It’s all very evocative and referenced to the first film. But, most reviewers think Rogue eclipses top Gunastonishingly!

“The tramp takes to the skies, sticks to the formula”

USA TodayBrian Truett jokingly says that Tom Cruise knows what the audience wants and doesn’t waste time giving it to them. But, there’s also a heartfelt emotional streak to this high-flying adventure.

“As wildly cool as the air fight scenes were originally, the sequel’s action sequences level them with unrealistic camera angles and nonstop tension. Kosinski’s goal is to give moviegoers the feeling that GG-forces yours. What’s it like to bang heads and wonder where the bad guys are coming from in Blue Blaze. Toss in the unmistakable Harold Faltermeer theme and it’s like you’re 10 years old again, watching Maverick rule the air for the first time. Watching it happen.”

A Barrier-Breaking Sequel

varietyK Peter DiBruz feels the film just soars high. It is no small feat to justify the existence of a sequel so many years after the fact. But, incredibly, Maverick manages to do so.

One could argue that our post-Cold War new world didn’t need a “Top Gun” sequel. (Tom Cruise himself once insisted so.) But it would be wrong to do so. Building on the three-parts-steel-to-one-part-corn equation, which director Tony Scott set so effectively 36 years ago, the new film far more than merits its existence, Cruise’s character, “Pete”. Maverick” reflects in pursuing Mitchell. What Machines Can Do – In this case the machine is the cinema, which takes to the skies as there have been no blockbusters before.
