    It's such an insanely fun ride that most of its flaws are forgivable.
  2. Not only less than horrible, but actually occasionally enjoyable.

    A provocation first, an insult second, a publicity stunt third, and a film a distant fourth.

    What Boll gives us is a boring beating over the head.

    At last: Uwe Boll has made his first intentionally funny film.

    Manages to be as toothless as he (Boll) is tasteless. Poorly framed, tone-deaf, and nonsensical (yet still Boll's best!).
  7. Where Boll's movies were once amusingly atrocious, Postal is so aggressively tasteless and knowingly idiotic, there's just no fun to be had.

    Uwe Boll finally made a great film based on game. Even with elements borrowed from "Postal 2", the film have faithful with the franchise, filled with sexual jokes, Osama "look a like" appearance, and controversies between game and movie. Expand

    Just to let critics and people know this movie was supposed to be a bad joke (meaning its so bad its funny) just like the games there supposed to be mediocre. But then again it could have done a better job on the movie, by making it such like films as space ball if they made it in that style (im not talking about theme) then they might have gotten more attention with this film.

    I know I was definitely high when I watched "Postal" and giving it a 6.4 despite that it was a Uwe Boll movie. I DON'T GIVE A CRAP. Uwe Boll has directed crappy movies throughout his life, but this film had better cinematography as well as a weak, but noticeable morale. Its not a black comedy like the poster advertises, but its a **** good no-stop hell ride for sure. Expand

    So bad its kinda........ TERRIBLE (ha! you thought I was going to say good.)
    It fails on so many areas while many people will find Postal
    offensive it fails to much to even be taken seriously. Its one redeeming factor is its so bad that you can have a laugh at its many, many flaws.
    DO NOT WATCH!

    Uwe Boll's attempts at making a humorous film have only backfired sending him into a deeper pit than he was before. Containing awful puns and unexpected scenes that make you wonder if your supposed to laugh are lousy, lame, and all out effortless Expand

    Uwe Boll tries too hard to capture the political satire that South Park has done in this film. A very bad film, and stupid film. A bad movie base off of a bad game Expand

    Do not listen to any user reviews giving this higher than a 0. This is political satire as imagined by a toddler with a really bad sense of humor.

    It's not even enjoyable in a morbid way like some of Boll's other movies. At the point of making this, he's become an experienced enough filmmaker to not make incredibly stupid decisions. But those mistakes are what made his work funny to begin with, so now he's simply untalented and boring.

Everything you've heard about the genre is true: there are a lot of terrible movies, and a lot of Uwe Boll movies. (And those categories are definitely not mutually exclusive.) We look at the "best" and worst examples of games-turned-movies.
