"Top Gun" takes a look at the danger and excitement that awaits every pilot at the Navy's prestigious fighter weapons school. Tom Cruise is superb as Maverick Mitchell, a daring young flyer who's out to become the best. And Kelly McGillis sizzles as the civilian instructor who teaches Maverick a few things you can't learn in a classroom.
It is worth seeing "Top Gear" in DVD or Blu-Ray with the cool soundtrack with some of the all-time best songs from the 1980's. There are over three hours on the making of, marketing and music videos. The special effects still look good today and the film is well made and has some good character development and romance. The film is feel good propaganda sometimes but does not get too heavy and shows the real problems the pilots face in training and combat. I would recommend this film even to people who have seen it a few times already, like I had.
I would recommend seeing "Top Gun" again on disk as this film has some of the coolest tunes from the era and there are plenty of extras on the disk with over three hours of making of specials. The special effects still look good today and the film has a great story that shows the problems faced by the elite academy of pilots that want to make the "Top Gun". This is set against a real human interest subtext with a romance developing for the main characters while they face crashes and air combat operation challenges. I would recommend seeing "Top Gear" for the action and romance with the sound track typical of the 1980's.
