What was I thinking. If it wasn't filmed with an IMAX camera then it won't be the full size IMAX. If it wasn't filmed in 3D then it won't be the 'out in the audience' 3D. There were scenes with the jets that did not turn out all that well and they were not clear and looked as if they were hanging from a string to be filmed. The 3D did add some depth but that was all. Top Gun is still a great movie but the added cost for the movie was all hype. They should have just brought it back even with the 3D but not call it IMAX. I will admit that I did not watch this at a true IMAX but at a conventional theater converted to a mini IMAX. The picture did not fill even this small screen (the aspect ratio was not correct). There was a space at the top and bottom of the screen just like showing a true theater aspect ration on your widescreen TV.

Okay, so it's not the greatest movie ever made, but it's one I've always enjoyed. It was not made as a 3d film, so there isn't all sorts of things coming out at your face. But I enjoyed the feeling of the dimension in the regular scenes and the airplane sequences were pretty cool. I'm not sure it's worth the high price of admission, but if you are a big fan with a Fandango gift card, go for it.

Watching Top Gun in 3D at IMAX was an exciting experience after all these years when in came out in the late 80s. This classic film is one of a kind without today's computerized visual effects, when I was sitting in the theater I was captivated by the roaring engines of the F-14 Tomcats flying at the speed of light and it made me wish I were a pilot! The great Tom Cruise will always be remembered as Maverick with his famous Ray-Ban aviators, leather jacket and amazing grin, not to mention his famous catchphrase "I feel the need, the need for speed!" Actors Tom Skerritt, Kelly McGillis and Anthony Edwards were brilliant. The soundtrack is also fantastic

The 3D was done very well - it wasn't overdone but added to the experience. I would advise you to go see it in the Theater if you are a Top Gun fan! The Ticket price was a bit high - but it was Top Gun - any other movie - I would not have paid that much to see.
