Trivia

In early 2007 the New York Post showed a 7 second clip, the infamous window-washer scene, to some of the families of the 9/11-victims, telling them "this is the joke in the new movie Postal by Uwe Boll". Of course they found it tasteless to make fun of 9/11 and its victims in such a fashion. But the scene was the punchline, not the entire joke. The real joke was made on the Taliban 3 minutes before that scene. According to Uwe Boll The NY Post's actions were "more tasteless than any of my movies could ever be," and he considered it another personal attack. See more »

Goofs

When the Taliban shoot up the roof of the van, bullet holes appear everywhere on the roof, even over the driver's seat where no one fired a weapon. See more »

Quotes

Asif: Congratulations, Nabi. We are at the doorstep of our martyrdom.
Nabi: Praise Allah.
Asif: Praise him! Soon, we will be greeted by Allah, the one true god... and by the cheers of our Four Fathers... and by ninety-nine perfect virgins who will worship us... for ALL eternity!
Nabi: [pause] I thought it was one hundred.
Asif: What's that?
Nabi: One hundred virgins. They promised me one hundred.

Knowingly dumb fun
7 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After I saw Postal, I got a chance to see Uwe Boll himself in a Q&A session. He's actually pretty amusing in real life and I think he channeled that when writing Postal. This was the first movie of his I've ever seen and...

I actually had a lot of fun. Take a few friends with you when you go, and you'll probably leave in a good mood too. It's not without some flaws, it does stutter here and there and Mr Boll takes a few great jokes and doesn't quite build up and then punchline them properly, but there's enough hits here to make up for it. The cast is excellent (Dave Foley and Zach Ward steal the show but there are some great cameos). The VERY last shot of the movie is strangely beautiful. You'll have to see it to see what I mean.

In the end there's something very good-natured about how this movie with decapitations and explosions and suicide bombers and gunfights tries to make you laugh. It was happy to roll around in its own silliness and for that, I loved it.
