He was THAAAT young?

A little dated, but the nice "classic 80's" flavor of this movie is enhanced by the generally excellent 3-D conversion. Great 3-D makes everything look more real, and very few of us will ever be flying at six miles up and Mach 2, or dogfighting a MIG, so "looks real" is a big treat. Cruise plays the ultra-handsome snotty little kid he mostly really was 30 years ago; he carries it well, and his edginess keeps nudging the ZOOOOOOM pace of the movie forward. The rest of the actors are top-gun and help carry a thin plot into the stratosphere; when you buy the ticket, you pretty much agree to not stop and think anything over too seriously. It's worth the premium price; you'll have real fun! You should go while Top Gun is on the Really Big Screen, so you can fly along with the theater-quality and very convincing 3-D that makes this re-release so special.

The only way to watch Top Gun

I"m a pretty big fan of Top Gun and have even dressed up as Goose for Halloween on several occaisions. I was a skeptic to the quality of the 3D and sounds since this was filmed in the 80's. But I was wrong. Those fight seens are specacular and enjoyed every second of it. My girlfriend and I walked out of the theater with giant smiles on our face. What a great way to watch a classic!!!!!!

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...

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!
