Movie Info

With only hours until D-Day, a team of American paratroopers drop into Nazi-occupied France to carry out a mission that's crucial to the invasion's success. Tasked with destroying a radio transmitter atop a fortified church, the desperate soldiers join forces with a young French villager to penetrate the walls and take down the tower. But, in a mysterious Nazi lab beneath the church, the outnumbered G.I.s come face-to-face with enemies unlike any the world has ever seen. From producer J.J. Abrams, Overlord is a thrilling, pulse-pounding action adventure with a twist.

It's reasonably good, creepy fun, provided you're not troubled by fleeting, uncomfortable thoughts like "Hey, that screaming bloodthirsty mutant monster could theoretically be a reanimated Anne Frank."

If anyone ever wished "Saving Private Ryan" were more of a B-movie splatterfest, "Overlord" is the movie for you.

Nov 9, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Overlord's problem is that it doesn't seem terribly interested in showing us who its villains are, and thus significantly mutes the satisfaction of watching them get flamethrowered to death.

The procedure isn't a complete success, but the movie wins a few battles in terms of its premise, energy and style, if not the entire war.

A simple mechanism to deliver squib packs and swear words.

Nov 9, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The angles are dynamic and jagged, framing the action for maximum shock value. It's as though the design philosophy for Overlord was to try to get banned in the 1950s, and it works.
