Did You Know?


Udo Kier set up a similar moon military base in the video game Red Alert 2. See more »


At the beginning of the movie, the far side of the moon is in daylight, and just before the Klaus and his entourage leave for Earth shortly thereafter, the sun is just setting. However, when the exploratory ship arrives on Earth, the moon is full - that is, the near side is fully lit. Since the length of a day on the moon is actually almost a month, it would take weeks for this change to occur, when the implied length of time in the film is at most a couple of days. See more »


President of the United States: Vivian, you look great. How's it goin' up there?
Vivian Wagner: Madam President, I couldn't be better. I am packing dozens of megatons of nuclear warheads which I am going to carefully place up Klaus's kraut ass, just as soon as I get him in my sights.

Great sci-fi comedy about Nazis from the moon
4 April 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I have followed Iron Sky since the very beginning. I loved director Timo Vuorensola's first movie Star Wreck. It was camp, funny and the space battles were epic and the story was enjoyable. So I was expecting something similar but slightly better with a bigger budget from Iron Sky.

First I have to say that the comedy and story don't disappoint. They far exceeded my expectations. The comedy is some of the best I've seen in ages and there are references to old movies (Chaplin's Dictator and Dr. Strange Love to say a few) and modern pop culture/internet culture. Where critics and internet age teens and young adults should notice different parts where to laugh. If you know both the movie becomes obviously even better.

The story of the movie has been criticized but I personally think the flow of the story and plot is perfect. I was highly entertained by the story and expected the movie to continue at least 30 minutes more when the storyline was getting close to it's end. That said because of Star Wreck I was expecting to see even more space battles. I would have loved that but I know most movie critics and some of the viewers wouldn't have liked that. The story also criticizes cleverly the American government and their politics. This very relevant point is completely missed by most critics who just ignore the movie as cheap slapstick comedy. The slapstick comedy (which is very minimal) is the worst part of the film..

This movie seems to get some fairly good reviews but doesn't seem to get the praise it truly deserves. It was made with only 7,5 million and mostly looks like a top class Hollywood production. Finland has been known from small budget dramas aimed at Finnish people which have been going through the same tired pattern for many years. There have been few more or less successful horror movies like Sauna to break the norm but nothing as incredible as Iron Sky. Hopefully Iron Sky will encourage more visionary directors and film makers to create something new. With movies like this directors and other talent pave their way to Hollywood.
