Overlord Reviews

November 13, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
November 9, 2018
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.
November 9, 2018
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.
November 9, 2018
A simple mechanism to deliver squib packs and swear words.

November 9, 2018
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.
November 9, 2018
A surprisingly well-made mash-up of old-fashion war movie tropes and proudly disgusting horror-flick shocks. It's a ton of fun.

November 9, 2018
By the end, Overlord feels, if not greater than the sum of its Frankensteined parts, at least a monster worth mashing.

For anyone who ever wished "Saving Private Ryan" were more of a B-movie splatterfest, "Overlord" is the movie for you.
November 8, 2018
Overlord leaves a wealth of possibilities unmined. One imagines it was more compelling as pitch than finished product.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
November 8, 2018
Overlord has a bit of a video-game feel at times, though that just adds to the overall sense of pulpy, gory fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
November 8, 2018
Don't be fooled by its B-movie trappings: Amid all the carnage, Overlord has more to say than you might think.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 8, 2018
Are you in the mood for a blockbuster that you wished Paul Verhoeven had made in the '90s, injected with the blood of '70s exploitation B movies?

November 8, 2018
Avery deftly orchestrates some grisly, intense set pieces. He delivers on the thrills, even if the story leaves something to be desired.
November 8, 2018
Zombies. Nazis. Clichés. Insane violence. "Overlord" delivers a whole lot of much too much.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
November 5, 2018
"Overlord" works best as a patriotism booster shot - it's "Inglourious Basterds" without a swizzle of irony.
Full Review | Original Score: C+

"Overlord" manages to satisfy expectations of pure escapism even as it digs deeper, and it's a welcome alternative to so many movies that don't even try.
