In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space programme evaded destruction by the Allies and made a daring escape to the Moon. In the intervening 70 years they have re-colonised, re-armed with devastating new weapons and silently plotted their revenge. When an American astronaut stumbles upon their secret Moon lair, the Führer (Udo Kier, Blade) decides to unleash their alien armada upon the unprepared Earth, to be led by ruthless army leader Klaus Alder (Gotz Otto, Schindlers List, Downfall). Now every man, woman and child must unite to repel the UFO Nazi invasion and save humanity!

I wasn't drunk, honest.

Read the packaging for the description.

And giggle yourself into a stupor. The Sarah Palin-esque President. The second Generation NAZIs thinking they bring peace. The United Nations spoof. So many figures and caricatures lampooned.

Doctor Strangelove for a new generation, perhaps ? I know, not in that league for satire, "Gentlemen; you can't fight in here. This is the war room !" will not be beaten but this is truly, amazingly funny, albeit heavy handed. Sometimes I don't see the satire others do in movies; maybe this is just heavy handed enough to get through my Brummie skull, but it's a long time since I laughed this much.

I don't know what to say really, I've never seen anything funnier-except perhaps positive reviews for "Titanic".

I don't know how many times it will have to be watched to get all the gags; like "Airplane", there is so much on show, so many sly howlers.

Another example of how CGI can let a team with a brilliant concept and little money put a work of sheer genius out. While with ***t like Transformers, no idea and buckets of cash produces only poo.

A bad taste classic.

The extended version adds a few enjoyable bits, but the main reason to get it is to reward the sheer nerve that called it the "Dictator's Cut".

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!

I borrowed this from a work colleague before deciding to buy.

I'm not going to buy it yet but. . .I did enjoy it thoroughly as did my son (14) , the daughter (20) thought it was total rubbish, bloody twilight fan :)

Iron Sky is the story of the Nazi's realising they're defeated at the end of WW2. They've secretly built a rocket to escape earth and colonize/rebuild the empire on the dark side of the moon! Brilliant story. Cut to present day and a Sarah Palin-esque American president is losing in the ratings and is advised to send a black astronaut to the moon to boost her popularity. The sci-fi comedy that ensues from here on in is great in my opinion!

Iron Sky turned out to.be everything I was expecting. . .

Nazis in space Yes! B movies parody Yes! Tongue in cheek comedy including racism and anti Americanism Yes! Great spaceships and Nazi UFO's Yes! Terrible script with so bad its good acting Yes! Nazis speaking German with English subtitles in parts which just adds to the movie Yes! and to top it all off the 'Gotterdammerung' to be seen to be believed, wow! There's even a German scientist and a Downfall parody in there too!

Bluray-wise the picture quality is bang on for me. Crystal clear with vibrant colours, great detail on uniforms, German bikes with sidecars, shots of the moonbase and the UFO's and other craft! Nice and clear in darker scenes so all is good there. Audio isn't amazing but loads of bass so power your subwoofer up for the battle scenes folks!

Don't take it seriously, it is a comedy, loved the ending and will watch this again definitely!

Originally this started life as just a trailer. The interest that it generated from the internet was astounding and a series of low-level, largely Scandic, film funds grouped together and made this a reality, this truly is crowd-funding at it's essence. With that said, there are an unfathomable number of movie houses showing their logo at the beginning to this film!!

The Nazis are back, they've been hiding out on the dark side of the moon and have been recuperating and rebuilding their forces. When American astronaut James Washington (Christopher Kirby) is captured during a re-election press stunt to the moon, he becomes the impetus for the Nazi's to launch their largely mechanical space-fleet (complete with space Zeppelins and flying saucers) to conquer Earth. However, their limited technology means they are badly outmatched, and due to Nazi Earthologist Renate Richter's (the beautiful Julia Dietze) sympathies for Washington, the invasion might not go to plan. Will they manage to launch the behemothic Götterdämmerung?

This film knows it's about a stupid subject, but has some pretty sensitive issues to deal with, Nazis, War and Race. When the Nazi scientist "albinises" Washington, he spends a good part of the movie playing a white-man, so it's all a bit silly anyhow - it's all handled well. The CGI on the moon-base and Zeppelins is fantastic and there are some funny swipes at government and international space programs. The President of the United states is a funny slant on an easily recognisable person in US politics.
