| Colorful revamp of well known bizzare genre combination
It's one of those well visited (at least once in decade) genre combos of bizarre cliches, like Nazi zombie experiments, soldiers on special mission, heroism... Just take how the story is wrapped in famous operation Overlord that turned the tide of 2nd World War (Normandy, etc.) But, may I say that the young (i.e. modern) colorful team, like writer/scenarist Billy Ray, director Julius Avery with insight of Jon Cohen, all under production wing of J.J. Abrams, did a nice job. One shouldn't be bored watching, despise somewhat thin drama-elements. I bet it took them for a nice and fun ride in an effort of putting such over-chewed stuff into contemporary boxing. I loved the camera, action and dynamics, decent acting among other. Interesting how there's simply no point in even notion of spoiling a movie of such a genres, for you've seen it all - but I see now that a nice modern revamp is good, say for new generations.

Did You Know?


The title of the film is, no doubt, in reference to Operation Overlord, the codename for the Allied operation for the Battle of Normandy, which launched the successful invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe. This, alongside Operation Neptune, would become known as D-Day.


Chase: There's a lot of soldiers out there and there's only four of us.


Paul, a young boy in a small rural village, owns a baseball glove and ball. Before the end of WWII, nobody in France played baseball and gear was impossible to find, even in peace time. To this day, baseball remains almost unknown in France, being only played at an amateur level by a small group of enthusiasts or Japanese expats. No TV channel shows games, there are no baseball fields or parks anywhere and no mainstream retailers carry the gear.

Alternate Versions

After the film was given the restricted R18+ rating in Australia, Paramount Pictures decided to edit out almost 1 minute of footage to lessen the violence for the cinema version. The subsequent re-submission got the film a more accessible MA15+ rating. Although this version never ended up getting released due to Paramount Pictures changing their minds to instead give the original R18+ rated cut to cinemas.
