Synopsis: Twenty years after the events of Iron Sky, the former Nazi Moonbase has become the last refuge of mankind. Earth was devastated by a nuclear war but buried deep under the wasteland lies a power that could save the last of humanity or destroy it once and for all. The truth behind the creation of mankind will be revealed when an old enemy leads our heroes on an adventure into the Hollow Earth. To save humanity they must fight the Vril, an ancient shapeshifting reptilian race and their army of dinosaurs.
I hadn’t seen the first movie, but this second installment introduced me to Nazis on the moon, spaceships and dinosaurs. Which was an odd combo but hey, I rolled with it.
The plot to the movie is a bit of a mess and I found myself confused or lost at some points, I don’t know if it was bad writing or I just need to watch the first film? I know it was crowd funded and the budget was around 20million. Saying that though the fight scenes were pretty cool and choreographed well and the special effects were pretty cool, which caught me by surprise. Usually when a B- movie features Dinosaurs for instance you end up with early ropey playstation kind of CGI. Not here though, the special effects are all very impressive.
Notable bad guy actor Udo Kier was on hand to play Hitler and he, as always is very watchable and turns on a good performance.
Overall I would say give it watch, a little bit ropey at points but I enjoyed what I saw and the fights and Special effects were enough to keep me entertained, and we get to see Hitler ride on the back of a dinosaur.
