Trivia

The scene in which Vivian Wagner is at her public relations firm going over her staff's presidential campaign pitch is a direct parody of the scene in Downfall (2004) in which Hitler discovers he'll lose the war. Peta Sergeant even shakily removes her glasses the way Bruno Ganz as Hitler does in the earlier film. See more »

Goofs

On Earth, Klaus Adler comments a 1971 Volkswagen Type 2 Microbus with the words, "Ah - ein Kleinbus!" While that is a correct word for the vehicle, there is no way he could have known what it was, since the Type 2 wasn't conceived until the late 1940s - and even when it went into production in 1949, it looked very different from the post-1968 model in the movie. There were also no other small vans (Kleinbusse in German) in Germany before 1945; with the word Kleinbus, Germans of that era would likely have identified a small city bus or coach, not a vehicle sized like a passenger car.

Surprising
20 March 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Special FX, camp humor, Nazis, Star Wreck goofiness, fan funding and the genre background all have been major selling points for Iron Sky, and I have to say I was filled with doubt and skepticism walking into the theater. Because, you know, those selling points usually produce a passable having-a-laf-wid-geezers-over-a-beer-or-dozen-watching-a-turkey experience, but not a good movie.

But this film was something altogether different! This is a real movie! It has a story! That is filled with cutting satire! It tells us something about our world more than from the imagined world of the story. So I'll join others in placing this film in the near vicinity of Dr. Strangelove, where it belongs. This film too is saying: "This is us. Fear us. And by the way, you are us too."

I think that the part about Nazis is not where this film will get most of its flak. (Remember, they sold this to Israel too, that should tell you something about the way the Nazis are treated.) Rather it is the target of the satire that will yelp the loudest. Once this is more widely shown to the masses, I'll except to see some amusingly furious hate for Iron Sky.
