IRON SKY 2 : THE COMING RACE - UK BD review

Things are about to get Nazi again in the outrageous sequel IRON SKY 2 : THE COMING RACE, which is out now in the UK on BD, DVD and Digital.

Set 20 years after the events of the original film, the former Nazi moonbase is now refuge to survivors of the Nuclear war that took place on Earth following the attempted invasion.

With the base falling apart, they learn of a substance powering a secret underworld back on Earth that can help them rebuild and repair their base. And so a small group. lead by Obi Washington (Lara Rossi - TV's Crossing Lines), the daughter of James Washington from the first film, head to Earth to find this secret underworld and bring back this substance so they can save whats left of humanity.

But first they will have to fight past dinosaurs, shape changing lizards and even Adolf Hitler and countless other historical tyrants (inlcuding Stalin and Bin Laden) in order to obtain it.

Extremely tongue in cheek, this clearly borrows a few ideas from the old Amicus film "At The Earths Core" and I really enjoyed it. Yes, its more of a goofy comedy than a science fiction film, but I thought it was great fun.

Horror veteran Udo Kier returns in a dual role, playing Adolf Hitler as well as reprising his character of the Space Fuhrer from before. Also returning is Stephanie Paul as the Sarah Palin lookalike and Julie Deitze as Renate. Comedian Tom Green also pops up as an evangelical preacher, whose followers worship Apple boss Steve Jobs of all people.

If you didn't like the first film, then this might not be your cup of tea. But as a huge fan of the original, I loved it!!!

The review copy I viewed did not contain any suplemental features. No idea if the release copy will contain any extras.
