I just saw this movie today. It's actually pretty good, though not great. If I didn't know that Uwe Boll directed and wrote it, I never would have guessed. -MT2008 18:22, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

It says directed by Uwe Boll on the cover

I know. Hence the reason I posed the situation as hypothetical. -MT2008 15:09, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Armored perps

You know, regardless of how much armor a perp has, one chest shot from a Barrett M82A1 ... and he's down.... ;) MoviePropMaster2008 17:00, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Heck .300 Winmag will do it most of the time. I can tell you that just by reading up on body armor specs and checking the ballistic charts.Rockwolf66 17:05, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
What's even more absurd in this movie is that he doesn't encounter private citizens, let alone cops, armed with AR-15s or other "assault"-type weapons and get taken down within minutes. In just about any small town, that's what one would expect. But since this is a movie (and since Boll is an America-hating leftist), I guess only evil people are allowed to have the military-style weapons. -MT2008 00:44, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
I saw this last night (the wonders of the internet and blank discs) and I actually loved it. It's the first film of Boll's that I actually was impressed with, and I would put it in my top 25 movies of all time. Original plot, some pretty sweet gunplay, and the ending nobody would see coming. Overall a great movie, a 9 out of 10 from me. Congratz Uwe, you've finally created something original and good. M14fanboy
M14fanboy, I hope you are being sarcastic. Cause this movie is crap Excalibur01

Yeah, this movie is just as stupid as any other Uwe Boll movie. This was pretty much the guy's middle finger to America. I mean, how does a guy even come across weapons like an MP7 much less 2 of them and a MP9. And no cop has an AR-15? Bullshit. The guy is wearing a paintball mask and goggles...A shotgun to the face should put him down. Excalibur01 22:05, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

The politics suck, and the portrayal of gun laws is BS, but I actually thought this was a pretty interesting movie. Brendan Fletcher was good in it, and the twist at the end was pretty clever. Oh, and the bingo scene was friggin' priceless! -MT2008 22:50, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
I WILL admit he planned this out very well,Highlight for Spoilers: framed his buddy and everything.. Hid his guns, built armor himself. It's a small town, so I guess he just killed all the cops in the police station. Population control? He's randomly killing people. I mean he's not targetting the old, cripple, disabled, the people who seems to be his actual target that he preaches about. I mean he wanted to wipe the Earth of people who are a waste of space, so...why just randomly kill people. And he stole all that money. I mean, he's not some kind of extremist, or a terrorist, or making a political statement. He's just a fucking back robber, plain and simple. He just killed a bunch of people in the process.

You're thinking about this the wrong way. It's not whether you agree with Bill's ideas (on the contrary, if you did agree with them, I'd be worried). It's how the movie is written, acted, filmed, etc. Also, you might not want to spoil the movie for people who haven't seen it. -MT2008 23:02, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
Sorry about that. I guess I was just looking too much into this movie and how stupid the plot it. It's the perfect movie about how a crazy guy plans the perfect massacre and bank robbery. Excalibur01 23:05, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
While I don't agree with the ideals, Fletcher did a good job, the plot was good, the ending was pretty unique, and overall I truly enjoyed this film. M14fanboy
Yeah, likewise. When somebody I know saw this movie at a film festival last year and told me it was good, I was incredulous. I told myself, "Uwe Boll making a good movie? This I gotta see." Then I saw the trailer and was impressed, and the full movie didn't disappoint. Well done, Boll. That being said, no more awful video game adaptations. -MT2008 00:34, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

I agree, no more video game adaptions. He wanted to do Metal Gear Solid and Hideo Kojima told him to piss off Excalibur01 01:59, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

An MGS game would be hilarious, just ten hours of prologue and shit before the actual movie. But yeah, Boll should stick to original stuff, keep off the movies. M14fanboy

I did think it was odd that nobody else had a gun. Of course, if a heavily armed and armored maniac with automatic weapons was storming down the street, you may think twice about engaging. Still, a .30-06 probably could have put him down with little difficulty. Y'know, I think this film may have been trying to get the message across "People shouldn't have guns. They'll go on rampages." For me, it did the opposite. If someone had a rifle and used it, everything would have been stopped. -SasquatchJim.

With out actually thinking into the movie, it isn't bad, very cool ending. I caught it on netflix with some friends over, so we made videogame references the entire wy through. But it is a little outrageous that not a single rifle was fired against him to solve the problem. I also found the description on Netflix amusing. According to Netflix he was apparently armed with semi-automatic weapons. --Glockness Monster 23:49, 23 July 2011 (CDT)
