Unlike most other entries in this often low-budget subgenre, Overlord is not only comparatively well-funded, but it also works throughout as a pretty good WWII combat mission movie, albeit with some super-gory twists.
You might hope such a premise would license a wonderfully over-the-top movie, but...the splatter scenes in Julius Avery's film are pretty dull, seemingly designed to impress only young viewers who have never seen anything like them before.
Even though you won't find the events in this film in any history book, it is still well worth a view. Sometimes you just need to destress with some fictional monsters that distract you from the real monsters in our everyday lives.
Overlord is one hundred percent an Abrams title, which creates a daring hodgepodge between war movies and the zombie genre horror movies that have played so much in the last decade. [Full review in Spanish]
