  • SKU: 6831495
  • Release Date: 12/14/2004
  • Rating: PG
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."

    The film which inspired many to join the Navy. Tom Cruise is a maverick pilot who is trying to leave his mark while romancing his instructor (Kelly McGillis). The romance is lifeless, and the climax (involving U.S. & Soviet planes) has obviously dated the film. On the plus side, Cruise & Anthony Edwards (as his sidekick) make a nice team, & I love that "Danger Zone" song.

    'Top Gun' is a movie that just didn't do anything for me. I had heard great things about it, but upon viewing it, was utterly disappointed. Anyway, for those who do enjoy this one, here is a good collector's edition with plenty of goodies included.

    Finally have this movie on DVD. Great movie with action and a love story, not to mention the beach volleyball scene. Those few minutes are worth the price all on their own!

    This is a must see for everyone. This movie shows you a part of the Navy that you usually don't get to see but in the end everyone works together for the greater good.
