Top Gun: Maverick is the sequel to Tom’s 1986 cult classic Top Gun, and the actor reprises his iconic role as naval aviator Pete Mitchell. The film also stars Miles Teller, Glen Powell, Jennifer Connelly and Jon Hamm. Val Kilmer, who had a supporting role in the original, also reprized his role in Maverick, appearing in a cameo. His character was found to be dying of throat cancer, something Val himself has battled with in real life.

Quentin Tarantino appeared on CinemaBlend’s ReelBlend podcast and said he thought that reunion was “almost too cheap.” He added: “But it absolutely works. It’s kind of like Charlie Chaplin dying onstage for the final scene of Limelight…but it fucking works. You wait for it and the damn scene delivers.”

The filmmaker added that he loved the film because it delivered “a true cinematic spectacle.” He praised the film for respecting the work of Tony Scott, who directed the 1986 original. “I love Top Gun: Maverick. I thought it was fantastic. I’ve seen it in the theatres. to date [Steven] Spielberg’s West Side Story both made for a veritable cinematic spectacle, the kind I almost thought I’d never see again. It was fantastic. [Director Joseph Kosinski] did great. Tony’s respect and love was in every frame. It was almost in every decision. It was deliberately right there, but in this cool way that was really respectful. And I think it was in every decision Tom Cruise made on the film,” he added.

Top Gun: Maverick is the highest-grossing film of the year, earning over $1 billion at the box office. Since its release, it has outperformed superhero heavyweights like The Batman and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, much to the amazement of trading analysts.
