Movie Review: Iron Sky

Have you ever wondered what it'd be like if the Nazis weren't really gone, but instead had taken over the moon? Well wait no more, for now there is Iron Sky.

Plot Synopsis

At the end of World War II the Nazis launch a secret space program to the dark side of the moon. For the next 70 years they lie in wait, constructing a massive space fortress and fleet of heavily armed flying saucers. In 2018, they make their move to take back the Earth.

Iron Sky isn't the greatest movie of all time, but if you're looking for a movie to sit, relax, and unwind with, than it's the perfect fit.

The story will keep your attention, the acting is actually good, it's well paced with the action, and the humor is well timed. Above all else though, the movie's musical score was absolutely mind blowing.

Our only real complaint was at the opening sequence of the movie. There was nothing about it that made us feel like these events were actually happening on the moon, everything was beyond fake, even the astronauts' space suits were terrible.

First ten minutes had us wondering if Iron Sky could get any more cornier and cheesier. After those ten minutes though, things turned around and we fully enjoyed the film.

Iron Sky is a 93 minute Sci-Fi comedy, rated R for strong language and some violence, stars Julia Dietze, Gotz Otto, and Christopher Kirby, and was directed by Timo Vuorensola.

We give Iron Sky a solid 3 out 5.
