The movie looks amazing visually and the opening scene is very intense and pulls you in to the story. However, after that initial scene, I felt like the movie was missing something. This is not to say that the movie became bad after the first scene, but the beginning set a higher expectation for the rest of the film. I found the characters likeable and the story unique. I hope to see a sequel where they can maybe carry the same intensity and emotion from that initial scene throughout most of the movie.
About the actual physical product itself, the case came broken in a weird spot and it won't close properly, this is not that much of an issue because it came with a slip cover. It is worth pointing out that these cases are a bit cheap, but this is a problem with all 4k Blu Ray cases and not an isolated issue with this movie.
This movie had me jumping all over my seat great movie especially if you have a Dolby atmos system . Aww man the sound effects are everywhere. You never know what is coming next. This movie is a scary - thriller if that is a category. Definitely worth the price of admission
This flick threw me for a loop. Imagine if you will seeing elements
of the Dirty Dozen Meets Frankenstein. Non-stop action , gory scenes and evil scientists labs (AND) the twisted experiments
they're spewing out to an unsuspecting public. A HIDDEN GEM
that should've gotten more golden receipts at the box office.......

Actually a very good movie.
I went into this movie with tempered expectations. However, left genuinely impressed.
The story itself is rather straight forward; nothing too complex. That's okay for a movie like this. If you don't mind the blood/gore and occasional tension, then you'll have no problem watching this.
Where this movie REALLY shines however, is in its A/V department. The 4K UHD disc provides exceptional video clarity and detail. Colors pop out when they need too, nice rich blacks that aren't washed out. Video - 5/5.
Audio - is on an entirely different world. The LFE especially is particularly chest pounding and deep. Atmos and surround effects are detailed and well balanced with voice/dialogue crystal clear and easy to understand.
I highly, highly recommend this movie.
Opening scene pulls you into the story right away June 5th 1944 paratroopers drop behind enemy lines Into a occupied french village Theres underground labs, sinister experiments and their outnumbered with deadly super-soldiers trying kill them

Here’s the thing about Overlord: I saw the trailer so many times I felt like I knew the movie back to front before I even walked in. It was one of those things where I’d notice something different or pick up on something new every time I saw the trailer to the point that when I realized the actual feature was opening this weekend it wasn’t that I didn’t necessarily care to see it, but I definitely felt indifferent about buying a ticket to a movie I didn’t expect to gain anything more from that I hadn’t already been conditioned to expect from the trailer. I tell this aspect of the story to lend a little perspective on why Overlord then ultimately came to be something of a pleasant surprise. In expecting a certain level of craft, care, and creativity I low-balled my expectations and was more than happy to find out I was wrong when the film kicked off and immediately kicked into high gear with a level of energy that was infectious. Stranger even, the opening of the film is the same scene that opens the trailer, but while there is the expectation of this being a full feature rather than a short preview there is also something to the altered pacing, musical accompaniment, and/or character dynamics that immediately plays into the level of investment one is willing to give no matter how much they think they know. This is a long way of getting around to saying that, despite the initial indifference through which it had to battle, Overlord is a movie that does very well at what it's built to do. It’s not an exceptional film that says something new or even anything terribly interesting about life or the psychology each of us project on its meaning, but as a movie that sets out to combine the terror of war with the terror of a zombie apocalypse and roll those into a somewhat hackneyed, but fully aware camp fest-Overlord accomplishes everything it could hope to and then some.
