Storyline

Chappy Sinclair is called to gather together a mixed Soviet/U.S. strike force that will perform a surgical strike on a massively defended nuclear missile site in the Middle East. Chappy finds that getting the Soviet and U.S. Pilots to cooperate is only the most minor of his problems as he discovers someone in the Pentagon is actively sabotaging his mission. As they begin their assault, Chappy finds that a nuclear strike has been ordered should they fail, which will catch his forces on the ground next to ground zero.

Trivia

The death of Doug Masters in this film was retconned in 'Iron Eagle IV' into him ejecting and subsequently being locked away in a Russian prison for years. See more »

Goofs

When Cooper was laying in bed after he was grounded, Bush approached him and saluted him. This is wrong. Bush is a Major and Cooper is a Captain, meaning Bush outranks Cooper, so it should be Cooper saluting Bush. In addition, they were indoors where saluting is prohibited and neither one was standing at the position of attention. See more »

Quotes

Zuyenko: Do you have one of those macho call signs, like "Stud" or "Ace?"
Cooper: Cobra. My callsign's Cobra.
Zuyenko: Ah, the big-headed snake. It suits you.

Where'd the fun go?
30 January 2009 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

What do you do when you're a young director with a hit on your hands? You go off and direct a flop like Superman IV. Then you get talked into doing a needless sequel to your big hit, only a few years ago. Well that's what happened to Sidney J. Furie. In an attempt to tell a more serious, or adult story Furie reject everything about the first film that made it work. Instead he chose to take all the fun out of the film with in the first few minutes of the picture. The first film was more of a Teen movie, it stood out because of that fact. It was fun and energetic, but this one is dry and slow. As a stand alone film, it's sort of boring. As part of the Iron Eagle franchise, it's down right depressing. First it's about the US and Russia teaming up on a mission to stop some terrorist from launching a nuclear bomb, but it never really is clear why one or the other can't just take on the mission by themselves. The characters seem either cardboard flat, or outright dumb. The biggest mistake they make is the under use of Louis Gossett Jr. His character doesn't seem to really have a place, except standing around and barking orders. He never seems to have the same energy as he did in the first film. The ending was fine, if not reminiscent of Star Wars. The contrived Love story didn't work at all for me, it felt like they were again trying to take the story into more adult territory and in that lost the point of what makes the first one so good...
