In Top Gun: Maverick, Cruise has his patented charm, energy, and credibility.

Gorgeous cinematography, insane flying action sequences, thrilling, emotionally moving, and a sequel that absolutely surpasses its predecessor. Well-paced, executed & has that re-watchability factor.

Along comes a film like Top Gun: Maverick (a film which the release was delayed a couple of times) and it reminds us of the good ole days in several ways. Thank you Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion, Spiderhead) and even bigger props to the ageless Tom Cruise.

As much fun as it is when a familiar formula is well-executed, this movie is also an altar to America's obsession with youthfulness, its exaltation of white super-men, its worship of heavy artillery ... and (sigh) its objectification of women as trophies.

Maverick’s fidelity to the past goes deeper than dollar signs. This is a film where generational commitments matter and institutional continuity is valued.

The film is lovingly dedicated to the late Tony Scott, who directed “Top Gun.” I’d like to think that he would give a thumbs up and a salute to “Top Gun: Maverick.”

Top Gun: Maverick is not bloated fan service, and it hits you with the right amount of nostalgia. A thrilling summer blockbuster!

An action movie that's this visibly wondrous and entertaining, knows it's walking in familiar footsteps but puts in a bold effort to make this return trip mean something is electrifying and, yes, breathtaking.

As someone who typically hates sequels, this is by far one of the best ones ever made. It pays homage to the original and elevates everything!

This was a very entertaining two hours that I might have enjoyed more than the original.

"Top Gun: Maverick" pulls out all the stops to make this moviegoing experience an absolute spectacle.

Armed with a squadron of F-18s, compact digital cameras, and a wild disregard for Tom Cruise’s personal safety, Maverick’s aerial sequences are the most spectacular ever filmed.

bears some residual traces of its predecessor, but it also shines in its own right, bringing to its title character a surprisingly effective sense of gravitas and emotional endurance

Joe Kosinski matches his well-established architectural precision with suitably nostalgic but never pandering emotionality, while Cruise commands the screen in a performance that leverages his multimillion-dollar star wattage to brighten the entire film.

It's wild what a plot can do. Where Top Gun succeeded on vibes alone, Maverick understands that the reason for getting all these characters together needs enough substance to sustain our interest in them as people.

Top Gun Maverick is cinematic in every way. It’s a gift to traditional filmmaking and meant for the biggest screen possible. One of Tom Cruise's strongest films.

An impressive action sequel that stays away from everything other than pure escapism. And that's great!

Joseph Kosinski and his team have umbraced the plot cliché thats put face to face past and present, turning it into a narrative engine that makes take off what we could describe as the perfect blockbuster.

Top Gun: Maverick is a mature blockbuster and an improvement over its predecessor.
