Top Gun: Maverick - Critics praise 'thrilling' sequel

Cruise reprises his starring role from one of the biggest movies of the 1980s, as hotshot US Navy pilot Maverick.

The Independent called it "as thrilling as blockbusters get", praising it as a "true legacy sequel".

The Telegraph called it "absurdly exciting" and "unquestionably the best studio action film in years".

Jennifer Connolly, Jon Hamm, Monica Barbaro, Danny Ramirez, Val Kilmer, and Ed Harris appear alongside Cruise in the film, which is released in cinemas later this month.
