During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers.

Two Nazi officers, ruthless Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) and idealistic Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), travel to Earth… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Great idea, lousy execution: "Iron Sky" boasts one of the zaniest premises in recent memory, and somehow manages to squander most of its potential."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"It's Nazis from space. Cult movie fans will basically know what to expect. It's just a shame it couldn't have been a bit better."
‑ Catherine Bray, Film4
"The film hasn't the budget to match its dizzying concept, nor the wit to fill the gaps between."
‑ Matt Glasby,
"The jokes are spasmodic, as satirically weightless as playing golf on the moon."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Nazis on the moon! What could be more brilliantly bonkers than the lunatic premise of satirical sci-fi action comedy Iron Sky? Sadly, Finnish director Timo Vuorensola fails to make the most of his conceit."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"In space, no one can hear you laugh either."
‑ William Goss,
"To its credit, while routinely stupid, it is playfully so - and it gets over the line through sheer force of charm. A "triumph of the will", if you catch our drift. (Sorry.)"
‑ Patrick Kolan, Shotgun Critic
"Despite some ill-advised turns of tonality, Iron Sky remains intriguing, submitting a lively sci-fi vision with a pronounced historical playfulness, keeping the feature eager to please and out to awe."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Re-watch the teaser trailer, skip the final production."
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"The space battle scenes are impressive, Julia Dietze is sexy and demure as the Nazi schoolteacher sent to Earth and there are genuinely funny moments."
‑ Mark Adams, Daily Mirror [UK]
"'Iron Sky' just proves that even the dumbest idea needs a smart mind behind it."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"Shock horror: hilariously terrible-sounding movie ends up being nowhere near as fun as you might hope. This does not bode well for my time-travelling monkey idea."
‑ Matt Looker,
"History tells us that you can't fake trash classics and you can't manufacture a cult."
‑ Tara Brady, Irish Times
"A space-ploitation brain fart."
‑ Ed Whitfield, The Ooh Tray
"Lowballing schlock and nothing more."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
