The current king of bad filmmaking returns with yet another videogame adaption. This time its "Postal", based on a video game series with the same name, where an unnamed young man (played by Zack Ward), puts up with a number of horrible things, such as his wife cheating on him, being verbally assaulted by people on the street, dealing with a number of random shoot outs that for some reason pop up for no real reason, makes up a get rich scheme that involves robbing a German themed amusement park for a toy that is supposedly worth thousands. And for some reason, the Taliban is there, too.
Really, there is no real plot to this. The movie probably managed a chuckle from me, but I spent the majority of the film with my head buried in the couch wishing for it to end. The comedy mostly comes from an overdose of gratuitous violence, where they show a number of people, usually bystanders, getting shot. One shoot out, that takes place in the German theme park is essentially nothing but little kids getting shot. I guess there had to be a reason for that scene. Besides all that, there appears to be a bit about Boll trying to inject a bit of topical humor in it as well, where he shows Osama bin Ladin palling around with then-president Bush, as being co-conspirators, and at the end of the movie, shows Osama and Bush, skipping, hand-in-hand into a mushroom cloud in a ham-fisted attempt at either art or controversy.
Perhaps the only thing I did like about the film is Uwe Boll's self realization that he is generally not very well liked. He is portrayed by himself as wearing lederhosen, claiming he is financed by nazi gold, attacked by the lead designer of the game "Postal", before getting shot in the balls and dying.
Overall, Boll has made yet another bad movie. Not as bad as, say, Alone in the Dark, but is not better than Bloodrayne, which is still a terrible movie. I have to give it to Boll, he has made some films which has actually been painful. I think a little bit of me dies when I see them.
