Uwe Boll. The name alone makes babies cry. Rampage.

Posted by Bryan White | Sunday June 20, 2010 | Reviews

Fewer directors are as notorious or maligned as Uwe Boll, a man so in love with his own incompetence that he challenges his critics to actual physical fights… and wins. His entire career is defined by a series of movies based on video games and not even good video games. His exceptionally terrible movies are based on games that review only slightly better than his movies. Everybody hates this guy. He’s frequently compared to the legendary director Ed Wood and it actually makes sense if you look at the comparison beyond the obvious observation that they both made and make really bad movies. Ed Wood loved film and loved making film. So does Boll. It just so happens that the end-product of their toils is such garbage. Boll gets away with flop after flop because of how film investing works in Germany. It’s basically a tax shelter. Until they changed the laws in 2005, investing in movies that were intended to fail splendidly, you could invest in a movie, write it off 100% on your taxes and government incentives gave you half your money back. You can see the appeal of film investing in Germany, can’t you? You can also borrow the money to invest from a bank. Sort of makes me wish I’d invested in Bloodrayne now that I understand how it works.

So here’s Boll’s latest, based on the Bally Midway arcade classic where three giant monsters run wild on American cities, smashing buildings, destroying tanks and eating screaming women who fling themselves from open windows.

Actually, I’m being told that this Rampage is not that game. It would seem that Uwe Boll’s Rampage is, in fact, an entirely original work and has nothing to do with video games or giant monsters. I apologize. I was confused. Apparently I’m still confused because I could swear those title cards said that this movie was produced, written and directed by Uwe Boll and somehow I’m about to embark on a really positive review of it. How the fuck did that happen?

Bill Williamson is not a violent loner. He doesn’t seem to thrill to violent video games. He doesn’t watch a lot of violent movies. By all accounts, he’s your average post-high school burnout living in an oppressive small town under the roof of his parents who desperately want him out of the house and on to his own life. From the looks of it, they’re supportive, if at the end of their rope. However, living inside Bill is a consciousness collapsing under the weight of a global village in decline. The world overpopulates as our resources dwindle. To deal with the rage building inside him, he dons a metal plated bullet proof suit and mask, loads up on guns and ammo and hits the streets, killing everything that moves according to an elaborate plan. The only thing left out in the end is how he managed to manipulate Scott Tenorman into eating his parents.

I’m kidding about that last part.

I’m at a loss to explain how I came out of this movie experience a believer. See, nobody likes an Uwe Boll movie and if you think that you do, you’re just lying to yourself in order to either deal with the anguish that comes with having consciously sat through one of his shit piles or trying to rationalize the hatred you feel for him on a personal level. No feeling has ever been so strong so the only way to deal with it is to go in the opposite direction and think that maybe Dungeon Siege wasn’t so bad after all. I mean, it had Ben Kingsley in it, didn’t it? But I’m fairly certain, unless my mental faculties are slipping away, that Rampage is actually a pretty good movie and proof that Uwe Boll may be capable of crafting a quality film. It displays a certain style not found in his other movies, it’s a much¬† more intimate portrayal of a man on the edge, similar to Falling Down or Taxi Driver and somehow manages to make a very valid, if extremely nihilistic point about the direction this world is heading.

Back in 2008, Boll made his adaptation Postal, a game whose premise was pretty similar to this movie except that it was weighed down by slapstick comedy and deliberately offensive comedy. Rampage is what happens when the symptoms of the usual Boll production are removed and he sets out to make a movie of his own vision. It’s a flawed picture but Boll wins¬† big points here for scaling his production down to something a lot more intimate than his usual output. The overall movie wins in the casting department, as well. Brendan Fletcher in the lead as an unrepentant sociopath is believable and not half bad as an actor. Everyone else with a recognizable face winds up wasted, such as Michael Pare and Katharine Isabelle who both seem to be in the movie with the intention of being shot. The visual style also plays a vital part in the movie with lots of tight closeups and a shaky handheld approach to practically the entire movie that makes any given episode of NYPD Blue look like smooth sailing. Sometimes Boll’s handheld technique appears as though the movie were being shot in a 5.0 earthquake. So beware. Bring dramamine to Rampage.

