As soon as the words, "independent film" are uttered, expectations always shift in my mind as I brace myself for underwhelming acting, often inconsistent plots and really woeful special effects. What a pleasant feeling then to have my expectations snapped the other way by this completely and utterly awesome film. Al Snow and John Wells play off each other to great effect as Raphael and Max, a pair of chatty assassins on the payroll of a lawyer friend who gets really nasty clients off in order discretely bump them off at a latter point. Naturally, when the guys have to work overtime on the weekend, this creates marital tensions for Raph, who has to cough up with cake, present and clown for his son's birthday by the end of the day. Things go south very quickly once the pair realize that the job lined up by their boss involves "non-terrestrial fluid". Again, as independent movies go, this was way above the norm. Once you get past the two main characters, however, the other mostly women parts seems almost wooden in comparison. This might be due to the fact that all the good lines get mouthed by Snow and Wells. Still, when all is said and done, Overtime is absolutely worth the rental or purchase. The only thing left to make this the perfect story would be if some drunk, homeless, guy were to get dressed up as a clown and then get mauled by a pack of kids. Oh, wait......

Raphael (Al Snow) and Max (John Wells) are hitmen who kill bad guys after they confide in defense attorney Samantha Carter (Katie Stewart) and she gets them off. Raph has a normal family life and it is his son's birthday. His wife tasks him with getting a clown, a cake, and a gift at the last minute. He stops by to see Samantha to get paid, but she has one more task for our duo to perform.

Our guys have their own grindhouse swagger music that is interrupted by a phone call from the wife (Cristina Mullins). Unable to secure a clown at the last minute, they employ a drunk homeless man (Sean Saunders), someone who is a "Bobcat" light. Raph with his "Steven Seagal looking pony tail" and Max enter a Kentucky warehouse to do one last job only to be confronted by zombie type humans under alien control.

Overall the acting was bad, although it did win awards at the Louisville Fright Night Film Fest, go figure.

At one point in an elevator Ralp calls Max "Ray" for some reason. The dialouge was humorous, but not rip roaring funny. A fun popcorn film. John Wells did win an award for this film "Best one liner" although I can't say what it was. The film had a number of good one liners.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity. My local Walmart $9.96.

Alright... I'm a fairly open-minded individual but this could've been much more intelligently done lol. I liked that it was funny, hated that the acting was off (not terrible... just not great, either), and enjoyed the overall storyline... but then that didn't even make sense. So... 3 stars because it had the potential to be great but wasn't.

Really enjoyed this. It seemed like Al Snow's acting chops took until the second act to start kicking in, but the interaction between Snow and John Wells is priceless. There's a natural buddy chemistry there. The story line is fairly predictable (it's a zombie movie, after all...), but the dialogue and some of the jokes more than make up for any thematic deficiencies. Well worth a watch.

I have to admit that I had some concerns when I checked out this movie but it turned out to be surprisingly good. The premise is a little odd but the interaction between the characters is good especially the hit men! Space alien zombies is definitely a new approach to the genre and it also has it's humorous moments as well. If you're a horror movie fan then you would probably enjoy watching this movie at least once, I recommend renting it over buying it.

Got to see this film when it won the best feature award at the 2011 Fright Night Film Festival/Fandom Fest in Louisville KY. There was a packed house for the premier and I missed half the good parts (the one liners) due to the crowd reactions. Laughing and cheering. I recommend you get a copy on DVD and watch several times. I see or hear something new each and every time. Fun to the max.

What do you get when you place a bunch of wrestlers in a funky script? A scrum of big guys trying to fight their way out of the paper bag of implausibility. Ghost-like zombies are out for revenge and get the upperhand until their anger is satisfied. I survived this movie. You could too if you know a few escapes and reversals.

It was Shakespeare who said, "Kill all the lawyers". He may have been right, at least when it comes to those who specialize in using legal loopholes and the `old-boys' network to get criminals off the hook. Of course, there are other means of dealing with criminals the system can't touch. Chun (Joel Grey) from "Remo Williams - The Adventure Begins" expressed it best when he said, "Assassination is the highest form of public service" in reference to the execution of those who think they are above the law. Filmmakers Matt Niehoff and Brian Cunningham follow that idea as the starting point for their film "Overtime".

Attorney Samantha Carter (Katie Stewart) specializes in using all the legal tricks at her disposal to get some of the worst criminals in Louisville released. Of course, she is extremely well paid for this, and she in turn puts that money to good use, paying hitmen Raph (Al Snow) and Max (John Wells) to take out these criminals.

Raph and Max may be hitmen, but first they are friends and partners. Their relationship reminds one of the really good buddy-action flicks from the 80's and 90's, like the "Lethal Weapon" series. They exchange casual banter and Max, the younger single man, is a welcome member of Raph's family. Unfortunately for Raph, that family is causing him some serious problems. It's his son's birthday and Raph has to come up with an awesome present, a cake for the party... oh and a clown. Maybe if it was his day off that would be one thing, but he and Max have to take out the supplier for a drug operation.

As Raph and Max work to solve all of the birthday related problems, they also track their target to a warehouse/chemical laboratory.
