Top Gun Movie Summary

Hot-shot naval actor, Tom Cruise, plays hot-shot naval pilot Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell along side his co-pilot “Goose” Bradshaw of the Tri-Lambs. The film opens up with the dynamic duo flying their F-14A Tomcat in a mock battle against some MiG-28s over the Indian Ocean. During the melee, Maverick flips his jet upside down so he can give his rival plane the finger, cockpit to cockpit.

There’s another F-14A Tomcat flying alongside Maverick and Goose which is flown by “Cougar.” When he is almost shot out of the sky by the MiGs, Cougar is too shaken up by the near death experience to land his plane. Maverick talks Cougar down with a personal escort.

Cougar lands safely, and gives it all up for his family. With Cougar’s retirement, Maverick is the best the Navy has. He and Goose attend the Top Gun school for the best of the best pilots.

  1. Good first episode, although not your best. Completely disagree with you guys on your views of the film. I don’t believe that the film was designed to be home-erotic. I believe that as in most films, the viewer takes away what they want to take away from a film. You guys should look at yourselves for the “homoerotic undertone.” Regardless, Top Gun is one of the greatest 80’s films of all time.

    1. Thanks for listening and thanks for the feedback. I agree their intent wasn’t to make a homoerotic film, that’s what makes it funny. We can only take what they give us. Enough about the film, you sound kindof hot, are you single?
