Yes, we were one of the movie news sites that filed a report at Fantastic Fest declaring that Uwe Boll might have finally made a good movie. Was it just a fluke? Was it just a case of the broken clock being right every once in a while (twice a day)? Or might Boll go on to make some other fun films?
His next movie is an entry into the disaster genre, with a film called Storm about the biblical end of the world. Of course, Boll had no part in writing this film, as the screenwriting credits point to Canadian scribe Tim McGregor. It doesn’t look great, and yes, it still screams “I’m a direct-to-dvd feature film” but the acting and dialogue seem to be well above the normal bar we’re use in a Boll production (which to be fair, was set very low).
