Trivia

The fighter jets used by the US to repel the Nazi attack are Fairchild-Republic A-10 "Thunderbolt II" and Lockheed Martin F-22 "Raptor". The F-22 is even shown with open weapons slots when attacking the UFOs as the stealth abilities of the aircraft are greatly impaired by external weapons such as missiles and bombs. See more »

Goofs

At the end, when the camera pans up from the Moon base to view Earth through the crater created by the Gotterdammerung, we see Earth three-quarter covered in shadow; in the next shot, when the camera reverses its position and tracks backward from the moon over Earth we see the sun rise up behind the Moon, effectively creating a lunar eclipse. Were that the case we should have seen Earth as a full disc with no shadow in the first shot. See more »

Excellent effort, worthy of viewing
14 February 2012 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie the 62nd Berlinale (Berlin Film Festival). Recommend its worth your time given a few caveats.

Lots of things to like about Timo's sophomore effort here. The movie is intentionally campy and plays to a number of eccentric stereotypes. Albeit, it feels very much a European view of some of the US eccentricities. The script was, by and large, well developed, the humor a little cheesy at times but generally spot on and large kudos should be paid to the FX, CGI teams for some outstanding segments in a sub $10M budgeted movie. The best parts include some great inside jokes specific to Americans and Germans, wonderful stereotyping of international ethnicities/prejudices, great attention to detail in costumes, sets, current culture trends and some above average acting by Julia Dietze, Goetze Otto and, of course, the wonderful Udo Kier. Oh, and the Laibach score for the movie was simply superb.

My caveats are that the cut I saw could have used slightly more surgical editing. Also, while I think Christopher Kirby has played well in other movies, I felt disappointed by this casting choice, as his role was central to the story line and the least "even" in terms of performance. Finally, it is intentional camp so expectations should be adjusted prior to entering the theater. I'm not sure the Mystery Science Theater guys could have come up with better lines than some that were already in the script of this movie.

In the end this felt much more thought out and a real "labor of love" than the traditional camp of Scary Movie, et al. This movie certainly has all the right elements of an instant cult classic. Putting it more simply, its about Nazis, living in a swastika shaped Moon base, trying to re-invade Earth!

My sincere thanks to the Iron Sky community for pulling the resources together to get this film made. For $7.5M I'd say, job very well done! This is probably, or usually, a ~7 IMDb score for this kind of a movie. I'm giving it 8 to balance out the previous reviewer.
