“Maverick, you just did an incredibly brave thing. What you should have done was land your plane! You don’t own that plane, the tax payers do! Son, your ego is writing checks your body can’t cash. You’ve been busted, you lost your qualifications as section leader three times, put in hack twice by me, with a history of high speed passes over five air control towers, and one admiral’s daughter!”
You can always be my wingman! Tom Cruise made the movie awesome.
I’d have to say though that this movie is military overobsessiveness!
What is the plot of Top Gun? Here it is…The Top Gun Naval Fighter Weapons School is where the best of the best train to refine their elite flying skills. When hotshot fighter pilot Maverick (Tom Cruise) is sent to the school, his reckless attitude and cocky demeanor put him at odds with the other pilots, especially the cool and collected Iceman (Val Kilmer). But Maverick isn’t only competing to be the top fighter pilot, he’s also fighting for the attention of his beautiful flight instructor, Charlotte Blackwood (Kelly McGillis).
The director was Tony Scott, may he rest in peace. The soundtrack was a combination of a variety of several artists. The actual score is done by Harold Faltermeyer.
You can get the soundtrack on Amazon.
It is also available on ITunes.
