Storyline

On the eve of D-Day, the 5th of June, 1944, several American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion's success: destroy a radio tower built in a little castle of an old French town that the Third Reich uses for communication between Berlin and Normandy beaches' bunkers. Due to the intense enemy fire, the planes are shot down and most soldiers die in the landing or are killed by the Nazis' night patrols after they taking land. However, a private named Ed Boyce survives to find Corporal Ford, a last-minute incorporation from Italy and a veteran expert in bombs and explosives, rogue sniper Tibbet, war photographer Chase, and finally private Dawson. After they watch the killing of their superior Sargeant Eldson by a Nazi night patrol, Ford turns in the leader of the group and they try to get the town with the tower in order to complete the mission. In the forest close to the town, almost arriving to it, they meet Chloe, a villager who ... Written by Chockys

Alternate Versions

After the film was given the restricted R18+ rating in Australia, Paramount Pictures decided to edit out almost 1 minute of footage to lessen the violence for the cinema version. The subsequent re-submission got the film a more accessible MA15+ rating. Although this version never ended up getting released due to Paramount Pictures changing their minds to instead give the original R18+ rated cut to cinemas. See more »

A fine mixture of action/war/horror that works just so well
9 November 2018 | by john-clarke-25337See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to see an advance screening of Overlord and really didn't know what to expect being that my only exposure to the film was a trailer at the screening of another film a few days before. I will confess to not being a great fan of the war genre and more leaning to the horror element the trailer suggested was contained. The opening sequences of the soldiers on the plane is absolutely awesome, the effects the acting were top draw and had me thinking maybe I should give war films a little more of my time. Its a dark film with a very clever plot and all the actors play their role brilliantly and are very believable. As I have said the war scenes are spectacular to look at and the horror scenes are not so over the top as to ruin the hard work that has come before it. In a very weird way the factors leading up to the horror scenes are believable and you can imagine that just maybe somewhere in a dark forest these things could actually be happening. Its a great film that doesn't take itself too seriously and is exactly what the trailer suggests, an action packed visual delight that deserves to be seen. My only concern is that it doesn't get ignored due it being released around the same time as Halloween and Bohemian Rhapsody as it truly deserves a platform of its own. Support this little gem you will not be disappointed
