Top Gun: Maverick
Tom Cruise is back in a thrilling revamp that outdoes the iconic 80’s film with spectacular ariel sequences and grounded characters.
As Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise), he’s back where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous, veteran test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.
When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose”.
Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
“In a lot of ways, Top Gun: Maverick is the platonic ideal of a film sequel, constantly in dialogue with the original project, and committed to growing and expanding upon that source material.” ~Liz Shannon Miller, Consequence
