"Making of BloodRayne: The Third Reich" is a fairly amusing look at the mad methods of Uwe Boll and the cast and crew that love him. Clearly the actors are aware of the kind of film they're doing and don't take it too seriously. Say what you will about Boll but he comes across as a savvy filmmaker who knows what he wants.
In "Interview with the Writer," Michael Nachoff talks about his work on the film. He did a little bit of historical research but basically saw Rayne as a gunslinger akin to Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven (1992). Nachoff also talks about his writing routine, rewriting, and so on.
Also included are the official and alternate trailers.
Finally, there is an audio commentary by director Uwe Boll and writer Michael Nachoff. As you would imagine, Boll dominates the track and does not disappoint. He always envisioned a trilogy with this film set in World War II much like the video game. Unlike the Underworld and Resident Evil films, Boll didn't want to simply repeat what he had done before and instead tackle different genres with each installment. Not afraid to speak his mind, the director dishes on the two lead actors hooking up during filming and why he couldn't cast Kristanna Loken (she wanted too much money) in this film. He also criticizes the tough working conditions on all three films (i.e. a drunken Michael Madsen on the first one and a train station blowing up in the second one) on this admittedly amusing and entertaining track.
After a very quick introduction as to who is Bloodrayne (BR), the movie jumps quickly into a fight scene with BR helping the "resistance" kill Nazis. The resistance don't have any accents, so it if hard to tell who they are, but they cook things slowly like the French. During the fight a Nazi gets a taste of BR's blood and becomes a vampire himself. BR has a nightmare where a Hitler with a large Jewish nose bites her.
The ending was a bit of a let down. Bad plot. Bad dialogue. Bad acting. Good nudity.
F-bomb, nudity, sex, cool lesbian sex.
This one also is most like the games, but almost takes the material slightly more seriously with shots of Nazi's and Hitler looking like documentary stock footage. The general "Ekhart Brand" holds a lot of elements from various generals in "Bloodrayne" the video game. The look of the film is very well done, from the costumes, especially Rayne's, who gets several different, well-designed outfits.
For random elements, Bloodrayne has a love interest who doesn't leave or die, Nazi's are killed endlessly, Bloodrayne makes out with a lesbian gypsie, and more Nazi's die. A scientist resembling real-life Adolf Hitler's doctor is ever-present and very wierd.
Both Uwe Boll and Paul W.S. Anderson deserve much credit for jumpstarting video-game to film, and they still both hold the best video-game franchises: Bloodrayne and Resident Evil respectively. Also look out for upcoming "Resident Evil: Retribution" in Sept. 2012, as well as Uwe Boll's "In THe Name Of The King: 2 Worlds" and even a promised "Bloodrayne4!"
