Director Uwe Boll Returns with a Political Message and a Trailer in Bailout: The Age of Greed

Uwe Boll is a difficult filmmaker to classify. He loves fantasy films as seen in his In The Name of the King series of films. He likes to produce video game action adventures such as the Bloodrayne series. And, he will occasionally make a political drama like Darfur (2009) or Auschwitz (2011). Bailout: The Age of Greed falls into this final category.

Bailout: The Age of Greed tells a story of a desperate man, Jim (Dominic Purcell). His wife (Erin Karpluk) has become sick, he has lost his savings because of hospital bills and creditors want to take his house. If that is not enough, he loses his job as a security guard because of his financial troubles. There is little he can do and the frustration mounts when his wife takes her own life. Jim turns against the banks and government, who he blames for his misfortunes.

The first trailer for this film is below. And, it is a bit of a blowout as Jim takes up arms against those who economically persecute him. The reel is visceral and a stark look at our harsh economic times. Have a look inside.

Release Date: 2012.

Director: Uwe Boll.

Cast: Dominic Purcell, Erin Karpluk, Edward Furlong, John Heard, Keith David, Michael Paré, Lochlyn Munro, Tyron Leitso, Mike Dopud, Barclay Hope, Heather Feeney, and Eric Roberts.
