This movie was just as great as ever. The IMAX 3D made it even more awesome. I saw it when it was first released 25 years ago and I enjoyed it just as much this time. My friend's 11-year old loved it. Highly recommend it.

Was great seeing this back on the big screen especially in IMAX. Sounded great but the 3D was not good. Should have come out in regular IMAX.

A little dated, but the nice "classic 80's" flavor of this movie is enhanced by the generally excellent 3-D conversion. Great 3-D makes everything look more real, and very few of us will ever be flying at six miles up and Mach 2, or dogfighting a MIG, so "looks real" is a big treat. Cruise plays the ultra-handsome snotty little kid he mostly really was 30 years ago; he carries it well, and his edginess keeps nudging the ZOOOOOOM pace of the movie forward. The rest of the actors are top-gun and help carry a thin plot into the stratosphere; when you buy the ticket, you pretty much agree to not stop and think anything over too seriously. It's worth the premium price; you'll have real fun! You should go while Top Gun is on the Really Big Screen, so you can fly along with the theater-quality and very convincing 3-D that makes this re-release so special.

I"m a pretty big fan of Top Gun and have even dressed up as Goose for Halloween on several occaisions. I was a skeptic to the quality of the 3D and sounds since this was filmed in the 80's. But I was wrong. Those fight seens are specacular and enjoyed every second of it. My girlfriend and I walked out of the theater with giant smiles on our face. What a great way to watch a classic!!!!!!

This was a valentines gift for my fiance who has seen this movie like 200 times he swears.. I never saw it..and thought it so so..i slept thru parts..but he truly enjoyed it..the 3 D was pretty good but i think the age of the film did not make for the best you could see in the faces and far shots how it looked old. I was disappointed with the IMAX..where i live in Philly we have a IMAX at our Franklin Institute that the screen is humongous and it surrounds you on the sides that you feel like you are in the picture..the theater i went to in Cherry Hill NJ was not like that..i felt it was just a basic 3D movie where the screen was bit larger to the floor..not the same experience.. All in all ... good job bringing back a classic movie..even if it's A Guy Thing..lol and i was never a big Tom Cruise as far as the looks department...
