I’m not exaggerating. You’ll watch it and you’ll leave, you know Tom did it again. He did it again. And honestly, to have a ringside seat is amazing.” Hamilton compared some of the sequences in the film to the canyon scene in Top Gun: MaverickSaying, “There will be some moments in Mission 8 where you have that same kind of ‘I can’t believe I’m seeing this’ experience.
