TOP GUN: AFGHAN WINGS

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Film -

Of all of Jerry Bruck­heimer’s block­busters (in­clud­ing Bad Boys, Na­tional Trea­sure and

Bev­erly Hills Cop), Top Gun has to rank as one of the most con­spic­u­ously se­quel-free. It es­tab­lished mem­o­rable char­ac­ters, launched its lead ac­tor into the strato­sphere and, most im­por­tantly, is still re­mem­bered. Con­sid­er­ing that the first film was all about train­ing, it would be fun to see Mav­er­ick (Tom Cruise) and Ice­man (Val Kilmer) in a real war zone. One of them could play an in­struc­tor (they’ve both aged well and are still rea­son­ably fa­mous), which would make room for some young blood.
