Tom Cruise is a talented actor, and his latest movie is proof. Top Gun: Maverick opened with $126 million at the box office, making it his best opening weekend ever. While his star power can help a movie experience unimaginable commercial success, sometimes his charm isn’t enough to save a film and its script.
