No, this was made by Blind Spot Pictures and is the second 'official' film from Timo Vuorensola and Samuli Torssonen.

Blind Spot appear to focus on producing independent films.

Its not, Vuorensola and Torssonen have been aiming to make this since they finished their first work, Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning back in 06. (Star Wreck itself marking their first 'professional film')

Quality is partly dependent on the source and which version of the trailer this is. If its one of the early ones, then I wouldn't expect quality to be the best in the world (especially since it would be five or six years old.)

This isn't Hollywood made, the production company (who only came on very recently if I remember) is Finnish based.



On an interesting (to me) note, Iron Sky has a budget of about 7.5 million Euros, over half of which was obtained purely through donations. They have been filming for the better part of the last five years, stopping when the money ran out. Iron Sky was, until Blind Spot, going to be entirely budgeted on supporter money regardless of how long it took.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

It doesn't have to be taken seriously. As with all cinema, you're supposed to grant freedom of imagination to the story. If the film achieves what the director was looking for, then there's a case to argue that it's a good film.

It looks like B-movie at its best, to me.

Then again, I enjoyed Six String Samurai... It was basically Fallout NV the film...

All of this has happened before.

I really want to see it. But then I have an odd fascination with Nazi related films.

Havent some of you seen Star Wreck??? Thought everyone seen that at some point. Parody at its best, seems some people cant tell difference between independent moviemakers and production studios obviously.

A lot of people don't get that when you watch or read fiction, you grant the author/director suspense of your disbelief. If you don't, then you go into every single movie expecting it to be realistic in some way.

After watching the trailer, I don't see what looks so shitty about this movie. It doesn't look cheap or tacky. It looks very cheesy - but so did Starship Troopers, and that was an awesome film.

Starship Troopers was cheese at it absolute worse, complete disregard for the original source material and when it was made they made it with a serious mind and were not set out to make a joke of it.

This I see the goofyness and now I am peaked. An old friend and I use to say one thing before went watched a movie that was totally stupid and all we would say is we know this is gonna be stupid and completly dumb and going in with that mind set we would actually enjoy the movie for what it was completely stupid.

^ exactly.

It has Sarah Palin - one of the most hateful people to have ever lived - as the president of the US. How seriously can it be taken, exactly? Not at all.
