Drama/Action: A veteran pilot is tasked with selecting a small team of younger fliers to carry out a dangerous, preemptive strike military mission.

Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell (TOM CRUISE) is a test pilot for the U.S. Navy's top-secret Mach 10 jet program, but when that's shut down, he's ordered to return to the branch's legendary "Top Gun" program to serve as a trainer. That's at the request of his former rival turned wingman turned eventual admiral, Tom Kazansky (VAL KILMER), although Vice Admiral Beau Simpson (JON HAMM) is less than pleased to have Maverick around.

It turns out a foreign country is going to begin enriching uranium and the U.S. government wants to do a preemptive strike. The only problem is that it's in a remote but highly weaponized mountainous area that will require expert flying skills in older jets that will have the best chance of navigating the hazardous terrain. Maverick's job -- when he's not seeing his former flame and current bar owner Penny Benjamin (JENNIFER CONNELLY) -- is to figure out who among the school's best graduates is best suited for the mission.

Among those are rivals Lt. Jake "Hangman" Seresin (GLEN POWELL) and Lt. Bradley "Rooster" Bradshaw (MILES TELLER), with the latter having a bone to pick with his new instructor -- who flew with his father who was killed in the line of duty when Rooster was just a boy -- due to Maverick having previously tried to keep him from following in his father's footsteps. With little time to spare, Maverick must not only contend with that but also getting a small team ready to carry out the low probability of success mission.

If they liked the original film or high-flying, military based action films, they probably will.
For sequences of intense action, and some strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
