Iron Sky Preview

Preview by Brian Orndorf, July 26, 2012

I’ve seen movies about chimps in space and Muppets from space, but Nazis in space? That’s a new one. “Iron Sky” is a semi-farcical take on a futureworld German invasion, manipulating a low budget splendidly, turning limited resources into a feature that could compete with the blockbusters on a visual scale. However, its sense of humor is on the emaciated side, imagining itself as a Kubrickian romp out to tickle American politics, Nazi taboos, and war picture traditions. It’s ambitious and certainly digestible, but the chaotic nature of the material wears out its welcome quickly, leaving the extravaganza ideal B-movie eye candy best appreciated with the mute button engaged.



In the year 2018, The President of the United States (a Sarah Palin lookalike played by Stephanie Paul) has returned a man to the moon, an African-American model named James Washington. Stumbling upon a Nazi space station established in 1945, James is captured by Klaus Adler (Gotz Otto), a ruthless German eyeing his place as the next Fuhrer of the moon. Renate Richter (Julia Dietze) is a kindly educator who shows interest in the prisoner, hoping to learn more about the Earth, only to watch as James is aryanized and turned into a soldier. Returning to Earth to power a Nazi superweapon, the Gotterdammerung, with cell phone technology, Klaus and Renate align themselves with the President, promising a bold New World Order of peace and prosperity. While Renate is earnest about her message, Klaus has other plans, returning to the moon with a tablet to bring his colossal machine to life. Back on Earth, Renate learns the true nature of her Nazi heritage, teaming with James to prevent the rise of the Gotterdammerung, while a U.N.-style league of nations prepare for battle, led by the warship U.S.S. George W. Bush, commanded by presidential advisor Vivian Wagner (Peta Sergeant), Klaus’s spurned lover.

“Iron Sky” is a terrific joke lacking a sensational punchline. The premise of Nazis colonizing the moon (their home base is shaped like a swastika) after their defeat in WWII is ripe with potential, with director Timo Vuorensola developing a mischievous comic book tone to ease audiences into a borderline tasteless enterprise. This latest generation of goose-stepping morons is 75 years behind the times, with decades of propaganda (Chaplin’s “The Great Dictator” has been edited into a 10-minute celebration of Hitler) and stagnant technology keeping the populace in its place. While they’re draining the moon of Helium-3, top officials dream of one day reclaiming the Earth for their own, armed with a fleet of flying saucers. Devouring oily slices of “Dr. Strangelove,” Vuorensola manufactures his own satire of war movies, moving the period details and absurdity to the future, where Nazi rule has found a home again in the care of opportunistic global leaders.



“Iron Sky” is a large-scale film -- an amazing accomplishment when one considers its modest budget. Teeming with fantastic visual effects and a colossal appetite for combat, “Iron Sky” is tremendous fun to watch, boasting meticulous spaceship design (zeppelins in space!) and sharp costuming, creating a broad world of heroes and villains with imagination, style, and a heaping helping of greenscreen. While a few of the seams remain, Vuorensola pieces together a picture begging for screen inspection, which comes in handy when the feature aims to be funny. The ensemble is animated, but fail to provide the larger than life magnetism required for such broad material, while the screenplay makes room for tired movie references, including a recreation of Hitler’s meltdown from 2004’s “Downfall” -- already an exhausted meme. The Sarah Palin lampoon (she’s put an elliptical machine in the Oval Office) is equally moldy, dampening a pleasingly barbed political satire.



The last act of “Iron Sky” is devoted to warfare and noise, while the actual ending assumes a rather forbidding apocalyptic posture, exiting on a bizarrely unsettling note after 90 minutes of manic goofballery. The movie ends up feeling bipolar instead of consistent, with Vuorensola suddenly displaying bravery in a film of cheap shots and comedic dead ends. 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.

Starring: Julia Dietze, Peta Sergeant, Götz Otto, Udo Kier, Christopher Kirby, Kym Jackson
Director: Timo Vuorensola
