Alright so let’s talk about “Overtime”…with a tagline of “Guns, Girls, Aliens, Zombie…Cake!”, how can you  go wrong. “Overtime” is far from perfect but it is a fun science-fiction/horror/comedy.  The film has some decent gore, some sharp comedy and Former WWE superstar Al Snow.  That is enough for me.  Overall, the acting is terrible but for some reason, I was totally interested to see where this film was going. Is it the best movie ever? No.  But with all the crappy horror movies that I watch this film was at least worth checking out.

Official Premise: Former WWE superstar Al Snow stars in this action-packed zombie-alien comedy that gives new meaning to working late. Ralph (Snow) is a hitman who has trouble balancing the responsibilities of work and home…especially when his boss calls him in to work on a Saturday. But when Ralph finds himself locked in an alien infested lab with his partner Max (John Wells), he must find a way to save a small group of survivors, keep himself safe from a hoard of zombie aliens and get to his son’s birthday party on time.

This release is presented as a two-disc set combo pack with a Blu-ray and DVD copy of the film.  The 1080p transfer looks good for “Overtime” but nothing amazing.  There are two audio tracks including a PCM 2.0 and 5.1 surround track. There are some decent but short special features included.  There is an audio commentary with stars Al Snow and John Wells, and directors Brian Cunningham and Matt Niehoff.  This is a must listen for fans of the film and works great for a repeat visit.  There are two featurette including “Surviving Overtime” and a behind-the-scenes featurette looking into the production. Lastly there is a press promotional promo and trailer included.
