So, I saw Iron Sky today with some friends. To be honest, from the theaterical trailer I had kind of negative expectations from the movie, with the trailer showing it to be light/kind of campy comedy. The movie didn’t disappoint though, quite the opposite.
The movie itself is far from being just light comedy, mixing somewhat serious tones with sci-fi action and darker tones of comedy, although with a pinch of light comedy blended in. I really liked the movie.
I just don’t really have that much to say about it, apart from recommending everyone to go and see it and throw whatever expectations you have away and just watch it as what it is; A Comedy/Action/Sci-fi movie with good writing, excellent acting and, although having a kind of cliché idea as the base, working it all out really well. The soundtrack of the movie is top-notch, too.
I kind of almost hope the movie was a bit longer, since there is one thing that rather vexed me in it. The whole invasion part they make out to be a big thing/part/deal both in trailer(s) and in the movie, ends up taking rather small part, with the battles being very brief encounters and then the movie veers away from it alltogether. You never really see it having any big effect on anything, nor do you see ground troops battling over cities, which is kind of what I wanted to see.
Anyway, all in all, good movie, I recommend seeing it. If you’re unsure on whether or not the movie will be released in Theaters in wherever you live, you can check here for more detailed information.
