'Iron Sky' (2012) review: Commendable, fun, and horribly good

That there is enough. The review has just written itself.

I got a chance to see a (very) early screening of this a few months back at the Kapow! Comic Convention, but had a chance to see it recently and decided it needed a review.

Before that though, let me give you a little backstory of the screening. The time slot it had been allotted at the convention was titled 'Movie X', an anonymous film that was speculated to be The Amazing Spider-Man, TED, even The Dark Knight Rises. Nobody in the audience knew anything until Iron Sky actually began.

You can imagine everybody's disbelief when they realised it was none of the films they had hoped for. People began walking out. Which was rude. Myself and friend, Muni, decided to continue watching though, as we're not culturally ignorant.

That phrase probably doesn't apply here, but it sounds right.

So with half an auditorium and some willing filmgoers, we were in for quite a treat.

Iron Sky is a film that isn't meant to be taken too seriously, and is partly the reason why it works so perfectly.

The premise of the film is hilarious albeit flawed, but like I said, it's a fun film.

It went down a hit with the audience(with the exception of those who walked out), as it was clear from the very loving round of applause shared throughout the auditorium that these people can appreciate a little satire.

Iron Sky's humourous, not-so-serious disposition made it a great film to watch, and the fact that it still managed to be quite a solid film and not take itself seriously was quite admirable.

Though it wasn't the most impressive film overall, it was still a good bit of fun.
