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

Tries to present itself as a comedy with some elements of satire, but it's a complete misfire dragged down by a strange blend of Grindhouse cinema that takes itself too seriously.

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.

A space-ploitation brain fart.

It's just not smart enough to truly work.

Re-watch the teaser trailer, skip the final production.

In space, no one can hear you laugh either.

Someone is bound to create a mash-up of the film's effects sequences into a very cool half-hour highlight package... and that will ultimately become the best way to watch it.

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.

Insert your own 'lunar' pun here - this is a true space oddity.

Balls, that core factor found in the best political satires, is what Iron Sky is lacking.

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.)

Iron Sky really could have been something if only someone had written a decent script.

'Iron Sky' just proves that even the dumbest idea needs a smart mind behind it.

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

Lowballing schlock and nothing more.

Marginally more inspired and certainly more likable than Snakes on a Plane or The Human Centipede as net-spawned exploitation fodder goes, but you can safely wait for the DVD.

It's not terrible, by any means: just not nearly as funny or cruel as its killer premise suggests.

Completely fails to deliver on its basic premise and is ultimately disappointing, thanks to a lazy script, poor performances and ham-fisted direction.

Nazis on the moon! What could be more brilliantly bonkers than the lunatic premise of satirical sci-fi action comedy Iron Sky? Sadly, Finnish director Timo Vuorensola fails to make the most of his conceit.
