Twenty years after the events of Iron Sky, the former Nazi Moonbase has become the last refuge of mankind. Earth was devastated by a nuclear war, but buried deep under the wasteland lies a power that could save the last of humanity - or destroy it once and for all. The truth behind the creation of mankind will be revealed when an old enemy leads our heroes on an adventure into the Hollow Earth. To save humanity they must fight the Vril, an ancient shapeshifting reptilian race and their army of dinosaurs.

Did not realize this movie was released this year! Thought it was a little older. Also released 7 years after the original film but set 20 years after the events in that movie. The less than stellar quality of this “new” DVD is another reason I’m wary of buying DVDs (not that I’m buying DVDs these days but the compression and probably cheap production makes the PQ look terrible on my HDTV).
The movie isn’t very good. Feels more like a VFX reel even tho I don’t think any of the CG is better than the first film. Some of it here looks worse. Maybe a budget thing? The movie plays like a lot of the cheapo action sci-fi flicks from the mid to late 80s but w/the layer of modern CG. Meaning it’s rather dull. The novelty is gone and also is the conflict with the nazi regime. Instead it’s about a holy grail that can heal, make ppl younger and stronger but I guess also turn them into dinosaur hybrids? It’s weird. It’s not good.
Everything clever or politically on point from the first movie is absent here. Nothing is fun or funny. Udo Kier plays two roles, his returning nazi commander and hitler. It’s just not good. And it doesn’t look good on DVD and the DVD has no extras unlike the previous film. Disappointment overall.
