Twenty years after the events of Iron Sky, the former Nazi Moonbase has become the last refuge of mankind. Earth was devastated by a nuclear war, but buried deep under the wasteland lies a power that could save the last of humanity - or destroy it once and for all. The truth behind the creation of mankind will be revealed when an old enemy leads our heroes on an adventure into the Hollow Earth. To save humanity they must fight the Vril, an ancient shapeshifting reptilian race and their army of dinosaurs.Written by
In September 2017 it was reported that five animators and VFX specialists who created some visual elements for the cult "Nazis on the Moon" film Iron Sky, have filed suit against the film's producers, claiming copyright infringement of their work. In a copy of the suit obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, the five claimants accuse Finnish producers Blind Spot and the Iron Sky Universe, the group that handles rights to the Iron Sky brand, of using design elements they created without obtaining the proper rights and without giving proper compensation. The plaintiffs claim their creative contribution to the Iron Sky franchise is such that they should also be considered as joint copyright holders of the original movie. Iron Sky producer Tero Kaukomaa, in an email exchange with THR, declined to comment on the suit, saying he had not yet seen it, but called the claims erroneous and groundless. He pointed to numerous similar, and unsuccessful, attempts by the lead plaintiff in the case, Trevor Baylis, to claim copyright for his work done on Iron Sky. Kaukomaa described Baylis as a trainee on the VFX team during the first Iron Sky film, who "performed technical duties related to 3D modeling" and could not be considered a creator of the film in any way. In May 2018, the court resolved the case in favour of Iron Sky Universe. In the court's opinion the nature of the plaintiff's work did not award copyrights to them, apart from a single spaceship, the copyright of which had already been legally transferred to the production company.

Even Iron Sky-The Coming race is a sequel for the first Iron Sky movie, it is easy to watch as an independent story. Screen write is so crazy, that it surely is not a art movie. And it doesn't have to be one. It is an crazy comedy and it will make you laugh. Silly ideas of human history has told a new way and history of a mankind will bee re written. Finally we get some sense for the story of Adam and Eve. Story doesn't bow to any religion, old or new, but make them laughable as they originally should be. Christianity, Muslim and I-religious are told and expressed the way they needed. Totally crazy way. Story telling is very rapid, but because the silliness of the story one and half an hour is more than enough for this movie.
Iron Sky-The Coming Race is silly movie, but what else can you expect of the story of Nazis in the moon. Acting is great and Udo Kier is great in double role of his. After all Iron Sky-The Coming race is very enjoyable movie despite of it's inadequacy. Movie sounds beautifully and CGI looks great. Despite all of it lacks it is great to see, that Finnish movie makers can make Hollywood quality spectacle. It surely is not the greatest movie you have ever seen, but very enjoyable crazy comedy science fiction flick. If you can enjoy the silly story with some clever jokes about religious and enjoy great soundtrack and beautiful CGI, this movie is made for you. Hopefully we will get a change to see the third movie of the trilogy near future. Meanwhile we can enjoy another Iron Sky movie, The Ark- Iron Sky Movie, which is in post production at the moment later this year.
