While Overlord's premise screams B-movie and the feature knows it, [director Julius] Avery doesn't handle the narrative in a simple and senseless manner.

Out of fear or sheer admiration, these images are going to stick with you.

In the end, Overlord offers what it promises, with nothing but pure entertainment in the style of a 60s genre film. [Full review in Spanish]

Overlord is a perfect example of great execution trumping originality.

Maybe the studio is to blame for wanting to reign in its filmmakers quite a bit. However, there's enough madness to keep any Nazi hater satiated.

Overlord is often an intense experience, even if the first act's startlingly visceral combat sequences are rather more terrifying than later horror elements.
December 11, 2018
The patience with which Overlord delays its monster reveal is impressive, albeit let down by how little they're then used for the remainder of the film.

Avery and company manage to maintain [an] E.C. Comics luridness in the tone ... and thanks to this, Overlord manages to [hit] that perfect sweet spot.

Vengeance is intoxicating but all-consuming, and Overlord highlights the dangers of resorting to our enemies' lows.

Julius Avery blends war movie with zombie horror to create a big, fun, action-splattered hybrid film that proposes how the Nazis were working on reanimating dead soldiers during the D-Day invasion. Think of it as Saving Private Ryan of the Living Dead.

OVERLORD is a goopy, oozy delight.
December 5, 2018
Overlord is perhaps the pleasantest surprise I've had at the movies all year. It's beautifully-crafted trash, a nutso concept treated with intelligence and respect.

Combines a straightforward complete-the-mission war pic with a Mad Nazi Scientist plot to rule the world movie.

It's a bloody good time, as along as students don't use it to cheat on their history test.

Overlord blends genre with remarkable efficiency and effectiveness. It's far too unsettling to be "fun" but the pace stays up, keeping the truly disturbing imagery from lingering and for that, I am truly grateful.

Overlord has another great virtue: it's a war movie... filmed brilliantly (the parachute jump), but very faithful to the rules of the genre. [Full review in Spanish]

Enjoyable...I didn't care about a single character in this movie, and I didn't care who got blown up...I didn't feel invested, but it was action-heavy enough and well-acted enough to appreciate...once it commits, it's really entertaining.

Overlord is a fun film. It's really well done, exciting, gruesome, and all of the things you were looking to see...it's tonally consistent with the trailers.

... a cracking yarn that meshes the war and horror genres and comes up with an absolute belter of a flick.
