Devil-may-care navy pilot Pete Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is sent to Miramar Naval Air Station for advanced training. Here he vies with Tom Kasansky (Val Kilmer) for the coveted "Top Gun" award. When not so occupied, Mitchell carries on a romance with civilian consultant Charlotte Blackwood (Kelly McGillis). Shaken up by the death of a friend, Mitchell loses the Top Gun honor to Kasansky. Worried that he may have lost his nerve, Mitchell is given a chance to redeem himself during a tense international crisis involving a crippled US vessel and a flock of predatory enemy planes. The story wasn't new in 1986, but Top Gun scored with audiences on the strength of its visuals, especially the vertigo-inducing aerial sequences. The film made more money than any other film in 1986 and even spawned a 1989 takeoff, Hot Shots. An Academy Award went to the Giogio Moroder-Tom Whitlock song "Take My Breath Away."~Hal Erickson

Rated 4 out of 5 stars
The most accurate it's ever looked
Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
With the sequel out, I thought I'd take a look at the UHD disc which will most likely be bundled with the Top Gun: Maverick 4K bundle. This comes packaged with both the standard Blu-ray and 4K disc which both feature the latest 2020 transfer. When compared to the 2008 Blu-ray, this has a much warmer tone overall and doesn't look like a COOL color preset. Images added so you can compare for yourselves. 2020 followed by the 2008 disc.
Great sounding Atmos track especially given the film's age.
If you're asking yourself which disc to get this is the one.
So I’ve owned Top Gun on VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray 1080p, and now 4K which is great because I’ve always felt the need for speed. This 4K disc was actually the first movie I bought when I bought my Epson projector and 142” screen over summer 2021 and it didn’t let me down. The 4K and Dolby Atmos absolutely delivered as everything looked and sounded spectacular !!!
Thanks Best Buy for continuing to be in the physical media game! Titles like Top Gun on 4K steel book is exactly what fans want to find in your stores! I'm very pleased with this purchase and hope to find many more classic films getting a 4K release on your shelves!

Rated 3 out of 5 stars
where is the new topgun
i was debating myself for a while to buy this ,, the 4k .. and because the new topgun still has not released ,, i been just waiting and waitin and waitin ,,, i broke down .. .
i agree with all the low ratings ,, this is not 4k or close .. i got topgun vcr when it came out ..also remember watching it with a projector sceen it was grainy too .. so it did not disappoint me watching the 4k ..
and from my very first viewing in the 80's ,, i thought back ,, girls donna fall for a guy just like that .. campy story ,but then again ,, i donna have the cruze good looks .. and of course all movies are like that .. , but .....
i wanna see the jets ,, the infamous F14 ,, love the looks , love the flying ,, love the chase .. and to see for myself the new 4k .. and since i seen this movie a lot aready ... my first 4k viewing was just the jets and on my sound system to enjoy ,,, and i just fastforwarded everything else .. so it will now sit in my collection for a later time .. when i have the need , the need for speed ..
Are you a Tom Cruise fan? I am! This TOP GUN film is a popular classic. Until the sequel is released, I will continue to view the original. The acting, directing, and narrative are outstanding. I highly recommend shopping at Best Buy. They offer a variety of films and music. With the holidays just around the corner, now is the time to buy.
I feel the need, the need to write this review! Without question, this is the best the movie has ever looked. Looks fantastic in 4K. Such a great movie and holds up. I’m glad I waited for the SteelBook, because it looks awesome.
