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

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...

Watching this classic on IMAX 3D was great - loved many of the scenes now on the IMAX screen!!! "Feeling the need. . .the need for Speed!!"

I grew up watching this movie and just saw it in 3D yesterday and it is still AMAZING! There are of course several details which are now out dated and maybe the captions at the beginning which state the movie takes place in present day was a mistake ... the story of friends, classmates, love, mentors/instructors, etc. - all so well written and acted. I love the new romance where the two share short, unformed sentences and awkward moments which is very realistic of a new romance. To the best friends which can complete each other's sentences and call each other family. Loved the movie from beginning to end!

Good to see it in IMax, but the 3D protion was weak, i.e. it lacked the "wow" factor I thought it would have.
Brought back memories for me of when it first came out.
