Although relying on some of the alchemy that made the formula successful in 1986, the film’s awareness of cultural shifts makes for a more complete cinematic experience.
Despite the comedy, the screenplay poses some serious questions that can’t simply be brushed aside.
"Top Gun" is an ‘80s testosterone fix – a celebration of machismo and a recruiting film for the U.S. Navy.
An intimate story of tragedy and reconnection that is no less riveting than the terrain where it transpires.

What initially looks like “just another opportunity for Neeson to kick ass” turns into something less conventional.
