  • It was so good, and so cool, that it made all the wanna-be Mavericks apply to join the Air Force later in life to live the dream! We're not joking ... movieneon's creator seriously did just that!
  • Tom Cruise ALWAYS gets his girl, even if she tries to refuse after he sings to her in a public bar. Resistance is futile!
  • Meg Ryan was (is) damn cute, and Kelly McGillis was damn hot!
  • No other film in history has a cooler collection of characters names: Maverick, Iceman, Viper, Jester, Hollywood, Merlin, Goose, Cougar, Slider & Wolfman. Character names don't "get to look any better than that"!
  • Created the whole modern culture and phrase of taking a "wing-man" along with for a night on the town!

A hip, heart-pounding combination of action, music, and incredible aerial photography helped make Top Gun the blockbuster hit of 1986.

Top Gun takes a look at the danger and excitement that awaits every pilot at the Navy's prestigious fighter weapons school. Tom Cruise is superb as Maverick Mitchell, a daring young fighter who's out to become the best. And Kelly McGillis sizzles as the civilian instructor who teaches Maverick a few things you can't learn in a classroom.

Iceman
Maverick
You.

[points at Maverick]

You are still dangerous.

[pause]

You can be my wingman any time.Bullshit! You can be mine.
Maverick
I'll hit the brakes, he'll fly right by.
Maverick
Goose
I feel the need...

[together with Maverick]

...the need for speed!
Slider
Maverick
[Charlie has just given Maverick her address while pretending to turn down his date offer] Crashed and burned! Huh, Mav? Hey, Slider.

[sniffs]

You stink!
Maverick
Too close for missiles, I'm switching to guns.