Rampage occasionally loses its footing as we build up to the main event. It’s being sold as some kind of revenge picture, but the revenge in Rampage is much more meta than that. If Bill’s killing spree were a vengeance trip because the snotty barista can’t get his cofffee right or the girl at the Chicken Hut accidentally dumped his food on him, that would be fucked up, I mean really fucked up. There’s not a lot building up to Bills actions, though. News bites play behind the action to suggest that what’s going on in the world is what weighs on Bill’s mind but there’s not much else to suggest that he’d turn into a calculating killing machine. Maybe that’s the point, though. Spree killers in recent American history tend to be dressed up by the media as comic book villains as if to appease the public appetite for answers in the aftermath of those tragedies but Bill Williamson of Rampage is the most likely image of those actual killers. He’s just some guy who’d had enough.

The eventual spree makes up the majority of the movie and it’s tough to say that anyone could enjoy watching it as it’s pretty sadistic, long and extremely violent. It’s fairly creative, though, and very obviously based on the two bank robbers who ran wild in North Hollywood in 1997 with automatic weapons and impenetrable suits of armor. Some of it’s a bit hard to swallow, such as a radio controlled attack on a police station but even if Boll wants to break out and make this some kind of insane fantasy, he keeps it mostly in check. By the time the credits roll you’ve seen a mostly consistent and very compelling horror movie that’s as unconventional as they come and a definite evolution in the movies of Uwe Boll. It’s too bad that it’s taken him so long to get here but if this is what we have to look forward to in the future from Uwe Boll, I’m all in favor of it.

    I thought Brendan Fletcher really did a great job here…and any Matt Frewer appearence is a plus for me. This is not a film for everyone…but a very solid effort from Boll.

    This is the second reviewer now that I have read that has said positive things about Rampage. I think it must be hip and edgy to look favorably upon a horrible film as long as it involves absurd levels of violence and death. It seems as thought Uwe Boll took the entire “No Russian” segment of Modern Warfare 2 and made a movie about it. The writing was fucking awful and the majority of the actors couldn’t get through a Groudlings class. To top it all off, when you have your main character spouting Nazi propaganda about killing off the “useless” members of society(see the earliest victims of Hitler’s Third Reich in Germany, it started with elderly, mentally handicapped, and disabled)and then you have him killing able-bodied citizens and leaving the bingo parlor, well the logic is schizophrenic to say the least, and letting him get away with it all seems to me like a nod of approval from the fucking Waffen-SS commander himself, Uwe Himm…Boll. Terrible movie and I feel sorrow for the main actor, he was decent and I imagine it will be no small feat for him to get ANYTHING else not involving mass murder again.
    This film was a piece of shit with absolutely no point other than to to create some good jerk-off material for Uwe and his SA troop.

    Have a good look around. Lots of us are being hip and edgy by giving this movie the thumbs up. You know? We’re all so hung up on how cool we appear to be that we’re just giving bad movies good reviews. Never mind all the movies out there with absurd levels of violence and death that get bad reviews. Let’s not even talk about those ones. Also, I’ve got news for you. Killing spree movies date back further than a stupid 360 game, asshole.

    You know, this movie was actually pretty good, If Uwe Boll used an alias I bet you more people would enjoy it…

    My only complaint was that the camera was a little shaky and the movie didn’t go into more detail about bills downward spiral into madness…. but framing his friend… that way…
    fucking genius…

    I he did a decent job on this movie and more people should give him credit…
    so who gives a shit if Uwe Boll was the director he did a decent job… give him some credit people

    Bill is a Machiavellian Nihilist. He was sick of working at his job at less than 9 bucks an hour, and his passive-ass retarded parents nagging him about shit all the time. He was sick of his stupid socialist-communist friend spouting idealistic and anti-individualistic views constantly. He devised a way to turn all the things that he was sick of to his favor: used his crappy job to make a remote control car and save up money for guns/explosives, used his radical-viewed acquaintance’s stupidity against himself, and used the whole “traumatic” situation to get his parents off his back. The only thing that went wrong was Evan’s dad accusing Bill, so he split.

