Huge Disappointment - the first Iron Sky movie was much better with a smaller budget
8 May 2019 | by helloamazonSee all my reviews

I loved Iron Sky 1 for what it was, a good SF B-Movie with some very sarcastic and even intelligent political in-jokes.

The sequel is a big disappointment unfortunately (and, to reiterate, I write this as someone who loves B-movies and I even donated some money for this sequel):

  • Weak plot and no credible bad guy. "Jokes" that simply don't work or are tired ("jailbroken" iPhones in 2019?), coupled with wooden acting. However, I don't think the actors are to blame a lot given the weak script and plot they had to work with.


  • The special effects are not much better than in the first movie, where did all the budget (around 3X the amount of the first movie, 20+ million versus 7-8 million!) end up? For example, the director asked for extra crowdfunding money for some additional "Vril" kill scenes that add next to nothing in the final version.


  • Weak communication with funders, credibility broken or lost. "Normal" moviegoers get to see the sequel weeks or months in advance - and since the movie leaked out to the usual Internet sites, there was and is no sound logic in NOT providing a digital copy (or at least a stream) to backers who funded this in good faith many years ago.


(The movie ended up in development hell because of legal troubles with the FX team from the first movie concerning intellectual property, I will spare you the boring details. This results in more of the jokes and puns that COULD have worked a few years ago now being outdated as of 2019.).

Recommendation for a third Iron Sky movie (which is at least hinted at at the end of the movie): Get a better script writer, get a better script writer. Did I mention to get a better script writer? And maybe a new director as well.
