This movie changed my mind. It made me forgive Boll for all the horrible things he's done to my favorite games. I borrowed this movie from a friend, ignoring his ranting about how great it is, and sat down grimly determined to see how badly Boll had mutilated another one of my favorite game franchises, but I was shocked:
Postal is astonishingly, disgustingly hilarious. It is brutally brilliant in its determination to offend virtually everyone in the world, and to defile every single sacred cow within Western civilization, between the opening and ending credits. It out-South Parks South Park. Even Boll's previous moronic style of action movies are satirized with ridiculous shootout sequences. Hell, Boll even satirizes himself in the film, playing a Nazi-gold-funded, vaguely pedophilic administrator of an Auschwitz theme park who also makes video games into movies. How can you not love it?
I haven't laughed so hard, and so consistently, in years. A fluke? Notable only for its offensiveness? Perhaps. But well, well worth the money. I hope he makes more.
If you are easily offended or belong to any racial group or human demographic (because Ewe has something offensive for everyone!) then you can find some way to be outraged by Postal.
Ewe leaves nothing sacred in this movie from lampooning religion to positing a connection at the highest of levels between the US and Al Quaeda. Racial slurs and even abuse of the handicapped are found in this movie.
Some of the extras are the best parts. Watching Ewe literally box with critics and beat the stuffing out of them is good, clean fun. Watch the credits at the end to see that even Ewe took out some of his jokes.
This is not a movie for the kiddies, and I would be careful to watch this movie in a mixed crowd. Think that your date or your spouse has an unvarnished, great sense of humor -- better think twice before you show this one.
As a guilty pleasure, this movie is fantastic.
It has boldly gone where no movie has gone before or is likely (unfortunately) to go again.
*The Blu-Ray has excellent video; it is one of the cleanest, clearest, and shrapest movies I've seen. Also has some great colors.
*Includes the "Raging Boll" feature (the notorious clip where director Uwe Boll boxes his critics), director's commentary, and some brief clip where Verne Troyer mocks Indiana Jones. The cover says "And much more!", but that's not true; this is all of the features you get (maybe it's a joke on the cover).
*Also includes the PC game "Postal 2" (woohoo!).
*The comedy is surprisingly great at times. There are some original jokes, and lots of great funny lines. Some of it is crazy slapstick, other parts have thought-provoking satire (all the terrorist stuff), other parts yet make good fun of real-life situations (like the job interview scene).
*Includes some self-parody.
*Pretty good story. It is well-paced and is hardly dull.
*Lots of action scenes throughout, especially at the end. A few excellent special effects.
*The cameramanship is splendid.
*Production design is great. Look out for all sorts of funny text on building signs, billboards, and props.
*The acting is great; the characters are quite zany and expressive. Writing is good, and there are some good funny (perhaps even memorable) lines. The cast is great; Zach Ward was always great with comedies, and even though everybody else are basically nobodies, they are distinctive and good. Plus, there are a bunch of hot chicks in it.
*Some good music.
The Bad Things
*The sound quality is generally not bad, but it has some parts that seem to be very loud and other parts that are very low (DTS HD 5.1 and Dolby Digital 2.0).
*Special features are in standard definition.Read more ›
Think of all the movies you've seen where you wish that once, just once, someone would behave the way they'd like to when confronted by an outrageous situation. Well, here's your chance. Don't miss it. I wish more films like this were shown in Amerika.
The opening scene is one of the funniest in the entire movie, as we watch a couple of Muslim hijackers confront conflicting information about the number of virgins they're supposed to get by their martyrdom. Radical Islamic terrorism plays a major role throughout the film, as Al Qaeda and Osama "Sammy" Bin Laden find their newest jihad plot constantly undermined by a group of crazy cultists executing a plan very much like their own. Both plan to use a stolen supply of very scarce dolls for their own purposes.Read more ›

I have to admit, this is entertaining. Great satire, though crude, of, at the time, contemporary ideas. The movie wanders a bit, but the dark humor keeps it mostly on-track. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Sticz

|Wow, straight to video suck fest||
I don't much care for Uwe's films either... But Postal was really good. I made it a point to go see this in the theater due to so many theaters refusal to play it... Come to think of it, Postal was the last movie I seen in the theater.
This film itself is really good. The first 10 minutes are... Read More
