As a lifelong huge fan of the original I don’t know what the f*** everyone is smoking when giving this rave reviews.
Its awful. Generic Hollywood blockbuster awful. Cheesy jokes awful. Total lack of character development awful.
The aviation scenes were great, but the rest of the film is nothing more than a masturbatory display of Tom Cruise’s ego. Seriously, are you supposed to give two f***s about anyone else in this film? And his PG relationship with Jennifer Connelly was the type of shit you cringe at when watching a live action Disney movie.
And don’t even let me get started on the absurd plot holes. The original film was rooted in realism, this film just says f*** it and has Maverick do whatever bullshit Maverick is gonna do. Newsflash, you can’t just fly a plane in the Navy whenever you damn well please.
I don’t care how much money this film makes, its hot garbage to me
