My official review is a pretty big Meh. Mrs. Haus Mrs. Haus might have a different opinion.

OTOH, It was definitely the best movie featuring undead nazi's I have seen this year.

I really wanted to see this based on premise and trailer, oh well. Maybe wait til it streams

I'm still sitting here hoping somehow to re evaluate it and somehow love it... isn't happening...

Why can I imagine 10000x ways to tie this into cloverfield and make it 10000x better :/

Mike and Jay loved it. gave it very high praise. constant beeming over it, kindof makes me want to check it out.

I was in the camp of, "its just a video game... and, why see this in theatres?"

I'll be seeing it because positive RLM review and has nothing to do with Cloverfield.

Ok I saw it. I will say I appreciated the aesthetics in the film. Mostly dark and serious and did give off a lot of early 20th century Frankenstein vibe. Movie was not mind blowing, just ok.

Do they ever explain why there is a black guy in the platoon?
No, but did mention in basic training that he was a gentle soul that did not even want to kill a mouse.

Did I mention that the commanding sergeant was also black? My friend leaned over to me and said "now watch, a female black captain is going to walk out of the cockpit".

I thought about it after the show and could see African American's getting mad at this ahistorical virtue signaling, something along the lines of: "how dare you portray those times like nothing was wrong, like we weren't really segregated!!!!"

Would be rich justice as the director and writers back-peddle and get called racists for "hiding the truth" of those times.

OK Thanks for letting me know the details. I'm only going to watch this one if the rest of the squad is gay.

It's weird, the zombies thing doesn't bother me but the SJW stuff is starting to get to me. Sorry.

This movie was better than the trailers make it seem. I thought it would be overly cheesy and overdramatic, but it turned out to be pretty good.

8/10

I thought this movie was garbage from beginning to end.

Only redeeming quality of it was the sniper guy. He was atleast funny.

This movie has reverse-synergy-syndrome. WW2, Nazis, zombies, decent acting performances, decent special effects and makeup, despicable villains... all of that should add up to something pretty cool but it doesn't.

By the end, the movie feels shallow, limited, and unsatisfying. The story isn't bad, it just seems like it was written by an amateur and had the depth of a Dixie cup.

If you wanted to say something was shallow and unsatisfying, just call it my penis

Well it was a quite okay "sunday hangover Netflix" watch. It's not great, it's not bad either, it was a decent entertainment. Also who cares about having black people in airborne, M1 carbines absent and every Waffen SS infantry with STG44, it's a cheap WW2 zombie flick no one cares about official ammo girth you gun maniacs.
