      Matthew Rozsa Mic.com My goal of roasting Boll's film was thwarted by the simple fact that his movie wasn't just better than his normal fare. It was actually good. Genuinely, legitimately good. Rated: 3.5/4 Jun 11, 2020 Full Review Anton Bitel Projected Figures anyone drawn to this film in the hope of deliriously tasteless schlock is bound to be disappointed, for Auschwitz is an unexpectedly serious, sober and sensitive history lesson from Boll.

      Audience Member This has to be the worst made movie ever - I actually don't even mean just about the holocaust. It is simply the worst made movie of any kind, ever. This director should not ever produce another movie of any kind on any subject. I think what he did is a total betrayal - not because I don't think he has compassion. He literally lacks any skill whatsoever in actually creating a viable movie. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A terribly done and and incredibly inaccurate docudrama from the infamously terrible filmmaker Uwe Boll that shows the inhuman atrocities of the Nazis without a single ounce of respect for the victims and a single ounce of humanity to offset the mind-numbing violence and gratuitous nudity. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Auschwitz is an awful docudrama that tries to recount the atrocities of the Nazis during the Second World War. The film might have been a good documentary, but the level of inaccuracies presented here is far too many to mention. We are given a film that is a poorly thought out, poorly researched documentary on what happened in Auschwitz. The level of inaccuracy here is insulting to the victims and survivors because I feel that if you are to tackle a subject about something as tragic as the Holocaust, you ought to do it right. This is a poorly made effort, with no sense of trying to capture the real events on film, and the methods recreated on film, are not accurate and questionable. This should have been far better, and it's a shame that the film had this level of inaccurate content within the film in order to recreate what happened. However, Auschwitz is a pointless, awful film that doesn't do the subject justice. The most stunning work on the Holocaust is Claude Lanzmann nine hour documentary Shoah, which is the finest work on the subject. That film goes in depth about the crimes committed by the Nazis and it's told in a brilliant, subtle way that it stays with you long after you've seen it. But this film on the other is a film to avoid and it not worth seeing because you'll never get the full story of the Holocaust out of such a thinly layered movie. This film doesn't go in depth, and you are left wanting to know a lot more on the Holocaust. Give Shoah a viewing instead, you'll be glad you did. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Uwe Boll was never much of a director, I will grant you that. And the bookend interviews here are not focused. But what you witness in this movie, in all it's stomach turning brutality, and "banality of evil" understatement, is without question the most honest and thoughtful movie ever made about the Holocaust. There is no salvation, no redemption, just immeasurable horror. You can almost smell the crematory fires, and I panicked a bit when I coughed during the gas chamber scene. It is unrelentingly visceral and it will disturb you. And that is the point. It outrages the conscience to witness the precise depiction Boll put on film; but using that as an objection against this film, misses the point by miles. Even Adolph Eichmann was reduced to silence after witnessing what happened at Birkenau; even the architect couldn't stomach the slaughterhouse he built. And if we are to say "never again" and mean it, we must allow our consciences to be shocked. Because if we don't, we're living in a fantasy land where some sliver of good can always be salvaged from limitless evil. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Brutal and powerful docu-movie! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member part documentry,part film...a shocking look from a German director on Auschwitz...and that in 2010 that 50% of the German population don`t know anything about the Holocaust........
