Top Gun is a riveting action film from director Tony Scott. The story follows a hot shot Navy pilot who's sent to an elite fighter school to learn aerial combat tactics. Starring Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, and Michael Ironside, the cast is pretty good. But the real stars of the film are the F-14 fighter jets, and Scott does an excellent job at capturing the intensity and excitement of the aerial maneuvers. The soundtrack is also especially well-done, and features such hit songs as "Danger Zone" and "Take My Breath Away." Adrenaline packed and incredible entertaining, Top Gun has become an iconic '80s action film. Two thumbs up for this.
