Nazis at the Center of the Earth

Customer Reviews

Bad acting, poor effects, silly dialogue, and a totally improbable scenario here.

I stated it one time before in another review that it really gets to me how people go on about how Asylum makes these bad movies and they aren't worth buying.

Their goal is to destroy all of the world with this space ship they constructed under the ice.

I wasn't expecting much when I rented this DVD at Blockbuster, and I was right not to.

It takes place in Antarctica, but none of the actors look like it is cold outside. CGI is ridiculously cheesy (typical of a SyFy movie), far too many closeups of the actors' faces on the outside shots (clearly an attempt to conceal the fact they are on a movie set) and SPOILER ALERT! the worst "robot Hitler" CGI you can imagine.

Nothing that happened in this movie surprised me one bit, and it is clear to see why Dominique Swain's and Jake Busey's careers circled the drain at least a decade ago.

The only reason why I gave this film TWO stars instead of ONE is because the premise of the film attracted me: Nazis trying to restart the Third Reich from (insert place here).

It's good for a few mindless laughs. Other than that, don't waste your time.

If you are a fan of bad movies like me, and you know the difference between a just plain bad movie and a wonderfully bad movie, then this is a must have. The movie title says it all. I would pair this up with Bubba Ho Tep.

If you can imagine a script written by 6th grade boys for an adult audience then you've seen this movie.
Hitler and fellow Nazis build a massive caverned city with super advanced technology beneath Antarctic ice without being seen and despite all the implausibilities (impossible -80 degree freezing conditions, needing massive resources, not being seen while doing so). Over a period of decades they exist and manage to capture Antarctica researchers to experiment upon. Their goal is to destroy all of the world with this space ship they constructed under the ice. All is foiled by a couple of captive researchers disarming all the Nazis and escaping to freedom. Really bad post edited CGI of a hole in the space ship dooming it to fall.

Really bad effects - ice looks like styrofoam cutouts, toy models for the buildings and vehicles. Equally bad acting and dialogue. Has Jake Busey and a lot of actors experienced in video shorts & TV spots so that should prepare you. Actors could only manage a few words of dialogue at a time while simultaneously forgetting what facial expression was suppose to go with what they said. Cheap props like laser guns with post edited flashes and sounds effects like they were purchased at Toys R'Us.

I watched as much as I could of this dreck, wondering why Jake Busey and Dominique Swain would waste their time working on such nonsense. Bad acting, poor effects, silly dialogue, and a totally improbable scenario here.

I am a big fan of Asylum's super-cheesy dreadful movies. I and my friends love to get together with some beers and popcorn and laugh at the ridiculousness of movies like "Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies," so we were looking forward to this movie featuring zombie Nazis and mecha-Hitler. Sounds like a great time, right?

WRONG. ALL OF THE WRONG. This is a disturbing movie with multiple scenes of sexual violation and explicit and graphic violence. I love the ridiculous, but this isn't even ridiculous. It's just horrific and disgusting and made everyone at movie night feel complicit in the violence. Not even the appearance of mecha-Hitler at the end could save this movie. I am extremely sorry to have ever wasted $4 and 2 hours of my life on this, and would suggest that anyone looking for a cheesy good time stay far, far away from this. You can't laugh at this. You can't make fun of it. You just have to sit there while zombies rape women and Nazis peel people's faces off. If you like that, then I guess this is your movie, but if you're just looking for a fun time with friends, pick literally anything else.

For those that remember "They Saved Hitler's Brain!", this movie is in many ways far superior. Good movie to watch if you just want to sit back and turn your brain to pudding, which I do from time to time. The movie that is far far worse than this one is "Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies".

If you are pre-disposed to think that any story taking place in the center of the Earth is ridiculous, but decide to watch this movie anyhow, then knock yourself out. You will undoubtedly find it ridiculous.

If you are going into this film expecting logic and rationality, then I have to wonder if you read its title.

Perhaps you didn't know it was an Asylum film, and that it showcases all the highlights (or lowlights) of classic Asylum films - bad acting, goofy dialog, unrealistic scripts and plotlines, and generally poor special effects. But, did you read the title? Even if you weren't aware that it was an Asylum film, I'm only going to cut you a little slack if you were disappointed by this flick's silliness - there comes a time when people have to step up to the plate and accept responsibility for their choices. And if you choose a movie called Nazis at the Center of the Earth and then complain about it later, I'm just not feeling it.

I think the film is incredibly faithful to itself. Does it have Nazis in the story? - oh boy, you bet. Does it take place in the center of the Earth? For a substantial part of the film, yes. Voila! here is a perfect example of a film that sets up certain expectations and then meets them with flair! For instance, I've always considered the swastika to be a perfect symbol for evil, but the brains behind this film chose to hang a BACKWARD swastika when The Leader makes his surprise appearance. I mean, how evil is that? A BACKWARD swastika? That's got to be, like, the absolute acme of evil.

And then too, what sort of crazy inspiration led to casting Jake Busey in this film? Who knows what they had to offer up to tempt him away from other projects he had going on.
