Top Gun: Maverick may seem to be crushing it with audiences, but Mickey Rourke has some unsettling things to say about Tom Cruise’s acting

Maverick is the Top GunAll expectations were blown awayIt was not only a box-office success, but an absolute smash. The film has earned over $1 billion worldwide at the box office. Tom Cruise is back at the top of the list as one of Hollywood’s biggest movie starsIn the world. However, one former Academy Award nominee is far from impressed and Mickey Rourke isn’t hiding how he feels.

Appearing On Piers Morgan UncensoredMickey Rourke was then asked his opinion about the subject. Maverick is the Top Gun’s current success and the Iron Man 2Star, who previously criticized Marvel movies for what he also perceives as a lack of acting, made it clear that he’s not a Tom Cruise fan. He called the actor “irrelevant” and said that Cruise isn’t the sort of actor he would aspire to be. Rourke said…

That doesn’t mean shit to me. The guy’s been doing the same effing part for 35 years. That earned me no respect. Really. I don’t care about money and power. I care about when I watch Al Pacino work and Chris Walken and DeNiro’s early work. Richard Harris’ work. Ray Winstone’s work. That’s the kind of actor I want to be… like Brando back in the day. There were many men who tried to act as actors but failed.

It’s a criticism that has been said about a lot of actors, not just Tom Cruise, that they don’t ReallyAct in the movies but act as themselves or play slightly different characters. It’s not exactly a stretch to say that Tom Cruise often plays characters that are similar. Cruise can be criticized for this. Other actors like Daniel Day Lewis are also available. Gary Oldman is well-known for his ability to transform into many different charactersYou can find many other movies here

You can also criticize the audience. They clearly love to see Cruise play these characters. When Cruise does branch out and play more diverse sorts of roles, and he certainly has done that, they don’t always get the recognition of the audience. Studios are less likely to spend money on movies that have Tom Cruise playing roles outside of the action hero if those roles don’t make money.

Certainly, we’ll be see Tom Cruise play the “same role”He will do it again in the months to come, just as he did previously A pair of Mission: ImpossibleMovies on the Way so he’ll be playing literally the same role he has played a half dozen times before. After that, we’ll have to see. It is likely that action movie roles will begin to slow down. Cruise is now 60-years old, but it doesn’t seem likely Tom Cruise will retire from acting when that happens, so maybe we will start to see a more diverse set of performances from him. It might be enough to convince the doubters.
