Trivia

On a large computer screen in one scene, the "greatest war machine ever created by man", a.k.a. the "Götterdämmerung", is described in German as "eine Beförderungsplattform für duale ultra-schwere relativistische kinetische Atomhaubitzen". Literally, this translates to "a carrier for dual ultra-heavy relativistic kinetic atomic howitzers". See more »

Goofs

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 »

Classic B-Movie
21 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

Out of all the films being released in 2012, Iron Sky is, without a doubt, one of the most fun films to be a part of the list. When Nazis build a giant space station on the Moon after the final days of World War II, they await for the day when the Fourth Reich can return to Earth and try to conquer it again.

Yes, it does seem a bit pro-Nazi, but when you watch the film it really isn't; if anything, it does the greatest job at making fun of Nazis. I've never had a more hysterical and enjoyable ride with a movie since Super 8. The script is absolutely cheesy, the visual effects are astonishing, and the action is non-stop. There isn't much to say about the film besides the fact that it's a strange yet entertaining time at the movies and you're sure to not forget it because, even though some people will hate it and others will like it, the story is just so random you can't not remember it. Definitely one to check out for yourself, but just a heads-up for everyone; there's NOTHING realistic about the film. That's another reason why it's really fun.

8.5/10 Stars***
