OVER­LORD (R18+) This means war, but not as you know it, US, 108 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Flicks -

Put Sav­ing Pri­vate Ryan in a blender with In­glo­ri­ous Bas­terds. Now add some Nazi zom­bies. Voila! You have just made your­self a movie as gory, funny, gru­elling and flat-out crazy as Over­lord. The set­ting is Ger­manoc­cu­pied France, just hours ahead of the D-Day land­ing. A select squad of US sol­diers is tasked with tak­ing out a radio trans­mit­ter that could prove the dif­fer­ence be­tween suc­cess and fail­ure for the Al­lied forces. Lit­tle do they know that the church in which the equip­ment is housed is also home base for a phantom en­emy army of un­dead mu­tants. A movie that keeps go­ing too far, yet keeps stay­ing the dis­tance.
