There's something to offend everyone in this nihilist farce by German director Uwe Boll, which opens with Al Qaeda terrorists bickering in the cockpit of a plane as they head for a skyscraper and closes with George W. Bush and Osama Bin Laden skipping through a field hand-in-hand as mushroom clouds bloom on the horizon. Like some of Boll's earlier features (BloodRayne, House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark), it's based on a popular video game, and the satire operates on the same principle as the eponymous game—shoot at anything that moves. As a result, some gags are hilarious and some are vile, though you and I may not agree on which are which. With Zack Ward, Jackie Tohn, Dave Foley, J.K. Simmons, Verne Troyer, Semour Cassel, and Boll as himself, wearing lederhosen and presiding over a Nazi-themed amusement park. R, 96 min.
