TOP GUN: 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION (DIGITAL HD) 1

TOP GUN REVIEWED

“Top Gun” is one of those odd movies that could’ve only happened during the Reagan years. Shot like the best looking commercial for the Air Force, Tony Scott firmly breaks into the mainstream by establishing the Bruckheimer/Simpson visual style. The film never questions the nature of what Maverick, Goose and Iceman undertake. What the film does is make military service look exciting for a never-ending onslaught of impressionable youth. Plus, it made Kelly McGillis play straight for a hot minute. Sadly, neither aspect of that film had staying power.

Watching the film again for its 30th anniversary leaves me to wonder one thing. If there was ever a serious attempt to give this film a sequel or remake it, how could it be played straight? Audiences are too aware to except a mindless military film. The story is weak and cliche. Plus, Tony Scott is dead after taking the NESTEA plunge off a bridge. If it can’t be replicated and no one can understand how it appeal to its initial base, then why does the film have staying power? Questions like that are why I watch movies alone.
