Stick with Wolfenstein.

... takes forever and a day to get to the actual mad science'ing and it just didn't take it as far as I wanted it to.

Despite its excellent segue from one movie genre to another, it does not fully live up to its promise.

Midnight B-movie fans are the few people likely to enjoy this blood-soaked, zombie-filled version of Saving Private Ryan, as long as they don't go in expecting too much.

Nazi monsters vs. American GIs could be an interesting genre exercise, but Overlord is a clichéd mess that is often tedious and predictable, lacking in wit and imagination.

February 6, 2019
Its premise is battling the tone throughout, a fight that neither side ends up winning. A cacophonous, sporadically entertaining mess.

The climax was cool but ultimately...I would've loved just to see the soldiers going to war with some zombie creations out of the lab.

Overlord, in all its self-seriousness, has no real subtext it tries to tackle, or sense of importance that would elevate this sort of plot into A-movie status. So then why not embrace what it is?

November 13, 2018
Even with two-dimensional villains, a rote plot, and little in the way of invention, it's an original R-rated horror movie that tries something weird. That's got to count for something.

The moral lessons, let's call them that, are of a clumsy fool that borders on the immoral. [Full Review in Spanish]

November 8, 2018
Despite the talent at hand and the originality of the film, "Overlord" still registers as a missed opportunity. [Full Review in Spanish]
November 9, 2018
The film loses its initial force by stopping to explain nazism to millennials and simplifies the allied victory and underestimates the public it's trying to aim to. [Full Review in Spanish]

This gory B-movie initially masquerades as a war film, but Nazi-occupied France is simply a convenient setting.

November 15, 2018
Julius Avery directs this high-energy, low-imagination genre mashup, a combination of Inglourious Basterds and Planet Terror that is not nearly as fun as that description might imply.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
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.
September 23, 2018
As a piece of moral commentary cloaked in a sci-fi gimmick, Overlord is uninspired. As an action thriller, it's just aggressively boring.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Zombies. Nazis. Clichés. Insane violence. "Overlord" delivers a whole lot of much too much.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
November 9, 2018
A slick "Re-animating Private Ryan" mashup that grinds through it cliches at half-speed.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 8, 2018
It's oddly sloppy and unambitious, mistaking loud for really crazy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 12, 2018
Something of a missed opportunity for all.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
