“I canu0026#39;t believe the reviews I have read about Top Gun being technically inaccurate, not enough character development, an overall simple and childish plot… gimme a freeginu0026#39; break! This film was made to look cool, sound cool, and define cool. Yeah, okay, the MiG-28s are really F-5 Tigers; Iu0026#39;ve read the u0026#39;goofsu0026#39; section before. And Tom Cruiseu0026#39;s height. And about u0026#39;Maverick going supersonic – Iu0026#39;ll be there in 30 seconds,u0026#39; and the laws of physics preventing him from covering 200 or so miles from the carrier in that time. Whatever! So what! If Top Gun had tried to be accurate and true-to-life in every respect, it would have been some oh-so-serious flick like Courage Under Fire. Hereu0026#39;s some examples of what I mean:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e1 – whatu0026#39;s the best way to evade cannon fire? Do a snazzy barrel roll. Problem solved!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e2 – the MiG pilots have tinted visors. The good guys donu0026#39;t. Go figure.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e2.5 – Russian planes are actually grey or green. The MiG 28s are black. The Tomcats are… yeah, you guessed it… white! Good vs. Evil.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e3 – Modern air-to-air combat is usually fought at distances of tens of miles between aircraft. Top Gun uses much cooler spitting-distance WWI era tactics.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e4 – u0026quot;Itu0026#39;s too close for missiles. Iu0026#39;m switching to guns!u0026quot; Enough said.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e5 – the generic guy carrying coffee who gets knocked over by the fuming air-control officer. We never see him get up. Classic.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e6 – even the edited TV version is a few steps above normal-cool. u0026quot;… youu0026#39;ll be flying a cargo plane [edit]… out of Hong Kong!u0026quot;u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e7 – the way Iceman says, u0026quot;Mayday, Mavu0026#39;s in trouble. Heu0026#39;s in a flat spin, and heading out to sea.u0026quot;u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e8 – the graceful way Top Gun maintained a PG rating, without using the F-word once.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTop Gun came out in 1986. Thatu0026#39;s 1986. Seventeen years ago. It rocked then… it rocks now. Just watch it and have some fun.”
