Abt at the Movies- Top Gun

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

In honor of tomorrow being the 4th of July, as well as today being the birthday of Tom Cruise,  I’ve decided to review a movie that is riddled with national pride:  Top Gun.  A sure-fre hit for those who have a need–a need for speed!

On March 1969 the United States Navy established an elite school for the top one percent of its pilots.  Its purpose was to teach the lost art of aerial combat and insure that the handful of men who graduated were the best fighter pilots in the world.

The movie opens with that brief synopsis of what exactly “Top Gun” is.  Back in the day, when producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson teamed up, each of their movies were jam-packed with explosions, pride, good looking women and lines so cheesy,  you can’t help but cheer out loud while cringing.  Top Gun has become a staple in the go-to formula for making edge of your seat action movies.  Since then, violence may have gotten more intense, plots may have gotten more complex, but Top Gun retains all the excitement and jarring Kenny Loggins-inspired soundtrack since its arrival in 1986.
