Review of TOP GUN: Maverick

The sequel to the movie TOP GUN from 1984 hit the theaters this weekend and it is a great sequel that takes the reins nearly 40 years later. While quite unrealistic in Pete Mitchell's predicament and stature after so many years - that's not why we watch it. Maverick is where he is because he is the "best of the best" when it comes to awesome, rogue pilots who get the job done. A bit of a teaser - know that "Goose's" son is now an aviator in the movie, and is pivotal in the plot. The action sequences are great, and there is plenty of good music reminiscent of the original flick for nostalgia's sake. If you loved the first movie, you'll undoubtedly enjoy the second film in the series... and there is a brief scene with "Iceman," with Val Kilmer recurring in this role.
