Top Gun is one of the most iconic movies of all time. If we’re being honest, we really never thought that a sequel would be made, because when its been over three decades since the original film, one can give up.
But the world sometimes throws you a bone and gives you what you’ve been waiting for – even when you didn’t know that you had continued to wait. Top Gun: Maverick has been a waiting for two years to come out due to the pandemic, as it is a movie that deserves to be seen on the screen.
Like with all sequels, we’ve been afraid. What if they ruined the story we love so much? What if it was bad? What if they didn’t pay homage to the original in a way that worked?
There seems like when it comes to it, we have more questions than answers. As we await Sunday (because that’s when we have the time to see Top Gun: Maverick) we’re combing the internet for all the reactions to calm our nerves about a movie that we can’t wait to see.
And the internet says that this movie has been worth the wait.
IT’S A REMINDER OF WHAT CINEMA SHOULD BE
Top Gun: Maverick is pure cinema. That’s it, that’s the tweet.— Eammon Jacobs (@EammonJacobs) May 18, 2022
No seriously, it’s one of those rare flicks that reminds you how incredible a movie-going experience can be. Tom Cruise is a mad man, and I loved it. #TopGun #TopGunMaverick pic.twitter.com/TA8zgtwNkH
YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO STOP THINKING ABOUT IT
Not even kidding like #TopGunMaverick didn't have to go this hard bro. Like how you gonna top this now. This is literally the movie of the year for me. I don't even think Avatar 2 gonna top this. Everything about this film just works man. I can't stop thinking about it.— Rohit Rajput #TopGunEra (@Rohit_Rajput757) May 24, 2022
NOSTALGIA AT ITS FINEST
My dad’s favorite movie was TOP GUN.— Brian Kemm (@BrianKemm) May 28, 2022
I have no doubt #TopGunMaverick would have surpassed the original as his new all time favorite. It was simply spectacular. I wish he could’ve seen it.
THE MAKING OF MOVIE STARS
Can't praise the cast of #TopGunMaverick enough. This is easily one of Tom Cruise's best performances in years and his chemistry with Jennifer Connelly really works too. Both Miles Teller & Glen Powell display so much movie star charm. It's a charming core of new young pilots. pic.twitter.com/L5rA8kiojx— Will Martinez (@willmovies) May 24, 2022
IT SHOULD SAVE MOVIE THEATERS
#TopGunMaverick may single-handedly save movie theaters, or at least delay their extinction. This movie MUST be seen in the theater.— JS🅰️ (@Saved102718) May 28, 2022
IT’S A HELL OF A RIDE
#TopGunMaverick is a hell of a ride. It exceeds the original in pretty much every way and Tom Cruise gives one of the best performances of his career. And the third act of this movie is some of the best edge of your seat action I’ve seen in years. pic.twitter.com/776Yed8qSm— Kenny Bacak (@kenny_bacak) May 25, 2022
ACTION, ACTION, ACTION
IT’S A TURN ON
We just saw #TopGunMaverick and my nipples will be hard for the next week.— Michael Connor (@MC790) May 28, 2022
IT’LL MAKE YOU FEEL EMOTIONS, LOTS OF THEM
