You can also rent or buy the movie on platforms such as Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, Apple TV, and Vudu.
A Nostalgic Reunion
The Top Gun sequel movie isn’t perfect but has all the things you’d hope for. It brings back good memories, has exciting scenes, and is worth seeing in the cinema.
“Top Gun: Maverick,” the highly anticipated sequel to the original, was initially set to release in 2020 but was delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As of March 2022, it has not been released in theatres or for streaming. However, you can watch the trailer on YouTube and other platforms.
Same Dog, New Tricks
The original “Top Gun” follows the story of Maverick, a skilled fighter pilot played by Tom Cruise. He trains at the elite United States Navy Fighter Weapons School, commonly known as “Top Gun.” Along the way, he falls for one of his instructors, Charlie, played by Kelly McGillis. And confronts the loss of his best friend, Goose, played by Anthony Edwards.
“Top Gun: Maverick” picks up 35 years after the events of the original film. Maverick is now a flight instructor and facing the rise of new, advanced technology. It threatens to make his skills obsolete. The sequel stars Tom Cruise once again, as well as Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, and Miles Teller.
Retains the Charm
After 35 years, Tom Cruise, who is now 59, stars in a sequel that brings back old-school heroism in the age of superhero movies. The movie is full of thrills and redemption. While it retains the charm of the original, the franchise has matured and now tackles the wisdom and consequences of death, which challenge the carefree courage of youth.
In the movie, Maverick is cleared of responsibility for his friend Goose’s death but still feels guilty. Training Rooster gives Maverick a chance for redemption. As he ages, he realizes he can’t make rash decisions like before. It’s interesting to see a hero in his 60s tackle his past, face professional stagnation, and choose to be a loner.
The director of the movie, Joseph Kosinski, keeps the same style as the first Top Gun movie. There are impressive flying scenes and intense emotions. The famous line, “I am a fighter pilot. This is not what I do. This is who I am.” reflects Tom Cruise’s passion for the movie and the thrill of flying. He worked hard to make sure everything looked and sounded real.
If you’re a fan of action and drama, both “Top Gun” and “Top Gun: Maverick” offer thrilling storylines. Aerial dogfights and iconic music are also present. Whether you’re watching for the first time or revisiting these classic films, they’re sure to leave you on the edge of your seat.
