Sewer Rats trailer

02.11.2008
I try to be as fair to Uwe Boll as possible. Sure, he's made some horrible, horrible films. And sure, I could say something like hey, watch another of them? I'd rather Uwe Boil my own face! But the truth is I don't really think he's that bad a director. He certainly, by no stretch of the imagination is a good director and he definitely makes down right awful films with a frightening regularity. But in my opinion he ain't as bad a director as people often make out. I just think he's a bad writer and a bad story-teller and that if he would take a good script by a good writer and make it as it was, rather than write in sex-scenes and CGI mutant dogs like he did with ALONE IN THE DARK, he might have something at least mediocre. Anyway, the trailer for his new film 1968: TUNNEL RATS has hit the webs and I really think if you didn't know about it already, or it didn't have Boll's name at the beginning, you probably wouldn't know who made it. As is though, it is Uwe Boll, and as such has as much a chance as any film has of being a total piece of shit. Check it out below:



Thanks to 'Movie Man' for the tip!

Seems just as derivative and dispassionate as his other movies. Shots of snakes, shaky-cam war scenes, soldiers saying lines like "I don't wanna die out here!" It's his usual ME TOO attitude that irks me.

Sewer Rats?

At first I thought this was a trailer for a film-adaptation of the old Sega-CD game Sewer Rats.

The money he spends should

go to a children's charity. Or a homeless shelter. The thing about Boll's movies is that he makes it like a high school film student would. Watching each one, I cringe about how the material he has - whether he wrote or is directing is - how he botches up so bad. Ive seen third graders get more out of the fellow actors in a play, than what he does with the material. I sometimes think I see a flash of brillance or perhaps a good scene coming and then the film manages to cut itself even lower in

I seriously think he saw a bad movie on tv one night and figured that was the way to make them forever. Uwe - go back to film school and read a book - especially one about storytelling.
Other than that, good luck with the film
and please handle the subjects of our vets half way decent.

Amazingly, this could potentially be a decent movie. I've never seen any of Boll's spew before (other than clips and trailers), but this seems to have a somewhat solid storyline and premise. It's based off of history rather than a videogame, so it gets rid of his normal schlock fare. Have to wait and see more on this one...

Well, first off, I don't like Uwe Boll, never have. However, with Postal I realized something: people can learn. While that is obviously not a particularly well-made movie, it showed that he could adapt to his shortcomings and create something entertaining in a Troma kind of way.

Having said that, I think this trailer shows what might be Boll learning from his past mistakes and evolving into at least an OK filmmaker. Of course, it could just as easily suck major tufts of old man ball

Of course, it could just as easily suck major tufts of old man ball hair, however I'd like to think that Boll could learn from all of his criticism. The trailer looked entertaining enough, and I guess we'll see what he's capable of with more serious fare.

good

This looks nothing like his other films, this one looks good. And I dont even mean (I'm surprised too) good for him, I mean actually good. We'll have to see.

I don't know

It really didn't look like an Uwe Boll movie from the trailer. At least it looks to be historically accurate with the tunnels of Củ Chi and all. So I guess I will see if he can actually make a decent movie, although it probably won't be the case. At least it's a better story than his others.

I've realized

If Boll makes his own trailers, then he should just stick to that. Every trailer released for his movie makes each one appear decent.

How does being "bad writer and a bad story-teller" NOT make you an awful director? Uwe Boll wouldn't know a good story if it raped him. Being a terrible story-telling makes you a bad director.

Well, at least he tried. Maybe if he didn't add a guy being stabbed through the mouth at the end of the trailer, the film would've at least been somewhat respectable.

Nice try.

mmmmm naw

Looks like a pretty shitty movie but I guess I'll still check it out just for kicks, liked the music featured in the last bit of the trailer though.

C'mon...how many times does this man need to be plummeted towards the ground; Uwe Boll should not be a film maker. Nuff' said.
