#TopGunMaverick is a profound cinematic experience and easily the best film of the year. What Kosinski, @chrismcquarrie, @eddiehamilton and of course @TomCruise have accomplished is epic and intimate, heart stopping and heartbreaking. However good you think it’ll be, it’s better. pic.twitter.com/gZ75xQYxDs

Absolutely loved #TopGunMaverick. Blown away by the cinematography and flying scenes and of course @TomCruise’s performance. Rest of the cast was great with special props to @Miles_Teller and @glenpowell. This is the kind of movie you want to see on the biggest screen possible. pic.twitter.com/PIfs2aGi2v

TOP GUN: MAVERICK is the perfect blockbuster. Not only did it feature dazzling aerial combat sequences, but I actually cried, it’s that emotional. And call me crazy, but I humbly predict that it WILL land a Best Picture nod next year. It’s not just THAT good, it’s VERY good. 😉

Kosinski and Cruise To be Proud on their Film
Earlier, critics showered their praises towards Maverick‘s cast and crew but specifically mention that director Joseph Kosinski and star Tom Cruise should be proud of this amazing sequel they have created.
The final cut is of 2 hours and 11 minutes, which became the result due to the production who worked extremely hard to sort and filter from an immense amount of available footage.
Kosinski previously revealed that they “shot as much footage as the three Lord Of The Rings movies combined,” which was around 800 hours. He described it as “hard-earned,” since “…Out of a 12- or 14-hour day, you might get 30 seconds of good footage.”
Welcome to Tom Cruise boot camp
From this sequel, we definitely will get to see Tom Cruise who also had a direct hand in the flying sequences shown in Top Gun : Maverick. From the movie itself, we can definitely see how rigorous the production was done that also involved Cruise training his co-stars to fly F/A 18 Super Hornet jets.
Tom Cruise said, “I developed a whole program for the actors, and how we could get them in the [F/A-18s], It was every step of the way. I had to teach them how to fly. Had to teach them how to handle Gs. I had to get them confident in the airplane.”
Joseph Kosinski directed Top Gun: Maverick is a 2022 American action drama film, written by Ehren Kruger, Eric Warren Singer, and Christopher McQuarrie, from a story conceived by Peter Craig and Justin Marks. It is the sequel to 1986’s Top Gun starring Tom Cruise as the test pilot Maverick, alongside Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, and Val Kilmer.
