3.0 out of 5 stars Nazi, but nothing nasty, 4 July 2012
This review is from: Iron Sky (Blu-ray + Digital Copy) (Blu-ray)
Where do you begin?! There are times when the production betrays its `participatory cinema' origins and lurches crazily from one impressive set piece to another with only the merest wisp of cohesive plotting, but there's much to enjoy. It's a giddy, violent, Steampunk fever-dream of a film, with eye-sizzling visuals and imaginative direction. It also manages, mostly, to be funny in the right places, mocking everyone on all sides at any given moment and providing several knowing winks to other films.
Some nice performances help jolly the clunkier bits of dialogue along, with the four leading actors all playing their parts to the hilt: Julia Dietze's glamorous and plucky heroine, Christopher Kirby's perpetually put-upon black astronaut, Götz Otto's scenery-chewing wannabe Führer and Peta Sergeant playing a crazed spin doctor halfway between that chap in Downfall (the name escapes me; Adolf something-or-other) and Diana from the Eighties version of V.
Certainly there were a few points that didn't make any sense, even within the film's insane internal logic, but when you're dealing with a film about Nazi descendants leaving their secret Moon base in flying saucers to invade Earth in the year 2018, with a Wagnerian soundtrack by Laibach... you have to just hang your brain cells by the door and sit back for a couple of hours.
