Movie Review: Postal

I don’t know why I decided to watch this. I mean, it’s a video game adaptation (sorta) directed by Uwe Boll. This shittiest director ever. Least that’s the rep, I’ve ever actually seen one of his movies before.

Postal is surprisingly watchable however. It’s one of those movies that so stupid it’s good, if you’re in the right mood. Or high. I highly recommend being high. It’s entertaining in a Troma Films kinda way. Noone would ever say The Toxic Avenger is high art, but in the right mood it is entertaining.

Postal has several scenes that are just laugh out loud funny, and most of them are also offensive as hell. If you’re insulted easily do not watch this. Subject matter includes 9/11 highjackers in flight discussing how many virgins they’ll get afterwards, Verne Troyer getting raped by 1,000 monkeys (yes, you read that right) and Osama bin Laden attending a motivational speaker to learn how to better motivate his people. Frankly once the gunfire starts (you know, the part from the game) the films drags for another 30 minutes. First hour though has sporadic  moments of hilarity.

3 Stars – My Review
2 Stars – Netflix Prediction
