Very early on, when you start suspecting where "Iron Eagle" (citywide) is heading, you wonder whether it will dare to plunge into all-out ludicrousness. It does, and in doing so achieves a kind of perfection of awfulness that only earnest effort can produce. As a result, "Iron Eagle" has an unintended hilarity that builds and builds. But don't take this as one of those so-bad-it's-good endorsements: The film is a total waste of time.
