Overlord (18)

War, Horror, Drama

Horror film, set during World War II, in which US paratroopers discover the results of secret Nazi experiments.

The critical consensus

Overlord injects a healthy dose of schlock into familiar war-movie tropes to create an entertainingly grungy hybrid, but it never quite kicks into overdrive.

***(*)(*)Ben Travis, Empire Online, 05/11/2018

The flick may open with terrifying elegance, but by the end it has descended into a slab of horror schlock that plays more like an unrealized concept for a video game than a movie.

**(*)(*)(*)MaryAnn Johanson, The List, 05/11/2018

Gripping, blisteringly paced war film, somewhat undermined by its own promotional campaign.

****(*)Anton Bitel, Little White Lies, 06/11/2018

This bizarre and gruesome tale of an allied assault on a church in Nazi-occupied France leaves an unpleasant taste.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 07/11/2018

The problem here isn’t so much one of taste (or tastelessness), then, as of general incompetence.