    The statements he made were PUBLICLY RELEASED in two years, so he played himself off as a neo-nazi psycho for many of a plausible reason. He was LAUGHING as he was saying it, and had stated before that everything Evan stood for was a joke.; meaningless.

    The acting was SUPERB. It was realistic as hell, when people screamed and begged “please” it sounded REAL. When he stuttered over words when confronting the coffee guy over the machiano, THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY DO. Nobody is flawless when they get in situations like that and don’t usually. Evan reminded me of someone I know who has said EVERY SINGLE THING and acts the SAME EXACT FUCKING WAY, TO THE TEE. There aren’t really many other movies I’ve seen that have this kind of acting, and I LAUGHED REALLY HARD THROUGH ALL THE KILLING.

    […] Bryan White of Cinema Suicide – After detailing Boll’s penchant for boxing against his critics and making an endless stream of video game adaptations, this critic proceeds to cast Rampage in a fairly positive light. That’s, of course, after he mistakes it for a remake of the 1980′s arcade game featuring giant monsters tearing up a city. […]

    perfect reason why we need the second amendment so that sick fucks would never get away with this shit. A shot to the head would have been the mot effective. I mean for christ sake the dude wore a fucking paintable mask made of cheap plastic. Unrealistic but a sick movie

    I don’t know. Maybe you haven’t seen it lately but we do have a second amendment and sick fucks still get away with this shit. As a matter of fact, it enables them to get away with this shit since nobody in charge seems to give a fuck about who buys a gun these days. But you can keep on going through life feeling like the 2nd Amendment is still under fire from liberal groups. It’s cool.

    I just finished watching this movie on netflix and all I have to say is “Amazing!”. The way the plot develops in this story is just phenomenal especially the ending. The only part of the movie i didn’t like is they didn’t go as much in depth with the main characters thoughts as I had wished. Otherwise this was a really well accomplished movie.

    He didn’t shoot up the bingo parlor because no one payed attention to him, it had nothing to do with Nazi ideals of kill the weak and let the strong survive. Even when he tried to make a scene in the hall no one flinched. He wanted them to play in his game, and when they didn’t he left.

    I just want to let it be known by everyone reading this that Bryan White is mentally retarded. I’m not saying he should be euthanized by any means, but perhaps amputating his hands might do some good. That way he can’t type such garbage about good movies.

    Reviews are subjective for a reason, dipshits. If you don’t like the review then you could go ahead and review the review, then I can watch as nobody reads the shit pouring from your mouths.

    I’ve never watched the movie, so I can’t claim if it’s good or not but basing off a few reviews I’m tempted to go and do so. My main concern is that excessive violence in anything (whether it be books, games, movies, whatever) isn’t a good substitute for entertainment. Some people find it entertaining but I kind of find it a cheap way to fill in the gaps for two hours. I suppose we’ll see.

    Again, to those who think Bryan and all reviewers like him are “shit”: Go write your own reviews then, then watch as close-minded shits like yourself come in and trash it (which people will ALWAYS do). Not everyone will agree with a review, that’s why they’re based off the subjective opinions of each viewer.

    I think this world is fucked up, you could think everything is fine and dandy and nothing bad ever happens. Nobody’s wrong in the equation you’re just following your own beliefs as I am mine.

    I have some news for Bryan White, I believe you just got trolled pretty hard. also, for what it’s worth, I thought Rampage was an pretty good movie.

    And to Josh, you can follow your own beliefs all you want but it will never make them more righter than mine.

    Always makes me laugh seeing people argue in blogs. Who cares people?

    I haven’t seen any of Boll’s other stinker films or know much about him as a director, but I figure it should be irrelevant when reviewing a piece of work anyway.

    Regardless of its message or meaning, I thought Rampage was put together masterfully. I thought the choices in camera direction were excellent, the editing superb, and the scripted scenes were brought to life by some clever performance and directorial choices.

