Before Uwe Boll began parodying his career in an attempt to pretend "your movies suck!" meant "your movies are controversial!", there was House of the Dead, a perfect storm of budget, ineptitude, and enthusiasm backed by a refusal to put any effort into what actual makes a movie good. It sits right on the border between horrible and horribly entertaining, but is never fun. The commentary, with Boll and star Jonathan Cherry taking center stage, however, is. Boll brags and laughs through the whole thing, so proud of the final product. Cherry is audibly embarrassed by much of the film, even saying so much. He's never mean-spirited when he points out the movie's many, many shortcomings, which only makes Boll's continually changing the subject so much more amusing. "You're the only one who thinks that's funny, Uwe," Cherry says when Boll guffaws at a forgetful joke. Very true, Jonny, ol' boy. Try to ignore that Boll spent the next decade intentionally courting controversy with Nazi imagery, and you may have the closest thing to an oblivious, self-congratulating, Ed Wood-type commentary we're likely to get.

Uwe Boll, joined by post-production supervisor Jonathan Shore, producer Shawn Williamson, and actor Will Sanderson (not Jonathan Cherry as credited here), spends a good deal of the commentary patting himself on the back for making the "most video game movie" ever.
