    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.

    This anything-goes exercise isn't dull -- one just wishes the outrageousness were more consistently funny.

    Postal's touches of wit are lost in the flying body parts, gross-out gags, and the full frontal spectacle of Foley's no-longer-private parts.

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

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

    Manages to be as toothless as he (Boll) is tasteless. Poorly framed, tone-deaf, and nonsensical (yet still Boll's best!).

    Boll's rampant narcissistic showmanship creates such a bizarre, garish spectacle that it is almost tempting to give him credit for being something of a misunderstood artist after all. Almost, but not quite.
  10. 10
    Infantile, irreverent and boorish to the max, Postal explodes with bad attitude and lousy filmmaking.
  11. Where Boll's movies were once amusingly atrocious, Postal is so aggressively tasteless and knowingly idiotic, there's just no fun to be had.

    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 BollI 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. Full Review »

    Postal is rather amusing. It brings a video game notorious for It's content, and morphs it into a comedy of sorts. What's even stranger is howPostal is rather amusing. It brings a video game notorious for It's content, and morphs it into a comedy of sorts. What's even stranger is how It sort of works. Even more stranger, It's by Uwe Boll. It's stupid, raunchy and reckless, but not worthless. Full Review »
