In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon. During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers. Written by
The sound of a bell tolling is played repeatedly while the Nazi flying saucer is on its way to Earth on its first mission. This seems to be a reference to modern Nazi/UFO Mythology, which alleges the existence of a secret SS project to develop a machine known as "Die Glocke" - the Bell - an anti-gravity device designed to power the (fictitious?) "Haunebu" - the secret Nazi saucer. The saucer shown in the film also strongly resembles the "Haunebu" as depicted in various images claiming to depict this craft. See more »
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.

I watched this at a Munich cinema (Munich is where Hitler actually started the Nazi movement) in original English version with a crowd of mostly Germans. The audience was laughing their way through the entire movie, with several long applauds.
I loved this movie for three reasons: the political mocking of the US, the CGI and the references to other movies. Some may find it a camp movie, but this did not distract from the storyline. The scrip hast enough depth to make you wish they had added another 20 minutes of footage.
The beginning and middle part were great, although I found the ending a bit anti-climactic. The ending does follow upon the outcome of events, unlike many Hollywood movies it doesn't have absurd twists.
Some of the acting was below standards. But it's a refreshing movie to see. It shows that a new era of independent movies has come about: Hollywood budgets no longer compete with original ideas. It will pose a problem to Hollywood (and America too), because people like myself are fed up with the same one-sided world-view we've been watching for decades now.
