This movie was bad. Very very bad.


Entertainment-
It was gory and stuff, but there was no depth beyond. Blowy-stuff-up.

For the gore, physics were sacrificed. The whole point of a live action movie is for it to be relatable to the real world. So why was one man able to stab someone THROUGH THE NECK with a broken goblet? Why was the Punisher able to cut a man's head in half with his knife? (horizontally and a perfect clean cut.) Why was he able to reproduce the same clean cut effect with a shotgun? And most greviously Why was he able to PUNCH A HOLE THROUGH A MAN'S FACE?

Originality
The Punisher is one of those revenge guys. Sasuke was better at it. Punisher vs Random mob gang people.

Fluency-
I didn't get a sense of progression in this movie at all. It all seemed like an excuse to get as much blood and swearing as possible on the screen.

Plot-
Never had a clue what was going on. Don't think that was my fault.

Characters-
It's possible that this was the intention, but I sympathized more with the bad guys than with the Punisher! There's one scene where the Punisher's current baddy's are holding a 4-year old hostage. (Bad) The Punisher and a completely impotent black cop guy burst into the house to rescue hostages.(Good) Black cop dude begins,
"You are under arrest"
Castle blows the man's head off with a shotgun. WTF, the crooks had the decency to not kill the little girl and her mother.

The only characters that had any personality were minor villain-lackeys. All were carribean free runners who Castle Viciously murders. One was shot in both knees, thrown onto conveniently placed spikes and had his neck broken by Castle landing on it Jumping off a building. Another was shot with a portable grenade launcher while he was half-way through an amusing free-running maneuver.
Distinction of Voice
It was gorn. All gorn is gorn.

Enhancers
This movie gets top marks for being F&%$king confusing!

Grammar/Spelling
N/A

Description
It's a movie, everything was clear. Lol

Theme
A badly done splice between "There is no god" and "God's an asshole". All possible psychological anything was obscured by cursey-shooty-bangy-bloody-death.

I didn't really like it either. There was a plot, however. The exposition was just really, really bad. Hell, the plot in general was just bad. I just finished watching the first Punisher, and it was so much better. Sure, War Zone got the origins better, and more supporting characters, but those things don't make a movie.

I actually liked Ray Stevenson as Punisher better. He just looked like he was straight from those Tim Bradstreet covers. The movie however was awful. Pshyecyaya is totally on point with his Solomon grading of this movie. It stunk. Oh and the free-running thing you keep referring to is called Parkour. Americans always want to rename something.

Parkour is cool.

Pseudonym, like acronym, or synonym.


It really isn't.


And Ray Stevenson is more Punisher-like, but Thomas Jane is just more badass.

Stevenson is the guy who guys around saying "I WILL KILL YOU!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!"

Jane would say "B**ch, please," and walk away victorious while his victim's head explodes from the awesomeness.
