Variety
"'Overlord' works best as a patriotism booster shot — it’s 'Inglourious Basterds' without a swizzle of irony (...) It’s junk food patriotism — but there’s a grumbling hunger for it."  NEU

The Hollywood Reporter
"Horror fans should cheer, as will admirers of the ensemble's up-and-coming cast (...) Boyce and his comrades are engaging"  POS

"Are you in the mood for a blockbuster that you wished Paul Verhoeven had made in the Nineties? (...) We may have a late-autumn film for you (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

IndieWire
"Intense, ravishing, and surprisingly deep (...) The story juggles a surprising degree of sophistication with playful scares and tense ultra-violence"  POS

Bilge Ebiri
The New York Times
"A curiously undernourished story that at times feels like it’s setting up mysteries and subplots that never quite go anywhere (...) Avery deftly orchestrates some grisly, intense set pieces."  NEU

"'Overlord' admirably has something to say. Buried beneath the bloodshed and cast chemistry, the film is about how far we’re willing to go at war"  POS

Britt Hayes
Screen Crush
"[It] fails to deliver on nearly every level (...) As a piece of moral commentary cloaked in a sci-fi gimmick, 'Overlord' is uninspired. As an action thriller, it’s just aggressively boring."  NEG

"It’s a solid film that never reaches further than it has to, but if you’re looking for a Nazi-killing gore-fest, then you’re bound to find something to like here (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

"What could have been a rip-roaring, monster feature seems more interested in being a fast-paced action movie with suitably awesome imagery. For that alone, 'Overlord' is worth watching"  POS
