Great episode. Say what you will about Boll's films but the guy doesn't mince words.

Yes, it’s quite good. Much better actually than the other one that was put out about nine years ago, RAGING BOLL.

I guess this film, almost a decade old now, looks a bit like a masterpiece compared to some of Dolph's recent films. Boll is kind of an auteur in comparison to some of the guys he's been working with in the last 2 years.

Boll's films are arguably some of the most terrible ever made - I put it down to a pure lack of taste - now some people will say that is an opinion and therefore subjective - however if you look at ITNOFK 2 - at least Dolph looks like he's having a bit of fun and the production values look twenty times that of stuff like Acceleration.

One thing I've always said about Bay, Snyder, and Boll (in his own league), is that as shit as they are, they at least have their own distinctive mark. Whereas there's so many 'directors' that have no mark. Not good, not awful, nothing distinct. Just as basic and functional as you can get and just do a job. Boll is one of cinemas great trash merchants but if he has a vision for a film, for better or worse (mostly worse) he never compromises it.

I don't think he had much fun making this one, this was right at the beginning of his divorce which was he took the job in the first place... :?

I haven't watched it since its release but my impression was that the film was both much better than I expected in some ways and yet still dreadful and cumbersome in others. Regarding the production value, Boll had a good system in place, regular crews and all that figured out in Vancouver in those days, so it was like a lot of production aspects were already well prepared and ready to make the most out of a $4-5 million movie like this.
