Top Gun: Maverick

Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. Training a detachment of graduates for a special assignment, he agrees to take on one more project–an ultra-high-speed bird with revolutionary new technology. His friendship with this straight-arrow friend becomes personal and Pete’s chances for continuing his independent lifestyle on the ground dwindle

What is the plot of the story ?

After taking the lead in developing high performance fighter jets for the US government’s high speed program, he finds that his rival has beaten him , He lost out because he has more to prove than anyone else. We see him at this point doing a few training flights with some of his best students and we get to see them behind-the-scenes. He and some of these students decide to participate in an unsanctioned test flight of which no letters will be sent regarding it.

Who is in the cast ? What role did each character portray ?

The cast include Tom Cruise , Miles Teller , Jon Hamm, Val Kilmer , J. K. Simmons . Tom Cruise portrayed the role of Maverick , the hot head pilot, who can never leave the field without a battle. Miles Teller played his rival Brad “Lonely” White, who is the new guy in town. Jon Hamm was put up to playing his instructor Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, and Val Kilmer played that of ‘Viper’ a smooth talker with a lot of experience in battle. J. K. Simmons played that of ‘Stinger’ , an old man with 60 years of experience as an instructor and good friend to Maverick and Goose.

What are the difficulties they face ?

Maverick faces the risk of being taken out of service due to his bad attitude and age , hence he needs to test his new plane which is in a way a last attempt to prove that he can still do what he knows best, fly. Brad White on the other hand is ‘spying’ on Maverick , trying to undermine him. This would get him promoted and give Brad an upper hand. Maverick gets Goose and the others to secretly arrange a test flight for the new X-61, which has been banned for testing because it’s too dangerous . The flight goes well until Maverick loses control of it .

What are the themes ?

The main theme seems to be one of a life lived to the fullest . Maverick is a man who likes to live his life so fast it’s almost hard to keep up. This can be seen in his overconfidence, but also in how he lives his life. He was never married and always had girls on the side which he never got serious with, he always had an excessive party lifestyle which won’t seem natural for someone in their 50’s and 60’s , but it appears that he has no intentions of slowing down any time soon , it is clear that this an essential part of who he is and the only way he knows how to live.

Who is the antagonist ? What are its motives ?

The antagonist in the movie is called Brad White, a new guy in town. He is said to be arrogant and thinks he can come in and snatch Maverick ‘s glory. He also appears to have no sense of friendship or loyalty, he will do anything behind his friend’s back. The epic scenes in this movie are the ones with Maverick in his plane. The fast-paced, high octane scenes of flying over the ocean, close to the ground with water exploding off it, are truly worth watching. There’s no better way to illustrate Maverick than with these scenes. They’re very short and intense , but they definitely make an impact especially when put together in a sequence.

Would you recommend watching this ?

Yes , the movie is excellent and has very good content as well as theme. The fact that it had a high rating of 8.1 , I think, is a good enough reason to watch this. Thanks for reading !
