14A - Advisories: Crude Coarse Language & Violence

Tired of nerds and armchair directors slamming his (alleged) cinematic masterpieces BLOODRAYNE, ALONE IN THE DARK and HOUSE OF THE DEAD, besieged German director Uwe Boll decides that if the Marquess of Queensbury rules don’t apply to cyberspace, then he’ll bring cyberspace to a squared circle in Vancouver. Boll invites six of his most vehement opponents in the blogosphere—individuals who have called for Boll to retire, die or both—in an effort to hold them accountable for their words, an act most athletes and politicians have likely dreamed about. Director Dan West’s first feature paints a portrait of a man from a good family who is part misunderstood artist and part Joe Pesci from GOODFELLAS; by the end of the film, the audience is left to decide if Boll is truly deserving of our sympathy, and contemplate the effect that the internet—a place where anyone can have a virtual soapbox—has on the creative process.
