If you have the idea of a perfect weekend, the trunk is full Commando comics and seemingly endless supplies of Malteser, then action-horror Overlord should deliver the same pulsating pill for two hours. And just like Commandoes and Maltesers, it's a lot more.
With the D-Day underway, an American parachutist aircraft is being set up and shot down for the enemy. Only four of them survive: newcomer Boyce (Jovan Adepo), sniper Tibbet (John Magaro), photographer Chase (De Caestecker) and Ford (Wyatt Russell), Alpha explosive expert who is more than willing to go alone.

Both players actually made their money; passing on more to watch them, doing it all again as seemingly the least that can help to continue the effort.
There is no succession of post-credit, nor – the proper old school.
