Thirty-six years.

That’s how much time fans have been waiting to see Maverick go to heaven for the sequel Top Gun.

While unchanging devotees may say you can’t improve on the original – it seems the following steps may have just made it if critics ’reviews have anything to go through.

Ahead of the May 26 release of Top Gun: Maverick, aggregator review sites are already showing stratospheric results to continue.

Rotten Tomatoes has a 96 percent positive rating, while Metacritic shows 81 points, indicating “universal recognition”.

In the new edition, Cruz returned to the cockpit in the role of Navy pilot Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, who refuses to be promoted despite 36 years of service.

Also resuming his role as Val Kilmer as Admiral Tom “Iceman” Kazansky, and Miles Teller as newly recruited as Lieutenant Bradley’s “Rooster” Bradshaw, the son of the late Maverick’s best friend Nick “Goose” Bradshaw.

Several of the most respected critics of the film industry have given Maverick a perfect score of five out of five stars, including Empire, The Telegraph and the BBC.

They agreed, saying it surpassed the original because of its vivid episodes and exquisite performances, and Collider critic Ross Banaime even called it “one of the greatest sequels ever made.”

“It’s also hard not to say that it may have some of the most exciting action scenes to ever hit the sky, and gives Cruz one of his best roles, returning to the role that made him a star,” he wrote.

Nicholas Barber of the BBC agreed.
