Abysmally bad, confused mess of a film
- Iron Sky: The Coming Race review by NW
I really enjoyed the original Iron Sky movie and even watched The Dictator's Cut.
The trailer for The Coming Race initially looked exciting and featured Jesus with uzis. Years later, the movie came out and it was a total mess. It was boring, lame and the Jesus scene had been cut. This was a particularly bad sequel and adds nothing whatsoever to the original film. No engaging characters, no plot twists or real surprises. It was akin to Land of the Lost (but minus the fun). The main actress looked like Vin Diesel and had no personality to speak of. The lead actor was a cliche Russian character who seemed to have recycled dialogue; he just kept on saying the same thing.

Finnish Sequel with Adolf Hitler Riding a T-Rex in Antarctica... Yep, that says it all.
- Iron Sky: The Coming Race review by PV
Anyone who has watched IRON SKY, the original, made by fanatical scifi gamers in Finland, who started making graphic novels, computer games and cheapo films in their bedroom and basements ('Star Wreck'), will know what to expect.
It is all utterly absurd. BUT so bad it's good in a way, and with better than usual CGI effects, eg the T-Rex which is of course ridden by Adolf Hitler...
Mrs Thatcher is there as an alien as is Steve Jobs as is Mark Zuckerberg, Stalin, most dictators from history, Osama Bin Laden, a pope et al.
Some funny gags about the old Nokia phones (I STILL HAVE ONE!) and more. Some funny, some not.
What amazes me is how so many people, fans, online gamers etc can put up so much money to make a sequel - the first Iron Sky was enough.
Watch BLOODSTORM (Nazis at the Centre of the Earth) to see Adolf Hitler (again, this time as a robot), and the conspiracy theory of the HOLLOW EARTH - all utter nonsense., The Germans explored Antarctica in 1938-39, the mountainous area Queen Maud Land between British and Norwegian claimed areas, because they wanted a base from which to get whale blubber to make the margerine the Germans ate loads of apparently. It was a total failure BUT from that, a conspiracy theory grew...
By the way, I used the subtitles for this movie and I do not know who did the subs, but they were certainly not a native English speaker - they often bear no relation to what characters are actually saying!

Iron Sky 2
- Iron Sky: The Coming Race review by OL
Total Rubbish. Written by Idiots for Idiots. Poorly constructed script. It would of been easier to use a script such as Nazis from Atlantis. Uses every conspiracy theory going. With 19th century Vrill beliefs, Hole in earth, Steve Jobs, Stalin. Hitler et al as aliens. The first film required an absence of common sense. This film requires requires an absense of intellect.
