Nazis have always been one of the favorite villains in fun and entertainment-oriented movies, you can ask Indiana Jones about that. But in the last decade, Hitler’s army has been back in movies placed in the current times. A raising of social-political groups of people following the most extreme right-wing ideology? Well, yes sometimes, but we’re not talking about those sort of political dramas. We’re talking about laughs, surrealism, and weird stories! First, we got Dead Snow (2009) where a horde of zombie Nazis was after the gold they stole in WWII, then in Iron Sky (2012), the Nazis came back from the dark side of the moon with their fancy high technology space ships. And, now, be ready because our little infamous friends are coming right from the ice and the sea in Sky Sharks (2020).
75 years after World War II, an arctic research team discovers the Himmelsfaust, a colossal Nazi Warship thought to be long lost. Within they find Third Reich’s base for a weapon like no other: Sky Sharks. Jet-propelled, artillery-equipped, aeronautical, and manned by an army of undead elite Nazi soldiers, these flying beasts were created to prevent the downfall of the Third Reich. But now they seek revenge and claim their final victory – taking down the whole world with them in the process if they can.
