3.0 out of 5 stars Mel Brooks did it better, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Iron Sky [DVD] (DVD)
If I'd checked out the reviews for this a bit more thoroughly, I probably wouldn't have bothered with it. I was expecting a bit of comic book style fun, and this you get after a fashion, but they could have left out most of the rather laboured satire. Ironically, the more outrageously some of the characters behave, the more chillingly believable they become. Who knows what goes on in the world's star chambers? Maybe these Finnish guys have got it right, now there's a sobering thought! Visually the C.G.I. is a real feast even if none of it,( like the plot and dialogue,) makes much sense.Space-ships with radial piston engines? great big chains and gears every where doing nothing, etc. 1984 meets steam punk ? It works for Mr del Toro anyway. It's all just a send-up agreed, but it all could have been much better given the resources that were obviously expended on it. So far I'll admit I've been reduced to skipping through it and cherry-picking the visually most exciting bits, so how can I be reviewing a film I've not seen yet? Well, I suppose I'll nerve myself to sit through it all eventually, but regretfully I think this one's going to be another charity shop shelf filler. Come back Mel, all is forgiven. the world was never the same after 'Blazing Saddles'.