    The cast (in particular Brendan Fletcher) and Boll did an incredible job of bringing the right flavour to this film. Some of the earlier scenes could have been dead boring off the page or carried zero relevance or tension, but I thought every step towards the moment of violence was boiled up nicely.

    Unfortunately when a massacre like this happens for real in society, we never get a chance to meet the killer or understand and experience the steps that led to the breakdown. Therefore I believe it’s very important to have films that dare to tell these dark stories with this particular type of bluntness. Like it or not in reality this type of modern day sociopath exists and is a product of our society. We all have a duty to examine the way and manner in which an act of violence such as this develops within a person and in this film it was truthfully and accurately portrayed in a way that I believe hasn’t been seen before.

    I greatly respect the fact that this film never apologised and brutally portrayed its violent character. It certainly smacked me right in the face and provoked some long lasting reflection on the subject which to me is the sign of a story that has purpose and has been well told.

    When I finished the movie I thought to myself: “Wow, this is pretty good for a Uwe Boll film.” I almost tricked myself into thinking it was a decent film. However, after further review, that’s entirely incorrect. This movie was garbage, but it was the least shitty film that Boll has created. Don’t confuse that for a good film.

    There are some things in this world that just don’t change. The sun rises in the east, the sky is blue, it’s never a good idea to ask a cop if he smells bacon, and Uwe Boll can’t direct. Not ten years ago, not now, not ever. The first thirty minutes attacks us with a nauseating flurry of flash forwards, random news sound bites, claustrophobic close-ups, and atrocious camera work that was apparently shot by a seven year old on an intense sugar rush. The entire movie is saturated with violence and devoid of any morals at all. The main character goes on a killing spree that looks just like someone enabling “god mode” in Grand Theft Auto. After an hour of indifferently murdering innocents, he murders and frames his friend and gets away with the rampage. Oh boy, I can’t wait to see the new generation of Columbine killers that are inspired by this incredibly irresponsible film.

    Zero Day is a better film if you’re looking for a good plot. I’d recommend you watch that, then reconsider your thoughts on this movie if you thought it was good.

    This is the most waisted time of a movie I have ever seen. Very unrealistic to say the least. Any CSI fanatic can see through this and realize he’s not getting off scot free! His DNA on the cup in the salon, fingerprints on the mask, taser marks on his buddy, fingerprints on the shell casings, the list goes on. It’s amazing crap like this makes it to film. Looks like some terrorist propaganda to me. All it takes is one kid whose been picked on in school to watch some crap like this and it becomes a reality to them. The story line is a bunch of crap too hitler nazi bullshit is all this is.

    The movie was actually pretty good. Acting was good and I can’t find too much wrong with the film.

    Here’s a couple of tips for the CSI homo: If his fingerprints aren’t on file, then they do no good. If his DNA is not on file, once again; no good. You would need probable cause to get these items if they are not on file. There is no magic DNA bank that keeps everyones fingerprints and DNA on file. I could go on about how retarded you are, but the fact that you think CSI, NCIS and all those other cop shows don’t make crap up is proof itself.

    Bryan White is hilarious on here. But I got serious problems with some of the degenerate special cases on here (RODGER MERRITT)talking about how they laughed at all the killing scenes. Hope anyone who knows him or works with him alerts authorities on time before he wigs out.

    It blows my mind that any of you thought this was a good movie. It was awful. There’s barely any explanation as to why the main character goes off killing people the way he does and the only attempt to explain his reasoning is contradicted by his actions. The plot was almost too pointless for me to bother mentioning now. And as far as the acting goes, I don’t know what movie the rest of you were watching. The acting is in this movie is SHIT. I honestly didn’t know who Boll was until reading this so don’t chalk this up to some sort of personal hate for the director. However, he clearly has earned his reputation for being a terrible director.

    As far as all of the arguing on here goes, stop being so silly. No one gives a shit. Also, Bryan, don’t say “I spell pretty good” in a comment that is supposed to be boasting about your skills in grammar.
    It should be “I spell pretty well.”

