The main characters included the loud Brooklyn guy who never stops shouting even though there is a squad of Nazis standing outside their door. There is so much emphasis on the main characters talking and building up their camaraderie that it reminds me of Biloxi Blues, especially the emphasis on the ethnic characters like the Brooklyn guy, the Jewish guy, the hard-core Anglo, the liberal photographer (Full Metal Jacket), and the soft-hearted black soldier.
As a buddy movie, it is mostly forced dialogue that is pretty annoying. I kept hoping the Brooklyn guy would get killed off, so his annoying fake Brooklyn accent would end. This is not a group of characters that you want to see again. There is way too much talking and arguing going on in this movie. At least 75% of the movie is talking. There is some good action, but it comes in small chunks. There is not much gore, and the Nazi zombies are hardly seen. As an action movie, Overlord is not anything I would waste my time seeing again.
