They liked the treatment, but they didn't like the approach of some stuff, they thought it was too funny, but I said the only way to tell a story like "Postal" is to do it funny, let people laugh. I don't want a movie like Taxi Driver (1976) where a guy is killing everybody, too many movies like that. "Postal" is a movie where everybody is running amok, everyone has good reasons to run amok from the welfare office guy to the police officer. Coming up in two to three weeks, they will be really happy, like our cast . . . I think it will be hilarious. Hide

I had 25% really bad reviews, like, "Oh, a Boll movie. Typical trash." But some said it was "by far Boll's best movie." They compared it to, not The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), but something weaker like Eragon (2006). Hide

Of course, I want to make entertaining movies for the younger audience, and this is a lot of times not working with film critics who are more into drama or art-house movies. But on the other hand, I always try to make solid movies. Hide

You know, they are all fu*king each other in the asses and nobody makes any decisions. All the actors I ever worked with, Ben Kingsley, whatever, are fu*king pussies, nothing else! They are in the as*holes of their managers, agents and publicists and attorneys...[June 2015] Hide

In that book you learn that the Civil War was not about freeing the slaves, it was all about the money, etc. Hide

The reason I am able to do these kind of movies is I have a tax shelter fund in Germany, and if you invest in a movie in Germany you get basically 50% back from the government. Hide
