Jingoism, beefcake, military hardware, and a Giorgio Moroder rock score reign supreme over taste and logic in this Tony Scott film about a maverick trainee pilot (Tom Cruise) who can't follow the rules at a Navy aviation training facility. The dogfight sequences between American and Soviet jets at the end are absolutely mechanical, though audiences loved it at the time. The love story between Cruise's character and that of Kelly McGillis is like flipping through pages of advertising in a glossy magazine. This designer action movie from 1986 would be all the more appalling were it not for the canny casting of good actors in dumb parts. Standouts include Anthony Edwards--who makes a nice impression as Cruise's average-Joe pal--and the relatively unknown Meg Ryan in a small but memorable appearance. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Top Gun was the first movie that featured cooperation by the US military on a grand scale. It spawned a new wave of Ray Ban wearing wanna be pilots with short cropped, spiky hair. Top Gun has become a cultural classic for anyone born in the 70's and 80's, and more.
Watch it. Don't expect it to be realistic...80's cinema was a different experience than it is today.
Too bad - this could have been the best release of this movie to date!
Top Gun 3D soars into blu ray with MPEG-4 MVC 2.39:1 encode, using Legend3D conversion. The picture is quite stunning on many occasions, and is the best that this classic has ever looked. The overall appearance exhibits a grainy, gritty texture. Colours are richly saturated and solid, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation are well balanced. The movie opens with the new 100th Anniversary Paramount Logo which, to no one's surprise, looks perfect. The opening titles, including the long paragraph about the history of the Top Gun program, popped right off the screen. Jet noses poke out from time to time, the smaller jets, sometimes leave the screen, but for the most part, we experience depth rather than pop-out. In some scenes, one now also experiences depth instead of flat cardboard cutouts. The added dimensional depth and perspective enhances the realism of the serial shots and the backdrops, such as the distance to the ground and position of jets relative to other jets in the sky. This 3D version, with its effective spatial realism, is preferred to the 2D version. (4.5/5)
Top Gun 2D soars into blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.39:1 encode. This film is Paramount’s third trip to blu ray: 2008 and 25th Anniversary Edition (2011). While 3D Top Gun was a brand new transfer, the 2D version seems to be the same as the 2008 version, when one notices 2008 marked on the 2D disc. I delayed buying Top Gun blu ray until now because the video transfer in 2008 was simply not top-notched. The overall transfer simply looks poorly aged. Colours appear overly saturated and somewhat embellished. Blacks maintain some semblance of accuracy, but tend to take away some of the finer details in the shadows.Read more ›
Actors seemed orange and the sky was kind of blue-grrenish.
So I typed Top Gun 3D orange on google and found this thread.
I'm re-assured now, I'm not crazy.
I mean I grow Up With Top Gun, Owned 2 VHS (first one broke) the 2 DVDs versions, HD-DVD then Blu-Ray ones and now this one.
I'm a big fan of Tony Scott and his aesthitics, but this presentations feels like you're watching you're movie through an orange-yellow veil.
Even whites are not whites.
Paramount f***ed it up pretty bad as far as I'm concerned.
Although technically the 3D is pretty great, although scr**ed by the color scheme.
