Matt Rutter’s review:
I know a lot of people really love the whole gung ho attitude of the movie and Tom Cruise’s character, but that attitude really turned me off. Tom Cruise’s “Maverick” is the type of guy that would be referred to as a “douche bag” today. I didn’t like it when I originally saw it in the 80’s and I like it even less now. Not only is Tom Cruise and the rest of the characters unlikeable, but the dialog’s cheezy and there’s lots of bad 80’s pop music.
