The Movie Series That Wouldn't Die

"whomever thought of having sequels to Iron Eagle must be shot. In this case once was enough. Iron Eagle was a good movie to watch. Even though it is unrealistic, it is still entertaining. Iron Eagle II has a senseless plot and can be used to as a cure to insomnia. I didn't even bother to watch Iron Eagle III, but from looking at the R rating, I assume it's more violent than the past 2 movies. Well, Iron Eagle IV is probably the most inane sequel. Lou Gossett Jr. returns as the always delightful "Chappy" Sinclair. Another Jason returns to fill the role of Doug Masters (Canadian Jason Cadieux, who looks just like Jason Gedrick from the first Iron Eagle). But wait(Here comes a possible spoiler).....Wasn't Doug killed in Iron Eagle II? The writers must've been desprate for a story so they revived Doug Masters by saying he was a prisoner of the Russians. This movie was the cheapest done of all the Iron Eagle films. Why do movie makers find it neccessary to make sequels to unappealing movies? (ex. Police Academy movies). I have always liked Gossett Jr.'s work in these films. He was the only one holding this turkey together. Let's hope this was the last of the Iron Eagle sequels. let it rest in peace."

"Iron eagle was the definitive 80s movie -why did they have to ruin it by making 3 sequels that just seem to get worse and worse and cheaper as they go along. Iron eagle two has one of the lamest plots ive seen in my life -Iron eagle three i cant even remember what happened it was so boring and when i tried to watch iron eagle 4 it took me 6 hours because i had to take breaks from the depressive reality of how such a good film could spawn this giant fat failure - I mean what is going on when lou gosset jr has to stoop so low as to star in 4 of these films? -they must have set aside half of the 50 quid budget just to pay him.The effects are continually repeated and you dont actually see any dogfights-just the same gun firing and missile firing from Iron eagle 1 .Then without the missile actually hitting the aircraft-it blows up randomly. I bet there arent over 30 seconds of actual plane footage in the whole series!! -The soundtrack remastered into dolby digital in iron eagle 1 is mono with some random plane sounds blatantly added on just so that some poor guy might see the dolby logo and think some work went into this film. you would get more enjoyment and more dogfighting action out of staring at an raf recruitment poster for a few hours."
They shoulda never gave you ------ money!

"What we have here in Iron Eagle 4 is a very good example of a series of films going far beyond what they ever should have. From reading through some other reviews it appears the first was a pretty solid flick rapidly on the downward spiral on the sequel came out. Typically tat is nothing something that would ever scare us away. In fact we look for actions films that have plenty of follow ups knowing all the b they would have to provide. Sprinkle in the fact that this is somewhat of a b Top Gun then how could it possibly not be hilarious? Well it's simple, it because it was beyond boring. Past the first 15 minutes Iron Eagle 4 fell apart with no chance of redemption.

It stars great actor/B movie veteran Louis Gossett Jr. as Chappy Sinclair (which happens to be a fantastic B name). Chappy aka I ain't that boy's pappy winds up inheriting a gang of loser kids that he's looking to mold for an upcoming pilot competition. Apparently all these delinquents are pilots yet can't function in normal society. So with his back against the wall he turns to the only man that can assist him in this rehabilitation; his trailer park dwelling protege Doug Masters. Once he talks Doug into getting off his couch they get to work on the kids and wind up uncovering some underground toxic waste dealers and attempt to finish them.

Overall Iron Eagle 4 is just plain terrible with nothing to offer. It walked that line of B and boring and unfortunately crossed over to the dark side very quickly. See with a great B flick it won't have those lulls where you lose all interest. Sure it will always have terrible acting and an absurd plot, but that's what makes them so good. There has to be the laugh factor where the movie is pulling out all the stops with explosions, fight scenes, and all around tough guy antics to compensate for the fact it's an awful movie. There's an art to this people and this one just didn't have it."

"Really? I mean, Really? This is one of the worst movies of all-time. Please don't waste your time with this one. Weekend at Bernies had a better plot than this excuse for a movie."
