According to the sources and fans’ judgments, it is said that the first film of Top Gun lacked some quality production and an engaging plot. However, the second part of Top Gun Maverick is filling those shoes with a captivating storyline, real-time-bound action, and quite dangerous scenes. The narrative is much more interesting with the question of life and death in this film.

The director Joseph Kosinski made sure to add tons of tension and thrill to the film Top Gun Maverick. Not only the action aspect but there’s also an equally balanced side of emotions that are portrayed well in the film. It is safe to say that Tom Cruise is the only actor that suits this genre of aviation action in a commendable way.
