The Reich strikes back!
In 1945, the remnants of the Third Reich decamped to a base on the dark side of the moon.
Now, it’s 2018 and an invading army of Nazi shock troops is about to launch an attack on Earth with the aim of yoking human slave labour to a Fourth Reich. And there’s worse – Sarah Palin is in the White House.
Finnish maverick Timo Vuorensola’s enjoyable sci-fi comedy revels in superior special effects - the swastika-shaped moon base and the ultimate Nazi doomsday weapon The Götterdämmerung are awesome creations – and a knowing if broad script.
Götz Otto – replendent in his ersatz Hugo Boss uniform and bearing a nice sardonic sneer - is well cast as the fanatically ambitious Nazi General Klaus Adler while Julia Dietze is just so as his blonde fiancée-turned-adversary Renate Richter.
However, what will impress audiences most are the first-class battle sequences featuring a splendidly retro Nazi attack force, including supercharged zeppelins, which takes the original German military hardware and gives it a neat yesteryear spin.
Impressively financed with an efficient social media campaign (10 percent of its budget came from online fundraising), it’s a stunning reminder that often less is more.
