Wow, a brilliant film if indeed there was one. The best film of Tom Cruise's career for the simple fact that it has everything you expect to see in a Tom Cruise film, his mentor played by Brian Brown is excellent and the many pretty girls and exotic locations and romance make this a great film to watch 100 times in one day and keep you up beat and in the mood to drink a sex on the beach and go on a vacation.
This film has a surprise twist towards the end and a truly inspiring final ending which provides every young man with a dream with hope and excitement. The perfect follow up to the previous success of Top Gun. 10/10.. and I will watch it again. Cocktails & Dreams.
