Iron Sky is about as depressingly on-the-nose as a self-aware pastiche can get. With a premise that essentially boils down to “Nazis on the moon”, it’s obvious how much it’s trying to fit into the “so bad it’s good” genre. But with its coarse attempts at edginess (the Nazis white up a black man!), social commentary (“All presidents who start a war in their first term get re-elected!” barks the Sarah Palin lookalike), and downright zaniness (after all, the core theme is “Nazis on the moon”, and there is essentially no plot or hook beyond this), Iron Sky largely comes across as boring and uninspired. Nothing is remotely as funny as it thinks it is, and it makes the entire film feel about ten times longer than it truly is. Iron Sky‘s desperate attempts to be so bad it’s good result in it simply being so bad, full stop.
