    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★★

    The filmmaking is so elegant, the narrative stakes are so clear, and the emotions are earned. I love how the audience is primed to know every step of the mission. Ed Harris and Jon Hamm make perfect foils for Maverick, with their perplexed looks and condemning attitudes that ultimately transform into how (damn it) Cruise is the only man for the job. A sentiment that is true in every respect.

    A great Chris Hemsworth performance can’t salvage this movie, which feels stuck at the conceptual level and fails to derive any real or compelling narrative beyond the intriguing ideas at play. Kosinski can’t quite get a handle on tone here, either.  

    Is this the first movie to have a New Yorker logo in front of it?
