D-Day looms, and two soldiers are prepared to sacrifice their own lives to the noble cause of bringing down the Nazis. They have a secret mission to perform when they sneak into a Nazi-occupied town, but they do not realize what kind of a time they are in for. Not only is their mission dangerous by conventional means, but it has a supernatural element to it that makes their blood run cold. Can they successfully thwart the plot unfolding in front of them, or are they doomed to be unwitting guinea pigs in a sick experiment by the Aryan race?

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.
