Top Gun 2 movie collection

DVD Wholesale Quick Overview:

Flawless execution creates a masterpiece of filmmaking. Everything about this film works perfectly, and the different facets of artifice interlock together perfectly and their synergy produces a whole that is much more than the sum of its parts. This includes the acting, with particular distinction of Cruise in carrying the lead effortlessly, and honorable mentions to Miles Teller, Jennifer Connolly, Val Kilmer, and Glen Powell. It includes the score which blends in themes from the first movie while creating something new and engaging around the leitmotif of Lady Gaga’s Hold My Hand”, which itself is sprinkled judiciously and is so well integrated almost like incidental music that when viewers hear the full song for the first time at the end of the movie it’s a revelation. The script is top notch, with excellent pacing and blending action and expertly deployed doses of humor, while hitting all the right beats along the way, and while some critics have complained that the unnamed enemy injures the verisimilitude, this is but a quibble, as the sense of realism is light years beyond any other blockbuster of this scale (I’m looking at you, MCU!). The technical aspects of the production are of course groundbreaking, with custom cameras and lenses and painstakingly choreographed aerial sequences blended with subtle and realistic special effects, to a custom-built model aircraft, and a cinematographic touch that ranges from golden sun-drenched palettes that evoke some sense of the original Tony Scott atmospherics, to crisp combination shots with actor closeups fronting mid-distance action against rolling landscapes in the background.

Tom Cruise’s deep experience as a pilot enables him to convey an authenticity in the cockpit that stands out even amidst the sweat and heat from his helmet during the actual Gs being pulled in actual F/A-18s.

But the secret weapon of the film may be its emotional punch, which travels far beyond simple nostalgia and comprises many of the core themes of the human condition, from aging both in your profession and in life, lasting friendships, regret, loss, parenting, and yes, mortality. Grown men will shed a tear at multiple points. We care about Maverick, and sympathize with his situation as he deals with significant losses, and as he finally realizes what he needs to hold tight to.

Finally, it must be said that these are the best scenes of flying ever captured on film. The tour de force climax of the movie leaves viewers emotionally exhausted with giant grins and cheering for more. It ranks up there with the best action sequences in all of film.

As for the 4K Blu-ray edition:

The packaging is standard. The disc has a clean, dynamic, fresh-looking menu and 80 minutes of extras, including the music videos for the two new songs (Hold My Hand”, “I Ain’t Worried”), vignettes about the development of the story, the cinematography, the actor preparation, and an extended interview with Cruise at Cannes. Watching the 4K version at home even on a large screen is not like seeing this film on the big screen, where it is a quintessential movie-going experience. Nevertheless, the colors are good and the landscapes and other outdoor scenes are gorgeous.

Can’t recommend this movie too highly. This is the apotheosis of what big screen cinema can be. The creative team behind this one has honed their craft and delivered possibly the best sequel ever made.
