Awesome matchup! I'm afraid Iron Eagle will always play second fiddle to the iconic Top Gun.
Iron Eagle has a cheesy and condescending caricature of Islamic dictatorship, but this pales in comparison to the psuedo "perfume commerical" style-romance spewed out by Tony Scott. While Scott loves his lighting, Iron Eagle director Sidney J. Furie cuts the action to the music. Viscerality drives out realism, but it does not drive out logic, a logic which is absent in the overrated and insensible dogfights in Top Gun. Iron Eagle stands along with Rambo as one of the great action films of the decade, even if both can't be said to be great films in general.
