Trivia

Lindsay Hollister was intended to play "Bitch", the Postal Dude's obese wife. When producers found out Good Luck Chuck (2007) was being filmed in Vancouver at the time, they visited the set for a day. Jodie Stewart fit the role much better because of her weight, so she was approached for the role. 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 »

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!

An exercise in thrash movie-making - best video game adaptation ever
22 July 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw the world premiere at the Fantasia Festival in Montreal. Seriously, this movie blows away anything ever done by Boll.

It's the most violent, disgusting, offensive, thrash movie I've ever seen. I give the movie 9 stars because it was exactly what Boll was intending, and it's a complete success. Go home Takashi Miike! To sum up, it's probably the best video game to movie adaptation ever made. It perfectly captured the spirit of the video game, and then added more, always more, to create such excess that you can't help but laugh during the whole thing.

People criticizing the movie because it's violent, disgusting and offensive shouldn't comment on it - they obviously missed the point.
