Overlord is essentially a B-movie with a Hollywood budget, great action, and a TON of gore. I really enjoyed this movie quite a bit, especially in the opening scene, which was shot very well. This movie is an action-horror set during World War II when a bunch of American Soldiers discover that the Germans are up to something sinister in one of their bases, and that is all I will say about the plot. It's awesome to watch. The films cast doesn't consist of any A-Listers or Superstars, but has a lot of recognizable faces such as Wyatt Russell, (who's performance reminded me a lot of his dad Kurt in The Thing), Pilous Asbaek and Jacob Anderson of Game of Thrones fame, John Magaro and Bokeem Woodbine, and newcomers Jovan Adepo and Mathilde Olliver as the leads. To sum it up, Overlord is the type of movie that is going to develop a fanbase years from now, it is very fun and will satisfy those both looking for intense action and gory horror, and I can easily recommend this. We can all thank Julius Avery for directing such a fun movie and J.J Abrhams for deciding to NOT turn this film into a Cloverfield movie.

The Synopsis for Overlord (2018) 720p
On the eve of D-Day, the 5th of June, 1944, several American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion's success: destroy a radio tower built in a little castle of an old French town that the Third Reich uses for communication between Berlin and Normandy beaches' bunkers. Due to the intense enemy fire, the planes are shot down and most soldiers die in the landing or are killed by the Nazis' night patrols after they taking land. However, a private named Ed Boyce survives to find Corporal Ford, a last-minute incorporation from Italy and a veteran expert in bombs and explosives, rogue sniper Tibbet, war photographer Chase, and finally private Dawson. After they watch the killing of their superior Sargeant Eldson by a Nazi night patrol, Ford turns in the leader of the group and they try to get the town with the tower in order to complete the mission. In the forest close to the town, almost arriving to it, they meet Chloe, a villager who ...

Going to turn into a Cult ClassicReviewed byjrugg19Vote: 8/10
Fun war movie with a horror twist. On its face, it is a procedural military mission - get in and do the thing to support the impending Allied invasion. The horror twist comes when the soldiers discover some strange stuff happening in the village. Medical experiments are being performed to transform normal humans into super soldiers. The mission now becomes twofold: destroy the tower and destroy the lab! Nothing particularly special or innovative about the story, but it was wildly entertaining and enjoyable. Very exciting edge-of-your-seat action scenes, well-performed roles, top-notch special effects, and solid jump scares. We watched it in the Dolby theater at AMC Metreon in SF. It was super loud and the place was rocking!
Generic concept. Numerous plot holes. Dull, cardboard cut-out characters. Increasingly unrealistic and unbelievable behaviour from protagonists and antagonists alike. Tropes piled upon stereotypes piled upon predictable story elements randomly picked from a script writer's recycle bin
The best I can say about this movie is that it opened well. I absolutely loved the establishing scene. Sadly, it crashed shortly afterwards, and never recovered.
I rate Overlord at 13.32 on the Haglee Scale, which works out as a lazy 4/10 on IMDB.
As an alternative I strongly recommend the excellent Frankenstajnova vojska, which had a tiny budget that probably wouldn't even cover coffee for the film crew on the set of Overlord.
This is an absolutely cracking little indie flick, with 100% practical effects and a whole lot of heart. It's copped a lot of undeserved abuse on IMDB, but I give it a solid 26.64 on the Haglee Scale (8/10 on IMDB).
