It's finally here. The much anticipated indie sf dark comedy Iron Sky has dropped down from the far side of the moon and landed on our screens. The wait was well worth it and this grimmly satrical little gem is guaranteed to be a fan favorite. Brought to us by the same irreverent Finns behind the standout fan flick, Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning, Iron Sky displays the same top-notch SFX and biting humor you'd expect. This trippy mix of moon Nazis, flying saucers, a wisecracking protagonist, political shenanigans, a cruel and vicious antagonist, and a capable and sexy female lead is rich with sardonic humor. Although never taking itself too seriously it also manages to subltly make an important political point by highliting the evils of nationalism. While the film isn't likely to win the plaudits of the velevet rope film critics it's sure to win a place in every fen's heat. It's wicked humor puts it in the ranks of such classic dark satires as A Boy and His Dog (1974), Delicatessen (1991), and Idiocracy (2006). In short, Iron Sky is an instant cult classic.
