Mars Movie Reviews – Iron Sky


Movie Info:  In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon.  During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers.  When American astronaut James Washington (Christopher Kirby) puts down his Lunar Lander a bit too close to the secret Nazi base, the Moon Führer (Udo Kier) decides the glorious moment of retaking the Earth has arrived sooner than expected.  Two Nazi officers, ruthless Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) and idealistic Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), travel to Earth to prepare the invasion.  In the end when the Moon Nazi UFO armada darkens the skies, ready to strike at the unprepared Earth, every man, woman and nation alike, must re-evaluate their priorities. — (C) Official Site

Mars Review: The space battle scenes are impressive.  Iron Sky is bold, brave and over-the-top with its fearless, irreverence and political satire.  Let’s face it: it’s Nazis from the Moon invading Earth in flying saucers, if you’re expecting anything other than abject absurdity, you’re in the wrong movie.  If you appreciate “little films that can – and do”, you just might groove to this. I did.
