Overlord wasn’t bad; it wasn’t great but it definitely wasn’t bad. At moments it bordered on campy, and then would flow back into a shoot ’em up thriller. It reminded me of the video games my husband plays. It has that type of feel, not quite real, but with a storyline you hope ends up with the good guys winning.
The thing that jumped out at me the most was the blood and gore. They did a bang-up job on making things look really creepy. Once you get to see the supposed zombies, you’ll understand. The way they look — and for sure the way they move. That was impressive.
As long as I stay in the mindset of this being borderline campy, I enjoyed it. The first half of the movie really drew me in, but they kind of lost my attention towards the end. There was way too much time spent on loud explosions and useless gore. If they could have thrown in a little more story and less action I would have scored it better.
I don’t know that I’ll watch it again, but I at least don’t feel cheated out of my time and money. This movie might just make it into a date night movie category. The guys will enjoy the action and violence, and the girls will enjoy pretending to be scared and hiding in their dates’ necks. That’s a win-win situation.
About The Peetimes: This is an action-packed movie. I tried to choose Peetimes that kept you from missing any of the ‘wow’ moment scenes. I recommend using the 1st Peetime. The 2nd Peetime is short and involves some action.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Overlord. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.) We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, 1917, and Jumanji: The Next Level, etc. You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.
RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
