Tony Scott

Plot Summary

A hip, heart-pounding combination of action, music and incredible aerial photography helped make Top Gun the blockbuster hit of 1986. 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Once 'Top Gun... gets back to earth, the master of the skies is as clunky as a big land-bound bird. – Walter Goodman, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Whether you love Top Gun or hate it -- or hate yourself for loving it -- the fact is that when it became the top-grossing film of 1986, Hollywood in its infinite wisdom took all of the worst lessons from its success and overlooked what made it so... fun. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Feb 4, 2013

Rotten: Top Gun is about the training of the Navy's best fighter pilots and their blooding in cold war incidents, and the only thing Director Tony Scott has not brought up to date is the story. – TIME Magazine, Mar 8, 2011

Fresh: Set in the world of naval fighter pilots, pic has strong visuals and pretty young people in stylish clothes and a non-stop soundtrack. – Variety Staff, Variety, Mar 8, 2011
