On Father's Day morning, Jack, Sharon and I went to see Top Gun: Maverick at the Country Club Cinema. We had watched the original 1986 Top Gun on Saturday night.
The sequel stars Tom Cruise as Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell reprising his role from the original. It includes Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, and Val Kilmer. I was surprised to see Jon Hamm with such a large role in the movie.
Set 36 years after its predecessor, it follows Maverick's return to the United States Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program. Cruise trains a group of younger aviators for a suicide mission, among them the son of Maverick's deceased best friend.
Jack and Sharon both really liked the movie. When it was over, Jack said "that was awesome." Sharon liked it a lot more than the original...
