Watch: Overlord 2018 123movies, Full Movie Online – 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 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 Sergeant Eldson by a Nazi night patrol, Ford becomes 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 they meet Chloe, a villager who assists the soldiers in her home with her elderly aunt and little brother Paul. But the mission gets complicated when, by accident, Boyce ends up inside the Nazi radio tower, only to find horrible secret experiments with human beings that could empower a victory for Hitler and would change the fate of the world forever. With D-Day approaching, Boyce and the others begin to realize there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation. They not only have to fight against soldiers to destroy the radio tower, but also against the results of the experiments to turn the entire place to ruins. All this before dawn and Hitler gets his Third Reich of a thousand years that he promised..

Really, **really** happy with how this one wound up. _Overlord_ is probably this year’s movie I most want to rewatch, was definitely one worth seeing on the big screen. I hope it inspires likeminded cinema in the near-future.
_Final rating:★★★½ – I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._
Minor spoilers ahead. Finally caught up with this on Netflix as I had wanted to see it at the cinema. It was a fun horror/monster movie romp but it didn’t bring anything new to the genre. The set up of Chloe’s Aunt was a waste of time and it seemed that her story ended up on the cutting room floor, she was forgotten about until the Nazis killed her and you don’t even get to see that. Fun but ultimately forgettable film with decent special effects and an ok cast.
A great blend of genres (each done well) – shame about the final 30 mins
If you want to go in to watching this film without seeing the trailer, then don’t read any reviews – including this one. There are no spoilers beyond what the trailer shows.
I make that opening claim because if you hadn’t seen the trailer, you wouldn’t know of the dual-genre nature of Overlord. The genre shift to full-blown ‘zombies-but-not-quite’ action comes after 75 minutes of truly brilliant wartime drama with some moderate scares. The opening scenes of the paratroopers entrance to the war-torn French countryside is a particular highlight for its chaotic, intense and disorientating depiction of what it must’ve been like for those who did the deed for real in WW2.
The horror element begins to build early on but is never an indication of the upcoming genre shift (if you’ve not seen the trailer, at least) until the point (From Dusk to Dawn style) where it’s made clear that we’re not in Kansas anymore. The only bummer I can think of is the film falls into the trap of a predictable final 30 minutes. With all the enjoyment had before then, it’s so disappointing to feel let down at the last hurdle.
The soundtrack is immense, the cinematography is brooding without being dark (a style which works for both of the film’s genres), and the CGI special effects are affectingly convincing. Don’t expect great things from the script (which includes several awful one-liner comebacks), but I think this film will go down as one of the great zombie films of recent years, and may even be noted for its even better turn as a war film.
Best quote: “What is this?!” – “Our greatest achievement. With it, we create super-Nazis; a thousand year army and it’s thousand year soldiers.”
Overlord = overhyped
I don’t know if the critics watched the same movie I did. This was a mediocre action movie, a mediocre horror movie, and a poor war movie. They went all out with the historical inaccuracies, so why not do it with a little humor? This movie took itself way too seriously. Watch it as a download.
