This is a very dark film about Nazi experimentation and zombies. Very graphic. We had to shut it off.

The portion of the movie where they were being deployed into battle actually scared me more than the rest of the movie. JFC, the horrors of war cannot be overstated. Oh and killing Nazi’s gets an A++. Don’t forget that readers, Nazi’s and other white supreme people do not get a free pass, they’re monsters, that is part of the allegory of the plot no less. Fascism comes for everybody if left unchecked: aka peaceful countryside french town folk. So if this gets flagged, consider the person who was unhappy with my comment here, they might be perpetuating other forms of hate.

Very gory, but not very good. Interesting concept but too much poetic license taken to imperil the good guys, especially with the obligatory little kid who keeps wandering into harms way.

Cliches abound and fun is thin on the ground. Not clever enough to be witty; not dumb enough to be dumb fun. Kinda boring as a result.

This fast paced action war film's opening scene reminded me of the just as graphic opening scene of the 1998 film, Saving Private Ryan, but in the air! Showing the horrors of war, it opens up with a U.S paratrooper etching the date of June 4th, 1944, into the inside frame of the plane heading over France, during an air raid. Ironically I happen to be writing this review on the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, June 6th, 2019!
This war/horror film, is largely well acted, with some script flaws, however overall I was impressed with this overly dramatic and somewhat gory film by director Julius Avery, and producer, J.J. Abrams (Lost: 2004 -2010; Star Trek Beyond: 2016; Mission Impossible: Fallout: 2018).
No DVD extras on this inaccurate but entertaining film, ending two days later after the "mission" was completed, on D-Day.
Many "unknown" actors with some "known" actors, with a women and child carrying their roles well.

I knew this movie was about world war II, but I was surprised how much I enjoyed the action and plot.

Although the movie may not have been historical accurate I found the story line to be interesting on a fiction level. Not a great movie but interesting. Over all the acting was not all that bad and I liked the way the movie started with planes being shot out of the air and paratroopers jumping out of planes that are falling apart around them. The movie does get a little ridicules near the end.

The US Army was not integrated until the Korean War. Negro troops did not serve with enlisted whites.
But George W. Bush and his henchmen would be delighted with the torture carried out by US troops.

This movie was better than I expected but because it is a war movie there is much killing.

pretty good world war two movie with a twist of exsparamental super soldier serum used on the dead and living to make soldiers super human but unstable with rage and strangth kind of like serum they used to make capton amarica but far worse side effects lolll watch it to see

WWII and zombies sounded pretty good. The movie is not quite that good. Just good. Maybe fair. Not the best zombie movie I've seen and certainly not the best (or worst) WWII movie. Get some chips and give it a go if your into this sort of thing.

A string of 1950's clichés, that were clichés even then. Question. Where does a French kid get a 2000 era baseball? If you're drunk and have nothing left on the PVR, this at 2X
normal might get you through another 30 minutes or so of your lackluster life, if you can call it that. Imagine people actually spent money to make this thing. Wow.

Wyatt Russell, son of Kurt Russell is great as the Man who bars the gate, keeping the enemy forever at bay. It is fun to watch. Don't take the horror seriously, but the fighting is real, that part is true. we have the jewish kid and the boy from Brooklyn who survive. plus the one who did not know if he could kill. just enjoy.

Very gruesome but entertaining WWII-set horror film. I liked the characters and it definitely had some good scares.

just kind of a fun, entertaining WW II zombie-ish type romp, don't think too hard about it and you'll be good

As a WWII movie (I've seen almost all of them from propaganda films to big budget sagas) this one is pretty good. As a horror film, it is just okay. It was fun to watch and I suggest you make popcorn before you start it.

"Overlord" is awesome. So, this must be how captain America was created. At least the nazi exprerirents to create human with supernatural abilities is revealed here. Wished they put more humor into this movie, that would make it truely awesome

TL:DR Watch “Dead Snow” instead.

Watered down version of a movie named “Outpost”. While there are shades of “Saving Private Ryan” and “Inglorious Basterds”, you’re actually better off watching any of these three offerings so you don’t feel like you’ve wasted your time. The payoff in the end was too little too late. Other musings: I understand the concept of making soldiers “green”, but these guys went from incompetent to taking out a whole outpost from start to finish, holy ***! Edit out 20-30 minutes and it might have made it bearable. The “anti”-hero was overly too self-righteous and everything turned up roses for him, great writing. Yes, those trailers duped us all. Congratulations PR department, job well done! <sarcastic clap> If you want to watch a nazi-zombie flick, I recommend Dead Snow.

Great production values considering limited budget. Story straight forward. Shame there is not much character development as actors are pretty good. Pretty gory. Definitely a horror movie.

This is also under the category of Blu ray disc, but seeing the order details, it shows all DVD, are you actually ordering blu rays or Dvd ?
