20 years ago the Nazis attacked the earth from the moon in order to reach for world domination again. Now the earth is uninhabitable and only a few surviving humans have joined together to form a colony on the moon. But even here there is no security, because the moon threatens to break apart. Obi Washington (Lara Rossi), the daughter of James Washington and Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), could become the last hope for mankind if it succeeds in penetrating into the earth's interior. A new civilization could be built here. But a species has long since settled here that has controlled us unnoticed for centuries and is waiting to finally wipe out humanity forever…
After his no-budget film "Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning" has been viewed over 8 million times on the Internet, Finnish director Timo Vuorensola was able to realise his first feature film in 2012 with the help of film funding and a large-scale crowd funding campaign. The film was shot in Frankfurt, which was convincingly transformed into New York with the help of computer effects, and in Australia, where the numerous interior shots were taken. With a mixture of built sets and computer effects, "Iron Sky" was a handsome piece of science fiction satire that came up with many great ideas. The film then attracted a respectable 500,000 visitors to the cinemas in Germany and was also a bestseller on Blu-ray. No wonder Vuorensola soon thought about a sequel...
This time it was a bit easier to raise the money for the production. And so now with "Iron Sky: The coming Race" part 2 of the weird saga comes into our cinemas. You have to say: The film looks good. Vuorensola and his team prove impressively that you can create great effects on the screen even with a relatively small budget. And yes, in some moments this sequel is a lot of fun. The idea of a sect that has formed on the moon is really great - especially their version of the "Our Father". The script could have used much more satirical ideas like this. Because in other moments you can't get rid of the feeling that the movie takes itself more seriously than it actually is.
The staging seems a bit undecided, at least at times. Does the film now want to be an over-twisted satire and homage to trashy B-movies, or rather a big SciFi adventure. If the whole thing clearly tends towards the former, then the movie works quite well and also offers some good laughs. But when the humor pauses, the many weaknesses of the script and the direction become all too apparent. Despite a running time of just 90 minutes, this sequel seems surprisingly tough and almost boring. Without the effect of the new and surprising from which part 1 could still profit, "Iron Sky: The Coming Race" is only nice entertainment, which has a lot of potential, but rarely really exploits it. In the end, that's only enough for one: Worth seeing with some concessions!
