Uwe Boll ([ˈuːvə ˈbɔl]; born June 22, 1965) is a German director, producer and screenwriter, whose work includes several films adapted from video games. He finances his own films through his Boll KG and Event Film Productions production companies. Many of his films are produced on low budgets. He has been described as the "Ed Wood of the 21st Century" due to making one critically panned movie after another. Yet, he is notable for getting famous actors such as Oscar winner Ben Kingsley, Ray Liotta, Jason Statham and Michael Madsen to star in his movies.

Biography

Uwe Boll est un réalisateur connu pour ses adaptations de jeux vidéo au cinéma. L'insuccès critique de ses films aurait normalement pu ralentir sa carrière de réalisateur. Ce ne fut pas le cas grâce au système de financement allemand. Il l’explique dans son livre Comment faire du cinéma en Allemagne, se comparant à l’occasion à David Lynch ou Martin Scorsese, alors qu'il est plus souvent taxé d'être un « nouvel Ed Wood », et est surnommé par la presse américaine master of error.

Il se fait remarquer en septembre 2006 en défiant ses détracteurs et critiques aussi bien amateurs que professionnels à la boxe. Uwe Boll n’ayant pas signalé son ancienne carrière de boxeur, il remporte le défi et déclare : « Un poing dans la gueule, c’est le meilleur moyen d’aimer mes films ! » Une pétition sur internet ayant obtenu plus de trois cent mille signatures a été lancée pour le supplier d’arrêter le cinéma. Pourtant Boll continue d’adopter une attitude provocante en déclarant par exemple, en 2007, que « Postal est meilleur que tous les films présentés au Festival de Cannes cette année. Mais quelle que soit la bouse qu’ils aient tournée, ce sont toujours les mêmes réalisateurs qui sont invités. ».

Uwe Boll est chargé de l’adaptation du jeu vidéo Far Cry pour l’année 2007, le tournage est prévu au Canada et un rôle a été mis aux enchères sur Internet.

Uwe Boll a également proposé à la société Blizzard Entertainment d’acheter leurs droits sur un film traitant de l’univers Warcraft, qui aurait refusé l'offre.

En 2010, il déclenche la polémique en diffusant la perturbante bande-annonce de son dernier film : Auschwitz, un film dont il affirme la vocation pédagogique pour les jeunes allemands.

On citera notamment, parmi les films les « mieux » notés par les critiques et spectateurs, ceux qui traitent de sujets réels tels que Darfur ou Heart of America (inspiré par la tuerie de Littleton), Tunnel Rats, sur la guerre du Vietnam, mais aussi ses films prenant pour thématiques des sujets de société, tels que Stoic, qui traite de la délinquance et des prisons, Rampage, inspiré des tueurs de type spree-killer, qui est le second film de Boll à se centrer sur le sujet après Heart of America, ou encore Bailout : The Age of Greed, sorti en France sous le titre Assault on Wall Street, et qui traite de la crise économique et son impact sur les classes moyennes et populaires.

Il a déclaré en 2016 qu'après avoir réalisé Rampage 3, il allait prendre sa retraite de réalisateur faute de revenus suffisants, la chute de ventes de DVD et de Blu-ray ne lui permettant plus de financer ses films. Il ne faisait d'ailleurs plus de film à gros budget destiné au cinéma depuis l'échec commercial et critique de son film King Rising, au nom du roi.

Immediately after committing his rampage in Tenderville, Bill Williamson disappeared and had been living off the grid for years with the money he stole from a bank during the massacre. The video recording of his rants about violent population control had since garnered millions of views and turns Bill into an Internet sensation. In the present day, Bill uses the stolen money to finance yet another killing spree, purchasing a number of weapons, including two fully automatic, military-grade M4 carbines, and constructing homemade explosives. After making final preparations for the killing spree, Bill shaves his head clean, dons his suit of body armor, and sets the interior of his house on fire. He drives to an alleyway and uses its cover to shoot several random pedestrians undetected, before trying to enter a bingo hall, only to leave after finding it is closed.

He decides to team up with his Uncle Dave, a slovenly con artist turned doomsday cult leader who owes the US government over a million dollars in back-taxes. With the help of Uncle Dave's right-hand man Richie and an army of big-breasted, scantily clad cult members, the Dude devises a plan to hijack a shipment of 2,000 Krotchy Dolls, a rare, sought-after plush toy resembling a giant scrotum.
