Iron Eagle is one of those truly terrible movies that ran on constant loop during the late 1980s. The plot for this movie reads like something from John Milius' cut pile. It's got all sorts of incredible 1980s-era tropes going for it, including some pretty prime Reagan-era jingoism. The pentagon apparently refused to back this film, which is why the planes are the wrong color (and type in some instances). Hercule Poirot plays the Saddam/Qaddafi bad guy. ACADEMY AWARD WINNER Lou Gossett validates the Academy's decision with his appearance in the first of four of these movies. Viewed through the modern eye, this movie could probably be described as a bit racist. I loved this movie as a kid. It's a terrible movie. I'm only surprised it was never submitted. https://www.youtube....MHLIi10&t=0m20s
