Good Movie, Poor Adaption
If you want a shoot'em up, bang bang then this is great. If you want the Punisher... almost but not quite. In the comic, Punisher was a man the heroes didn't like because he was too extreme. Note, one of the charges against the Punisher is for shooting a man for littering. The Punisher would have been far more ruthless than in the movie. The Punisher van was nowhere to be seen. The country western hick assassin was pathetic. (Okay, it was comic bookish. The song was cool.) But now that I've said all that, a few good things. The movie was pretty tight technically. Weapons were used well, no silly neverending ammunition, no 500 yards pistol shots. Lots of body-armor and heavy weapons. I won't comment on the one hand to hand fight... you all know what I mean. The GTO was cool. Ultimately I will say it was a good movie and I enjoyed it and will watch it again. I would recommend it as a good movie for its genre. If you are looking for true to the comics, well, that's not gonna work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
