One of the best and funniest movies I've seen in a long time. I laughed from start to finish and the characters were brilliant. Effects were very impressive and although it was a spoof, comedy, parody it did have some deep moments. Reminded me of a modern Dr Strangelove. Highly recommended.

If you demand high production values on the Prometheus scale of film making, look away now. I saw this at the cinema knowing full well that this was done on a vastly reduced budget. It has some genuinely funny moments and the people involved in the CGI did a great job. An underground slowburner that deserves to be a future B movie classic.

Brilliant Film. I helped with the crowd funding and was seriously impressed with the results.
You honestly can't go wrong with Diesel-Punk-esque Nazis on the moon. Lots of action and a little light-hearted humour too.

Worth seeing now more than ever, as a sequel is currently in production featuring Nazi Dinosaurs in the Hollow Earth. Seig Heil, T-Rex.

This is without doubt one of the most awesome movies ever made!! A fantastic and blindingly original story line like nothing you have seen before, the Nazis are back as the major villains who plan to destroy the earth, the effects are spot on and very cool with giant Nazi battle ships and moon bases and flying saucers, the cast is very good too and the costumes are great, this movie oozes so much cool its unbelievable, this is sure to be a cult classic in no time, it may not be everyones cup of tea so make sure you know what your getting into, make sure you check this out money well spent!! Gem of a movie!!!

Loved the film, but this DVD was rushed to release by Revolver, the UK distributor for Iron Sky, who have been disavowed and criticised by the producers. It is a rush job and does not contain any of the bonus material which the proper dvd release will contain. Buy this directly from the film producers or one of the continental Amazon sites (e.g. amazon.de) if you want the proper dvd. For more info, read: [...]

After finding the trailer online I just had to buy this movie. It was incredible. I would have liked more "war' but still. Those crazy nazi's were awesome. I spent most of the film with my mouth wide open in pleasant surprise. I would fully recommend this film. It's one that you can pass on to your friends, your boss, your enemy. It's just amazing.

The plot for Iron Sky is so ridiculous that it barely stands scrutiny, and that’s this entertaining film’s great strength. The notion of a Nazi base on the dark side of the moon is flat-out daft so the film-makers play up that sense of silliness. Their stormtroopers wear WW2-style gas masks, not NASA-type spacesuits. The invasion fleet comprises vast zeppelin blimps, tugging asteroids behind them. There’s a mad scientist, an ineffective fuhrer, and an Ayryan couple whose cheekbones could slice ice and who are ready to repopulate the earth when they’ve taken control of it and ‘brought peace’ to the planet.

Like Dark Star and Dr Strangelove before it, Iron Sky skips over plot holes and improbabilities and clips along at a romping pace, poking fun at every authority – not just the Nazis in space but the UN back on earth and the vote-chasing desperation of an American president. Nothing is too absurd or implausible. The characters are all cariacatures, from the female spin-doctor who does a fair impression of Hitler’s bunker speech in Downfall and somehow ends up at the helm of an American spaceship, to thye hero – a loudmouth blundering black guy whose role in a moon landing was to look good in front of the cameras.
Underneath all the visual gags and overall flippancy, there is a far darker side to this film, however. Just watch how easily the US forces deploy nuclear weapons. Note that all the international spacecraft violate the most basic treay about armaments. Delight in how North Korea immediately claim responsibility for an act of militaristic outrage. And pay particular attention to the very end of the film, when squabbling breaks out over undiscovered resources…

Silly it may be, but satire has long been used to tell uncomfortable truths. And this is a jolly entertaining movie to (jack)boot.
7/10

UK - Iron Sky Dictators Cut
Another Good quality black matte finish (non streaky). Heavy embossed title (you can feel the embossing on this) in a spot gloss finish. Very nice.
I'll add, the finish on this steel is amazingly good. The paint job has a sheen to it. There's no streaks at all, not a one. It doesn't feel like a matte varnish, it feels like some gloss is on it, but it's not glossy, except for the title.

A very very nice effort from 4 digital media.

If such a quick release date seems too good to be true, it probably is! I pre-ordered this item on Blu-ray, but have since cancelled upon discovering a few facts and their repercussions. It is a rushed release by the film's UK distributor and will contain none of the the material that it's makers intended, who do NOT support the distributor's release strategy and have not yet even received money owed to them either. The creators would fight this, but they want you to still be able to have access to the film. They would like to give you, the buyer and fan, more than the distributor has. The release date of this product is also the reason why larger chain cinemas have stated that they are not showing the film. So it's about a lot more than just missing extras! A crowd sourced/funded film and a team that have put their hearts and souls into it for 6 years, as well as those who have waited and supported all that time, deserve more than this version.
