(Note: this review was originally a reply to Hydra's review, but I decided to post it on its own.)
Keep in mind I only watched this to humor my husband, fully expecting to roll my eyes and scoff the entire time. Instead I found myself highly entertained for the full 90 minutes. Personally I enjoyed the special effects, realistic when appropriate and other times quite lyrical. And the direction overall generated lots of energy. I thought the acting was truly excellent, everyone sold their roles (with the possible exception of the "mad scientist" who did cross over the line to camp.) Special mention must be given to the actress who played the main character, Renata. From a female perspective I found her to be completely believable and sympathetic as a woman of both intelligence and innocence, indoctrinated to prejudice and yet when confronted by a black man for the first time her reaction is a very human mixture of curiosity and compassion. A woman bound by duty to a genetically matched mate, yet longing for a spark of romance from the insensitive clod. A gentle schoolteacher, who, it turns out is fully capable of kick-ass moves when the occasion calls for it.
No, this is not Saving Private Ryan.Read more ›
I must suggest however (and this is just my personal opinion) that this directors cut only be watched by people that have already seen and love the original theatrical cut of the film, why is this? Because, the film really has been considerably changed by the inclusion of these deleted scenes and the new musical scores. Some of the new scenes work great in the film while some others are ether unnecessary or do harm to the flow of the scenes they were fit back into, even though i love this directors cut i have a strong respect to the way the theatrical cut was edited, the flow of the film was so much more balanced. A great example of another film with a theatrical and directors cut with similar levels of changes between the two is "Donnie Darko", If you've seen both versions of that movie then you know what i mean. The directors cut of Donnie Darko complements the theatrical cut, it just shouldn't be watched first, same thing goes for Iron Sky.
So if you're already a fan of Iron Sky then buy the directors cut, however, if you've never seen this movie before then i suggest buying or renting the theatrical cut and see what you think first. It's unfortunate that they didn't just include the theatrical cut in this release.
Additional Extras include on this edition include a 90 Minute Making-of Documentary and a 32 page Concept Art booklet.
The Finnish sci-fi spoof "Iron Sky" is a bold, unapologetic, and absolutely ridiculous bit of nonsense! And I mean this in the most complimentary way possible. If you're going for loopy and outrageous comedy, you can't beat the camptastic premise of this seriously disturbed movie. I understand that such humor isn't for everyone, but I suspect the audience for "Iron Sky" will continue to grow as word of mouth spreads about this nutty endeavor. It's not always a perfect movie, and it may even play a bit too long--but I've always got to commend a movie for serving me a tasty dish that I haven't sampled a hundred times before. This is the definition of a cult movie. Love it or hate it, you won't be apathetic! And "Iron Sky" is nothing if not original.Read more ›

What a Gas! This one had everything except zombies , but didn't need em. Nazis in space, who knew? See it if you can. It's worth a couple of bucks. Great special effects.Published 5 days ago by SEMPER-FI 1106
This was a waste of time and money. I got about 30 minutes into and finally just couldn't take it anymore. I don't mind comedies, but I found nothing amusing about it. Read morePublished 12 days ago by W. Hofmeister
A far, far better motion picture than Tarantino's latest self-indulgent crap. Lots of campy humor, excellent production values, great story line. Read morePublished 23 days ago by D. Russo
This is a movie deliberately made tongue in cheek and not trying to be plausible at all. It has deliberately fake and at times toy looking props and sets. Read morePublished 25 days ago by James N Simpson

The Movie is good, with some subtle and not so subtle social commentary in the film. It digs at both Conservatives and Liberals, (good fun) and keeps one engaged in the action. Read morePublished 1 month ago by frogzilla
The beginning of the movie is fantastic !!! If they would have had better opening music with more bass like Hanzel und Gretyl or Rammstein it really would have been awesome. Read morePublished 3 months ago by The Portuguese Kid
