A security guard for an armored truck, Jim (Dominic Purcell) is a blue-collar New Yorker who works hard to earn a living. His wages support himself and his wife Rosie (Erin Karpluk), who is on the upswing recovering from a near-fatal illness. Yet things start to fall apart after Rosie's health insurance stops covering her treatment and Jim's life savings are lost via a disastrous investment his stockbroker had advised him to make. As a row of professional and personal dominoes falls, Jim is confronted by the realization that, after being abused and exploited by financial institutions for far too long, he has only one choice: to strike back. From the mind of notorious German writer/director Uwe Boll (House of the Dead), Assault on Wall Street is excoriating look at the American financial system that is sure to stir up plenty of Occupy-esque sentiment.
Uwe Boll is fired up. Pissed off. He hopes his new movie Assault on Wall Street makes bankers worry about getting shot in the face. Known for his earlier work, which has been notoriously derided on the Internet, Uwe (pronounced Ooooh-Vey) has made one of his most personal and heartfelt movies to date. And it may just be his best film.
Once a whipping post for online critics who called him the 'worst filmmaker to ever live', Boll's criticisms have grown increasingly quite as he proves himself to be a worthy filmmaker with each new project he takes on. Assault on Wall Street follows the story of Jim, (Dominic Purcell) an armored security guard who loses his life's savings and his health insurance. After his sick wife dies because of this, he takes revenge on the American financial system in a style only Germany's most infamous director could conjure.Read More
