DVD Review - The 25th Reich (2012)

The 25th Reich, 2012.

Directed by Stephen Amis.

Starring Jim Knobeloch, Serge De Nardo, Angelo Salamanca, Jak Wyld and Dan Balcaban.

Synopsis:

During World War II, five Us soldiers are selected to travel forward in time to protect the world from the tyranny of Hitler's 25th Reich.

There has always been in this argument within the film medium that certain movies can be ‘so bad that they’re actually good’ which is what I feel the filmmaking team behind The 25th Reich were going for. However, when going down this route you walk a very thin line between ‘so bad it’s good’ and ‘so bad it’s awful’.

UFOs! Nazis! Robot Spiders! Behold the Trailer for The 25th Reich!

The headline pretty much says it all. Director Stephen Amis’ upcoming time-traveling actioner “The 25th Reich” — which is based on the novel “50,000 Years Until Tomorrow” — looks to be a hell of a lot of fun, especially for those of us who enjoy our science fiction mixed with a little history and a lot of CGI robots. The film is currently in post-production, which means we may have to wait a while before this one sees the proverbial light of day. However, to keep the fires of our collective interest burning, a trailer had been released. Needless to say, I’m pumped. Check out this very short plot synopsis: In 1943, five Us soldiers are recruited by the Oss for a time travel mission to save the world from the tyranny of Hitler’s 25th Reich. “The 25th Reich” stars Jim Knobeloch, Serge DeNardo, Angelo Salamanca, Dan Balcaban, and Jak Wyld.

Us soldiers time trip to battle Nazi robtos in The 25th Reich

The 25th Reich is being described as "a rollicking, WWII Sci-Fi adventure full of time-travel, duplicitous Nazi robots, faulty spaceships and giant, bloodthirsty mega-fauna..." Sounds like an awesome Indiana Jones style WWII adventure with scifi elements and classic creature-feature nods. Love it.

Official synopsis:

In 1943, five Us soldiers are recruited by the Oss for a time travel mission to save the world from the tyranny of Hitler's 25th Reich.

Now in post-production, the movie was produced in Australia and features a great crew with tons of experience. Costume designs were done by Ian Sparke (The Pacific), special makeup effects by Nik Dorning (Lord of the Rings, Australia, Troy and Knowing), editing by Bill Murphy (Romper Stomper), a Wagnerian, motif-driven score by Ricky Edwards (Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga.Hoole).

Directed by Stephen Amis, the film stars Jim Knobeloch (Heaven.s Gate), Serge DeNardo, Angelo Salamanca, Dan Balcaban and Jak Wyld.
