With a whole lot of ingenuity and brass balls a bunch of Finns have managed to create a great looking effects driven spectacle; and as such Iron Sky should be applauded for being an inspirational tale. Unfortunately the movie itself misses most of its beats, overstating jokes and dropping the ball on several otherwise decent plot points, leaving a well-meaning, good-looking but somewhat messy experience.

I wish they had played this more straight, and let the sets, props and setting take care of the humor. The ending, which I found shockingly beautiful, would have been all the more evocative. I kept catching myself thinking about things I would have done differently - the film doesn't seem to realize that it actually has a lot to say, and it renders itself a bit moot by continually ladling on (often poor) jokes. I was quite entertained, and it did many things right, so I'll cut it some slack.

This can't decide what it wants to be. Is it a low-brow spoof? An intentionally campy B-movie? Something more darkly comedic in the vein of Dr. Strangelove? With the impressive indie CGI, the cinematic references, the sci-fi sensibilities, and the self-aware sense of humor, I *really* wish I could love this. Unfortunately, it just didn't work, and therefore was never really that good. The intentions, whatever they were, were clearly a lot smarter and better than the movie we ended up with.

Iron Sky has lots of great and clever ideas, but also lots of really stupid ones. The retro-scifi technology is pretty cool and the visual effects are stunning (especially considering the budget), but some of the jokes were just too lame. Still enjoiable.

the concept itself is plain awesomeness. however, a more serious approach would've fitted better. some jokes were decent, even memorable. but mostly it was stupid bullshit, not worth mentioning. too bad, i was really looking forward to something cult-ish...

It's not the worst Nazi-related movie that came out in 2012 (that dubious honor goes to Baby Geniuses 3: The Final Solution) but ye gods, this was a total dud. Some of the CGI looks nice I guess, but this was definitely one of those movies that looks fun as a one-sentence premise and completely falls apart as a 90 minute feature.

Not enough satire for my taste and sometimes the movie had its lengths and got really boring. Effectswise it was pretty good. "Götterdämmerung" was really impressive. Götz Otto did a good job.

Hmmmmm. This didn't quite work. Oh, I see the attempt at campy B-movie-ness, but it switches messily between goofy comedy with comedy characters, idealistic attempts at deep characterization, cynical black comedy with flat characters, straight-up action, and serious social commentary - and these moments clash, instead of providing interesting contrast. The cinematography is wonderful, and the soundtrack is awesome, but it doesn't play as the satirical parody it's trying to be.

Pretty fun movie to watch. Lots of spoofs in there which makes you go 'aha!' when you see them. CGI is impressive esp. when you realize how low the budget is. Concept is nice. The plot can be all over the place though. Also there is not really a central character here. The satire is heavy-handed and a bit rough on the edges. What appealed to me the most was the combination of B-movie elements with high production value - it felt stands out (in a good way) among the movies made these days.

Definately a huge love/hate movie for everybody. Luckily for me, it was the former! References to numerous movies, nazi-tastic story, soundtrack and execution (amazing CGI and acting for such a low budget) make a really unique and satirical movie that's just incredibly enjoyable to watch.

Does not go nearly far enough in its effort to be a parody and/or cheese-fest. Humor mostly revolves around the worst kind of heavy handed, hyper-liberal "the US is a big dumb bully" kinds of jokes. CG effects are surprisingly not terrible. +10 points for the actually funny North Korea joke.

The premise and obvious story line to this film is far more interesting than the film itself. The editing feels rushed and...........I can't remember half the film as it becomes dribble. A chance at becoming a cult classic was missed here. Shame.

Really entertaining for a movie that isn't good. Like it did well at parodying when it tried but other times it tried to take itself too seriously or too jokingly and ruined the tone of the movie. There were good parts (great B movie CGI, and funny premise), and bad (acting and execution), but I'd say depending on who you are this could be worth a watch.

It doesn't really work as satire. It doesn't work as a dark comedy. The acting is poor. The jokes are something you would expect from 10 year olds. The concept itself could have worked with a funny script with better execution. As it stands it's a piss poor film that attempts to be something over the top and is just silly stupid instead. I give them credit for even attempting something like this but it's no killer klowns from outer space or even a so bad it's funny gayniggers from outer space.

There's some decent humour but a lot of the satire falls a bit flat. Playing it deadly serious and letting the ridiculousness of the premise play out would have worked better. The FX are utterly fantastic for a no-budget film, better than what millions of Hollywood dollars were producing a couple of years ago. Despite the shortcomings it's still great fun to watch and further proof that film-making is for everyone now, and indie directors can compete with the best Hollywood production values.

