Introducing a crazy new genre mash-up from Australian director, Stephen Amis. A WWII sci-fi adventure - full of time-travel, duplicitous Nazi robots, faulty spaceships and giant mega-fauna... Based on the classic novella, 50,000 Years Until Tomorrow by J.J. Solomon, and with a screenplay penned by Amis, David Richardson and Serge DeNardo, the movie is a homage to sci-fi and WWII movies of the 1940's and 50's. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


The director's cut of The 25th Reich features the spoof ending: "To be Continued in The 25th Reich and The War with God" - a homage to 1930's and 40's serial cliffhanger finales. For the U.K. release, the distributors deleted this ending. See more »


Rifleman Roberto Barelli: Growin' up in Brooklyn, I seen a lot of ugly things... Protestants thumpin' Catholics, Catholics thumpin' Jews... Everyone runnin' their own stinkin' racket... Jeez, talk about organized religion.
Corporal Haywood Updike: What the hell kind of tune are you playin'?
Rifleman Roberto Barelli: I'm playin' Yankee Doodle Dandy. I'm playin' The Star Spangled Banner. And if we don't all start singin' from the same song book, then those Nazi bastards will have us singin' Lili Marleen.

I quite enjoyed it
2 June 2012 | by cityjakSee all my reviews

Well I did!

After watching the trailer and reading some of the website previews I kind of knew what to expect. Yeh its a bit cheesy and a little homo erotic, but I think it was supposed to be that way. I certainly didn't watch it to be blown away by special effects and if you removed them you still have some pretty interesting characters.

The film is a bit of a slow starter but by no means boring, tension between characters is quickly established. It was great to see the Australian bush and there were some beautiful locations. The ending is pure '50's sci fi and I hope they make a sequel! It was a fun way to spend an evening.
