As students at the United States Navy's elite fighter weapons school compete to be best in the class, one daring young pilot learns a few things from a civilian instructor that are not taught in the classroom.
When a sports agent has a moral epiphany and is fired for expressing it, he decides to put his new philosophy to the test as an independent agent with the only athlete who stays with him and his former colleague.
Cuba Gooding Jr.,
Code-named "Maverick", Pete Mitchell, the impetuous daredevil Navy-pilot ace, is accepted into Miramar's elite Fighter School, also known as "Top Gun". There, as the impulsive pilot competes with the best of the best, not only will he meet Charlie, the flying school's curvaceous astrophysics instructor, but also the brilliant and highly competitive fellow student, "Iceman", with whom right from the start, he will engage in a reckless contest. As Maverick is haunted by his father's mysterious death, will he be able to suppress his wild nature to win the prestigious Top Gun Trophy?Written by
Following the pictures of actors in the film in the closing credits, a brief shot is shown of two F-14s flying by amidst a red sky with a mountain in the background. The closing credits play over this mountain sunset scenery. See more »
The UK widescreen VHS version released in 1996 and UK DVD versions released in 2000, later reissued in 2006 had an aspect ratio of 2.00:1. The theatrical prints and the DVD version released in 2004 (US) and 2005 (UK) have an aspect ratio of 2.35:1. Please note the UK widescreen VHS version released in 1996 incorrectly states an aspect ratio of 2.1:1 on the cover. It does in fact match the UK DVD versions released in 2000 and 2006 which had an aspect ratio of 2.00:1. See more »
Wonderful and just an entertaining movie. Those of us who love aircraft just like to watch this movie hundreds of times. To watch the main star of the picture, beautiful Grumman F-14A Tomcat is just worth repeating it at last once a week!! By the way this movie created the fad of building miniature plastic scale models of the Tomcat. Several manufacturers like Monogram and Revell started selling kits like hot cakes and they couldn't keep up with demand. Card models were also offered. The Tomcat became an overnight movie star!!! She acted beautifully, quite natural and showing her beautiful curvaceous lines uncensored!!! Just can't wait to see Top Gun II. And don't miss the soundtrack, specially "Take my Breath Away".
