Original featured Tom Cruise on top of the movie star’s early peak, but he’s proven that even as an older guy there’s still plenty in the tank. If you’ve needed the tie-in for nearly four decades in a role, you could be far worse off than this.

Older but not necessarily wiser than Cruise’s depiction of Pete Mitchell, aka Maverick, the reckless Navy pilot whose occupation doesn’t match his high-flying skills, largely because of him has the bad habit of evading orders and disregarding authority.

“I’m where I belong,” Maverick said, when asked why he’s still captain after all these years, after the introduction to Kenny Loggins’ song “Danger Zone,” just to reset the mood.

On the verge of paying the price for it, he has one last chance, being called back to Top Gun to train pilots for a top secret mission, among which is Rooster (Miles Teller), son of Miles Teller. partner that the famous Mav has lost. first movie.

There’s so much more to it, including the chance to reconnect with old friend Iceman (Val Kilmer, people with off-screen health issues are nicely woven into the story); head-butting with the commanding officer (Jon Hamm); and an old fire (Jennifer Connelly). And yes, the film reimagines the competitive jokes between these hard-working pilots, though the ranks have been expanded to involve more people of color and one woman (Monica Barbaro) can do. get more work.

Cruise reunites with “Oblivion” director Joseph Kosinski, working from a script assigned to a trio of writers, including frequent star Christopher McQuarrie collaborator. Somehow, the film manages to span decades interspersed with, um, flying, painting the portrait of a guy whose “need for speed” has driven him forward and kept him. again, especially in terms of commitment and infinity.

Even Maverick’s seemingly grueling storyline carrying Goose’s guilt over the years, and worries about adding his kid to that ruin, works well beyond expectations. Part of that has to do with the film’s sentiments, which are sentimental things that don’t become calloused. (A dedication to lateness Tony Scott, who directed the original, is another beauty.)

However, it’s called “Top Gun” for a reason, and the aerial shots are clear and effective, conveying the emotional adrenaline and physical toll of flying through the skies as well as the mental need. to have the courage to take those risks.

Somehow, the “Maverick” manages to recycle those later beats – with a new class of pilots that are particularly brilliant – and still have a modern feel, all while being close to vintage qualities. of the film genre that thrived in the ’80s but has found the theatrical skies significantly less friendly in recent years.

Paramount has been waiting a long time to release “Top Gun” in theaters, and that bet looks set to work. Because while you can watch Maverick’s heroes in the comfort of home, as the man says, the big screen is where he belongs.

“Top Gun: Maverick” opens May 27 in US theaters. It is rated PG-13.
