The movie might be showing its age, or maybe I'm showing mine. The structure just felt off. The pacing was much too slow until the last quarter. There's something grating about Maverick's character—there's supposed to be, but I couldn't really find anything to like about him. And of course the romance is entirely unnecessary, but that's been a Hollywood problem since long before this movie (and still is).

The year is 1986, the U.S. and Soviet Union are in the midst of a cold war, the threat of a nuclear winter is immanent. Navel War-Fair is the answer for both countries. F-14 Tomcats! Mig 28s! Get inverted and give them the Bird, aka keeping up foreign relations.
