A small group of American soldiers find horror behind enemy lines on the eve of D-Day.
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.
Oh my god! What did you do to me? OH MY GOD!
On June 6, 1944 the Allies sent the paratroopers between 6am and 7am. In the wee small hours of the morning in June, it's already pretty much daylight. Yet, the sun rises only after a good hour into the movie.
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.
