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

Top gun knows exactly what to do with special effects. I love this movie and the image. I watched it ten years ago and now I buy it. It related in the military unit. "Top Gun" are hard to review because the good parts are so good and the bad parts are so relentless. I work for an Air force missile defense agency that is the reason I love this movie.
A MUST BUY! The ATMOS track alone is worth the pur
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
I've been a fan of this movie since I was a child, I've owned the DVD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, and now the 4k UHD Blu-ray. They did remove some grain but enough is there to retain the feel, the expanded color and high dynamic range is excellent. Overall it's a feast for your eyes but what about your ears? The ATMOS track is superb for a movie this old, the expanded sound stage and the use of transition of sound from above you is thrilling, like when the jets are flying all around the transition of sound as the planes pass over, pass by, or move from base speakers to overhead speakers is incredible. As I said the ATMOS track alone is reason enough to buy this movie. I highly recommend this be on your purchase list.
Top Gun is easily one of my all time favorite movies. The film tells the story of hot shot pilot Maverick played by Tom Cruise (Mission Impossible Franchise, Edge of Tomorrow), who is sent to the Top Gun Naval Fighter Weapons School, Maverick befriends Goose played by Anthony Edwards (ER, Zodiac), when his cocky personality put him at odds with the other pilots including Iceman played by Val Kilmer (Batman Forever, The Saint). It then turns out Maverick isn't only competing to be top fighter, he is also fighting for the attention of the gorgeous flight instructor, Charlie Blackwood played by Kelly McGillis (Witness, Cat Chaser). All the actors do great in their roles especially Tom Cruise who really made Maverick his own. The film also features Tim Robbins (The Shawsank Redemption, Green Lantern) and Michael Ironside (Starship Troopers, Total Recall). I love everything about Top Gun, I love the soundtrack, the characters, the story, the quotes and the movie itself. I can't wait for the sequel that's coming next year.
Top Gun has never looked or Sounded better...This 4K upgrade was totally worth the price...I have owned top Gun on every format available and this is the best it’s ever looked and the best it’s ever sounded. I’m so happy this movie got the 4K treatment plus a new atmos mix. If you love this movie it’s a no brained to upgrade!
What 3D really does is give you a much fuller view of the movie. I found it to be engaging and the shots of the planes in the air so much richer.
I also love added value of getting multiple versions of the movie, 3D, Blu-Ray, and Digital Copy
