Bloodrayne: The Third Reich DVD Review This slipshod inattention to detail is, like his movies themselves, becoming ever more grating, and once more one is left with the overwhelming feeling that the world would be a better place if Uwe Boll would just stop making movies.

Bloodrayne: The Third Reich

Arguably the worst director of all time, hamfisted German Uwe Boll has been dubbed ‘the Jonas Brothers of filmmakers’ by one of his kinder critics (Michael Bay called him a ‘fucking idiot’) and over the past two decades has been responsible for some of the most abominable excrescence ever to be shat out onto the screen.  Known mostly for his video game adaptations such as House of the Dead and Alone in the Dark, the latter of which has a 1% Fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes, Boll’s inability to put a decent film together is matched only by his astonishing sensitivity to criticism, a distinctly unfortunate trait in someone who garners so much of it.  His usual response is to challenge his detractors, amongst them Michael Bay, to a bout of fisticuffs, and failing that to punish them (and the viewing public) by making more films. 

Bloodrayne: The Third Reich is Boll’s latest abomination, and the third instalment in his Bloodrayne franchise to date.  As is to be expected it’s a real turd of a movie, with little in the way of redeeming qualities other than the occasional glimpse of Nattassia Malthe’s pert rear in one of several gratuitous, if eye-catching, lesbian sequences.  Malthe once more stars as Rayne, a half-human bloodsucker hell-bent on kicking Nazi tail.  There’s a mad doctor loosely based on Mengele and played by Ron Howard’s brother Clint, some evil Nazi ‘commandant’ who needs Rayne’s blood to make Hitler immortal, plenty of bad acting and no shortage of unconvincing dialogue, then 76 minutes later the end credits roll.  The set dressings are appalling, as are the editing and camerawork (although the lighting is quite good), and though much effort has been put into making the costumes approximately period accurate the Nazi officers nonetheless salute each other in the American manner, rather than the straight-arm fascist fashion.  This slipshod inattention to detail is, like his movies themselves, becoming ever more grating, and once more one is left with the overwhelming feeling that the world would be a better place if Uwe Boll would just stop making movies.
