As Tom Cruise returns to play one of his most iconic roles, Top Gun: Maverick is a treat for all movie lovers. John Hamm is one of the many new actors who are part of the sequel but not the original, and the actor has now opened up about what he thinks makes the sequel special.
In an interview with PTI, Hamm said that there is always conflict somewhere and that it's at an inflection point right now. The actor said, "But I think that there is something universal about the film that we made. It shows that diligence, hard work, working together and respect for one another on your team can conquer any obstacle."
Hamm further added that he thinks that part of the universality of the message in the movie is what they really hoped to get out to the world and that the movie is not about one country against the other.
Top Gun: Maverick is set over 30 years after the events of the first movie, and features Cruise’s Pete "Maverick" Mitchell now working for the Navy as a test pilot. He is soon asked back to Top Gun to train a select few pilots for a dangerous mission.
"While the filmmaking takes the viewers right into the world of fast-flying jets, the writing is able to give the movie a certain emotional core that cannot be replaced. A fitting sequel to a movie that still lives in our hearts even after over 30 years," reads the movie’s review on OTTplay.
The movie, also starring Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, Monica Barbaro, and a special cameo from Val Kilmer, is now available to watch in theatres near you.
