#overlord “There are several cool moments in this film that feel borrowed from other films. This doesn’t diminish their enjoyability. Avery’s ability to mix sight and sound is jarringly good most of the time. Whether this can be replicated in a home theater depends on your system, The acting of Adepo and Russell push beyond the limits of their characters as presented in the script. The combination creates an enjoyable and fresh feeling film that treads delicately over occupied territory on its way to a brutal, but successful mission.”
This is the rare case where the tie in works for the right reasons.
