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; Tibbet, a rogue sniper; Chase, a war photographer; and finally private Dawson. After they watch the killing of their superior Sargeant Eldson by a Nazi night patrol, Ford is the mission leader of the group and they try to get the town with the tower. Almost to the town they meet Chloe, a villager who assists the soldiers In her home with her elderly aunt & little brother, Paul.... Written by Chockys

Goofs

Soldiers of African heritage were not integrated with Caucasian units during World War II. This did not happen until July 26, 1948 when President Harry S. Truman signed Executive Order 9981, ending segregation in the armed forces, and not fully enforced until Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara issued Directive 5120.36 fifteen years later on July 26, 1963. See more »

Quotes

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. The subsequent re-submission got the film a more accessible MA15+ rating. It is believed that the film will be fully restored for its home entertainment release. 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
