Storyline

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. When American astronaut James Washington puts down his Lunar Lander a bit too close to the secret Nazi base, the Moon Führer decides the glorious moment of retaking the Earth has arrived sooner than expected. Washington claims the mission is just a publicity stunt for the President of the United States, but what else could the man be but a scout for the imminent attack by Earth forces? The Fourth Reich must act. Two Nazi officers, ruthless Klaus Adler and idealistic Renate Richter, travel to Earth to prepare the invasion. In the end when the Moon Nazi UFO armada darkens the skies, ready to strike at the unprepared Earth, every man, woman and nation alike, must re-evaluate their priorities.

Do you really think it's funny?
7 April 2012 | by endbossproductionsSee all my reviews

I saw the movie yesterday and I had to laugh 1-2 times and maybe I grinned slightly up to 10 times ... but thats it. The humour level barely reached Scary Movie niveau (what is low). I was surprised that nobody slipped on a banana skin. And at the end, the face palming level was too damn high ...

Where were the mighty and merciless badass Nazis to be afraid of? Where were the Nazi-Mutant-Experiments? All the secret weapons? All I got was a bunch of nazi-clowns and a leader, which was not worth the title. That movie would have been so much better, if they had not tried to be trashy and funny. I guess a Robert Rodriguez would have done a much better job.

OK, I know they wanted to make a comedy movie .. but gosh! These jokes were incredibly lame and the political criticism seemed so forced.

A serious science-fiction "attack the world" movie would have been the better choice for me. I guess I'm going to watch "Dead Snow" again ^^
