Storyline Heading
With only hours until D-Day, a team of American paratroopers drop into Nazi-occupied France to carry out a mission that's crucial to the invasion's success. Tasked with destroying a radio transmitter atop a fortified church, the desperate soldiers join forces with a young French villager to penetrate the walls and take down the tower. But, in a mysterious Nazi lab beneath the church, the outnumbered G.I.s come face-to-face with enemies unlike any the world has ever seen.

Action Mystery Sci-Fi - This is a WWII action adventure with a sci-fi horror twist. There are no big names in the cast. Constant language and often gruesome violence make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average "Overlord" is a simple mechanism to deliver squib packs and swear words, a function that the film's creators accomplish despite their otherwise unremarkable story's choppy pacing and general humorlessness....if I was still an easily-distracted youth, I might enjoy "Overlord,"...

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average Somehow, the momentum starts to slow down even as the mayhem ramps up, and the climactic boss battle almost feels like an afterthought; things start to devolve from creepy to cartoonish in record time.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average ...these zombies and their masters are so cartoonishly villainous that you may find yourself wishing they were a little more complex—a little more human. The film's chief pleasure, then, is its simplest: watching Americans send Nazis to their deaths.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 27 moviegoers:
TEENS: Two males loved "Overlord"and three enjoyed it very much. The lone females enjoyed it very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The one male and one female, both felt it was a "good/average" movie.
ADULTS: The male and female reviews are nearly identical. About half loved it with another 20% indicating they enjoyed it very much. Another 20%, or so, felt it was a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). Only about 10% rated it low, which is actually very good for this type of movie (horror type films usually have a higher percentage of low to very low reviews).
