5.0 out of 5 stars Who'd Have thought Nazi's could be fun?, 15 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Iron Sky [DVD] (DVD)
I avoided this thinking it was just another Nazi exploitation film. Then I heard the directors cut was out and it's actually a comedy - so I gave it a shot. We all know the best dressed side lost the war, but in this slice of comedy sci-fi the Germans merely retreated to the dark side of the moon and regrouped. Ignore the fact there is no oxygen, water, or ability to grow food and you will soon realise this is all well credible. There they rebuilt the Third Reich and planned to re-invade Earth around 2018.

Enter an inept attempt by a female President of the US to have a stunt to garner votes. She sends a black celebrity to the moon to be the first black man on the rock. Well he uncovers the dastardly, but well dressed and camped up, Germans teaching Aryan purity and a whole manner of other twaddle and unwittingly gets roped in to the whole thing and a bit of a love interest too in his female captor.

Cue the invasion of Earth - and hilarity ensuing etc. This starts out as a bit of fun but then actually works on a few levels. There is a lot going on around satire and even commentary on race and discrimination. It is also perfectly balanced in the acting department with everyone just over acting enough to be ludicrous but believable. The SFX are all great and the costumes and make up are brilliant with great clothes and some mad hair styles. I was expecting nothing and ended up absolutely loving this. Seriously funny, clever, satirical and recommended.
