Not only love the movie with the great music and beautiful plane scenes but really like the 3D effect.

Let me start by saying that I am like the only person on earth who had not seen this movie until this last week. I really enjoyed the 3D effects and the way they were used with the arial shots. I even enjoyed the feel good love story and the super cheezey 80's music. Made an awesome date movie. Overall... loved it!

Great to see this movie in IMAX 3D!!! What a way to experience all the action, flight scenes, and to know that Val Kilmer could have gotten his eyebrows trimmed. The IMAX 3D puts you right in the movie, to discover the surroundings like you're there.
This is a classic, defining the 80's, and would have been nice to see a part 2, picking up 25 years later. Who knows it might still happen!!!! Thanks to all that made this happen in IMAX

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.

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.
