Despite some ill-advised turns of tonality, Iron Sky remains intriguing, submitting a lively sci-fi vision with a pronounced historical playfulness, keeping the feature eager to please and out to awe.

The space battle scenes are impressive, Julia Dietze is sexy and demure as the Nazi schoolteacher sent to Earth and there are genuinely funny moments.

Stylishly made with some terrific effects, Iron Sky also draws on everything from Star Wars to Dr Strangelove, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and a Sarah Palin-style US President in Stephanie Paul...

Madchens in tight blouses, space travelling stormtroopers, - was ist not to like?

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.

The performances are fine and the film, mainly shot in the studios on the Gold Coast, looks terrific most of the time; it's the script that needed more oomph.

If you like your sci-fi strange, and if you appreciate "little films that can - and do", you just might groove to this. I did.

Mercifully, Iron Sky is not interested in being bad, which is fortunate, because I have no interest in watching something bad.

The production values are extraordinary. Yet for all its chutzpah, matters begin to go awry once the Nazi army descends on Earth, where they lose their sense of comedic power.

It would have been better if director Timo Vuorensola had squeezed every drop of high camp out of the screenplay and given the film over entirely to wicked black pleasure

Bold, brave and over-the-top with its fearless, irreverence and political satire.

The production design and visual effects are so standout, it threatens to betray the film's delightfully kitschy B-movie premise.

It's an ancestor to the Mel Brooks genre spoof movies and even (in it's own cheap, camp, determinedly silly way) the black, politically charged satire of Dr. Strangelove.

It's Nazis from space. Cult movie fans will basically know what to expect. It's just a shame it couldn't have been a bit better.

To its credit, while routinely stupid, it is playfully so - and it gets over the line through sheer force of charm. A "triumph of the will", if you catch our drift. (Sorry.)

Shock horror: hilariously terrible-sounding movie ends up being nowhere near as fun as you might hope. This does not bode well for my time-travelling monkey idea.

Great idea, lousy execution: "Iron Sky" boasts one of the zaniest premises in recent memory, and somehow manages to squander most of its potential.

The film hasn't the budget to match its dizzying concept, nor the wit to fill the gaps between.

History tells us that you can't fake trash classics and you can't manufacture a cult.

The jokes are spasmodic, as satirically weightless as playing golf on the moon.
