So it took Cruz 36 years to return to the danger zone to bring out the sequel Top Gun, and the first reviews from film critics said it was worth the wait.

Top Gun: Maverick received a 96 percent positive rating on the Rotten Tomatoes review aggregation site, which garnered 75 reviews as of Thursday afternoon. The film will debut in theaters on May 27.

Cruz returns in the film as Pete Mitchell, a daring Navy pilot codenamed Maverick, who never rose through the ranks because of his tendency to break credibility.

The Associated Press’s Mark Kennedy called the film “a textbook example of how to make a sequel.”

“The film satisfies with one foot in the past, cutting all the touchstones of the first film,” Kennedy said, “and still stands its ground.”

Cash register analysts predict that the film from Paramount Pictures will be one of the biggest box office hits of the summer. The film was scheduled for June 2020, but Paramount has repeatedly postponed its debut during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sean Robbins, chief analyst at BoxOffice Pro, said ticket sales would reach $ 100 million ($ 146 million) over Remembrance Day weekend in the United States and Canada. It would be the most lucrative debut of Cruz’s career.

Critics point out that the film offers exciting flight scenes, emotional history and strong supporting roles, including Miles Teller, who plays Gus’ son, Maverick’s partner, who died in the original 1986 film.

But most of the praise was sprinkled on Cruz.

“It’s a fresh glow in the original … as in the original, from a star who just never stops being a star,” wrote K. Austin Collins of Rolling Stone.

Leah Greenblatt of Entertainment Weekly said the film “belongs to Cruz in almost every scene.”

“At this point in his career, he’s actually playing not so much characters as variations on a theme – a theme perhaps“ The Last Movie Star, ”she said. “And in the air, upstairs, he stands alone.”
