back in the 70s reagan utilized the popularity of star wars to promote his missile plans. now another republican utilizes another movie for his political propogada.
where star wars was actually a good popcorn mive, top gun isnt even that. its fx over substance and its easy to see why bush was attracted to this militant gibberish.
the movie is insulting in its dumbing down.
and the recent bush doll says a lot for this 'right wingers inspiring movie', this actor and this current commandar in chief.
no wonder europeans laugh at us

Arggghhh! I was so disappointed by this one. Somehow I was lead to believe that this "classic" was going to be entertaining. I curse the people who recommended this to me. The only consolation throughout the entire movie is Tom Cruise's presence, but even that gets old. And if I have to hear that damned "Take my Breath Away" one more time, I'm going to scream. I'm sure you're a busy person. Don't waste your time. And don't exert the effort of putting this one in the VCR and pressing play. It bites. In a big way.

Unlike the previous "Viewer from US", this is not realistic Navy life. This movie is so distorted it is laughable. Watch this movie as a comedy, not anything approaching reality. It's a total Tony Scott MTV commercialization (which he ueses again in "Revenge"). The only redeeming quality are the flying sequences (which are to take place over water, yet you can see the mountains in the background). For more realism watch "Red Flag" with Barry Bostwick, even though it may still be only seen on TV.

This one goes in the can as one of the all time worst films ever to be made. Tom Cruise once again proves that he can play Tom Cruise with impeccable simplicity, and is mind numbingly dumb enough in this film to suck like minded idiots in. This film is ten years behind it's release date in every facet of film making, not to mention the appalling social commentary we are ment to lap up like a bunch of salivating neanderthals. No, I haven't lost that lovin feeling, but I was glad when Goose died! I wish maverick did too!

It never ceases to amaze me that some people actually beleve "TOP GUN" has a basis in reality. Because it doesn't. "STAR TREK" rings truer than "TOP GUN". Go back to High School young men, and maybe someday maybe you'll get a drivers licencse. If you think you can race your Kawasaki against a jet aircraft down the runway on a military installation without getting shot...then maybe its too late for you already. Get real! Get your G.E.D.

i wanna give 1& half stars but that system isn't available.anyway this film is pretty brain-dead and catchy with all kinds of cliches.Tom Cruise: when i see him i see Money but no talent at all.he is able to sell anything and he did with this film.very 80's catchy soundtrack&some stunts with some locker room humor that worked well in 86 but hasn't aged that well.Kelly MCGillis is okay.

The widescreen version of this movie, is actually just the full screen version with the top and bottom replaced with black bars. This means even more is cropped from the movie, and you actually see even LESS than the full screen. This is fraudulent, and the video and sound quality are mediocre. It's a real shoddy job for such a good movie.

Top Gun is the standard when it comes to bad 80's movies, i.e., scero plot, dumb women and characters that are so bland and tame that you could have replaced them with props. The only good scene...no ha...there is not a single memorable scene in this forgettable movie. It is nice to see that Tom Cruise survived this turkey.

The only thing worth watching in this film is the flying scenes. The rest of the movie is such bogus tripe that it is painful to watch. Use the fast forward key to skip to the flight scenes and ignore the rest.
