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.Written by

A Hollywood Nazi Movie
Hollywood Nazis are strange creatures. They are smart enough to invent the most amazing machines, but still totally dumb and robot-like.
That's actually a very accurate description of this movie. Technically it sometimes looks really good: the space ships, the exploding Zeppelins in outer space, the death star "Götterdämmerung". But it's unlikely that any humans were involved in the creation of the script. Words like "stupid" and "boring" don't even begin to describe it. There is no internal logic, you should never ask yourself "Why?" or "How?" or anything. It's no coincidence that the production of "Iron Sky" started shortly after the airing of South Park's "Cartoon Wars" in 2006, it's very likely that - just as shown in this episode - manatees choosing idea balls were used as writing staff.
Of course the acting is very cartoonish, the music by Laibach is totally wasted, the political views are those of sophomoric teenagers.
Americans annoyed by the portrayal of their country in this picture should consider this: The European Union and the German state participated in the financing of this spaced out garbage. Be glad you never paid for this, make sure you never will.
