Family guide to new movie releases

Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service on

Published in Entertainment News


Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense action, and some strong language.

What it’s about: The long-awaited sequel to "Top Gun" finds Maverick returning to flight school to teach the new naval aviators a thing or two about flying.

The kid attractor factor: Older kids and teens may be drawn to the high-flying action adventure.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Don't think, just act ... it's necessary for dogfighting in fighter jets, but sometimes, a little rumination on the years is a good thing.

Violence: Some perilous fighter jet action sequences involving fiery crashes and other intense and dangerous situations.


Language: Some strong language, though it's not pervasive.

Sex: An implied sex scene but no nudity.

Drugs: None

Parents’ advisory: This action film is too scary for little kids but a fun adventure for older kids and teens.
