"Welcome to Has-been Aces land"

I always wondered why the hell you make sequels out of movies that weren’t even THAT good to begin with in the first place. That’s what I always asked myself whenever I used to watch this pointless franchise?

You want a review of this? Here’s my review: Its laughable, pointless, plot-less bullshit. Big explosions (The warehouse blowup was quite cool), old planes that can actually fly better than modern jets (!), A church-like bell that falls right on a bad guy riding a Jeep (at least that WAS supposed to be funny), ridiculous plot contrivances and every cliché known to the actual world are here. All brought to you by John Glen, the same guy who gave us the wretched Christopher Columbus: The Discovery, and by Kevin Elders, the guy who wrote the previous two Iron Eagle crap-fests, and would direct later the Dennis Rodman rotten vehicle Simon Sez. Elders hasn’t written anything other than the equally crappy TV movie Jane Doe ever since.

The most saddening thing about this movie is the cast list since you see all the once-great or competent actors plunge themselves into this mess. Notably Louis Gosset Jr. I used to like this guy so much, especially since he single-handedly managed to make an average flick like An Officer and a Gentleman a lot more interesting than what it was and yet he plunged himself down to straight-to-video land shortly after this crap. The other notables are Paul Freeman, Fred Dalton Thompson and Sonny Chiba. Freeman, whom was quite memorable in Raiders of the Lost Ark, appears in this crap, can you believe it? Thompson? Well, at least he went TV on us in Law and Order. Chiba? Who is that guy? Oh yeah, he’s the Bruce Lee wannabe, yeah I remember him…

In the end, word of advice: Don’t waste your time on this, go see Top Gun or Wings or something, anything with wings but this crappy franchise. 0-5
