Empire - 04/01/2008 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t seamlessly blends genuine World War II footage with a fictional cast of tommies-in-training, simultaneously creating a documentary where the characters are 'fictional,' and a war movie where the 'action is real."
Shot in 1975, OVERLORD is a little-seen drama about a soldier going off to fight in World War II. Director Stuart Cooper utilizes real footage from the battle itself to add a strong dose of realism to the movie.
