Very silly, a tad forced in places, and who gives a crap? Pure, B movie fun, as was intended. Amazing effects considering their $10 million budget. This movie was silly, had a message but delivered it with the subtlety of a giant rubber mallet. It was the funnest load of crap I've ever watched. Highly recommended.

(Note: this review was originally a reply to Hydra's review, but I decided to post it on its own.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Accept it for what it is... and it excels at that! June 15, 2012

Face it, this wasn't meant to be the next grade 'A' MEGABLOCKBUSTER. This is a lower budget, independently made 'B' movie.... but what a 'B' movie it is. All things considered, it has great spacial effects, decent actors, a good script.... One of my favorite 'B' Sci Fi films of all time!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for originality and entertainment value December 3, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Many reviewers have referred to this movie as "camp" which I think belittles it unnecessarily. Rocky Horror Picture Show was camp. This is clever. Would I recommend it to absolutely everyone without reservation? No, it depends on your sense of humor. But these days when all Hollywood spews out are screenplays based on a novel, or a comic book, or a sequel or a reboot or a remake, I found this wonderfully refreshing. (When Fifty Shades of Gray comes out we can look forward to a movie that was based on an atrocious novel that was adapted from a fan fiction that was inspired by the equally atrocious Twilight novels...ugh.)

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.

The publicity material for this film might give some the false impression that it is to some extent an adventure movie, if a tongue-in-cheek one. It isn't. "Iron Sky" is black comedy from beginning to end. It has moments of genuine comic genius, though to get to them you have to watch a fair amount of material that is very silly indeed.

Any supporters of the GOP "Tea Party" or fans of Governor Sarah Palin should probably avoid this unless your sense of humour is extremely good at laughing with or at people who are ridiculing things you believe in. And anyone who had assumed, from the way this film is advertised as a battle against a nazi threat, that it would be an opportunity to enjoy a guilt-free heroic battle against a dangerous and utterly evil foe - a bit like a film version of David Drake's novel "Fortress" which was recently republished in "Loose Cannon: The Tom Kelly Novels" may be rather disappointed.

We are told at the beginning of the film that it is 2018. There is a new female US President, (played by Stephanie Paul), who is in the middle of her first term and campaigning for re-election. Stephanie Paul and the producers of the film go out of their way to indicate in almost every possible way other than actually using her name, that the President is based on Sarah Palin. It would probably be fairer to say, on a caricature of Sarah Palin as those who are least fond of the former Alaska governor might see her.

The President has re-started the Apollo programme, and the U.S. astronauts who land on the far side of the moon are horrified to run into a moonbase full of nazis.

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. Combining elements of classic science fiction with mad scientist mayhem with a culture clash comedy with a political satire, the film covers a lot of bases. And for the most part it succeeds as an exuberant slapstick romp. Eschewing all political correctness, "Iron Sky" embraces its lunacy and doesn't hold back. And really, that's all you can ask for.

Set in the not-so-distant future, a very Palin-esque United States President sends a new mission to the moon. What they discover will irrevocably change the future of the world! On the dark side of the moon, an installation of the Reich has been constructed from a renegade band of survivors who fled at the end of the WWII. Under the command of the Moon Fuhrer (Udo Kier), the German scientists discover an essential new power source to fuel their galactic empire and position them to re-take the Earth. Sending a team to retrieve as many cell phones as possible (computers have improved dramatically since the forties!
