Film-Maker Challenges Critics To All-Out Brawl
German horror director UWE BOLL is so fed up with receiving bad reviews from movie critics he is challenging his detractors to a filmed fight. Boll, whose movies ALONE IN THE DARK and HOUSE OF THE DEAD are based on video games, says he will fly his critics to meet him and will then fight them in a boxing ring. The film-maker is incensed by an online petition which has 13,327 signatures of people asking him to stop making movies. Boll, who has also invited ROGER AVARY and QUENTIN TARANTINO to join his fight, plans to air the fights on the internet. He the plans to edit clips into his latest film POSTAL. Boll says, "I'm fed up with people slamming my films without seeing them. Many journalists make value judgments on my films based on the opinions of one or two thousand internet voices. Half of those opinions come from people who've never watched my films. "If critics want to bring Uwe Boll down, here is their chance to physically bring him down and have the entire world watch them do it."
