Chappy Sinclair (Louis Gosset, Jr.) returns in "Aces: Iron Eagle III". Leaving the hi-tech F-16's of the first 2 flicks behind, Chappy spends his time flying restored WWII fighters in air shows along with wartime veterans of the Luftwaffe (Horst Buckholz), the RAF (Christopher Cazenove) and the Japanese Air Force (Sonny Chiba). He also works with at risk teens nearby a local USAF base. When one of Chappy's friends is shot down and killed, the retired ace realizes that there's a conspiracy linking a drug cartel south of the border and the corrupt officers running the nearby air force base. The cartel is run by an ex-Nazi air ace (Paul Freeman), and essentially occupies a picturesque central-American village and its inhabitants. Gathering the "aces" together, and arming their museum-piece planes with real weapons, Chappy and gang head south where they make short work of the drug cartel's private air force, destroy their ground base and save the town. It's innocuous fun - less Top Gun than an overlong episode of the "A-Team" - though not as much fun as the first flick. The flight scenes are so-so (real aviation fans will quickly realize that Horst Bukholz's german plane gets very little screen time because it's obviously a Mustang; they could have just used a dressed-up T-6, but it would look too closely like the one that's supposed to be Sonny Chiba's
A-6M), but this movie doesn't come out on cable any more so I guess it's worth a rental.

The Iron Eagle series of films was a silly premise, contrived to get the elements of ground combat, air action, and a tacked on mystery plot all in one movie vehicle. Unless you were really into seeing aircraft go thru the motions, it never quite worked. The 3rd in the series, reviewed here, is a thin plot and sop to politics in Latin America. If you like "hardbody women"(as do I), and Rachel McLish in particular, then you may find this pretty hot(there are no nude scenes or even anything approaching that though). She was in great shape and was one of the true "prima donnas" of woman's bodybuilding. So, like her: buy it; else: don't bother..

The four aviators and their planes from the WW2 era -- representing Britain, America, Germany and Japan (actors Christopher Cazenove, Louis Gossett Jr., Horst Buchholz and Sonny Chiba) -- keep their skills intact by performing stunt-flying demonstrations at a local airfield; and then Anna (Ms. Olympia Rachel McLish) entangles them in a mission to Peru to save her village from a drug lord and his thugs. It's a delight to see these historic planes flying in formation. A fine action movie with memorable characters by 007 Director John Glen. Rachel McLish is in amazing shape and her character, Anna, does a large share of the fighting.

Face it, the Iron Eagle movies were B-quality movies, but IE3 was the best of the lot. Any movie that features World War II fighters is sure to attract my interest. The plot of IE3, like the other IE movies, is quite shallow, and sometimes cliche. That still doesn't take anything away from the fine aerial battles between propeller planes and jets. Some folks have found it impossible that the former could take on the latter, but it has happened in real life.

Iron Eagle 3 Aces, stars Louis Gossett Jr. as Air force reserve Col. Charles "Chappy" Sinclair flying geniune WW2 planes in a air show, learns of the death of a friend, a pilot, whose plane wreckage is shown to have drugs. While visiting his late friends home comes by his sister Anna, played by Rachel Mclish, returning home after escaping from captors holding her Peruvian village, Sinclair finds out drugs are being smuggled out of the air base that are tied to some personnel that includes the general(played Mitchell Ryan). Chappy must then lead his fellow aces to go into combat flying WW2 warbirds that include the P 38 lightning, Spitefire Mk.IX, Zero A6M, and Messersmitt 109 G (actually a Mustang D painted over) to liberate Anna's village from evil drug lords. The aerial shots of the classic planes make for exciting action, and a thrilling conclusion.

Iron Eagle III: Aces High is perhaps the last tolerable installment in the series. Starring Sonny Chiba and Fred Dalton Thompson among several other interesting actors, Iron Eagle III has some interesting character elements which weren't present in the other series. For the most part, Iron Eagle III is the most original of the sequels following Iron Eagle, and doesn't feature excessive use of inconsistent stock footage. The story seems to border on comedy at times, but isn't ridiculously insulting to the intelligence like Iron Eagle IV. Watch it if you need a good laugh or need an excuse to have popcorn. Or watch it with Flight of The Intruder and have a double-feature.

The use of vintage aircraft, even those that are made to look like the Jap A6M Zero (T-6) and the Me 109 (P51B), still is awesome to watch. Having flown in the past, I know that the older prop fighters can turn inside a jet fight. It is also harder to hit, when you factor in the difference air speeds. Great cast also helps make this a awesome movie. G.Goff

I am writing this review to warn potential buyers of "Iron Eagle III: Aces" as many secondary sellers here are 'mistaking' releases. New Line Cinema released a version here in the United States that is anamorphic widescreen (16x9) with DTS surround sound. Alliance Atlantis released their own full screen version in Canada with mono sound.

Since the New Line Widescreen version is out-of-print it can only be obtained through secondary sellers here on amazon. The problem is many sellers are listing the Full Screen Canadian release (that has a different bar code/ISBN number mind you) here on the New Line page instead of the proper Alliance Atlantis Aces:Iron Eagle 3 (Ff) page.

I originally bought "Iron Eagle III: Aces" here from a secondary seller and was disappointed to receive the Canadian version that sadly only has a Full Screen transfer (though it does have a nice reversible cover with the title in French). I have no problem with Canadian DVDs as they are playable here in the United States (both are Region 1/NTSC) but I was upset the seller 'mistakenly' listed the wrong release when I was expecting the New Line WIDESCREEN version.

Since this mistake on the sellers part I have obtained the New Line WIDESCREEN release and it is of considerable higher picture quality so I encourage people wanting the WIDESCREEN New Line version to do their research and ask sellers questions before purchasing. Otherwise you might be stuck with the FULL SCREEN Canadian counterpart like I did.
