Top Gun: Maverick has won the top spot on the best movies of 2022 list from Rotten Tomatoes. The film stars Tom Cruise, reprising his role as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell from the 1986 film Top Gun. It released on May 27, 2022, and was a hit with critics and audiences alike.
The film has a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 459 critic reviews. It has become the most positive-rated film from 2022 on the review aggregator website. And it’s not just critics. Top Gun: Maverick has received 99% from over 50,000 votes on Rotten Tomatoes’ fan score. The film was, of course, one of the biggest hits of 2022 as it made a worldwide total of $1.488 billion at the box office.
The film, of course, has a nostalgia factor, and it contained a lot of action which filmgoers might have missed seeing on the big screen. Cruise is known for doing dangerous stunts, and many action film lovers were likely pleased to see him pulling off dangerous stunts in Top Gun: Maverick.