We glamorize fascism but only ironically, you see? There's not a single moment in the whole movie that wasn't cringeworthy. I'm fairly sure it was written by some kind of a computer script that just combines shitty scenes at random.

A wildly, irresistibly entertaining B-movie that's leagues more clever and better-looking than you might expect. The climax is admittedly incomprehensible and kinda badly shot, but the whole thing's just so lovably scrappy, with more energy and snappier ideas than most mainstream big-studio releases these days. Get some buddies together, get a few six-packs, throw this thing on; odds are you won't be sorry.

Truly original story.The two languages,choice of words and some phrases are sometimes fresh and surprising, although always fitting.Characters of the main heroes are exposed perfectly and you don't get a feeling someone's interesting been left out (well, maybe except dr).Acting and music are natural - Americans are easy, Nazis are strict and the music is somewhere in the background.Special effects remain unnoticeable yet stunning. You also cannot forget the humour included,which is just great :D

The idea is briliant, and some jokes and scenes are perfect. The Nazi style black leather uniforms looks kinda cool in future world. The problem is, the movie is not as funny as you would expect, and when trying to deliver a "message" it looks little bit ridiculous. It simply doesn't hold together.

Pretty much everything I hoped for. I should have watched this sooner as I was a fan of the first film these guys made, a Star Trek/Babylon 5 parody called Star Wreck: In The Perkininng. As there, this film has quite cheesy humour, slightly dodgy acting and FANTASTIC effects. Some quite clever stuff woven in too, and a very bleak ending (no spoilers)

I had to turn it off. The production value looked OK for the level of film it is, but the in your face campyness is cringeworthy. It does not allow you the benefit of the doubt with any joke. It hammers you over the head with it complete with musical queues.

Little disappointed in this. I did not know of the Left-Wing Bias behind this movie (Female President that looks like Sarah Palan). Movie does kinda drag at a lot of points.

It's basically a demo reel that someone tried to cram a plot into. All the jokes seem like someone just said "hey you know what would be funny" and then they shoehorned them in, between the special effects.

A great idea let down by uniformly terrible acting. Neither the actors or editors have the slightest sense of comic timing, so many of the (too many) poor jokes fall flat. Saying that, there are some real moments of inspired madness, the effects look great and there's a couple of memorable moments in the score - "Take ME To Heaven" and Flight of the Valkyries.

Da Spezialeffekte und schauspielerische Leistung kaum ein ernsthaftes Kriterium bei der Bewertung sein werden, bewerte ich mal den Humor. Gute und mittelmäßige Gags wechseln sich ab, manche Anspielungen sind durchaus gelungen, einige wenige aber auch sehr flach. Fazit: Effekte sind OK, Schauspieler gerade noch erträglich, der Film als ganzes durchaus OK, kann man gucken.

A wonderfully campy movie about Nazi's hiding a base on the dark side of the moon. The cast did a fantastic job, the visuals were really quite stunning and the crazy campyness had no end with a female president that I guess was supposed to be Sarah Palin and she apparently has a hot evil campaign manager. All the jokes seemed to be aimed at conservatives but I wasn't offended. I thought that Julia Dietze played an excellent German beauty, even though she was born in France. Great fun!

Works to some degree as a farce, until it bizarrely tries to turn into a somber morality play at the end. It ends up looking like they changed their mind on what kind of film it was at the last minute, or they ran out of money, or both. Some positives: the special effects are pretty neat! The North Korea joke was funny!

Sometimes when a film comes out that is knowingly self aware of its silly premise it seems to say "Look, we both know why we're here, you just want to see us do this funny idea." If it were a Hollywood film, chances are it would be rubbish because it would forget that there should be a story to go along with it. This, being a low budget Finnish film, does have that self awareness (how could it not? I mean... Moon Nazi's) but there is also a story and it's not a bad one, if you like satire.

I had a hilarious evening watching this: the theme in general, the way it was accomplished (pretty good!) with what relatively little budget there was, the small side jokes and the major analysis of how UN and US politics are working. However, some of the jokes were just too dumb even for me and the storyline itself didn't offer too many surprises after all.

At least the Germans speak German. The gorgeous Peta Sergeant gets all the best lines, which she devours without even chewing them first. A unique bit of cinema.
