I Ron Sky

Nazi's on the Moon! Yeah?

Um... I'm going with 'no'. It's like they had this great set up, but didn't know what to do with it. Were they going for a comedy? Because it wasn't that funny. And if it wasn't comedy, I'm not sure what it was.

In 2018, two astronauts find a Nazi base on the moon, and one is taken captive. A black man, so there's the first humour! A Negro vs the Nazis! Nope. And then the Nazis come to Earth to get a decent computer, only to join with the President of the Americas, because America is just like the Nazis! Get it! GET IT!!! Really, the movie tries to make this point, but doesn't really get that working either. [To be honest, it was when they ripped off Downfall Hitler that I knew there was serious problems, and they make plenty of other references too.]

Even the giant space battle didn't inspire excitement. What does it take for that to fail? There was no credible threat, and everything was treated as a joke, so I couldn't take any of it seriously either.

This should have been far better than it was...
