I would like to believe that it has a very interesting premise, however, it obviously refused to delve on its cultural meaning deeper and went to an entertaining action flick path instead. Regardless, there was a slick usage of these German crazy experiments during the war and the film allows some glimpse of powerful and heartfelt scenes.

In “Trench 11” it’s a group of soldiers who had to search an abandoned bunker of the Germans. There were rumors the Germans conducted experiments there. The Germans tried to fabricate a chemical product so they could create invincible storm troops and thus conquer the rest of the non-German-Friendly world. The biggest difference between “Overlord” and "Trench 11" is the choice of world war. In “Trench 11” they were wallowing in the trenches during World War I. …
