Synopsis


Iron Sky
An army of Nazis from the dark side of the moon launch an all-out attack on planet Earth after biding their time on the lunar surface for 70 years in this irreverent sci-fi comedy starring Udo Kier and Julia Dietze. The year is 2018. Defeated in 1945, a devoted group of Nazis led by General Wolfgang Kortzfleisch (Kier) blast off for the moon and begin to regroup at a hidden base. As work commences on the Götterdämmerung, a mighty warship that will strike fear into the people of planet Earth, Renate Richter (Julia Dietze) uses a truncated version of Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator to extol the brilliance of Hitler to the next generation of Aryan soldiers. In addition, the imposing Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) prepares to take his position as the next führer and father a new master race with Renate. Meanwhile, the U.S. president (Stephanie Paul) attempts to boost her approval ratings by dressing black model James Washington (Christopher Kirby) as an astronaut and sending him on a mission to the moon. When the Nazis capture Washington and get a good look at his smartphone, they believe they have finally found the key to updating their outdated technology, and they journey back to Earth in order to gather enough gadgets to launch their final attack and reclaim the planet in the name of the Third Reich. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Defeated villains return to do us in

    The summary above is the premise of Iron Sky, as descendents of the World War 2 villains who secretly colonized the Moon at the war's end are accidentally discovered by an unsuspecting lunar mission, making their way to Earth and manipulating their warped world views to make them indistinguishable from normal American values and ideals--before breaking out the big guns. It's scary how easy the villains pull this off, as residents of the Moon are insulated from the horrors of the German regime, naively believing that their leaders are peaceful. The film targets current events, such as unnamed--yet obvious--politicos, alternative energy needs, oil wars, and American hegemony in a darkly satirical--sometimes hilarious, and often less so--manner, similar to Doctor Strangelove; without giving anything away, this doesn't exactly bode well. Their is a silliness factor, to be sure, such as space zeppelins and mad scientists, and much content may not go over well with partisans, but it's a risk one takes with films attempting to entertain, and make people think. And the musical soundtrack played in the final credits--which must be watched, to see what the future holds for Earth--is worth the price, too.

    I need to start by saying you will not enjoy this film if you are not willing/able to suspend belief during the show. There are a lot of goofy gags and just stupid dialogue, but hey, look past that and see the film for what it is - a cheesy, ridiculous spoof.

    Just a all around bad movie!

    This has to put in the same classification as Plan 9 from Outer Space. Just a completely terrible movie. I was hoping for a movie that might end up being a cult classic like Rocky Horror. But I ended up with a movie that will be shown to a cult. Avoid this movie at all cost!

    Can't say enough on how ridiculous this movie is, bought it for the sheer gitch factor and was pleased to find a fun movie that I suspect I will enjoy through the years.
