Boll’s biggest gamble is a $60 million stab at the medieval fantasy market with Jason Statham leading a mix’n’match cast: Burt Reynolds, Ray Liotta, Leelee Sobieski, Matthew Lillard et al. CGI work has held this up for nearly two years, so there was a lot riding on the 11 January US release…
“They begged me not to do this movie…” Boll’s outrageous anti-PC satire features a jaw-dropping sequence of kids getting caught up in a bloody gun battle – along with jokes about Osama, race, male nudity, paedophilia, corporate fascism and Uwe Boll, playing himself.
Michael Paré and Will Sanderson star in this gory serial killer movie, shot back-to-back with Postal and further evidence of Boll’s not very cheerful state of mind at the end of 2006.
BLOOD RAYNE II: DELIVERANCE
Thrown together in a couple of weeks for the US DVD market, this troubled sequel is a vampire western shot in Vancouver in the winter. “My homage to Sergio Leone,” says Boll.
Boll recreated Vietnam in South Africa to shoot this improvised war drama. “This is very depressing. To make a war movie now you can’t have a hero. You gain nothing. Nobody wins.”
German star Til Schweiger takes on a private army of genetically modified invincible soldiers concocted by Udo Kier in this videogame action flick.
