Top Gun (1986)


A daring young pilot competes for best in the class at the U.S. Navy's elite fighter weapons school, and puts the moves on the civilian instructor.


Everything I expected it to be. Super cheesy, the acting and the background music, but the air sequences are pretty cool. Since I knew so much about it before, I felt almost like I had already seen it without actually seeing it, so there wasn't too much to be gained only now to say that I had actually seen it.

Tom Cruise ... Maverick
Val Kilmer ... Iceman
Tim Robbins ... Merlin
