Uwe Boll dishes up another Rampage

Believe it or not, Dr. Uwe Boll has made one decent movie in his career. That's right, the man behind House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, and countless other crappy video game adaptations has made one good flick. One.

That film was Rampage, and I'll wait for you to pick your collective jaws up off the floor before I continue.

Boll's 2009 flick is about a man who builds a suit of body armour and goes on a killing spree because of how pissed off he is at the world. Yes, it's exploitive and violent as fuck, but that's what Shawn and I liked about it when we reviewed Rampage during our second season. Apparently it's Boll's best reviewed movie too, which isn't saying much.

Now the man's gone and made a sequel called Rampage: Capital Punishment. This time our violent antihero heads to Washington and holds a number of people hostage as a means of spreading his political platform against the One Percent.

The Occupy movement could've learned a thing or two if they'd watched more Uwe Boll movies.
Rampage: Capital Punishment brings back Brendan Fletcher and adds Lochlyn Munro and Mike Dopud to the cast. It hits DVD and VOD in the U.S. on Aug. 19 and comes to Canada Oct. 21.
