Excerpt: Space Nazis... Yup. And I actually walked into this with good expectations. I was convinced that this was going to be a movie that was so bad that it would become good. I was wrong. It was so bad that, that was the end of it and nothing changed. Quick recap: Neo-Nazis on the moon decide to invade earth (of course) for no reason, skip the entire rest of the world (of course), go straight to America (of course), where Sarah Palin is president (*facepalm*).
Summary: I can't call Iron Sky a "good" movie in the sense of the word, but I can call it a very fun movie. Moon Nazis launching an space zeppelin attack against Sarah Palin and her secret space weapon? This is the most off-the-wall movie of 2012 (thus far) a crazy, bizarre film that is so bad its good.
Excerpt: An enclave of the German reich of WWII entrenched on the dark side of the moon decide to reclaim the Earth after discovering mobile phone technology in the hands of a PR stunt moon landing. I saw the trailers for this film a few years ago now and the whole idea of Independence Day with Nazis seemed like a dream come true. Unfortunately, this independent film was clearly desperate for financial backing and made the appropriate compromises to get it.
Summary: Comedy about Nazis invading earth from moon. Sounds pretty nice, at least ok. Well, it isnt. At least it isnt for me. One thing that annoys me not just in this one but in many modern sf films is that they are uglier than old star wars. They look like computer games. Than we have story that isnt well done , i would say they were lazy. And than we have usual political jokes that are completely forced and also pretty stupid.
Conclusion: What an exceptional film, total mickey take from scene one to the end. Doesn't take itself seriously at all and had me laughing through the whole film. Definately a cult classic in the making!
Conclusion: I actually quite liked this strange story of Nazi's hiding on the moon, planning their big come back. There was fun, silliness, good effects and a funny script. It didnt take itself seriously (how could it) and seemed to enjoy itself on the road to an ok film. The actors were good. I liked the fact that they actually spoke German (with subtitles) rather dodgy german/english accents. American astronaut character (washington) was only a minor character in the movie.
