Sure, there were also some attempts at drama but they didn’t seem to make as much impact because it was really unclear who the real villain of the piece was. And because nothing really surprising actually happens, it seemed a bit derivative copycat of previous sci fi works. The Silent Sea really had a lot of potential. Too bad it wasn’t able to deliver fully on it.

Unfortunately,  Overlord was a massive disappointment from start to finish. I even nodded off a couple of times throughout its relatively short run and I don’t think this is something that a movie in this genre was aiming for. It was corny, predictable and frustrating. It was overhyped and underwhelming. That’s the kindest description for it, I guess. Better luck next time.
