Iron Eagle


  IRON EAGLE—–dumbass Reagan Era hoorah about fighter planes over Libya (little did we know ), starring the blood pressure of Louis Gossett Jr.  After hauling in $24,000,000 just in the States and half again as much from video sales (it cost $18,000,000), it launched three sequels, none of which I felt impelled by patriotism to suffer.  This was bad enough, a doofus bunch of junk from the Top Gun school of bull.

Directed by Sidney J. Furie, zooming through bad ideas for 117 minutes.  The swell ‘allies’ of the Israeli Air Force provided the jets. Seems like the least they could do.  Movies like this do not advance the mythical ‘Mid East Peace Process’.


Guilty by latitude
