Editorial Reviews

High-flying, rapid-fire adventure in the tradition of Top Gun starring Louis Gossett, Jr. (Academy Award(r) winning Best Supporting Actor, An Officer And A Gentleman, 1982) and Jason Gedrick (TV's Murder One). Air Force pilot Col. Ted Masters (Tim Thomerson) is shot down over a hostile Middle EasternCounty and taken prisoner. The U.S. Government is powerless to negotiate his release. With time quickly running out, Masters' teenage son Doug (Gedrick) takes bold action. He enlists the aid of a tough-as-nails reserve officer (Gossett) and they devise a daring military rescue mission to storm the skies, exact vengeance on the evil captors, and free Doug's Father. Powered by dynamite aerial dogfight sequences, a soaring rock soundtrack and thrilling, edge-of-your-seat action.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Movie Change My Life !! June 15, 2003
When I was 6 years old, my father give this movie that recorded from TV in 1989. That time I'm kindergarden boy. but this movie very huge, huge impact in my life. This movie treat war story. So some people may think this stuff feel very cruel. But that's wrong! this movie treat humanism like father & son. Doug rescue Father in enemy line. So this every scenes that Doug's try try so hard behave is so moved to me. now I'm 21 years old. and now I'm "South Korea Airforce Academy" Student. In the end dream come true.Like Doug Masters. So I'm very proud about me and this movie. Someday I'll drive F-16. This movie's give me a my dream. Change My Life~ Doug & Father's meet scene is never forget it..thorough all my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars gold old campy action fun February 10, 2004
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, horrible DVD February 21, 2008
I was only 12-years-old when I saw Iron Eagle with my dad, who passed away 5 years ago, and it's one of the finest memories I'll ever have. It was an exciting movie, and I still love it to this day even if it's unrealistic. For people who moan and groan about movies all the time for not being plausible, especially movie critics, I say "just grow up!" Movies are supposed to be about entertainment. Leave it to the movies based on true stories to be the so-called plausible ones.

The reason I gave this review a 1-star rating is not because of the movie itself, but because of the horrible DVD. It's the only one available as far as I know here in the U.S. It's in "full screen" format, which means edited for old televisions and not in its original widescreen format. That, of course, means a lot of the picture is cut off. The so-called 5.1 surround sound is just as bad, with little detectable sound from separate audio channels. It's old, outdated, and is in serious need of a brand new DVD and hopefully Blu-Ray version sometime soon.

Little Doug Masters (Jason Gedrick) has an Air Force pilot for a father, an incredibly irresponsible father who has been allowing him to fly training missions since, evidently, Doug hit puberty. The kid has more simulator time than anyone on base (wherever that may be). He's so into flying that he has a club of fellow high school aviators - officers' kids - who take their personal planes out on the weekends for fun...and to race paint-huffing morons on dirt-bikes through treacherous mountains. He's a whiz at flying (but not acting). Doug's happy little world halts when he finds out that not only did his application to the Air Force Academy get denied, but his father was also shot down, captured, and scheduled for a hanging in an undisclosed Middle Eastern country.

Doug enlists the help of his flying buddies (two of which are Styles from Teen Wolf and the gay dude from Revenge of the Nerds) to hatch a rescue plan. Along the way he manages to get the help of a retired Air Force Colonel named Chappy Sinclair (Louis Gossett Jr.) who just happens to have flown with Doug's father. After the two find out that the U.S. government has their hands tied in red tape, Col. Chappy decides to put a plan into action. He'll require the considerable talents, connections, and tricks of each member of the flight club. They'll have to steal maps, get top secret armament information of the enemies, hack into government computers to get F16s with enough ammo (and flight plans) to take on an entire Arab country, and exploit every moron the Air Force could possible assemble on one facility in order to save Doug's father.

After all the training, the shenanigans, and the ubiquitous 80s montage in which Louis Gossett Jr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 80s Tribute Film October 29, 2000
By A Customer
"Iron Eagle" is best described as your typical 1980s, feel-good, pro-American, rock and roll action movie. Required viewing material for those of us still on the 80s hype. While completely unrealistic, anyone who ever grew up in the Reagan-era has to love this film and its simple premise. "Iron Eagle" has everything the 80s fanatic could want: a soundtrack including Adrenalin (Road of The Gypsy), Eric Martin (Eyes of The World), Dio (Hide In The Rainbow), Twisted Sister (We're Not Gonna Take It), and Queen (One Vision); a heavy, pro-American slant; and how could we forget, actors like David Suchet and Louis Gossett. While not up to the same high-budget par as its contemporary, "Top Gun", this is still a great film. Your plot is simple: imaginary Mediterranean rouge state shoots down one of our pilots, and in return, two American rouge pilots steal F-16Bs and bomb the living daylights out of the enemy. It's a great movie to watch as a "I remember when" type of film, especially since "Iron Eagle" has all the undertones of the perpetual international crisis faced by the US during the time period.
