Sure, it's cheesy by today's standards, but Iron Eagle was one of my favorite movies as a kid when it first came out. While reading Ernest Cline's latest book, Armada, I was reminded of how much I enjoyed it, and I thought I would share it with my kids, who are now about the same age as I was when I first saw the movie.
Unfortunately, the version of the movie that Amazon streams has a flaw with the audio encoding (thus the reason for only 3 stars). I purchased the HD version and watched it streamed via the Roku app on a 1080p / 5.1 home theater system. The picture quality was great, but the sound quality was terrible. It sounded as if some of the audio channels were out of phase with the others, as you could hear the dialog coming from separate speakers at a slightly different time (within milliseconds), but it was just enough to make the dialog very difficult to understand. In addition, the dialog seemed muffled compared to the rest of the audio. I've never had this problem before on any other 5.1 movie that I've streamed to the same home theater system, and I even tried cycling the power to everything and rebooting the Roku, with no success, so I'm convinced the flaw is in the encoding of the movie itself. (I have not yet tried watching the movie using the 2-channel audio stream, so I cannot confirm if it has a similar problem.)
Update 8/19/2015 - So I have to retract what I said before about the poor 5.1 audio encoding of this movie and update my overall rating. After posting my original review, I watched another movie streamed by Amazon and noticed the same exact problem. After doing some investigation, I discovered that my kids inadvertently changed some settings on my home theater system, which was causing the audio problem I was having. I've since corrected the settings, and the movie plays back just fine now.
