At the Liberty:TOP GUN: MAVERICK
June 2, 2022
DAYTON—After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose”. Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.

There are no audience reviews available yet because this movie begins showing in the US on Friday, May 27, when it also opens at the Liberty Theater. The summary from Rotten Tomatoes critics is “Top Gun: Maverick pulls off a feat even trickier than a 4G inverted dive, delivering a long-belated sequel that surpasses its predecessor in a wildly entertaining style.” CNN says “Nimbly mixing nostalgia and full-throttle action, Top Gun: Maverick soars higher than it has any right to, constructing a mostly terrific sequel 36 years later…” This movie is rated PG-13 (sequences of intense action, and some strong language). Commonsense media agrees that this movie is suitable for children over 12, although it notes there is some swearing (including the use of the F word). Runtime is 2 hr. 10 mins.
