Doner und blitzen
Those pesky Nazis are at it again. Since I last wrote about naughty Nazis we've seen zombie Nazis (dead snow) super villain Nazis bashed up by Captain America and now Nazis from the moon in Iron Sky.

The concept is simple; Nazis fled to the dark side of the moon in 1945 where they sorted themselves out and are now out to wreak vengeance on an unsuspecting world. All quite plausible some conspiracy theorists might say.
Houston we have a problem
Iron Sky is pitched perfectly as a comedy/satire and it reminds me of Paul Verhoeven at his best. It has the look of a Gerry Anderson movie crossed with a Michael Bay pomp-fest.

Iron Sky is a great kitsch B movie with something for all lovers of Schlock and awe. William Castle and Ed Wood would be proud of it in both concept and execution.
