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.

3D was unnecessary and didn't add much, but movie is still amazing, a couple of slightly extended scene were added, but it is what you remember.

Allegedly Tony Scott helped get this re-release done correctly before his demise, and he would be proud of the marvelous conversion to 3-d, and an all encompassing sound track, immersing the theatre goer in the world of TOP GUN. The plot is still fairly rote, But Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis non embellished characterizations allow them to give compelling performances. Even Val Kilmer had yet to develop his quirks, and by just presenting the character (less developed in the script than the two leads) becomes quite effective, as does Tom Skerritt's as is Anthony Edwards'. Cinematography and sound design are crisp and the lazy sun of coastal California has perhaps never been better captured and the flatness of many 80's films is absent here. The film could be a textbook on editing, directly contrasting mechanical and human realms to create the pulsing rhythm, emphasized by the sound track. An experience to be relished on the IMAX screen, worth extra admission costs.

Absolutely the best movie ever made period. This version with the 3D was the best version yet. I was not expecting much going into the movie, only the chance to see the movie itself on the big screen again, but I was blown away by the effects. It was a totally immersed experience. They did a great job on this one. Even if you think the movie is very 80’s, and corny, which it’s not, you will love the action, the 3D effects and the sound!

I am the first to admit that I LOVE Top Gun! Always have! I could watch it over and over again on TV (I have!!!) and never get sick of it!!! Releasing this movie in IMAX 3D was a great idea! It brought all the actions sequences to life and added so much to the experience! This movie in Blue Ray will definitely be added to my collection at home soon! I would even go back to the theatre to see it again if the opportunity presented itself....well worth the money!!
