Squire Technologies feels the need… the need for speed

Long have we waited to fly again. It’s been 36 years since the original Top Gun movie was released, since then it became a classic and a must-watch for any movie fan. The wait is now over, the runway cleared, and the engines on full throttle. The highly anticipated sequel is now airborne.

The Squire Technologies team was given a green light, and everyone gathered for a mission brief. The mission? Find the fastest possible flight path to the nearest cinema available, which for us at Squire is a 1930’s picture house that has been dubbed the third best independent cinema in the UK. With drinks and popcorn in hand, everyone was ready for a private viewing of Top Gun Maverick.

From the opening shots of aircraft flybys to the Top Gun anthem, Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins, not much has changed in the Top Gun world. The high speeds, crazy manoeuvres, intense G-forces and of course the signature aviators are still present in the movie, but the intensity of the cinematography takes the original to the next level.

People often do subtle eye rolls when they hear about Tom Cruise and his determination to do his own stunts, but this time he goes off the charts. He worked closely with his co-stars to do intense training in preparation to fly in these incredible machines themselves and use as little or no CGI as possible… and it pays off.

The essence of the original was captured and built upon in this stunning sequel, to the point that many people who have watched it are sure that this will become the next must-watch classic!

After the exhilarating experience that was Top Gun Maverick, the Squire team are still flying high and are ready to take on the world.
