Overlord (DIR. Julius Avery)
American soldiers are dropped into German-occupied France and need to prepare for the D-Day invasion, but they find that the Germans are involved in some messed-up stuff.
Julius Avery’s Overlord is a war film lacking any nuance whatsoever. Of course, that becomes apparent early on because, despite the classifications of war and horror and sci-fi, this is a brainless action film through and through. And it’s a damn entertaining one too! Overlord has great effects, great kills and one of action cinema’s most badass women in recent years.
In short, turn off your brain and enjoy!
Overlord opens in theatres on Friday, November 9.
