Postal

2007, R, 109 min. Directed by Uwe Boll. Starring Zack Ward, Dave Foley, Chris Coppola, Jackie Tohn, J.K. Simmons, Verne Troyer, Larry Thomas.

Not reviewed at press time. It's hard not to knee-jerk sigh, or snicker, at the thought of another video game adaptation from Uwe Boll, the famously outré German purveyor of some of the most loathed movie product of the past decade, like BloodRayne and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. But the early buzz is the best Boll's ever gotten, and Postal, a political satire cloaked in an action movie, won fans at last year's Fantastic Fest.
