Ah, Tom Cruise.

Top Gun Maverick will completely blow fans of the original away and might even be able to create new ones along the way. Honestly, although the plot is very dependent on that of the original, I found the movie better than the original in almost every way. #TopGunMaverick pic.twitter.com/t7P4VLxMeU

Full disclosure. I am a huge Top Gun fan. But I think even if I wasn’t, I would have loved Top Gun: Maverick. The action is intense and beautiful, characters and relationships rich and rewarding, and it pulls the hearts too. It’s a special sequel and I’ll always be the wingman pic.twitter.com/i23WuIvE9m

“Honestly, I’m a huge Top Gun fan. But even if I hadn’t been, I would have loved Top Gun: Maverick. The action is intense and beautiful at the same time, the characters and their relationships are rich and rewarding, and then it’s crazy how it pulls at your heart. It’s a really special sequel, and I’ll be its wingman when needed.” Germain Lussier – Gizmodo
The first Top Gun seems to validate the sequel
These are the first returns that are definitely laudatory. And if these early American critics are only too happy to indulge in the nostalgic pleasure of discovering the sequel to a much-loved film, they fail to underline how much this new opus must be considered entirely according to its own prerogatives. Top Gun: Maverick so would be a brilliant sequel by its incredible tribute to the 1986 film, but also and above all by a cinematography and a story executed with a masterly hand.
Each of the opinions takes great care in highlighting the intensity of the footage and the many action scenes, which, knowing Tom Cruise, promises a sensational spectacle, while emphasizing the sensitive nature of the screenplay and the interpersonal relationships the characters share. And if, as always, this extreme positivism is to be carefully considered, the excitement that underlies it for this new adventure is very much there. Something to feed our impatience for the film’s release on May 25, 2022.
