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
Iron Sky was a crazy little movie just daft enough to work in a thoroughly bonkers way. It had charm in truck loads and what they managed to do on a miniscule budget was extraordinary. The sequel has ten times the budget but just a fraction of the inspiration and the child-like wonder of it's predecessor. You find yourself watching just to see how much worse it can get...and it gets a lot worse as it limps along, I can tell you. I'm being generous with my 4/10 purely for the Dark Star homage right at the end with the credits song being a direct rip of Benson, Arizona, the tune that plays out over the credits of John Carpenter's low budget classic. Nice touch, I wonder if they were hoping that a little of that movie's genius would somehow leak over to their movie...