    I havent seen this because despite this being a good movie I still have no interest in it.

    Yes Uwe made a ton of terrible movies that werent even enjoyable in a campy sense. I can forgive shit directing but what I cant forgive is his arrogant, elitist and assholeish mentality. The way he bashes movie goers and critics in a immature way is just appaling. Like he actually said once that we should be thanking him for making video game based movies and we owe him.

    The fact that everytime he made a video game based movie that tanked worse than hudson hawk (which I love by the way), ripped apart by fans and reviewers he would just complain about them and go on a tyrade before making another. All his video game based movies ruined the chances of actual good ones being made because thats what producers think people want and when it doesnt do well then that makes others less likely to make them. Thats why now we have the occasional resident evil movie shit out by paul anderson and his talentless wife and thats pretty much it. Aside from the hitman movie which actually tried to be a good movie but got no marketing. He single handedly set back video game based movies for a decade with his piss poor attitude.

    So his bad movies aside and his ability to make good movies aside I dont like or want to support uwe simply because he tries to piss people off with the intention of getting attention. I will support bad movies or bad directors as long as they try or atleast make something entertaining but I wont support immaturity and rude behavior.

    I dont hate the man because I dont know him personally, but I dont like him professionally.

    I thought this movie was okay, but I haven’t seen Boll’s other movies. Rumor has it he’s worse than Shymalan. If so, then my okay rating would probably be “pretty good” in comparison.

    It’s very nihilistic and extremely clever (if you won’t twist your moral panties at depicted violence). Yet perhaps its because it is so unpleasant to the average viewer, it may not set the after-movie thoughts in motion. I think many who saw it probably ended up wonder what the HELL they just saw, hating Williamson (you should, I mean he was a psychopath), and totally missing all of the ironic parts. There’s a point to be made, that we’re a superficial society, the world runs on money and corruption, and we all keep buying more and more of what we don’t need with dwindling bank accounts- I think in the beginning, Williamson himself was rather ironic as a character since he was working for minimum wage out of HS and ordering 5 dollar coffees and eating out. The magic in that bit is here- Bill has had enough, he’s reached a pathological level, he’s lashing out against all this excess and ego in society, but here he is inside that system, he knows no better than to buy his expensive macciatos and eat at restaurants. That’s what he’s conditioned to do, and that’s what we all have been conditioned to do. It goes to say that the way the world is run isn’t just bad, it’s far worse than we think we know.

    I feel that when people go ahead and depict such horrible acts in film, videogames, etcetera, it is not just an act of rebellion, it’s more of the trigger to let people who were enraged with this movie contest.

    It is a movie, and I am all for them, the point is to get wrapped up in a different world for two hours, because if you come out of this movie honestly thinking something like Uwe Boll is a crazy person, think again, because the only person who is crazy is the person still bitching about this film.

    Good Job Uwe, you got the idea, keep going!

    Its a sad day when anyone, especially a critic thinks that there is anything good about this movie. The pacing and narrative are terrible. And if you think the “idea” works than you should re watch the movie a few times because it contradicts itself over and over. And honestly, I find it hilarious that in the US we give Muslim women funny looks, we make laws about cops checking the citizenship of Mexicans, but a movie about a handsome white youth tired of the direction of society and killing everyone is somehow idealistic and artistic says alot about us. Brian, are you really Casey Anthony in witness protection? lol (dont get offended its a joke, sir)

    All I kept thinking when watching this movie was, “Why doesn’t somebody find a way to get some electricity through this metal-clad ding-dong and turn him into an over-cooked hot pocket?” The 1-2 combo of smoke grenade and vehicular take-down might have worked as well. Or, just a grenade.

    Most of the people in this forum, I think, missed the mark with this one. It wasn’t about the gore, violence, and ‘action’ sequences. It was about his viewpoint of society.

    His friend was talking about how people need to live in harmony and stop caring about money and try and find ways to become a more perfect union. The main character doesn’t buy into this philosophy of thinking. His main philosophy was ‘survival of the fittest’.

