For the first third of its 110-minute running time, the Overlord Full Movie latest film from J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot Productions plays like a typical World War II movie. After a squad of paratroopers gets shot down over Normandy on the night before D-Day, the survivors still intend to complete their mission of dismantling a German radio tower atop of a church. Once they arrive in the small French village that houses the Nazi base, however, Overlord veers into splatter-flick territory, revealing a Mengele-like experiment in reanimating the dead. The soldiers — with Jovan Adepo and Wyatt Russell at the helm — soon have to contend with sentient zombies, in addition to an already formidable German military.

Fortunately, Adepo, Russell, the rest of their platoon (including a brief yet effective appearance from Bokeem Woodbine), and a French ally (Mathilde Ollivier) imbue their roles with the fear and vulnerability necessary to transcend their archetypes. There isn’t much time to explore every as thoroughly as, say, Saving Private Ryan, The Thin Red Line, or Platoon, but we get just enough from everyone for their characters to be actual characters, not cartoons.
