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

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST DARN MOVIE EVER MADE, I LOVE CHAPPY May 7 2004
By Justy
Format:DVD
Where to begin, when I saw this movie for the first time I just feel in love with Chappy. I have yet to see a movie that even comes close to the quality that this movie embodies. If Chappy were a real person I would marry him and have a life of action and romance in his jet, going really fast all over the world and blowing stuff up. I am not sure if Chappy should be hanging out with little boy though, that could be bad. You know what they say "16 will get you 20". You just have to watch this film, you too will be swept away by the passion that Chappy exudes. If I had a chance to save my daddy from the bad guys I would want Chappy by my side, if not sitting on his lap in the cockpit of his jet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't Chappy an alien? April 21 2004
Format:DVD
I rented this movie by mistake. It turned out to be a pretty good movie anyway. But my friend told me that Chappy sinclair was an alien and that he has a little alien baby. But that crap never happened. But I understand it's not Chappy's fault that I got the wrong movie. But I did like this movie. But it was kind of awesome. But it really is a great airplane movie. But it has so many cool scenes. But I think it's so good I can't even list them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars gold old campy action fun Feb. 10 2004
Format:DVD
I watched Iron Eagle when it came out in the theaters in 1986. I was in college, and it was absurd. A teenager and his buddies with an air reservist steal a couple of F-16's and manage to fly across the atlantic, attack an entire country and recover a single person? Impossible!
But if reality is what you are looking for, get a documentary. This is just good old-fashion fun. The plot has holes, but the action is there. The Good guys are truly white hats and the evil, stereo-typed middle-eastern despot/colonel is dripping with evil.
gotta love the fun,... expecially the dog fighting scenes.

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 16 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

4.0 out of 5 stars Iron Eagle July 30 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is not a bad movie. It has many enjoyable sequences. However, it is not a movie to be taken seriously. The plot evolves around a highly motivated kid trying to save his father who is held captive in a hostile Middle Eastern country. The antics associated with devising the rescue are very sappy. A kid flying a highly sophisticated military fighter then taking on MIG's is not believable. However, the aerial dogfight flying sequences are well done. The 80's rock music is also very good. If you can look beyond the believability of the activity and into the "teamwork & freedom" storyline you will enjoy this movie. A great family action movie with patriotism! I am going to also buy the soundtrack.
