    Marginally more inspired and certainly more likable than Snakes on a Plane or The Human Centipede as net-spawned exploitation fodder goes, but you can safely wait for the DVD.

    It's not terrible, by any means: just not nearly as funny or cruel as its killer premise suggests.

    In space, no one can hear you laugh either.

    It's Nazis from space. Cult movie fans will basically know what to expect. It's just a shame it couldn't have been a bit better.

    To its credit, while routinely stupid, it is playfully so - and it gets over the line through sheer force of charm. A "triumph of the will", if you catch our drift. (Sorry.)

    Shock horror: hilariously terrible-sounding movie ends up being nowhere near as fun as you might hope. This does not bode well for my time-travelling monkey idea.

    Great idea, lousy execution: "Iron Sky" boasts one of the zaniest premises in recent memory, and somehow manages to squander most of its potential.

    The film hasn't the budget to match its dizzying concept, nor the wit to fill the gaps between.

    Despite some ill-advised turns of tonality, Iron Sky remains intriguing, submitting a lively sci-fi vision with a pronounced historical playfulness, keeping the feature eager to please and out to awe.

    History tells us that you can't fake trash classics and you can't manufacture a cult.

    The jokes are spasmodic, as satirically weightless as playing golf on the moon.

    Re-watch the teaser trailer, skip the final production.

    A space-ploitation brain fart.

    Nazis on the moon! What could be more brilliantly bonkers than the lunatic premise of satirical sci-fi action comedy Iron Sky? Sadly, Finnish director Timo Vuorensola fails to make the most of his conceit.

    The space battle scenes are impressive, Julia Dietze is sexy and demure as the Nazi schoolteacher sent to Earth and there are genuinely funny moments.

    Stylishly made with some terrific effects, Iron Sky also draws on everything from Star Wars to Dr Strangelove, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and a Sarah Palin-style US President in Stephanie Paul...

    Completely fails to deliver on its basic premise and is ultimately disappointing, thanks to a lazy script, poor performances and ham-fisted direction.

    Balls, that core factor found in the best political satires, is what Iron Sky is lacking.

    Let's face it: it's Nazis from the Moon invading Earth in flying saucers, if you're expecting anything other than abject absurdity, you're in the wrong movie.

    Tries to present itself as a comedy with some elements of satire, but it's a complete misfire dragged down by a strange blend of Grindhouse cinema that takes itself too seriously.
