Today we "honor" one craptastic turd-sandwich of a flying move, Iron Eagle. It stars Jason Gedrick as the one-dimensional cocky youth and Academy Award winner Louis Gossett Jr. who was mis-cast as the one decent actor in the film.
There are some good flying sequences, but not much of a plot or decent actors to hold this movie together. Basically, the kid’s dad is kidnapped by terrorists. Gedrick and Gossett’s characters steal a couple of F-16’s, then blow up some stuff and somehow that helps.
Iron Eagle was released today, 23 years ago, and somehow spawned three humdrum sequels. Louis Gossett Jr. is in EVERY SINGLE SEQUEL. Why does he afflict himself with this series?