    I mean, honestly people, do you think there aren’t people out there who feel the same way? The people who are in power and have money know that if/when the end of resources comes on Earth, that is all we become is animals. Bill Williamson knew/thought this and got to the punchline first. Our true skin will really show and the friend’s hippie, “love one another and we’ll all live happily ever after” will fall to pieces. It will become dog against dog and the biggest and baddest (and in Williamson’s example) most cunning will be left standing.

    There was a lot of things I found interesting about this movie but one that stood out to me most was that his mother reveals at the end that she was a psychologist. In our times we like to think that these are the kinds of people who know everything there is to know about human nature, human characteristics, our motives and habits; but the Bill’s mother couldn’t even identify that her son was a full-blown sociopath (not so much the antisocial behaviors but the complete lack of conscious) or what most people would have labeled him as.

    This movie made me ask myself a serious question: what is the meaning of life? Another interesting aspect of the movie was how in the beginning, when he was simply working on collecting money, his parents wanted him to move out and get his own place. It wasn’t until he said “I have decided to re-enroll in college” that his parents stopped nagging him. They told him things like, “you will feel so much better now that you have goals and dreams”. But whose dreams were they really? How many of us have been that we need to have these dreams? From the time I was born there was this sequence that was implyed, or even more, BRANDED onto me; high-school then college, then get a job, then start a family, then work for your family to get them their “needs” (while simultaneously and subconsciously continuing the process), then retire, then die. But as I put in quotations before, what do we really NEED? We work have become slaves to our own invention of time. Only when we come back to basics do we understand that the only important thing in this world is survival.

    Just watched the film. I wasn’t fond of the cinematography and some of the violence was rather gratuitous, acting overall was decent, but the protagonist… antagonist actually, was well acted. Overall interesting movie, with some decent action and then some disturbing scenes of murder. But i am confused with the point of this film. I’m hearing its clever and meaningful, yet all i saw just a young man who snapped and decided to go kill people. Perhaps the film is a representation of our fucked up fantasties, or it was just a mindless movie, but i am open to the clear true point of the film.

    This movie was fuckin badass. Good job on acting by brendan and great job on how clever the rampage was. Whoever talks bad about this movie is just a fuckin pussy who cant deal with violence in a world full of it. So shut the fuck up u lil bitches and leave these movies to people who can actually handle what they choose to watch

    Not a movie buff. I’ve never heard of Uwe whatever his name is. Streamed it on netflix as a suggestion from them :headscratch:. Started watching and I couldn’t look away. Love the awkward acting moments. BTW 2nd amendment doesn’t exist everywhere bud-just look for the highest crime rates and you’ll where. Good review-thanks.

    There is a lot in this movie that I feel a lot of people can relate to, the state of the earth because of overpopulation inefficiency of our resource consumption, and pollution, Being forced out of our houses to go to college for some thing we don’t give a fuck about, assholes we come across as we live, and finally the whiny do nothing all talk windbags like Bills friend Evan, who likes to talk about how the world should be run but put no real effort into trying to build any kind of solution, Bill and I share some very similar outlooks definitely like what Ar touched on, It’s all just ideals not set in reality, Bill saw a simple solution to a complicated and ongoing problem,Just take more people out of the equation and everything in general becomes easier and more enjoyable, more resources means lower food prices gas housing, everything just becomes more plentiful but most of all, it means we can sustain ourselves, ”cleanse so maybe the rest of us can sustain a little bit of life” very simple and easy to understand concept and it would work guaranteed there’s just no real downfall to having less people on the earth it’s one of the most of the simple and easy solutions and it all could have been solved by simply making EVERYONE have one child but honestly who’s going to comply with that?, you and I both the answer, So whats left?, waiting for a miracle? I can understand his desperation, it’s a desperate situation with no real solution being brought to the table, It’s really all our fault in the end and we will all be held responsible for what’s coming in the future, and I fear it’ll be worse than anything a million Bill Williamson’s could dish out
