He now forms the last remaining group of unruly elite naval aviators, including Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw (Miles Teller), the son of his best friend, Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, who died during an operation in the first film. Val Kilmer also returns as Tom “Iceman” Kazansky, which gets one of the film’s most poignant scenes.

Here’s an excerpt from our review by Kristy Puchko, Mashable’s Associate Entertainment Editor:
In the moment, Top Gun: Maverick is a fun action flick that relies heavily on audiences’ love of the original to drive it through. It’s not just the callbacks and returning characters, but the repeated beats and reworking of the soundtrack that make this not so much a sequel as a victory lap for the character and Cruise as well. And honestly, it’s pretty heartwarming entertainment. But should a film about a life-or-death mission be so safe?
Nostalgia is one thing, but repeating the same plots, resuscitating the same archetypes, and rub shoulders with relics of pop culture’s past made for a movie that feels sanitized instead of sensational, safe instead of sexy. Essentially, this franchise has lost that feeling of love. And with that gone (gone, gone), so is the thrill.
