The plot gets wackier when we find out that the group are in fact tricked into the past whilst on a routine puma-catching mission in the Australian outback. The 25th Reich is supposedly harking back to the work of Fuller, Pal and Howard Hawks but unfortunately it absolutely does not make the grade either as an homage to those directors or as comedy-Science Fiction in its own right. Trying to recreate the charm of 1950s B-movies it lacks excitement, thrills, and laughs and fails to deliver on what is actually a humorous concept.
Whilst the audience may not be expecting rounded characters in this type of thing, those on show are still terribly poor and are not helped by accents less convincing than the effects. Then there are the consistent botched attempts at humour (a rock the shape of a phallus anyone?) and an incident of sexual violence that does not need to be there for any reason whatsoever.
The 25th Reich's central plot does not even reach a half-way satisfying conclusion as the final moments, now taking place in the year 2243, see the giant-robot-spider-Nazi army (yes, there are giant-robot-spider-Nazis) departing for their next campaign in the sequel: The War with God. If said deity had any compassion, he'd have restricted this to a single film, but in the word's of Knobeloch's Captain O'Brian, "God's absent without leave, Sergeant, or don't you watch the newsreels?"
