Product Description

Amazon.ca

Short of Top Gun, this could be the definitive boys movie of the 1980s. An 18-year-old (Jason Gedrick) gets instruction from an old vet (Louis Gossett Jr.) in how to fly an F-16 jet and kick butt in the Middle East, all while listening to his Walkman and--oh, yeah--saving his father from terrorist clutches. Gossett wears his tough-love face while the kids run rampant. Speaking of kids, young guys must like this comic-book movie, as its success spawned three sequels. But watch out for the Reagan-era jingoism and political reductiveness. --Tom Keogh

3.0 out of 5 stars I WANT to hate this movie... Jan. 8 2004
Format:DVD
But how can I, a child of the 80's, hate this ultimate 'boys movie'?
At the time, it made me want to strap myself into the cockpit of an F-16 and go bomb some terrorist country. I found Libya on the map. They seemed like some onery folk at the time. I was ready to drop some hellfire on them 'camel jockeys'.
But I could never get a hold of an F-16.
But judging by some of the reviews here, some lucky peepsqueaks DID manage to get F-16's. So many youths cite this piece of dreck as the reason they joined the airforce and are now doing the will of a commander-in-chief who probably goes back to his ranch, closes the door, and puts the 'Iron Eagle' DVD on!!
Ultimate boys movie indeed.
This doesn't change the fact that 'Iron Eagle' is unabashedly racist. It was mostly filmed in Israel with the IDF and Israeli government providing all the fighter jets AND pilots along with the scenery. All they asked for in return was that the villains be (nameless, faceless, dehumanized) 'Arabs' from a fictional (generic) Arab 'terrorist country'. This demonization of an entire people was (and is) an Israeli government PR campaign to get the American public to see the 'plight of the Jewish people' as they 'struggle' against the 'evil Arab terrorists'.
I would hope the producers of 'Iron Eagle' were duped into going along with this. Because other than that, it is a pretty fine movie. Unlike a lot of 80's action-movie dreck, 'Iron Eagle' actually has likeable characters. Louis Gosset Jr. delivers a fine performance as the 'tough but fair' Colonel 'Chappy' Sinclaire. The action sequences rival and sometimes better the ones in 'Top Gun'. Plus, there is no sappy romance sub-plot to drag this puppy down. This movie is purely a boys film.
So if you can turn your brain (and your conscience) off for an hour and 20 minutes, get a hold of 'Iron Eagle'. But watch out for the sequels. They're bad. Really bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best film in the series Dec 15 2003
Format:DVD
The first time I saw this I must have been about 12 or 13 and I thought it was BETTER than Top Gun in some aspects. The plot was extremely far fetched an 18 year old rescues his father from some un-named "Middle Eastern" country with the help of a retired Air Force Col. and his friends Btw how the hell can one kid have the whole base wired for his own personel needs? The acting wasn't that bad Lou Gossett, Jr was ace as retired AF Col. Charles "Chappy" Sinclair Jason Gedrick was very good as Doug "I got the whole god dam base wired" Masters (Too bad Doug got blown out of the sky in IE II) and the Minister of Defense played by David Suchet aka Poirot was great as the "bad guy" of the un-named Middle Eastern country. I liked this the most out of ALL the movies that were made. I got it dirt cheap so I am going to complain about the lack of any extras it was a good movie in its time and I enjoyed it for what it was even if it was fantasy. Just stay FAR AWAY as possible from the sequels esp II & IV III I don't remember too much about as I haven"t seen it in YEARS. The original Iron Eagle gets 4 and a half stars from me despite its extremely far fetched plot. The score for this film was excellent I liked it and the music was great too

By Euro
Format:DVD
I checked the ... DVD special list to see what refuse the movie studios are trying to unload.
My suspicions were affirmed with the listing of this title -- Iron Eagle. ... How many of us were inspired to eventually pilot a tie-fighter or x-wing after watching Star Wars? And, anyone removed from the experience of working in the REAL U.S. Air Force can forgive the gross oversight and disregard for detail that this film shames upon the U.S. armed forces. We all must overlook the details in most movies.
However, this inane and unplausible plot is not saved by the thrill of a boy hopping in a slick military plane and the ensuing "save the world" 8-year-old fantasy. The storyline would make much more sense if the hero/child Doug Masters actually were a 5-year-old boy who wandered away from his nanny and happened upon an Air Force jet. Then, the film could be enjoyed for its ridiculousness.
The memory of seeing repeated glimpses of this movie repeated on HBO 18 years ago reminds me of how well this film captured the "Worst Movie Ever" in my book. There are worse movies out there, but this one is insidiously hyped up enough to make a fool out of you too to ever actually watch it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inferior but unforgettable air war flick Dec 9 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Jason Gedrick is Doug Masters, teen-pilot ace, son of a USAF fighter pilot, AF academy hopeful and high-school failure. Doug is normally not that responsible a kid (mostly when tooling around in low-level air races in the family Cessna), but is forced to mature when his father is shot down and taken prisoner over an unnamed mideastern country. A naturally gifted pilot, Doug has managed to cajole his father into taking him on some practice flights in the past, as well as worming his way into the base's F-16 simulator. Now with the help of "Chappy" Sinclair (Louis Gosset Jr.), a crusty but not rusty reserve fighter pilot, and some of Doug's friends - a click of army-brat and aviation enthusiast-teens who populate the unnamed desert air force base where Doug's father stages - the younger Masters plans an impossible rescue. Together with Chappie, Doug seizes a pair of twin-seat F-16's, loads them up to maximum payload, and flies into hostile territory.
This movie came out in late 1985 and would have been toast had it appeared about six months later when "Top Gun" was released.
