Trivia

As stated in the audio commentary on the German DVD, the movie was intended to be more satirical and ridiculous, like "Blues Brothers meets Borat." Executive Producers Steve Wik and Vince Desiderio, didn't like Uwe Boll's approach, so he rewrote it with Bryan C. Knight. See more »

Goofs

During the big final shootout, when Zack Ward shoots everyone with the machine gun, the spent casings fall to the ground in slow motion. They're obviously blanks with crimped ends, not empty casings, which would come from live ammo. See more »

A Bollian journey into Tromaville Territory
27 August 2008 | by (Oshawa, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Uwe Boll's best Movie. Better than "You Don't Mess with the Zohan". Neither of those statements are saying particularly much, but to say the least, this movie is actually worth watching. Postal is essentially an absurdist farce comprised of characters designed to be caricatures of the worst parts of humanity. Assuming this was not some cosmic coincidence whereby Uwe Boll managed to write and direct a movie that actually entertains it's alleged target audience, I feel confident in saying that this movie actually hits it's mark. Knowing the spirit and tone of the source material, this is actually a pretty decent video game adaptation. The movie is essentially a Bollian journey into Tromaville territory: from the crass socio-political commentary, through the excessive violence, coarse language, gratuitous full frontal Dave Foley nudity, right down to the self deprecating director cameo. It's intentionally offensive to everyone. Despite itself, on some level this movie works. It's weird that I seem to only have good things to say about this movie, seeing as it is not a good movie... but, dare I say, it's not bad either. 5/10
