Uwe's best
30 August 2009 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Okay - I know that 99.99% of the stupid internet population hates Uwe Boll, and I don't really like any of his previous attempts at film making either, but this film was a special case.

The acting in this film was top-notch (especially considering that most of the dialogue was not rehearsed!). I wish people would stop hating on Uwe Boll - he is a very confident film-maker who CAN obviously produce a hard-hitting and very emotional film when he wants to. I think that this film shows that 100%.

The only problem I had with the film was it's length - I wish that it had gone for longer, as it's 82 minutes did NOT seem long enough in my eyes.
