Iron Sky Reviews
Iron Sky if anything is proof, if anything that they don't always have to be shit. Unlike the license and law suit baiting parody bollocks that is spat out on a ferocious basis by studios such as The Asylum, Iron Sky has gathered quite the cult following the right way, by having a unique concept, rather than ripping off other people's work, and at least attempting to make a good film of it.
Iron Sky won't get entered into any lists of all time greats on reddit or buzzfeed, and I'm sure Roger Ebert wouldn't have been buried with a copy of the dvd, but taken on it's own merits you have a surprisingly fun two hours (dictators cut) with better cgi and special effects than some mid tier Hollywood numbers.
If b-movies really are a big deal these days, then take some comfort in Iron Sky being one of the better ones. Just don't expect Schindler's list.
After World War II most of us thought we were done with the Nazis; unfortunately, in 1945 they set up a base on the dark side of the moon to research and develop alien technology and return to the planet to take over the world. In 2018, the day has arrived when the Nazis return with spacecrafts like we've never seen. A secret spy organization tries to infiltrate the Nazis and take them down.
"Washington. James Washington."
Timo Vuorensola delivers Iron Sky in his first major motion picture debut (a sequel is reportedly in development). The storyline for this picture is dreadful and very disappointing. This wasn't clever or well done at all and the character development and script is lazy. The cast delivers mediocre performances and doesn't really include anyone notable.
"If you kill me that's just a really fucked up situation."
I came across this film on Netflix and was hoping it had some potential in a Starship Troopers kind of way; unfortunately, this falls flat and disappoints. Overall, this is a lame attempt to mix comedy with science fiction that isn't worth your time.
"Time to fuck back."
Not as bad as the more cerebral reviewers are making out, not the best film your ever going to see but not the worst by a long shot.
No point looking for spiritual
fulfillment in this film, let your mind freewheel and enjoy the special effects and action.
If it is 4 AM, you are with some buddies, and you like old sci-fi ridiculousness, this movie has it in spades PLUS modern visual effects.
The premise is laughable. The plot is awful. Details, details. Still, there is a laugh at every turn. How over-the-top can it get? You will just have to see. Alcohol recommended.
Acting: OK, tongue in cheek spoof style
