May 23, 2008
Twice as violent and half as funny as anything resembling a good movie, it's still a hell of a ride
Full Review | Original Score: C+
May 22, 2008
Imagine what "Catch-22" might have been like if it had been written by that creepy grade-school classmate of yours who was always talking about how cool it would be to stick a cherry bomb under that dead squirrel he found on the side of the road
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
May 22, 2008
nihilistic and nasty
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
May 22, 2008
How does Uwe Boll keep getting work? Seriously, this is not a rhetorical question -- someone, somewhere surely must know the answer.
May 22, 2008
Proves the director is the industry leader at accomplishing the exact opposite of what he intends.

May 22, 2008
It is funny at times and shows that even he has a sense of humor about himself. It's just a shame what direction he chose to take the film because I feel had he taken in seriously, instead of trying to shock us, he might have actual touched on something

May 22, 2008
It all plays out as satirically transgressive as a high-school freshman mooning you from the passenger seat of a car.
May 22, 2008
The distinction of being Boll's best film is hardly a compliment in the grand scheme of things, sort of like being the wealthiest homeless person.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 21, 2008
It's Boll's knuckleheaded misinterpretation of topical humor that really gets me.
May 21, 2008
This movie's about as dangerous (or as funny) as a mouthy, caffeinated teen punk from the suburbs who just saw his first s***-flinging GG Allin performance on YouTube.
May 19, 2008
Along the way to its parking lot showdown, a wacky property damage conspiracy to commit insurance fraud is uncovered between Osama and Bush. The darker, zany recesses of America as viewed from the Twilight Zone. Move over, Borat.
May 19, 2008
I suppose since almost seven years have passed since 9/11, America might finally be ready to laugh at the tragedy. Tasteless, profane and farfetched, but undeniably funny, too!
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
May 18, 2008
Having already demonstrated the worst that the horror, action and fantasy genres have to offer, Uwe Boll tries his hand at political/cultural satire with Postal and comes up with something smelling awfully similar to feces.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
April 29, 2008
Avian flu, atomic bombs and solidarity are the main themes throughout this opus of insufferable screen time while nausea seems to be the only thing you take with you when the film comes to its nuclear holocaust of a closing.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
April 20, 2008
Uwe Boll is the epitome of a hack director who thinks that putting an Osama impersonator and a George Bush lookalike together in a scene will automatically make some comic impression. It just made me sleepy.
Full Review | Original Score: D-
October 7, 2007
From the scoring and lighting to the acting and editing, the thing wouldn't earn a passing grade from even the most lenient film professor at the chintziest community college.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 22, 2007
It's just not as funny or clever as it needs to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
September 17, 2007
Deliriously tasteless Postal may be, but it is also, to borrow a phrase from one of its minor characters, 'the place where laughter died.'
August 28, 2007
It's not perfect and will get on the nerves of the more opinionated critics out there, but it's such an insanely fun ride that most of its flaws are forgivable.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 15, 2007
Boll does mean to provoke, but to pull off a satirical critique of the volatile subjects here would require sharper wit than he and co-scenarist Bryan C. Knight generally provide.
