Being born in 1986, the dream of being able to see the very first movie I ever saw in my life in theaters was an impossible dream. After seeing it last night with low expectations of 3d, I was very pleasantly suprised. The movie's 3d isn't kitschy as it doesn't overdo it on the 3d effects. The effects add a good amount of depth, but nowhere in the amount you'd feel of jet's and missles flying right into your face. The best way to describe it is that it didn't distract from the movie itself, but it definetely helped enhance it. THe sound was just amazing, having only seen and heard the movie all my life with 2 front speakers of a tv, being able to hear the jets roar and scream from all around you during the scenes was amazing. The music and sound effects are just rediculously amazing at theater levels. It was also just amazing to have comradere with a crowd of people that are there to see it because they love the movie so much rather than seeing it with people that never seen it before

If you appreciate the awesomeness of 80's movies, then you'll see this for the rare treat it was. There is only one night left (tonight!) so you better go before you can't! The noise from the jets sounded like you were right there waving them off into flight, and the picture is of course better than its ever been. I laughed at all the old jokes, and even some new ones, like the first shot, aerial of an aircraft carrier with subtitles: "Indian Ocean, Present Day" hahaha - present day!! It was like a time machine - right back to the 80's. If you can make it, you should absolutely go. :>

This review is less of the movie, and more of the 3D. Top Gun is the 1986 classic that we all know, with its tense aerial combat and high-strung cold war era military. The content has not changed. What is new with this presentation is the outstanding 3D. This is, hands down, the best 3D I have seen in any movie, natively filmed or converted. The 3D is so superb that would strongly encourage people to see this release of Top Gun even if they do not like the Top Gun in order to see 3D done right. There are so many little details that the 3D conversions artists at Legend 3D did so well that you almost don't notice them. That is, they have none of the jagged little incongruent details that are present in so many 3D films and force you to constantly remember you are watching an effect. My best example of this is the glass canopies of the F-14s. The canopy is a separate layer from the people inside the cockpit, as it is in real life. I urge you to see this movie and see 3D done right.

So much fun to see in a high quality digital format and back on a big screen! Saw it when I was a kid in the theater, wore out the VHS watching it over the years, fun to get to experience the theater sound, one liners, and solid 3D (considering it wasn't shot in 3D).
