I thought this was better than Top Gun. One of Michael Pare's best performances. Although he gets a lot of flack for his Brooklyn accent, I thought he had a great comedic rapport with Anthony Michael Hall. And yes, if I was pilot, I would want a guy like Shotgun on my side. Someone complained that the script was horribly written. I'm sure there were better, but somehow the actors managed to make the story interesting. The villain was well played and in my opinion, was not stereotypically evil. Rather, he was someone who was opportunistic when he was previously denied. All in all, Into the Sun definitely had me in my seat. I highly recommend it.
