Doug Masters is killed at the very beginning of Iron Eagle II. That means this movie completely ignores his death. This film acknowledges the scene of part two, but instead of Doug dying he ejects from his jet and is captured by the Soviets. See more »


Charles 'Chappy' Sinclair: [delivering his speech to Doug on the tape recorder during the final dogfight] Hey, Doug. Hope you're not too angry or too busy to listen now. If I had known you were alive, nothing in the world could have stopped me from getting you out. All reports said you were dead. If I didn't look farther, it was because it hurt so much to look it all. You know, I remember when you first came to me with your hair-brained scheme to rescue your father. You were a boy with a boy's contempt for the impossible....

Well now then....it all comes down to this...

Doug Masterson has been shot down, but he's not dead as we've been lead to believe, instead he bailed out at the last second and became a POW in Russia. Now, he's out and living the life of a crop duster and possible alcoholic, fun times. Sidney J. Furie returns to finally tell a further adventure tale of Chappy and Doug, but this time with a different actor taking over Doug's role. I always wonder what the original actor was doing that was so much better then this. The two team up, all be it reluctantly on Dougy's part, to try and teach some delinquents how to fly planes...and also fight with some corrupt air force guys. It's not a bad movie, but with is tight bottom of the barrel budget, and some borderline acceptable performance, this one is just barely watchable.
