4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun film that entertains admirably!, 29 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Iron Sky [DVD] (DVD)
With Mrs Milton away for the evening, I had free reign in my Penthouse of Horror to do whatever I wanted... I decided to go for a three movie marathon centring on everyone's favourite villains, the Nazis!
First up for me was Iron Sky, a German-Finnish co-production, described as a "dark science fiction comedy" which was filmed in Australia!

It's fair to say that I didn't sit down to watch this film with high expectations. However, on viewing, I was pleasantly surprised. With a reported budget of a little over £6million, the end product is incredibly well-polished. That's not to say the movie is perfect, far from it, in fact. As was to be expected, Iron Sky is incredibly reliant on CGI but with a movie concerned with a Nazi invasion from the dark side of the moon, it would have been foolish to hope for anything else!

There are some great, over the top performances here, in particular from horror legend Udo Kier (Blade, Suspiria, Blood for Dracula, Flesh for Frankenstein) hamming it up as Moon Führer Wolfgang Kortzfleisch and Götz Otto (Tomorrow Never Dies, Schindler's List) as the power hungry Adler. Julia Dietze takes centre-stage in this film as the wide-eyed and innocent young scientist who has been raised on the moon and spoonfed nazi propaganda since birth and Christopher Kirby (Daybreakers, Queen of the Damned) is the source of much of the humorous scenarios found within Iron Sky.

The film has been faulted for the incredibly unsubtle stabs and satire at the expense of US foreign policy and indeed, US politics but for me, this added to the charm of the movie.
Ultimately, Iron Sky delivers exactly what it promises. If you're looking for high-brow entertainment, this certainly won't be for you. On the other hand, if you're looking for a sci-fi adventure with a heavy dose of humour that doesn't take itself too seriously at all, I'd suggest that this is the best Nazis on the moon movie you'll ever see!
