Top Gun: Maverick: Tom Cruise Soars in a Worthy Sequel 

Top Gun: Maverick is a sequel that was well worth the wait. Tom Cruise once again plays the role of Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, and this time around he is training a new generation of fighter pilots. The action is intense, and the aerial scenes are spectacular. Top Gun: Maverick proves that Cruise still has what it takes to be one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. The plot also has a great focus on honor and duty, which is very rarely seen in action films.

The plot begins when Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) returns to the naval base after having served a short time in prison. He joins up with his old squadron, the Fighting Redcocks, and quickly earns their respect and admiration. 

His contributions to the squadron are soon noticed by Lieutenant General Tawney (Ed Harris), who recruits Maverick for a top-secret top-dog operation. The mission involves learning to “learn how to think” instead of just relying on reflexes and reflexes alone. The craft needed for this operation is an F14 Tomcat fighter jet named “Iceman.

What inspired the Top Gun movie series and what is its overall message or theme?

The series is inspired by the 1986 film, Top Gun. This movie was loosely based on the book The Fighter Pilot written by retired Navy fighter pilot Commander Ted Gup. The main character of Top Gun Maverick shares many traits with that of Top Gun, which is highly unrealistic as a result. 

Which character in the movie is the director’s favorite and why?

Tom Cruise, Chris Parnell, and the President of Paramount Pictures mentioned in his statement, “We believe this is a perfect time and with the perfect team to reimagine such an iconic movie.” The President also mentioned that “We could not think of anyone more capable than Joe Gatt and Jack Reher to write, produce and direct this version of an American classic.”

In what way is the Top Gun Maverick series different from the film?

The movie had several technical errors, so many viewers commented that it was highly unrealistic for anyone to be able to do the things the main character did. While making the show, Joe Gatt tried to make it as realistic as possible, so he hired a retired Naval aviator who worked with his team on this project. 

Who do you think should have won the volleyball game between Maverick and Iceman?

The main character is played by Tom Cruise, I think he should have won. Because there are some reasons for it. Firstly, Maverick has more experience in playing volleyball and planes than Iceman does. As a pilot Maverick is much older than Iceman by 30 years, so I think he has more practical experience in it. Secondly, Iceman was not trying so hard when they were playing with each other; in my opinion, he might be lazy.
