Das Ist Gut!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Iron Sky (Blu-ray + Digital Copy) (Blu-ray)
Well, well. Who would have thought an independently funded joint Finnish/German/Aussie could knock the socks off just about every mundane film the US production line has churned out of late.
Part steam-punk, part sci-fi, part war and part political satire, the movie is deliciously entertaining. Moves at a fast pace too, from the moment the first men on the Moon in 36 years (so they thought) discover a secret Nazi base where latter day Aryans are plotting to invade the Earth. Perhaps occasionally a bit cliched but there are some wonderful movie homages including the infamous Downfall, where Hitler dismisses all but his generals from the bunker and a bit of Starship Troopers. The US president is an unashamed Sarah Palin alike.
Very satisfying ending too, perhaps leaving the viewer to contemplate who the worst race actually is plus hints at a sequel.
Imagery is of necessity quite dark in places but the Blu-ray transfer keeps up and the sound is good too.
Well worth watching and glad I purchased this one.
