The financial crisis left countless Americans economically devalued and emotionally demoralized, but only one was desperate enough to pick up an assault rifle and strike back. Dominic Purcell plays that guy — a fictitious avatar for the country’s collective outrage — in Uwe Boll’s “Assault on Wall Street,” an ugly, unusually audience-pandering thriller from the prickly German director behind such mass-killing sprees as “Postal” and “Rampage,” this one playing like “Margin Call” with grenades.

Uwe Boll's rep is on the upswing, but, really, what other direction could it go? The consensus choice for the world's worst professional director even before he cast Burt Reynolds as a fantasyland king, auteur Boll has in recent years put away childish things—his violent adventure flicks and their sequels—in order to make that serious movie about the Holocaust. Just like Spielberg, if Spielberg were a Mel Brooks character whose early films were video game adaptations made to take advantage of German tax-writeoffs.
Another key way Boll isn't like Spielberg: His 2007 splatter-comedy Postal opened with a burlesque of two hijackers in the cockpit of a plane hurtling toward New York City. As their martyrdom looms before them, the hijackers learn that, due to high d »
