Reviews: Overlord (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: A surprisingly tight, tense, and efficient action-horror hybrid that nails so many of the storytelling fundamentals that most modern blockbusters can learn from.
  • [New] | Moises Duarte @ High-Def Digest.com
    • Excerpt: As silly as the premise of the Third Reich creating an army of zombies is, Overlord is a surprisingly fun horror combat flick from J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot Productions. Part of its success is director Julius Avery making the absurdity and explosive action feel much like a first-person shooter video game without actually imitating any known source.

  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: This Nazis-with-supernatural-weapons horror schlock drags its feet getting to its fantastical elements and then does absolutely nothing interesting with them, just wallows in dull, rote gore and grue.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: A glorified B-movie with solid production values, “Overlord” makes a promise it can keep: it’s an unapologetically R-rated genre mash-up that entertains while it lasts.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Think Inglorious Basterds-lite by way of Re-Animator. It’s bloody, it’s mean, the Nazis get theirs, and though it’s not something to ever think of again, it’s a damn fine dip into throwback exploitation.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: Nazi exploitation film you’re looking for.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: This is genre-bending at its finest when it comes to B-movies with A-quality production value, and I applaud the work done to make a killer war/action/horror flick with a pulse.
  • Scott Phillips @ Timed Edition
  • Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
    • Excerpt: Thrilling from start to finish, ‘Overlord’ is an action-packed bloodfest that works both as a war film and a zombie film.
