Minor spoilers ahead. Finally caught up with this on Netflix as I had wanted to see it at the cinema. It was a fun horror/monster movie romp but it didn’t bring anything new to the genre. The set up of Chloe’s Aunt was a waste of time and it seemed that her story ended up on the cutting room floor, she was forgotten about until the Nazis killed her and you don’t even get to see that. Fun but ultimately forgettable film with decent special effects and an ok cast.
Really, **really** happy with how this one wound up. _Overlord_ is probably this year’s movie I most want to rewatch, was definitely one worth seeing on the big screen. I hope it inspires likeminded cinema in the near-future.
_Final rating:★★★½ – I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._
Coulda done with more horror, but, it is still good!
Entertaining movie that plays out the more fictional side of the Nazi experimentation. We all know it’s fact the Nazis during WWII were up to no good, including many extreme experiments using humans as lab rats, this movie takes it and runs with it into an entertaining horror/action flick about what strange discoveries the Germans may have had. It’s not as gory or as scary as one would hope for, I personally was hoping for something along the lines of John Carpenter’s “The Thing,” and while they did use mostly practical special effects, and while it is action packed, with a good story, decent characters, and some good horror moments, it definitely lacks enough to classify it mostly as an action thriller and not a horror. Take “Band of Brothers” and mix it with either “Blood Creek” or “Outpost” (both 2008). Crazy lab experiments, great action and intense scenes, some decent horror moments, but it was mostly just an action flick focused on getting the job done, could have been a lot more scary and effective, but still a decent and worth-while watch!
Definitely a few plot holes, like, what’s up with the Aunt? And plenty more, but if you’re just looking for a good popcorn flick, involving Nazis, experiments-gone-wrong, and WWII action, it’s an effective and fun movie.
The Most Expensive Nazisploitation Film Ever Made
This is not the first time when J. J. Abrams put the finances into the risky project (remember “Cloverfield”), but this is definitely a curious choice for such a filmmaker. “Overlord” is the rare hybrid of a WWII film and a zombie horror – kind of movies that were prosperous back in 1970s and early 1980s, but has been long gone since then. And even in those times most of them were cheap and cheesy exploitation films, full of gore and nudity. (And yes, lots of people nowadays will think not of grindhouse cinema, but rather of “Call Of Duty” or “Wolfenstein” game series, which is an obvious point of reference here.)
And “Overlord” nearly perfect in assembling those pieces of a Nazi zombie horror movies into one single story. The plot is simple, action-packed and has it all: lots of fighting, shootings, machine guns and flamethrowers. The characters are schematic, almost one-dimensional, because it’s not WWII drama, and that’s enough. The SFX are great, there’s a lot of blood and guts here, exactly what one can expect from a film which involves Nazis, experiments with (un)dead, and covert military operation.
However, there’s some minor but annoying mistakes in presentation of some important plot elements, which hard to left unnoticed. Perhaps the most striking example of such retroactive anti-militaristic message is when Cpl. Ford decides to stop Nazis once and for all near the end of the film: his attitude looks a bit anachronistic in 1940s and such views for an U.S. soldier were much more credible rather after Vietnam War than during the WWII. There’s also a very implausible fight between two main characters before the final onslaught, which looks ridiculous within the context of the upcoming Overlord operation.
But it all can easily be put aside, because “Overlord” is the Nazispoltation at its best: dark, bloody, action-driven horror about zombie soldiers trying to take over the world. Take it for what it is, and have fun.
