Top Gun Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Top Gun soars onto Blu-ray in a 1080p, 2.35:1 transfer that is of very good, but not exceptional, quality. Detail, clarity, and color is obviously better than any home video presentation I've seen yet. I never owned Top Gun on DVD as I held onto a nice LaserDisc edition that sported a widescreen transfer and a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack, but this image is vastly superior to that and shows considerable detail and clarity that made much of the movie like seeing it for the first time. I never noticed the beads of sweat on the pilot's faces at the beginning of the movie, for example, and we can see the lines in the finely-pressed uniforms and read the instrument panels inside the fighter jets. However, there is a lack of clarity and sharpness in these scenes as well. The entire first sequence of the movie, both on board the aircraft carrier and in the air, is rather drab. The image is a just a bit dark in both the cockpit and in Stinger's office afterwards. In fact, much of the semi-dark, perhaps better considered hazy, nature of many shots in the movie obscures a bit of detail, but this Blu-ray does a fine job of rendering its image rather well nevertheless. Flesh tones can appear pink or red on occasion. Softness is never much of an issue except in flat, nearly mono-color backgrounds, but foreground detail is generally strong and lifelike. The disc does do justice to the amazing aerial combat sequences, notably the first one where cameras are placed on the fuselage or wings of the jets and the resulting imagery shows some amazing shots that, frankly, don't sparkle, but manage to wow viewers nevertheless with their impressive visuals. The print exhibits some minor black and white pops and speckles and dirt throughout. Black levels are solid but unspectacular, though there aren't many scenes that call for deep, dark blacks anyway. I did note some pixelation in one of the shots of the sky in an aerial sequence. While Top Gun isn't as spiffy as I had hoped, the transfer is a generally impressive one that is as a remarkable leap in quality from my old standby LaserDisc edition.

Top Gun Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Paramount sends Top Gun to Blu-ray with two lossless audio options: a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track as well as a DTS-HD MA 6.1 mix. I screened the film with the DTS track to take advantage of the added channel, and was immediately impressed with the results. Right from the get-go, we hear the film's title sequence theme mixed with a marvelous heavy breeze that blows across the flight deck as the sound of jet engines heating up play alongside. Then, as radio and flight deck chatter crop up in the rear channels, we're instantly transported to the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. All of a sudden, the jet's engines ignite; the $30 million machine shoots off into the sky with the push of jet engine propulsion and the aid of a slingshot, and Kenny Loggin's "Danger Zone" instantly ignites your speakers on-fire for a moment that had me grinning into overdrive. When Maverick, Goose, Cougar, and Merlin engage the MiGs at the beginning of the film, there is an awesome sense of wonder in the sonic department as the fighters fly all around the listening area seamlessly. Bass rattles your chest form both the roar of the jet engines and the pulsating music that accompanies the drama that unfolds after the confrontation. Imaging is excellent and the sounds of jet fighters literally swarm your listening area and flow from one speaker to the next in an effortless symphony of modern technological delight. Surrounds are active for the entirety of the movie, demonstrating the track's superiority from both the more mundane (including the "live" performance of "Lost That Lovin' Feeling," "Lead Me On" in chapter four, and "Playing With the Boys" in the famous volleyball scene) and to the extraordinary, where we experience the feel of having jet fighters encircle and pass through the media room, and the experience is heightened when machine gun fire penetrates the skies and shoots across the sky in the movie and our room at home in the final battle of the movie. While Top Gun's lossless tracks lack the sparkle and definition of the modern action movie soundtrack, the source material is exquisitely reproduced here and is the best you'll ever hear the movie sound.
