Consensus: An attempt at political satire that lacks any wit or relevance, Postal is nonetheless one of Uwe Boll's more successful films -- for what it's worth.

John Anderson

Convinced that Arab terrorists are inherently hilarious, and that shooting fish in the leaky barrel of American pop culture takes marksmanship, Boll is a boor, and a symptom of something sad and dehumanizing.

It's hard to imagine a worse movie will come out this year, and yet Boll's growing notoriety has already earned the trailer millions of hits on YouTube. Ed Wood never had it so good.

A bad movie based on a lousy video game. It barely works as a satire, and as a comedy only managed to extract a couple of laughs out of me. [Full review in Spanish]

If this movie had been made by an unknown young director, a lot of critics would still be panning the movie for its inconsistencies -- but many others would be praising his courage.

Postal is largely just a byproduct of Boll's self-promotion, rendering the film itself, in essence, beside the point.

The end result is a film that feels as though it's been conceived and executed by a third grader...

Postal strikes me as marginally superior to Morgan Spurlock's merely boneheaded Where in the World Is Osama bin Laden? But that's like saying Moe is smarter than Curly.

Infantile, irreverent and boorish to the max, Postal explodes with bad attitude and lousy filmmaking.

Boll mistakes shock for satire and crudity for cleverness in this desperately unfunny, hopelessly clueless catalogue of the ills of America... that ends up rejoicing in what it believes it is sending up.

On one hand Uwe Boll continues to make crap. On another hand this movie was so bad I laughed at times just for the sheer stupidity.

Not bad and actually funny at some points. Plenty of hot chicks barely dressed, plus a full frontal from Dave Foley. Has next to nothing to do with the game… More

Postal is a better film by director Uwe Boll. Postal is based on the controversial video game of the same name, and the film is politically incorrect. The film… More
