Okay, I am a little biased, this review comes from a young man who grew up watching Top Gun (in the theater!!!), has both parents as pilots, and I graduated from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Well, if you have to ask if this movie is any good, you don't need to watch it at all. It is well known and enjoyed by all aviation enthusiasts that this movie is fantastic! BTW, who didn't insert this into the dvd player as the very first movie watched when you got the new HDTV?!?! Honestly, can't give it 5 stars, I know, blasphemy, but it has some flaws. However, you must discover those flaws for yourself, as they are a staple part of being a pilot that "requests a fly-by!"
