Plot summary

What is Top Gun: Maverick movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Top Gun: Maverick" movie plot summary.

Test pilot Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell (Tom Cruise) has purposely dodged an advancement in rank after thirty-six years of service. One day Maverick is called to be put in charge of training a group of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission under the orders of his fellow naval aviator friend and former rival, Admiral Tom "Iceman" Kazansky, who is the commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet. Among them is Lieutenant Bradley "Rooster" Bradshaw (Miles Teller), the son of Maverick's late best friend and RIO Nick "Goose" Bradshaw.
When Maverick arrives, he is told by his commanding officers that the elite group of Top Gun pilots has been assembled for a special mission against a hostile mountainous nation (unnamed in the film) that has started to make facilities for enriched uranium. The assembled team under Maverick is charged with the duty of preemptively destroying the uranium facility in spite of its highly peculiar location deep inside a mountainous canyon protected by multiple SAM sites surrounding it. Maverick meets the team of elite pilots, who greet him coldly. One of the pilots, Jake "Hangman" Seresin, cynically keeps his distance from the other pilots, including Maverick. There is high tension between Maverick and Rooster when they meet, which at times breaks out into vented hostility and fistfights. When the training begins and the pilots see Maverick's skills while flying during training dogfights, the other pilots begin to re-assess their skepticism about Maverick and some of them grow to appreciate Maverick's talent for air combat.
