perfection!
