Tom Cruise Is The Greatest Action Movie Star Ever

Top Gun: Maverick was released two weeks ago and has been enjoying great success both critically and commercially.

The film currently has a 97% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes and has made over US$500million so far.

It also broke a US box office record when ticket sales only fell 32 per cent from its debut

the smallest week-to-week decline ever for a movie with a US$100 million opening weekend.

This is a colossal achievement for a non-comic book or huge franchise movie.

Needless to say, Top Gun: Maverick is a phenomenon but a movie like

this could only have happened thanks to the actor Tom Cruise’s unrivalled passion for Top Gun.

The movie made minimal use of green-screen or CGI trickery.

Cruise made it clear that he would only reprise his role as Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell if real fighter jets were used in the sequel.
