Iron Sky (Movie Review)

CircleSlashAlas, no pictures. It’s all copyrighted. But there are plenty of images at the official web site.

It’s the movie, Iron Sky, and if you set your expectations correctly, you’ll enjoy it. Maybe even a whole lot.

This is destined to be a cult classic.

Here’s the mindset you want:

  • Expect a class B movie, nothing more.
  • Expect silly, unscientific and transparent.
  • Expect your heroes to be spoofed and ridiculed.

Viewing Recommendation

  • Watch it “On Demand” with DirecTv or as a DVD rental.
  • First of all, you won’t lose a lot on the little screen — the special effects are good but, frankly, the entertainment is in the dialog and easy to see details.
  • And secondly, in those formats you’ll gain the ability to pause, rewind, replay and to even watch the whole thing several times.

And keep the sound up; the dialog is great, even when it’s atrocious, it’s great!

For those who don’t already know the plot — where have you been for the past year? — it seems the Nazis, in 1945 and faced with certain destruction, built a base on the far side, incorrectly called the “dark side”, of the moon. They’ve been hiding there for 70 years building up strength to re-take the Earth.

And the time has come.
