Uwe Boll’s Postal 11-minute Preview

Ok, before I say anything, try to watch the full 11 minutes of this thing, and we’ll talk after.

Big screen adaptation of video games are usually awful, and up to now, Uwe Boll has always taken “awful” to the next level. Can anyone think of a movie of his that was actually just “decent”? Hmmm, let me think, “In the Name of the King”? Nope. “Alone in the Dark”? Neither…that one was even worse I think.

Now the question is, will “Postal” be another of Mr. Boll’s miserable failures, or will it be at least a bit entertaining. I have to admit that the preview made me laugh a time or two, but to get a good impression of the movie, I’m afraid I’ll have to watch the whole thing eventually.

For those who wish to see it as well, “Postal” was released on DVD and Blu-Ray today. Up to now, 10 people who have pre-screened it reviewed it on Amazon.com, and half have given it a 5-star rating. Just this fact makes me think that these guys must have been paid to write this…but who knows? Maybe not…

So, after watching the preview, what’s your first opinion on the movie? Let us know in the comments section below.

  1. I've already seen the movie last year, at fantasia fest (http://fantasiafestival.com/2007/), with Uwe Boll presenting the whole thing.

    It's clearly not a good movie, and even less of a great movie. Uwe Boll is a peculiar character, and especially in this movie, his crudeness have some redeeming values. It's stupid and un-PC, but I've had quite a few laughs. Actually, the video game itself was in itself more interesting than good, and the movie clearly wants the same effect. There's something creepily attractive about witnessing Boll's irreverencious (irrelevant?) "political" movie… It was somewhat entertaining, but not good. A strong 2 stars rating.

    ** SPOILER **

    The movie features Uwe Boll being shot …

    … in the crotch.

    ** END SPOILER **

    • I also saw it at Fantasia, but I actually liked it. Unlike other terrible Uwe Boll horrorfests, I actually appreciated a lot of the humour, and found it adequately paced to boot. At least, I was seriously entertained for the time I was in the theater, which is about the most anybody could ever expect from an Uwe movie.

      Oh, and there are some clever homages people who actually played Postal may catch onto.

      I am now finished destroying my internet persona in praise of an Uwe Boll movie. It's most definitely worth a drunken rental, anyhow.
