Movie View- The Punisher: War Zone

Yes, I paid 9.50 to see the new Punisher movie.

Here’s what happened in that movie:
The previews were bad, which is a very bad sign.
The movie was hokey about a minute and a half into it when the irrational and over the top violence hit a high note.
Then nothing really happened for a really long time.
Then the mob hired gangstas, yakuza, and irish punk rockers to kill the Punisher. Some old dude and his white guys were on the Punisher’s side, which was never explained, and they appeared and disappeared all within about 9 seconds.
The Punisher kills the yakuza gangsta-punks with every weapon on earth.
Newman from Seinfeld gets shot in the head. He blamed Jerry Seinfeld and I think Kramer drove off in a mail truck.

Now, let me say that I honestly liked Ray Stevenson and Dominc West. West played Jigsaw, and he did fine. The movie was a little too “comic-booky” for my tastes. The script was terrible. Most of the acting was real bad. The direction was bad. Production was fine.

Overall this movie was just as bad as you already know it is. I give it 2 flaccid D’s, a pop and a rock and let’s go.

  1. First off….Great Blog….!

    I won’t attempt an
    objective review. My knife is in it….LOL
    I loved the movie.
    It was made by hard driving people about a hardened character. who refuses to ignore the darker side of realitys we all face in today’s world .
    He has perfected the job of human trash removal .
    The word RELENTLESS (Websters Dictionary defines the term)
    re-lent-less; Unmoved by love or pity: Unceasing, as without mercy. Fits this guy to a T.
    Some people can’t stomach the truth that this character illustrates so well.
    Frank Castle is doing a job……he’s doing it because a million
    others who ‘s job it really is …are to soft, fat, corrupt , scared
    or lazy to do Justice.
    Frank does it without a mask or a cape, he says little about it because deep inside it hurts him to know that this is the
    only answer to a problem. Unfettered, the corrupt dish out untold human misery.
    Frank is the sin eater, the True Dark Knight.
    Unlike Batman, Superman, Spiderman and the rest of the comic crew, Frank Castle is a modern day Wyatt Earp.
    He promptly and effectively answers the call in the order received.

    When the smoke clears in the real human experience… comment remains… even though coined by a real life villain who’s idea of right was on Jigsaw’s side of the fence……. “Justice comes from
    the barrel of a gun”.
    It’s HARD, FAST and BRUTAL….but….TRUE.

    Could the movie have been better………of course, and Micky Mouse could have been better too.
    I think some exceptionally vehement anti Punisher War Zone Movie reviews….are based on internal Cat Fighting in the movie business,
    and let’s face it….Frank Castle is NOT Politically Correct.

    Thanks to Ray Stevenson, Lexi Alexander, Jon Barton and all for this Great Movie.
