I came across this meme image and I laughed at it. XD

So I finally got to see it. Looking at so many responses, questions and explanations on why it's so successful, and many hours of research I figured out why the film has done so well. It is a bit complicated so bare with me.



It was good.



I hope I did not get too technical or bury the point in minutia.

It's the story and character that are good. No filler, no lack of consistency between this film and the previous one because someone thought something was broken or concepts were out of date. It's story and character, pure and simple.

Clownfish was reporting on a website making the claim and were adding their two cents. Here's the actual site that made the report: Top Gun: Maverick Has Too Much Tom Cruise

Personally, I just find it funny that someone thinks that Top Gun: Maverick had too much Tom Cruise, you know, considering he's the titular character and the lead of the film. It was almost like CBR was expecting a repeat of how Luke was handled in The Last Jedi. XD

For those not familiar with some of the lingo...Raw gear means Radar Warning Receiver...the tech that detects enemy radar signals.
***Edit...The technology detects and interprets the signals, identifying what the exact threat is depending on the the frequency of the radar band.
