Uwe Boll Destroys His Critics


Posted September 25, 2006 - By Stephen Johnson

German film-maker Uwe Boll takes a lot of hits on the internet. Digitial critics hated his videogame flicks House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, and Bloodrayne, and were not shy about hurling invectives and insults all over the cyberinterweb.

Boll got his chance to settle the score this weekend when he boxed four of his detractors, one after the other, in a series of matches sponsored by Goldenpalace.com.

As predicted and expected: Ex-boxer Boll annihilated his denigrators. Check out the video of Richard "Lowtax" Kyanka from something awful having his bell rung:

In typical, whiny internet fashion, some of the boxers complained after the matches about their loss. Jeff Sneider of Ain't It Cool News  told the BBC this after dancing with Raging Boll: "I think he's a jerk...This might be PR, but I don't want to keep getting punched in the head."

Lowtax's post-fight reactions on Kotaku also suggested that Boll hit too hard:
"He kept saying it was just a PR stunt and he wasn't really going to box for real for serious blah blah blah. NEVER trust a German."

Guys? It was a boxing match. Being punched in the head is the point.

None of this changes the quality of Boll's films, however...

For more Boll goodness, read my exclusive interview with him.
