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.

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.

December 15, 2018
a gory throwback to '70s Nazispolitation films, although it doesn't have the conviction to truly follow through in its homage to that particularly sleazy strain of European trash cinema

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.

The movie's eventual shift into sci-fi territory, as a result, doesn't fare quite as well as one might've hoped...

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.
December 8, 2018
Vengeance is intoxicating but all-consuming, and Overlord highlights the dangers of resorting to our enemies' lows.

December 7, 2018
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.

Overlord is to fact as Churchill was to sobriety, or Trump to modesty.

December 3, 2018
Combines a straightforward complete-the-mission war pic with a Mad Nazi Scientist plot to rule the world movie.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

Mainstream schlock cinema at its finest.

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.
