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
The symbol which the President and Adler adopt for their campaign is taken from the Laibach-album "Volk". Laibach created the soundtrack for "Iron Sky". See more »
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 »

Excellent parody! If you would wanted to watch a Star Wars type of movie you would be disappointed for sure, but if you appreciate the subtle irony then this your flick. I am sure that not much US Americans would enjoy it, because America is the greatest and you know, they have no mistakes! :) They only have jokes like: Hiroshima joke, Nagasaki joke, Vietnam joke and so on. And these were not acts of extreme fascism, but just peaceful and liberating intervention. ;) I liked this movie be not only for the good sarcasm, but also for the truths that have been said. This is a good German response to the Tarantino's Indigenous Bastards.
