Tom Cruise Rejected CGI In The Movie (Top Gun: Maverick)

Maverick was strictly against the use of CGI in the production of Top Gun: Maverick.

Cruise is popular in Hollywood as a Daredevil. He has earned the title because of his willingness to perform all his on-screen stunts on his own. He has performed most of his stunts in the MI series as well.

We can easily see Cruise’s decision as a smart one. He has kept in mind the popular public opinion while working on his movie. The watchers of our day are more appreciative for self-done stunts than of the digital effects. They crave for what is real and authentic, not what is created with AI.
